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.…

Thread Matters and Easter Joy

My enchantmnt with embroidery continues unabated. Who knew?! I recently finished this 14" square; my interpretation of a pattern from Kathy Schmitz' book "Stitches From The Garden". She has another new book coming out soon called "Stitches For The Yuletide". I like her books because the designs can so easily be made your own. I have been working on some original designs (my own) lately and am looking forward to trying one of them soon. For quite a few years now I have been a fan of Wonderfil threads. My delight began innocently enough when I tried their luscious cotton thread called Konfetti. It's a 50 wt and is comparable to Superior Threads Masterpiece 50 wt cotton and Aurifil 50wt cotton, Konfetti has a lustrous, silky feel. For the record, I am also a fan of Masterpiece and Aurifil threads, but Wonderfil has developed some really unique thread lines and I cannot help jumping on their fan-wagon. I think that they have a unique line up of threads w…
