sonp 2013!

aka the summer of no pants!  hosted by marigold of hideous! dreadful! stinky!  it *ahem* apparently happened last year, but i missed it.  basically its a dress and skirt sew fest starting in may and lasting all summer!  pics and links and blogs and google+ [which i'm still trying to freaking figure out..] and then you eschew pants [which i generally do] and wear and post all the lovely things youve made during may!

some ideas that ive pinned and will attempt this starting ... oh gawd.  next week.

*edit.  i rechecked the date for SONP.  end of may.  thank god.*

we'll see.  skirts and i def have a better history of fit and finish... but i really do need to figure out this whole muslin technique that may actually result in something correctly fitting my shoulders.

how to build a raised garden bed

step one:  do some math.  gahh.  i know.  after pricing lumber on home depot's website, i discovered shorter boards are cheaper.  which sort of makes sense.  after my last painful and drawn out raised-bed-building adventure, i decided 4'x4' lumber beds were much easier than 8'x4' stacked landscaping ties.  plus i have the space, the hauling vehicle [my mom's] and i hadnt yet made a good buddy in the home depot lumber department.
but i sketched out some ideas and questions - should i try and do corner stakes and screw each side into it?  do i stagger the screws?  can i use corner brackets?  how many do i need - 1 or 2 per corner?  what strength?  what kind of screws?  what size?  do i need nuts too?  do the brackets go on the inside or the outside?  why are they so friggin expensive?
