Wolverine 2 Delayed

Due to a new director, new script and now due to bad weather while filming. So it's not coming out until 2013.
I hope we don't see as many non-comic book twisted  facts like the first movie(you know -Sabertooth his brother-NOT and the White Queen as SilverFox's sister-Uh, no and worst yet-that Logan volunteered to have the metal put in him-What? and there's too many more.)
Please leave it as the comics was written.

Patchwork Tiered Skirt

I am working on a special order patchwork tiered skirt for a customer. I thought I give you a glimpse on the making of these skirts. Sometimes it is easy to piece colors together and other times it isn't. I had started the top tier of this skirt and ended up scraping it. I didn't like how it came out and made another one. I'll show you the process here.
 Gathering of colored fabric for the skirt. Green/Black/Yellow/White for this one.
 Here's the pain ass part of ironing fabric.
 This is the second tier for the skirt. At first the blocks were going to be bigger but I decided smaller was the way to go. The middle part is green lurex.
 This is the first tier. I added green brocade to the bottom.
 This is the two tiers sewed together. Two more tiers to go.
Here is the process going for the third and fourth tier including my scribbles on a piece of paper on designing the skirt. I will post pictures of it when it is done.

Remembering 9/11

Using Glass Jars for Sewing/Craft Notions

I love glass and thought you would enjoy seeing them used in a sewing/craft room setting.

From Hello , My Name is Heather

Using Baby Food Jars

From a Nest Full of Eggs
I use them for my notions too. Much prettier than plastic and more elegant looking too.

From Simple Effects there's quite a few photos of glass containers.
From Baytec Containers blog-a few photos of uses for glass jars
