1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / help with spool of wire? on: February 17, 2007 09:39:01 AM
I know you beaders must have come up with solution for this:
I bought my first spool 28 gauge 40 yards. I am crocheting with it. But upon opening it this is what happens: It starts unwinding itself and gets all tangled up and just keeps going like a slinky, I put tape at first, then tryed this and that..finally wrapped the whole thing around a piece of cardboard so I could work with it they way I need to. Was wondering if you all came up with better way to control the spool.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Orange Pomander on: November 20, 2005 10:37:55 AM
Yesterday my daughter showed me web sites to make these orange pomander and thought I'd pass it on as I did it last night. We bought the cloves at cost plus they were 99 cents a bag there, cloves can be very expensive in grocery stores. I used 3 bags cloves and 6 small oranges cost about a buck so the spices already had in cupboard. So its like a 4 dollar project. My daughter recomened using a bandaide to cushion your fingers as after awhile those cloves get kinda pokie. There is more advice on these three websites and here pictures my first try at this:

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / LapAgan on: October 14, 2005 06:39:22 PM
This was intended for sister last year for Xmas but did not get finished. So I did just finish it and intend to send soon. Also just got a camera. So here goes
The moffit pattern is here:
http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/08coasters/spiralcenter.shtml
I used a F hook and Red Heart Royal Blue the moffit here is closest to the true color. There are 30 moffits.
I intended for it to be in the shape of a hexagon when it was put together. For whatever reason it became quite the task to put it together and finally ended up with this shape. Also on finish rounds I kinda added one to many stitches at the turning corners so it got a little foofy around the edges but I think it looks like a snowfalke now.
Here are the photos

Squares for Survivors is a site that is collecting up 6" crochet or knitted squares and they will be made into afagans for the people who lost everything due to Katrina. There is more information at the link below to the site. I started making granny squares and they give lots of sites for patterns too.

7  COOKING / Dessert / Fudge! help on: November 23, 2004 06:27:56 AM
I made fudge yesterday and it won't harden. I put it in the frezer and it won't freeze.
I think I did not let the can milk and sugar desove enough. Right now its sittlng in the freezer and its thick but not enough to cut into any peices and hold together.
Any one know anything I can do to save it ? Or is it history.

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Rock People on: June 09, 2004 07:40:06 PM
Wanted to share the Rock People project with you all in case you wanta try one.
I bought the rocks at walmart as well as the glue I had a whole shoe box full of different kinds of glue before I ended up using this one called future glue for the arms as it glued them instantly together and I would make the arms first and set them aside. To make the bodies I stated with the feet and worked my way up using 1 minute apoxie glue. Once I chose the rock I wanted to use I would mix and then set and hold the rock inplace untill apoxie was set and went on the next and so forth.  I gave them as Christmas gifts but all of them ended up with a broken arm so maybe should have used apoxie for all. The thing is you need a fast dry glue that will let you create and will glue rocks together. There maybe a better glue out there but I never found it. I used little googley eyes from walmart. They really are cute in person here some photos.
I also made Dominoe People with the apoxie but sorry I do not have photo of them
I used googley eyes on them as well.
