1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Steampunk Airship Pirate Flag on: April 25, 2010 06:48:51 PM
Here is a flag that hubby and I designed and I made to fly outside our house. We're great admirers of steampunk aesthetic, so we tried to imagine what kind of Jolly Roger airship pirates might fly. Here's what we came up with:

Hope you enjoy. Comments and critiques welcomed.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Please help- making a flag on: October 25, 2009 03:08:38 PM
Hello everyone,
I am a novice sewer and I want to make a flag as a gift for my husband. What I've designed is a light colored emblem on a dark field, similar to a Jolly Roger. I want to make it double-sided and appropriate for hanging outside. I'm looking for websites, books, and/or advice for proper construction techniques for the flag, and resources to buy fabric. I found UV protected weather resistant nylon at Joanns.com, but they have limited color selection. Ideally, I'd like to find a light tan fabric and a dark brown fabric. Any help you can offer would be terrific!
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / party food on: May 25, 2008 06:12:16 AM
My husband and I will be hosting a house party next weekend to celebrate our recent marriage, and I'm trying to plan a menu. I am a vegetarian, as is another guest, and we also have a vegan friend who is coming. I'm already definately serving homemade pita chips and hummus, spiced nuts, and dark chocolate covered strawberries. I need ideas for more vegan friendly snacks, and more importantly, a really good vegan dessert. My sister will be bringing a traditional chocolate wedding cake, but I want to serve another sweet that everyone can enjoy.
4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / help with homemade soy milk on: January 13, 2008 02:21:10 PM
I got a Soyabella soymilk maker for Christmas, and just made my first batch of soymilk. The machine worked great, the soymilk is tasty, but I have a problem. I usually use store bought (refridgerated-section) soymilk to use in my coffee. So I tried my homemade soymilk in coffee, and it curdled! Sigh. Has anyone had problems with curdled soymilk?
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / 30th wedding anniversary gift on: August 23, 2007 02:44:17 AM
Hello all. We will be celebrating my parents 30th wedding anniversary in October, and my sister and I are trying to come up with a meaningful gift for them. My parents are 47 and 44 and they love the outdoors. They just got back from a trip to Alaska, which was their treat to themselves for their anniversary, and they can't stop talking about how big and beautiful it is up there. They said the pictures they took just don't do it justice.
 Dad also loves to garden, and Mom volunteers for both the American Heart Association and the Red Cross as a CPR instructor.
Any thoughts?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / small -> big tshirt recon on: August 12, 2007 03:53:09 PM
I was checking out the recon tut page, and I see tuts for making a shirt smaller, but I need help to make mine bigger! I ordered two threadless tees in their largest girlie size, but their biggest isn't big enough.  Sad I love the shirts and can't wear them. I wear a size 18-20 and I'm guessing they're a 14-16. I can get in them but its a realllllly tight squeeze. Any experienced reconners out there who can point me in the right direction?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / crochet hook holder ideas on: August 02, 2007 06:01:12 AM
Hello all. Just got my very own sewing machine! I've only ever sewed on someone elses, psyched now I have one to keep. I want to make a crochet hook holder, and I'm looking for patterns/tuts. So far I found this one http://craftydaisies.com/2007/03/14/crochet-hook-case/, but was hoping the sewing peeps out there would have more ideas. Thanks!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / shrink plastic muse on: May 04, 2007 06:50:07 PM

9  COOKING / Dessert / goodies for gamers: Tetris cookies on: April 22, 2007 09:54:36 AM
My bf works for a video game store, and they have to work late tonight to reset the store. So to keep the boys happy...

Tetris cookies! They're nutmeg brown sugar cookies with royal icing.

Also made some with just chocolate edging. Yum!

I made this thimble and these pins for the Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 4, thought I'd share them here, too.
