1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / this sweater is hiding a secret..... on: April 07, 2006 10:00:58 PM

which is about a million lose ends!!!

I made this sweater from the book Animal Knits by Zoe Mellor.  It is a great book, I love all the patterns in it, but am not sure I when I will tackle instaria again.  The sweater is for my nephew who loves animals.  I showed it to him and he said "tiger jumping" which I took to be his sign of approval.  My sister told me if I don't get it finished before it started getting to warm that I can't give it to him until the fall.  He is a little man who likes to pick his own clothes.  So I better get working on weaving all those ends in!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Futurama swap! on: January 30, 2006 06:14:42 PM

I don't think there has been a Futurama swap yet.  Anyone interested?  I love Futurama, but don't watch any other of the adult swim cartoons.  I think it would be fun to craft!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Holiday CD swap? on: November 25, 2005 02:45:27 PM

Anyone interested in a holiday CD swap?  I love listening to holiday music!  I have never organized a swap before, but was thinking everyone could send to 2 or 3 people.  We'd probably have to start this pretty soon too.

Hope people are interested!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / fall quilt on: September 18, 2005 07:30:16 PM

Here's a picture of the quilt I made for a friends wedding this past weekend.  I finished it at 2 am the night before I felt....yah for procrastinating.  I had a hard trying deciding on colors to use so it would not be too girly or masculine.  In the end I really like how it turned out.  I is ~85x95 so big enough to fit on a queen size bed.  I machine stitch-in-ditch quilted it.  I really wanted to add more maching quilting to it, but I had a hard time getting it too look good and didn't want to ruin the quilt.  I love the flying geese pattern and started a similiar quilt for myself a year ago, but them got intimidated by the size.  Now I think I can finish my quilt. 

I added a small label to the back.....I wanted to make a nicer label, but due to my pracrastination, I just didn't have time.

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / rubber stamps on t-shirts on: September 09, 2005 05:51:14 AM

I just thought I would post this tip here, because I thought it was so great.  I was at my sister-in-laws last night, and she had made some stenciled onsies and used those tiny rubber letter stamps to put the letters on.  I haven't tried it, but she said is was really easy, and sure beats cutting out all those letters.  I am definetly going to try this soon (on scrap fabric first)  But I guess you could use any rubber stamp you have....
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding gift help! on: July 13, 2005 07:51:19 PM

My good friend is getting married in a couple of months and I have been thinking about making her a quilt as a gift (either a wall hanging or a queen size one.)  But I can't decide on a quilting pattern or colors.  So today I was watching knittygritty in the DIY network and there was a pattern for an aran afghan and my mom said to me.  "That's what you should make for Liz's wedding."  But what I'm not sure about is how big of an afghan to make (if I decide to make the afghan.)  At first I thought I'd make it big enough to fit their queen size bed....but I'm not sure if they will like it and/or use it.  Should I make 2 small couch afghans instead?  Or should I keep with the quilt idea.  I am horrible at making decisions, but really need to get started on this soon to have it finished in time for the wedding.  So I appreciate your thoughts.

To recap:  queen size quilt, wall hanging quilt, queen size knit aran afghan or 2 throw aran afghans.  What would you want as a wedding present?Huh
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / wrap skirt from a tablecloth on: March 17, 2005 03:09:57 PM
I bought this tablecloth at the thrift store to make a circle skirt with, but then yesterday I was at the store and I saw these really cute wrap skirts which had plaid waistbands and hems and the rest was patterned.  So I made this wrap skirt instead.....which ended up being way easier b/c there was no hemming.  I basically cut the tablecloth in half (it was really long ~96 inches.)  I made a 3 inch wasitband out of plaid fabric, gathered the tabkecloth fabric, attached it to the waistband and added buttons.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out, but since it is so fluffy I think it kinda makes me look fat Sad.  Let me know what you think.

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / German phase needed...... on: March 10, 2005 03:18:31 PM

I am looking for a funny German phase to stensil on a T-shirt for my 13 yr old nephew's birthday.  I don't know german, so the best I can come up with is "Wie Gehts."  He is going to Germany next month for 2 weeks as part of an exchange program with his school, so I thought that a german t-shirt would be a fun birthday present. 

Any ideas......that are appropriate for a 13 yr old boy.

Thanks for your help!
