you cuold also try using it with a pendulum.  since it's a rather large board, you might want a longer string or chain than usual.  and you could propbably find some really nice stones to use as the weight..maybe an amytheist or quartz crystal.  i enjoy using pendulums sometimes. Cheesy

I have this masquerade ball to go to this Saturday and nothing to wear !!  So I made the dress last night in a crappy jersey I had stashed to practice - so freaking easy!  Anyway, I'm a chubster girl and large chested and I was wondering about the boob tubes people have been making.  I was thinking of just making the waistband extra wide instead of making a separate tube top.
Have others tried this?  Do you think a separate or integrated tube would be best?  I've got a limited amount of fabric to work with and I don't wanna mess this up.

133  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Starting a photo course in 1 week & don't know how to use my camera! HELP!! on: September 23, 2006 10:41:29 AM
A beginner's photo course starts out explaining what those numbers mean.  It sounds like you have a standard 35mm SLR, so one set of numbers (usually closest to the camera body itself) controls the aperture.  The numbers will range  around 16, 11, 8, 5.6, 4, 2.8, 1.4 depending on the lense.  This ring will rotate around and sort of click into place on the numbers.  It controls how open your aperture is, that is, how much light is allowed to come through the camera.  The large the number, the smaller the opening, the less the light.  I'm sure your instructor will go over this in depth, it's one of the hardest things to get used to for beginners.
The other set of numbers probably looks like foot measurements.  That is to correspond with how far away your intended subject is, in order to bring it into focus.  However, it is rare that you will ever actually measure the distance and set it on your lense - you will usually just look through the viewfinder and use the ground glass to focus with your eye.

I hope that helps.
134  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Plus-size or regular-size pattern?? on: September 21, 2006 08:24:11 PM
I want to make the Kaliah Ali kimono inspired Simplicity dress for an upcoming wedding.  However, I'm unsure if I should use the actual Ali plus sized pattern (4050), or the regular sized version (4072).
The last time I bought clothes I was wearing a size 16 at Lane Bryant.  I'm 5'2" have about a 43" bust, 38" natural waist and 42" hips.  I usually buy a pattern corresponding to my store-bought dress size but I wasn't sure if the plus-size pattern might have better shapes or something to it.  Also, I am considered petite (yeah, try finding petite plus-sized clothes, right)
In general I'm unsure of whether or not to buy plus-size patterns or regular ones.  I don't think I can wear regular store bought clothes anymore - I think I have to buy in the plussizes - so should I be using the plus-size patterns too?  Cause some of the regular ones go up to 22, you know?

Well thanks in advance!

I'm all about sewing my winter/fall wardrobe - I haven't bought new clothes in about a year!  I just need ideas, I'm into the idea of wearing more dresses and skirts, but I'm in upstate NY and it gets freezing here.  I've never really worn anything but jeans in the winter.
