Handicrafts are dwindling, they say. People don't make things anymore, they say. They complain an awful lot. This week, we want to see your designs inspired by cross-stitching, sewing, embroidery, crocheting, etc.

  • It can fit the theme in style or subject.
  • No crème tees.

This is going to be interesting. People are going to have to be really creative to keep it from looking like something my grandma would wear. Good luck with this derby.

the issue is saying "miss," "mrs" or "ms" doesn't have anywhere near the same effect as spitting out "mister" with a sneer.

If they Suck then why is Etsy doing so well? You'd be surprised how much you could make turning your art into handicrafts.

If you watch Sherlock with the subtitles on, sarcasm is indicated by an exclamation point inside brackets[!] (That was used as an example, not to be actually sarcastic. I'm dead serious.)

Reproducing some of the textures on a T would be hard, but wow- what a show that was. My Electric Quilt designs wouldn't even get me in the door.
