That is exactly what I want! Have you ever tried fresh pumpkin?

I've never been a big fan of kasha, but those do look really good. Maybe I will have to give it another shot...
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Victorian Crazy Quilts on: June 26, 2012 03:18:07 PM
Thanks for the comments ladies, but, um, foundation??
Like I said I know nothing about quilting and when I started this the other day I just started sewing pieces together and planned to embroider those directly to my backing.

Can I do that?
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Victorian Crazy Quilts on: June 21, 2012 09:31:20 AM
Has anyone ever made a crazy quilt? I am really interested in them and since I have a ton of scraps figured that would be a good first quilt project.

I realize this is quite a quilt to start with, but I'm going to take it slowly and might skip (or machine stitch) some of the embroidery.

Any tips, advice, or thoughts would be welcomed as I embark on this adventure.

Great idea to use old t-shirts in a different and more interesting pattern. Keep up the good work quilting!
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Treadle skipping stitches on: June 21, 2012 09:08:33 AM
That's what I was thinking too. Can I realign it myself?
I am getting close to bringing it into a shop, but I would rather do it myself. Especially because the professionals are expensive and I'm afraid they would mess something up because they don't usually work on treadle machines.
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Treadle skipping stitches on: June 15, 2012 04:59:49 AM
I sew with a 1926 Singer treadle, and it usually does a beautiful stitch. However, recently it started skipping stitches about every inch or less. It started after I was working with some heavy material, during which I adjusted the foot pressure (which I usually don't mess with) and did have a needle hit the metal plate and dull the tip.

I have tried a few different needles (different sizes, all looked pretty sharp), cleaned the bobbin case well, oiled the machine, and everything is threaded right.

Is there something I am overlooking?? I just wanna sew again!

I've done the chickpea kinda thing before, it's good and super easy.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Kombucha - My fizzy refreshing, soda pop alternative on: June 14, 2012 11:11:52 AM
How do you make it/keep it fizzy?
 
I made my own kombucha awhile back, but remember it wasn't too bubbly when I put it into bottles.
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Going Retail on: May 29, 2012 04:50:36 PM
Can anyone give me advice on how I should go about taking my items to a brick and mortar store? I have never done this but am interested in selling most of my work through some local store instead of just online.

Specifically I'm not sure who to ask or how to approach them. Also, I would like to hear what kind of personal experience you have had working with retail stores.
