11  CANADA / Ontario / Yarn stores in Kingston? on: February 15, 2006 05:49:20 PM
I'm going to visit family down in Kingston this weekend. Can anyone recommend any lys's?
12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Exchange a book swap 2? on: December 22, 2005 04:22:52 PM
I loved the first round of this! The idea is to send a book you really enjoy and would like to pass on. It can be used, just so long as it's in decent condition. You also send a book or reading-related craft, like a book bag or bookmarks. Any takers?
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My record bowls on: November 25, 2005 09:15:09 PM
Finally I have ventured back to these after a . . . let's say unfortunate incident in my youth where I left the record in the oven for several minutes, and then tried to fix it by running it under cold water. Yeah . . . not so bright. But now I was making a ton of record album journals and decided to hop back in the saddle. And it worked so great!

This is a tiny children's record. It came with an ABC book. It is Disney; I have no powers against it.

This was my first one. I'm not so hot about the shaping but it'll do.

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A googleplex of FOs for a craftsale on: November 25, 2005 09:05:06 PM
Normally I'm not one for novelty garter-stitch scarves, but I've found from experience people seem to prefer these at craftsales (sigh). Hey, the yarn was in my stash anyway.

I call this one the 'Moulin Rouge' scarf:

See the cat ears!

And this is the 'Shoulder Angel':

Not to mention the knitting needles I made. They're just dowels sanded and waxed with wax paper with Sculpey ends hot-glued on.
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Record album cover journals ahoy! (img heavy) on: November 25, 2005 08:58:07 PM
I learned how to do the coptic stitch for this project, and I feel rather proud of myself.  Grin

I just folded standard 8.5" x 11" printer paper in half, and used four magazines of four sheets for each journal. I cut the record covers to 9" x 12", then in half again so I had two pieces, each 6" x 9". I poked 5 holes in which to do the stitching, just with a larger-than-average but not tapestry needle. For the threading I used Berocco Suede yarn, just because I had it lying around.

I don't have an img of the front of this one alone because I think it looks dorky unless you see the whole thing:

This one probably has the worst cutting. The top's rather uneven (some of the other ones look uneven in the photos, but it's more the angle they're at):

2001 soundtrack. Oh yeah.

I was able to get two journals out of the 2001 soundtrack. This one is my favourite:

By the way, I officially LOVE my thrift store. They have the best selection (though I still curse leaving behind the Sound of Music soundtrack just because it was graffitti'd).
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Brooches from thrift store earrings on: November 25, 2005 08:45:31 PM

It's really easy. Just snip off the post and hot glue a pin on the back!
17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Three t-shirts and an apron on: November 25, 2005 08:43:34 PM
I made these for a craftsale I have coming up soon (tomorrow . . . gulp). I used Gartner Studios paper, which I really like.

In case you can't see what it says beneath the photo, it says 'All you need is love.' in the Yellow Submarine font from dafont.com.

And my favourite...

No soup for you!
18  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / John Hughes swap? on: November 17, 2005 09:36:44 AM
Sixeen Candles. The Breakfast Club. Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Pretty in Pink. Planes, Trains & Automobiles.

What's not to love?!?!?

To see the full list: http://imdb.com/name/nm0000455/

I'd be willing to organize (after Christmas, though).
19  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Hat / glove / scarf set swap? on: November 15, 2005 05:49:00 AM
I know there's a ton of knitters and crocheters here. I loved the Scarf Swap I was in. Who's up for a swap where you knit and/or crochet a set (matching or not) of a hat, gloves or mittens, and a scarf? I'd be willing to organize.
20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / British Royal Navy swap? on: October 27, 2005 01:17:51 PM
C'mon, it's Horatio Hornblower! There's got to be some fans here, especially after all the big roles Ioan's been getting lately. I'd even be willing to organize for the first time ever, so long as it was a small number of swappers. And with eight movies and around ten books (I'm not exactly sure), you'd have no shortage of inspiration.
