I did RSVP postcards too, and didnt run into any problems except for ol' Grandma - who was paranoid that the postcard would get lost in the mail.  She insisted on putting the card (complete with postage) inside another envelope (with postage) and mailed that to us.  Wasnt that big of a deal, I guess it was just a Grandmotherly quirk.

Sorry to hear about that.  For a while I was having all this trouble with tension (the bobbin thread being all loose and bunched up), then after fumbling around like an idiot for DAYS, I realized I had been threading the machine wrong by missing an entire point.  I'm an idiot.  Once I figured that out everything was fine. 

I'm assuming you're unlike me and know how to thread the damn thing.  Does the machine still have a limited warranty?  Or is it ancient?

LOVE the Domokun hat!  I've been wanting to make some Domo crafts, maybe I'll get started on something...

Here's a link to a pretty good tutorial...


I've never made one before, but it seems pretty easy.  Good luck!

I cast on for the Root a couple days ago and the pattern's been so interesting (my first top down raglan) that I'm almost finished - probably my most productive and efficient project ever!  I'm knitting with a very pale green recycled cotton and size 4.5 needles.  I'm just at the bust shaping with endless stockinette coming up.  Hope I finish today or tomorrow.

Sweet!  Free loot!  I watch Sewing with Nancy all the time, always makes me feel like a really crappy seamstress, but I still like it!

Ooh, I love lathe work.  The bowls are beautiful.  My husband has used a lathe before, but only for making baseball bats (such a dude).  I agree that your pop should start selling!  Or start when he retires?

We're doing ant themes in our favors [it has to do with how TheBoy asked me to marry him.]

Well, crap, now I have to know how he proposed to you!  Stuck the ring in an ant hill?

For flowers, an alternative to the mason jar idea would be to plant wheat grass in terra cotta pots.  Then you can add a couple of gerber daisies in water picks (those plastic tubes that hold just one stem; the pick version is pointy on the bottom so you can stab it into things.)  The grass will hide the picks, making it look like the daisies are growing in the pots, but it will look more 'done' than either floating daisies or potted plants.  Also, Wheat grass seeds are so cheap they're practically free if you get them in bulk from a health food store, and they're insanely easy to grow.  you could tie a red gingham ribbon on the pot (less overwhelming than gingham tablecloths), and if you wanted to get kitchy, you could glue a couple of plastic ants to the pot too.

I actually did this for my wedding (I think I originally saw it in Martha Stewart Weddings), with terra cotta pots, wheatgrass and gerbera daisies.  I had to fashion wire holders so the daisies would stand upright, I guess I didnt know about the little holder things at the time.  However, I didnt grow my own grass.  Instead, I found a local wheatgrass supplier and bought a bunch of flats for cheap.  I'm sure you could find a similar person (especially since you're in california). 

And I wouldnt worry about buying your stuff from costco.  I bought my flowers from Whole Foods and they turned out fine.  I did this after feeling cheated by florists and learning that the SF flower market requires a business license for wholesale rates.

Hope your plans are going along great, good luck.
