1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / I feel like an idiot stenciling question on: November 15, 2007 06:12:56 PM
Okay, I have read every tutorial about freezer paper stenciling and I am still stuck sort of. I get that you iron the freezer paper to the fabric the shape of the image. But do you then still keep the stencil around it. Or do you just iron on a slab of freezer paper and then lay the stencil over the fabric. I'm not sure why I can't figure this out, so I'm asking for help. Huh
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / New Sewing Machine Question on: November 15, 2007 05:30:33 PM
I just got a new sewing machine today, a Viking 775. It's an awesome machine but I forgot to try winding a bobbin in front of the sales woman and I can't remember from when she did it does anyone know how? Huh
3  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / My first dyeing on: June 23, 2007 10:04:25 AM
I got a skein of this hand spun alpaca at the Estes Park Wool market.  It's for a sweater for my son.  I couldn't find colors that I liked so I decided to try my hand at dyeing.  I started with Koolaid (eight packets for 1 gal of water) but it was too light so I redyed it with food coloring which came out darker.  I am really happy with how vibrant it came out.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paperback Wallet on: February 09, 2007 06:01:39 PM
I hate fat wallets.  But it seems that unless you want something in leather and boring wallets are made to be put in purses.  I'm a pocket kind of girl and I've endured years of mens wallets.  Then the other day I was reading a book and the pages kept falling out.  It was a 60's copy of the book and had a great illustration.  I decided to try making an ultra thin wallet out of it.  The next day I was in a bookstore and everyone loved it and the suggest I make more to sell there.  Right now I'm using contact paper but I think the next ones I make out of something tougher, any ideas?  I also think I'll add one card pocket, but not too much since I want them to stay thin.



5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Matchbox book on: January 30, 2007 06:46:45 PM
This is my first completed project that I am posting.  I started with a cut out from some cover paper of the girl and the book just followed.  It's done in collage and water colors.



Thanks for peeking!
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Coffee Cans Sort of on: January 26, 2007 03:04:38 PM
We are going through 1 large coffee can like can of baby formula a week.  The amount of money with the amount of money the stuff costs I figure I should find some sort of useful, fun use for them.  I've thought about lanterns but I was wondering if anyone had other ideas.

7  COOKING / Dessert / Pudding Is Better for You than Ice Cream, Chocolate Pudding on: January 23, 2007 05:17:43 PM
Who would have thought that rich heavy pudding the sort you eat nibble at a time then giant spoon fulls is better for you than Ice Cream, it is.

This makes four serving
Ingredients:

1 cup evaporated cane juice [2/3 cup regular sugar, I think]
2 TBS Cornstarch
4 oz unsweetened chocolate (GET the GOOD STUFF) roughly cut up
1 1/3 cups Whole Milk
1 large Egg Yolk
a pinch of salt
1 TBS unsalted butter
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract (try to avoid imitation)

Directions:
Note: the egg will get chunky in this recipe if you don't constantly whisk it, it sounds like a lot of work but it's only about 5 min.

1.Whisk together the milk and egg yolk until sort of fluffy on top.
2.In a heavy sauce pan over medium heat mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt
3.When the mixture is warm to touch but not sticking to the bottom of the pan add the chocolate
4.Whisk until the chocolate is melted. 
5.Add the egg mixture in four parts whisking all the while. 
6.Raise heat to med/high and continue whisking until it is boiling and then continue for about a min.
7. Remove from stove and add butter and vanilla mix until smooth.
8. Put in ramekins or wine glasses and cover with plastic wrap.
9. Put in fridge for an hour.
10. Enjoy knowing that it's better for you than ice cream!!!!
