1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Sterling Silver Spoon Flatware Case with box on: March 19, 2009 03:34:35 PM
My friends got married and I found these great Sterling Silver Spoons monogrammed with their last name initial.  I made a case, there's a slot for each spoon, then the flap goes over and wraps in thirds, then ties with two sewn in sashes.  The box is covered with the same satin used for the flatware case and the bottom is peau de soie.  These were her wedding colors; chocolate and red. 
here it is all wrapped up

with it opened up all six spoons in their slots

then with the flap down before folding up

then begin folding it into thirds

the fabric covered box, top in satin, bottom in peau de soie

I was worried about covering a box in fabric, but it was very easy.  I did have to do the top twice though because the first time I sprayed too much adhesive. 

I love it and I hope they do too.
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Knitty's Surface by Norah Gaughan Knitalong on: January 12, 2009 09:53:11 PM
I was just poking around Knitty, and this lovely caught my eye.  I like bobbles.  It's because I like polkadots and just dots in general.  And apparently, I like Norah Gaughan, because this would be a second project of hers that I'm going to do.  I did the one that was on the cover of Vogue Knitting a few years ago.  It came out great and I like it a lot, but it was fraught with problems. 

This one is so cute.  I just love it!  Anyone else want to try it with me?  I wish I could post the picture, but here's a link. 

I'm thinking I'll do it in brown too!  And I already have the yarn!!!


3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Bernina Virtuosa 160 oil where? on: August 05, 2008 12:33:16 AM
I have a Bernina Virtuosa 160 and can't find the manual!  I don't know where it is, and I'm wondering, did I ever get one?  I don't really remember having one ever!  I vaguely remember having a little booklet about feet, but that's all.  Does anyone else have one?  Can you help me remember where to oil it? 

The place I bought it gives lifetime lessons on how to use your machine, but the next one isn't until September! 
4  COOKING / Dessert / Graham Cracker Crust CRUMBLES! on: July 13, 2007 06:46:24 AM
So, whenever I make a graham cracker crust I follow the recipe that I've found on many many online recipes but it doesn't ever get hard and crusty.  What am I doing wrong?  Not enough butter?  Not cooked long enough?  It's not the temperature, because even then it doesn't get really hard like cheesecake crusts from a bakery.  What's up?  Hep me.

Here's the recipe I've used.

2 c.  graham crackers crushed
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter (melted)

Mix them up, pack well into a tin, bake for 6-7 minutes at 350F.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / SF Giants Seed Bead Pin on: June 26, 2007 11:08:50 AM
I made this pin for my friend's birthday.  I used size 10 seed beads in orange and black, sterling silver findings and a stainless steel 1 1/2 inch safety pin.  It was my first beading project.  Way fun!

Go Giants!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Brioche Stitch Scarf! on: June 25, 2007 07:53:17 PM
Last year the San Francisco Giants had a Stitch n Pitch and they gave us some orange and black yarn.  It was crap yarn, but I used as an exercise to practice my Brioche Stitch.  Since I actually love Brioche, the bread, I thought maybe I might also like Brioche the stitch!  And I DO!  

Here's a few pictures, one of me wearing it and another is a close up of both sides of the scarf.  It was really fun to make and I have another one that I'll load up later!  It's pink and brown.

Go Giants!!!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 1100 yds angora merino, now what? on: February 25, 2007 11:38:42 PM
So I went to Stitches West and I bought 1100 yds, six skeins in total of some really beautiful Tess Yarn, 50% angora 50% merino.  It's so pretty, light blue, and I want to make something like a cardigan with no buttons and a little lacey edge to them.  Like in the Sublime pattern book, it's more like a small paper book really. 

But do you have suggestions?  And maybe a pattern?
