2133  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: rabbit + unplugged foot petal cord = bad on: February 29, 2008 10:58:29 AM
electrical repairs:
1. make sure the extension you are splicing has the same fuse ampage (13A, 5A etc) as the sewing machine cable
2. make sure you do each wire individually, that way there's less chance of a short.
2a. take the exposed end of the wire from the machine, and wrap around the exposed end of the wire from the extension.
3. get a soldering gun. borrow one; it's worth it for a good repair. not essential, but I would recommend it to be safe. remember the rule when soldering is to heat the item you wish to solder, then apply the soldering wire; NOT to heat the soldering wire and rub over the join- the first way leaves a good air free join, the second way gives a bad join that will dry out in a year or so leaving you having to do it again. (computer and car maintenance skills come in handy for so many uses lol!)
4. make sure once you've joined, soldered and taped each wire individually that you check it all over VERY CAREFULLY.
5. if you take your time and make sure it's got a fused plug of the same ampage, there shouldn't be a problem. honestly.

oh, wait a min.... do US plugs have fuses in them?!

how easy are their patterns to copy? I know I have to trace them off the central sheet but it's looking REALLY daunting. I have tracing paper (well, no. I have un-coated baking paper; same thing really)
Is it as hard as it looks?

2136  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: does anyone know how to age denim? on: February 29, 2008 10:18:34 AM
all I know is how to age hems (I'm 4ft 8, i take trousers up a lot) and that's to use sandpaper. not sure it'd work on the whole material though.

you could try sticking it in a bucket of diluted vinegar and stamping on it. A LOT.
2137  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Sugar paste!?!?! Argh!!!! on: February 28, 2008 11:15:34 AM
royal icing is a p***er to get flat, it's a p***er to make even from a box mix, and it takes 3-4 days to ice a cake that way.
marzipan- allow to dry 24hours
1st layer royal icing, 12 hours. 2nd layer royal icing 12 hours, 3rd layer royal icing, 12 hours- 4th layer if you're trying to get a really smooth effect, 12 hours.....

lots of work, but I will admit it tastes a damned site better than packed sugar paste.

wow! I wish I'd had the nerve to wear something like that when I was at school.... mind you, I went to a very strict school full of closed-minded faux-snob buttheads.

I love your earrings. You have inspired me.

they rock, but personally I'd use some form of spray on varnis just to finish them- that's just 'cos of where I live, the weather here is really wet and mud would ruin their coolness.
