1. Better Homes & Gardens last year did a feature on patchwork. They took a bunch of ceramic tile and just placed them on a coffee table in a large group, as trivets/ornament/plant coasters. Put felt sticky tabs on the back to prevent scratching tabletops. i couldn't find the article on their site which would have a pic to show you, but this article is interesting. Search 'tiles' on their site and you'll get all sorts of stuff - picture frames, stepping stones, coasters.


2. Mail some to me. (I'm kidding.)

How do you hollow out a lightbulb? I want to make this. But I'm fiddling around with this bulb, and nothing's coming off.

 Grin Love everyone's envelopes! I used to do that, although mine were hurried and never lined. I don't write enough to do it anymore tho. Otherwise I'd be chopping up old Rolling Stones.

what I really like to do is find the sort of square envelope - invitations frequently have them - so you can get a whole envelope on one page.

oooh, that's cute! Might try that. I imagine, though, that you wouldn't want to drop your keys at the bottom... might get a big clunky.

Featherweight boning? the sort of stuff used for corsets? Strong and flexible, but it might not work if you want joints. or certain curves.

fascinating idea, would love to see pics when you pull it off. good luck!

Well, a lot of the time, especially when making your own pattern, you make a mock up. This could be your mock up and you could make the real one out of different fabric.

Yeah, that was my first thought... take it apart and use it to make another one. anyway part of my reason for starting with this fabric was it didn't cost a bundle, and I could do that, if I needed to. But - pajamas! that's an idea. I may just use both suggestions. Pattern first, pjs after. thanks!!

This ought to go under a 'stitch and botch' type thread but I can't find one so I assume it should go here.

This is my first attempt to make a pattern. I was aware of the cheese-problems with making a smock, but since it was so easy, I attempted it. I used this cute cherry fabric I found at a thrift store.

Unfortunately I think I have created a passable pattern in the wrong fabric. My husband and I think it's a really nice top for someone half my age.

The punch line? I really like it! But I'm afraid to wear it, so I haven't finished it yet. What to do? Help/suggestions/comments?

Sorry for the blurry pics.

that is really lovely.
I loved the vegetable soup thing. it's always the little details, those memories of people, that make you tear up.
