1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Free motion? No darning foot! on: April 02, 2010 10:37:29 PM
I am making a baby sized stacked coins quilt and I want to try out free motion quilting ... the only trouble is I don't have a darning foot...Can I just use a zig zag foot with the feed dogs down?
2  CANADA / Manitoba / Economy Textiles on Notre Dame on: March 11, 2010 04:57:14 PM
Has anyone been?  I heard they have fabric at a decent price but their website doesn't really explain their selection.

I'm wondering what kind of fabrics they have and what their prices are like compared to say...fabric land.

Thanks for the help!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Stacked Coins quilt pattern? -- Yardage? on: March 02, 2010 01:17:46 PM
Hi,

I am looking for an online pattern for a stacked coins quilt.  I want to make this for a friends wedding August 2011.

I am looking for something that makes a queen sized quilt.

I would prefer an online pattern to a magazine.

I am planning a trip to the US in a week to get fabric (JoAnn's!!) so I need an idea of yardage before I go.

Thanks for the help!
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Asian Noodle (or Noodle-less) Salad! on: November 04, 2009 06:47:10 PM
I love this salad!  Love, Love, Love it!  I stumbled across it on the 'pioneer woman cooks' blog...but I made a few changes to make it a bit healthier.

If you want to check out the original version head on over here:  http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/03/my_most_favorite_salad_ever_ever_ever_ever/

SALAD INGREDIENTS:



1/2 sliced Napa cabbage
1/2 package shredded cabbage (cole slaw mix)
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small bag bean sprouts (also called “mung bean sprouts”)
3 sliced scallions
1/2 english cucumber cut in strips
1 big handful baby spinach leaves, washed
LOTS of chopped cilantro—up to one bunch


DRESSING:

Juice of 1 lime
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tsps sesame oil
8 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped
2 cloves chopped garlic
2 hot peppers or jalapenos, chopped  ( use these if I have them...if not, I use a healthy squirt of sriracha hot sauce)
More chopped cilantro—LOTS...about 1/4 cup

Mix together salad ingredients. Whisk together dressing ingredients and pour over salad. Mix with tongs or hands and serve on platter.
*Dressing keeps up to three days before serving, WITHOUT cilantro.


**The above recipe has been modified from the original on the pioneer women's website.  I leave out the noodles (hence the decreased amount of dressing)...I am doing this because I am doing weight watchers and this means less points. 

I will also add cooked shrimp, crab flavoured pollack, and or pounded and grilled chicken to this for dinner.  If I am doing the chicken...I pound a chicken breast flatt....and I make and extra bit dressing to marinade the chicken before grilling.  Grill 4 mins per side, slice and serve over salad!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Ornament Swap? on: August 12, 2009 09:44:17 PM
I know....it's early....

Maybe 3 or 4 matching ornaments?  In your partners Christmas colours?

A good swap for people that maybe use non-traditional Christmas colours... (I use chocolate brown and silver).
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a post....tank top under a skirt? on: July 25, 2009 05:37:45 PM
There was a post on here...SOMEWHERE... I can't for the life of me find it now...

It was a dress someone made from an existing white racerback tank top and a high-waisted skirt.  There was a tutorial for the skirt I believe....

I want to try making one but can't find the post anywhere.....anyone?

My boyfriend bought me a new camera for my birthday and I've been itching to try some shots.  My condo doesn't make for very interesting media...so I stepped outside to the garden.
























9  COOKING / Dessert / Worlds Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake on: May 28, 2009 06:34:58 PM

2tbsp chocolate chips

Stir to combine in a large coffee mug.

Add...

One Egg
3tbsp milk

VOILA!!!!  Cake!





Enough for two!  Or just for you!
10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Dry, Acne Prone Skin? Home Remedy? on: May 27, 2009 10:03:12 PM
I know, it's an oxymoron right?  Nope.

I actually have dry, acne prone skin.....and I'm almost 30.  I'm not talking about whiteheads or black heads either.  I get really painful bumps under the skin that take a long time coming to a head (sorry, I know this is gross).  It's not cystic acne though.

I only get them on my chin  Sad

I've only had them since getting a depo provera shot 3-4 years ago.

I have seen my doctor.  He prescribed a benzoil peroxide cream which I think I'm immune to by now...I mean, come on...who with acne, hasn't already tried that...besides, on my already dry skin it's a nightmare.  Salycidic acid doesn't work for me either...

Any suggestions?
