i love these when i have a sore throat
obviously though you could mix it up a bit for picky kids, but those are really soothing
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / can my machine handle quilting? on: January 09, 2012 07:32:49 AM
my Mam and I have been wanting to try Quilting for a while and have decided that this year we WILL do it, by hand if necessary.  The box my sewing machine came in says it can be used for quilting but browsing the web some places say it won't be able to handle it or that it will only be able to handle it with a walking foot. So I figured I'd ask here because Craftster has the answers!
It's a Janome Sew Mini ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Janome-Mini-Lightweight-Sewing-Machine/dp/B001NMQ3QY ) and I've had a good look around but I don't think there's a walking foot compatible with it, or at least not from Janome.
So, the question is, can my little machine quilt? Or should we invest in something a bit bigger? Or should we just suck it up and hand quilt?
Thank you in advance  Cheesy
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The things no one tells you before you become a knitter. on: January 07, 2012 03:04:49 AM
no one tells you how your face will light up when someone compliments a piece of your work (i figure this applies to knitting, crochet, sewing or any other type of crafting too) giving away the fact that you made it
nor will anyone tell you how good it feels when someone asks where you bought an item and you can say "oh this? i made it." knowing that your's is to only one that's just like it and that it looks good enough to be from a shop

they're great for individual pies (put your yummy filling in and slap some pastry over the top) or lasagne? potato gratan?

i hear ya smittenheart, thankfully i don't have any allergies to the ones i like the smell of, or if i do i haven't used that particular oil yet
but i have had people lecture me on how all synthetics are bad, some are, some aren't, just gotta learn the difference, but apparently that's too much like hard work for some people
16  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Anyone in the UK on: January 02, 2012 05:12:50 AM
as the others have said, charity shops and car boot sales, and keep going back, i know the charity shops in my area have a fairly rapid turn over of stock so we tend to go on a weekly charity shop trawl
Freecylce is amazing! my parents have gotten stuff from freecycle and given stuff away on it too
in our town we have a recyling centre/tip, you can't take stuff out of the skips (unfortunately, we've seen some fantastic stuff that others have thrown out but we can't take Sad) but you can get compost quite cheap and white goods and furniture and stuff that's a little loved but still good
ooooh and skips! keep your eyes open when you're out and about, often people throw out really useful stuff when they're doing diy, so if you see something you like or you think you can use just go and ask (it's good manners if nothing else) if you can take it
we've had some good stuff from skips, and had people ask if they could take from ours when we were having work done

Thankyou for the lovely comments and i must say i think i've only ever used one FO and found that it didn't blend as nicely into my mix as EOs do, but i always research very carefully what i'm putting in my things as i only make for me and my family to use and i have very sensitive skin

19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: I choose you, Bulbasaur! on: November 25, 2011 12:50:14 AM
that is just so much awesome! i've been tempted to try a pixel blanket though due to a common joke in our gaming group i must suggest/say

i'd say papier mache is probably the best bet, just using glue or whatever is unlikely to be strong enough
or plaster bandages would work, either one can be smoothed to a nice finish so long as you work with it while it's still wet
