Wanna Personal Make-Over?

I was web wandering today and somehow came upon Elle's Make Over App.I didn't really have much hope that it would work very well - mostly because I couldn't think of how they could make it work - but it DOES work. I tried to use the photo above (which is pretty indicative of the "me you would see on the street) and it worked okay but I ended up taking a "no holds barred",no make-up, hair pulled back, cruelly frank full face photo with my computer and uploaded that. No I can;t share that one because it might frighten you as it did me ! Like the old troll lady who lives under the bridge! With this app you have the ability to change your hair - many styles and many colors, jewelry, make-up, (from lipstick, eyeliner,brows, base etc) hats, and accessories. I learned a bit from this little exercise too because I was able to tell what colors work well for me- most I knew but some were a bit of a surprise - and which don't! I don't make a good blond at all and was surprised at how well darker hair worked with my coloring. You are able to adjust to the 'amount' of make-up you're "putting on" and you have the ability to move the hairstyles to fit to your head. The technology works surprisingly well. I was pleased to see what sort of earrings look best on - that was one of the surprises for me.

There weren' t too many short hair styles available but, thanks to this app, I am finally able to set aside my desire for long hair since I realized that short hair really does look so much better on me. This is style that is close to what I have - when I take the time to  brush my unruly curls out - but it is a much darker color than I have now sport - but it's close to what my hair was like when I was younger.  I love these earrings and they are similar to something I would wear too - as is the necklace. If you have a few moments to play you might have fun with this little app. It made me feel better about being older - I guess I can still look okay. Not 25 again but okay! Well done Elle -this little app works great.

Circular Knitting Needle Comparison

When I use something a lot I have to admit that I try to find the brand that works best for me. I never thought that I would ever be a scissor snob until I found Dovo brand scissors and, of course I love my trusty Fiskars too. I became a scissor snob thank to Dovo. 
Now I seem to be searching for the perfect knitting needles - the perfect one for me at least. I have been enjoying the 'chase' and I think I am close to knowing exactly what my preference is, and want, in a knitting needles. 
I only use circular knitting needles. When I first taught myself to knit myself  that's what I used and my preference has not changed. I began knitting with Addi Turbo needles. That is the brand that my LYS sold and I have always loved how slick and fast they are. I have sets of Addi clicks interchangeables in both lace and regular.  Over time, I have discovered what I want in a knitting needle: metal, the pointiest tip possible, a fast knitting, slick, metal needle and a very flexible c…

Fabric Stiffeners and Hardeners For All Occasions Plus A Recipe For Home Made Starch Alternative

I have had to become better acquainted with various ways to harden, stiffen or prevent fraying in cloth lately. It has been an enlightening journey, and I thought that I would pass it along the lessons that I have learned about a variety of excellent products that suit any need to 'tame' fabric for a variety of reasons. 
Fray Check. Who among us has not used this ubiquitous little potion over the years? It works like a charm to 'glue' up those raw edges on some of the most beautiful fabrics I use; ensuring that I can sew the fabric without fear of endless unraveling. This product has remained a favorite since I first discovered it many years ago. The only change that I think Prym/Dritz has made to it over the years is a finer application tip.
I have re-discovered my admiration for this product as I was making a holiday gift from some beautiful cotton that was especially prone to fraying! I have also recently learned that Fray Check can be removed with rubbing alcohol.…

Aurifil's New 80wt Appliqué Thread

The changes that getting older bring can be amusing at times. When I was younger I eagerly awaited hearing about a new job or pay raises, what the weekend might bring, what art I hoped to make soon...those kind of life experience kind of things. Lately though, my 'awaiting moments' are far more simple. Thread! Yes, I have been eagerly waiting to try Aurifil's new appliqué thread...an smooth, strong, 80wt cotton. It seems that my 'making' life has been dominated by hand sewing and hand appliqué lately. Therefore, anything that tends to make my stitches look smaller and blend better is on my radar. Over the years I have used a lot of varieties of appliqué thread. Who doesn't love stitching with silk thread?! It's soft, lustrous and blends so well! My issue with sewing with most silk threads was that it tended to break a lot. I tried to love Superior Threads Bottom Line poly and Wonderfil's Invisifil poly. The problem? I really tend to be old school and …
