I made up the 2 sarongs into skirts and love them. One is a blue batik with
white border and sea creatures on all over. The other is black with pink
turtles outlines in gold and a gold border.They are soft and comfortable.
Perfect for a summer evening. I'm wearing the blue one tonight to a party.
What more could I ask for ? 2 pretty skirts cost $20.00 and just a few
minutes work. They took all of 1/2 hour cutting,sewing pressing time for
each.

Ooooooh!!!!  Sounds lovely!!!  Put some pictures up on the yahoo group if
you get time.

I love easy peasy projects that look like they took twice the time and
effort.  :)

Good deal! Where did you get the sarongs for so cheap? Did you get them
somewhere on the Cape? They sound lovely.

I'l answer 2 posts in one. I 'll post pictues as soon as I get some more
film. Been on the go a lot lately and realized I'm out of film. Actually the
film is the easy part. I need to find time to get up to Walmart and get them
developed.
I bought the sarongs at Yak Arts In Orleans on the Cape. They also have a
store in Wellfleet but the Orleans store has a better selection. They import
them as wall hangings and sell them as sarongs.

Time for a digital camera! Although, I keep meaning to take pictures of the
things I've made for DD and somehow never get around to it, even with a
digital camera. :) I do still like flim, but digital is so convienent,
especially now that you can go to any CVS and develop nice pictures instead
of wasting printer ink at home. I read about this new film developing
technique though that is supposed to make pictures is 10 minutes. It's in
some kind of beta testing now (here's the url:
http://www.asf.com/events/CVS.shtml ). I like the fact that, like digital,
you can zoom and crop before printing and choose only the ones you want to
print. Plus, you do it yourself (no nosy clerks checking out your pics
before packaging them!).

Send me your skirts!  I will photograph them for you!  I promise to slim
down enough to wear them with pride!

I don't think slimming down would be necessary. Bulking up might be and
knowig how hard you've had to work with WW  I doubt you would want to do
that.
