1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / The 124'' Waistband caper. on: March 23, 2006 10:53:02 PM
so i was making http://home.earthlink.net/~lilinah/Rashid/salwar.gif those pants...

these are supposed to be small at the ankle and wide at the hips (unlike modern salvar, the ones i'm working on are 16th c. ottoman.), with a  drawstring.

however, instead of quartering my wasit measurement (plus some cause of the gathered waistband) like a sane person, i halved it instead.

thus i ended up with a pair of pants with 124'' to be gathered. yeah, not gunna work, so i have to take out all my sewing and move the center front seam in and then reslope the leg part. fun.

thats what i get for trying to think in 85 degree weather when i'm not used to it again yet.
2  COOKING / Dessert / Scones and Buttermilk substitution. on: March 03, 2006 02:49:16 PM
i looked it up, and apparently curded (lemon juice + milk) milk can be a substitution for buttermilk.

i've got scones in the oven right now, so heres hopeing this works. if it taste alright, i might do a permanent subs. in a recipie i have, since i don't really buy buttermilk very often.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Circle skirts? on: February 11, 2006 10:04:01 PM
Any ideas on how to make a circle skirt with regular 45'' wide fabric that doesn't end up being 12'' long, due to a large waist?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hair-dying apron quotes? on: February 11, 2006 09:08:48 PM
So, since i'm apparently the local non-pro hair-dye expert, i figured i'd make myself an apron to use when i do other peoples hair.

i'm looking for smartass quotes to stick on the front of the thing, which i will probably put on in bleach pen (cause that'd work with the theme)

any ideas?

7  California / California: South / Tustin Jo-ann store closing sale *CLOSED* on: September 03, 2005 12:27:25 PM
The Tustin Jo-ann store is closing on september 24th, so hurry over for good deals.

Directions: 502 E. 1st st. tustin, ca 92780. off of newport and bryan or newport and 1st st. 5 south exit on redhill, turn left till you hit bryan and turn left. stay in the right lane and it is in the shopping center that bryan dead ends into. 5 north exit on newport, turn right take down to bryan and then turn into larwin square.

Jo-anns is near Kragen auto parts. big red "WE'RE MOVING" sign is hard to miss.

Current deals:
30-50% off all items, most 40%. 30% off notions, 30% off storage boxes, 40% off seasonal.

all patterns $1.99, at least, whats left of them.

Fabric: 40% off most apparel fabric. minimun cuts of 2 yards. bolts leaving less than 2 yard remnants will not be cut (you have to buy it all if the bolt has less than 4 yards on it). if you take the whole bolt of fabric, you get an extra 10% off. whole yard cuts only, no halves, quarters, etc.

50% off ribbons, trims, elastics, velcros, belting, strapping, etc. same deal as above. minimun 5 yard cuts on all but trims, which is 2 yard min.

home dec fabrics, minimun 5 yard cuts. same deal as above. 40% off.

50% off linings, and special occaision, bridal fabrics and the like. also 50% off faux fur, and sheer fabric.

Jo-ann ad's and coupons are not accepted, niether are checks.

jo-ann emplyee discounts still apply from other stores. tell the cutting table person, or the register person that you are an empolyee or dependant, and show your scanner card, or jo-ann employee id card, and you still get an extra 15%.

i may have left out some stuff, but i'm pretty sure thats most of it. this is what i can remember anyway.
