1  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dyeing newbie-dumb question on: September 05, 2014 08:38:32 AM
My first adventure in yarn dyeing and have just one question before making a final decision on method: has anyone tried using a tie-dye kit?

I will be dyeing a lace weight 100% alpaca, so any advise would be welcome!
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Any good rose (petal) recipes on: June 08, 2011 06:38:35 PM
  Two weeks ago I finally got brave enough to try cooking/baking with petals from my very fragrant antique roses.  The resulting pound cake was outstanding! Now I'm ready for more more adventures, but personally, I'm not very inventive.  Does anyone have a recipe to share?
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Help with a "toy" sewing machine on: February 01, 2011 12:56:36 PM
My mom got my 4 y.o. a toy sewing machine at a yard sale for $4.  The stuff inside says Montgomery Ward battery operated sewing machine.  But there are also papers labeled Necchi educational toy sewing machine and a warrenty paper from Hassenfels Bros., Inc. dated Jan. 1, 1962.

It works with the hand crank (haven't tried batteries yet) but what kind of needles would it take?  I've never delt with toy machines before.

If this is an incorrect posting type, I apologize.
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / recipe in a jar? (brownies, beans and rice, cookies...) on: November 16, 2010 04:49:41 PM
  I used to have several different recipes for gift mixes in a jar... note the words "used to". Along the way water got spilled on them and now the words are all green water colors.  If any one has good ones they'd be willing to share, I'd really appreciate it!
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Upper thread tension problem on: August 26, 2010 08:07:10 AM
I'm sure this has been discussed, but I only went back through 6 months of topics. (I have a 4 y.o. and not much time.)

This is the issue:  my Singer 201 will sew just fine for a few inches (roughly 2-4) then the tension goes on it. I think it is the upper tension, because the top side of the sewing is fine, but the bottom becomes a straight line with small loops coming down from the top. Why would it do this? Even with readjustment, it happens each time I sew. Is it terminal, or possible something I can fix myself?
