Has anyone tried flannel backed vinyl?  I hate my ugly white rented kitchen cabinets.

I'm in the lucky group as well.  This weekend we had a prom for the grown ups and I made bling and buttonieres and corsages and ramped up dresses and lots of stuff. I got a lot of Wow, you can make ANYTHING which was a huge boost. Ive never had or wanted a purchased blanket in my life.  Ive always had quilts that my grandmother made.  I wouldnt have it any other way.  My cousins and I will still sit down and say Oh, that piece was that sun dress I had in the summer before I started high school.  I wore that thing out!

My mom just made new curtains for her bedroom.  They were pretty expensive with lining and valance and having the pleats pressed in at the dry cleaners.  They will last the rest of her life, I imagine.  I like change, so I purchased a $1.49 brass rod, some curtain ring clips, and a thick piece of $2 yard gold and blue upholstery fabric and Hobby Lobby.  My room has a warm parchment glow when it rains and that suits me fine.

I'd like to find thrift, bead, and fabric shops while I'm there. I'll be there April 20-24 and will be relying on the Metro.

I usually lose my needle after a project or two, so it doesn't really come up.  I've found that what they call embroidery needles suck on non-aida cloth projects.

Ok, tonight I'm going.  I'm free and have a paycheck!  Whoo-hoo.  I'll be in a black skirt with red cherries on it doing embroidery.  See ya.

Ok, I need some ideas for decorating those stretchy knit gloves.  JoAnn's has them for $1 a pair and I got a few.  I'm making Christmas stockings, and I thought I might put gloves in most of them.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: First swap: kitty purse on: June 11, 2008 11:13:56 AM
Yes, I did make the purse myself.  The odd shape is due to the fact that you're looking at the bottom pooching out.  It's sort of triangular shaped.  The idea is to make several of these and run the chain through the eyelets.  Handy for keeping work stuff (badge, computer glasses) in a M-F pouch, all purpose stuff in another (sunglasses, hanky, pen, cash), outside (spf, extra hanky) in another, craft, etc. We'll see if that comes to fruition.

Thanks on the eye comment. It seemed like a good place to use varigated thread

Honest, it's a little straighter (the sewing part) than it looks.  This was for a swap on another board.

From John Kelsos column in the Austin-American Fishwrapper er Statesman:
This story started for me a few weeks ago when a guy who sounded about my age called up to say that over the years, he'd been in just about every beer joint in East Austin except the Rio Rita at 1308 E. Sixth St., a few blocks east of Interstate 35.
He thought the place was too tough, so he stayed away.
Then, a few weeks ago, he finally got the cojones to walk into the Rio Rita, and what does he find? A group of people sitting around knitting.
Thursday night is crafts night at Rio Rita, which was taken over last March by new owners Randall and Donya Stockton, and transformed. It's gone from shivs to knitting needles.
On Thursday nights, you'll find knitters, crocheters, needle pointers and other crafters.
"To be fair, we probably have some of the toughest crafters in the city," Donya Stockton said.

If youre not familiar, Randall & Donya are the owners of Beerland on Red River near 7th.
