Oh, these are just so cute!!!
I bought a Canon G10 about 6 months ago and I'm pretty happy with it. Though I'm taking a photography class right now and finding out it doesn't do *everything* (aperture range is only 2.8-8.0, can't set the shutter to always opening, etc.). But still a very good all around camera.

You should be so proud of yourself. I literally gasped when I saw what you created. It's wonderful!
So many of these are great, I might have to buy myself half a dozen if I don't win one! I love Travelgirl, Glass of Wine, Walking Backwards, I Did Not Just Say That, Identity, and When In Rome!

Wow, this photo is so adorable!! Apparently when my college roommate was little she would ONLY wear dresses. Wear do they get these preferences so early on??

Before I saw what you'd written I looked at the photo and immediately thought of the dressed my grandmother made for my sister and I for the bicentennial in 1976! Thanks for bringing back some old memories!

Oh my gosh! We had that Wolfie book when I was a kid (over 30 years ago!). Nice score!

This is so hard, since I try to put these sort of things out of my mind (and I have done so many less-than-brilliant things while sewing...). But just about two weeks ago I was trying to make a shower cap from a tutorial and while stretching the fabric to attach the elastic I actually managed to catch my finger under the machine needle. Wow. Hurt like crazy and there was a LOT of blood (none on my project, miraculously!). Turned out not to be a bad injury in the end, but I initially thought I might need some stitches! I would think after sewing for 20 years I wouldn't do things like that. At least it's the first time I've done that and not the 10th!

Oh my gosh. This REALLY reminds me of the wallpaper my sister and I had in our bedroom in the 70s.... Fun!

Thank you so much for posting the link to the Lace Heaven. I think I could cruise that site for an hour at least. So much crazy stuff there that I have never seen anywhere else (underwires for bras??). Love it!! And a tutorial for you on making underwear would really rock, but no pressure. :)

good-ness is one of my favs! I'd love some more fabric from her (to go with what I've bought in the past). :)

I love the green dish and the spotted circle bowl at objectalcove. And those prices -- awesome! I might have to pick up a bunch of Xmas gifts there!

Over at 2monkees the scrabble tile pendants are really awesome! I would have a hard time picking one of those if I had to. :)

Congratulations! Life is good! :) I could really use tips on putting in piping. While I have done this several times, I always find it REALLY painful to do (slow, tedious, frustrating, and even physically painful in truth!). I also really like the suggestion I saw on how to pick various types of interfacing. Way to go!

I was on the verge of clicking over to buy these when I read farther to see you were giving some away! Awesome! For stains I pretty much put Stain Stick on everything. I found it in college and got out just about everything and on top of that, I could apply it and then let the clothes sit for a week or two until I got around to washing them, and the stains would still come out. The only thing I can think off hand that it doesn't work that well on is ink. Well, and tea stains, but nothing takes those out!

I do mostly sewing, and my two favorite books at the moment are Denyse Schmidt Quilts (http://www.dsquilts.com/ch_book.html) and Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson (http://www.amazon.com/Last-Minute-Patchwork-Quilted-Joelle-Hoverson/d p/1584796340). They are so gorgeous to look at and the projects are great too! (Sorry -- couldn't get that link to show up completely unless I added a break in the middle of it, so you'll have to piece it back together!)
