1  UNITED STATES / Kentucky / Richmond KY anyone? on: August 09, 2005 12:34:05 PM
As an eku student who will be in Richmond for at least two more years, I am curious to see how many other Richmond KY people are floating around.

We're sandwiched between Lexington (a big-ish community) and Berea (a very crafty place) and close to both.  But I know we've got to have our own great craftsters, and I wonder what sort of treasures are hidden in Richmond. 

So any other Richmond KY people want to poke their heads out, and do they know of any Richmond treasures they'd like to share (pretty places, yummy places, crafty places, etc)?

2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Really silly question about sticks of butter on: July 15, 2005 09:16:17 PM
I was always taught that 1 stick of butter = 1 cup of butter....

Someone recently argued with me on this after doing some math conversion in there head.  Saying that 2 sticks of butter = 1 cup.  THEN I was reading on a website (The Joy of Baking), and it said the same.

So....
1 cup = 1 stick
or
1 cup = 2 sticks HuhHuhHuhHuh??

I'm so confused!

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Minced Garlic Cloves...measurement conversions? on: July 12, 2005 01:05:44 PM
I have a recipie that calls for 3 garlic cloves minced.  I don't feel like mincing garlic cloves tonight.  So....

I was just going to buy a jar of already minced garlic but I can't find the conversions online to know how much of it to use.

Does anyone know how I would measure that out?

Thanks for your help!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / question about the patterns. on: July 09, 2005 07:48:22 AM
I just got the stitch-it kit and I have a few basic questions.

1) With the iron transfers, did I read correctly that they will not wash out?  What type of transfer methods will wash out?

2) The lines on the patterns seem a bit thick, to cover the line do you need to use the whole piece of floss? 

Thanks for your help guys!  I"m excited about my new kit, going to start practicing my stitches today. Smiley

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidery - Patterns ideas for whimsical/comical towels on: July 05, 2005 10:30:10 AM
I'm starting to learn embroidery and my mom asked that once I get going if I'd make her some hand towels and tea towels.  I asked her what sort of designs she would like and she requested things that are whimsical/comical.  Because I'll still be a relative beginner I'd prefer things that are fairly simple.

I've been searching around online and have found some things, but I thought I'd ask incase anyone had a really good idea. Smiley

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / crewl vrs embroidery... what is the difference? on: June 30, 2005 11:21:36 AM
I was mentioning to my mom that I was planning on learning embroidery and she mentioned that she loved both embroidery and crewl.  I've seen the word crewl in a few places and was wondering...

Can someone explain the difference between the two?  Because I've seen crewl before, I had a picture in my room when I was little that was done using crewl, but I always thought it was just embroidery.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Father's Day / Fathers day AND birthday Need help with ideas. on: June 15, 2005 10:34:57 AM
I was just informed that for fathers day, we are going hiking.  So I was thinking maybe I could throw together a little hiking survival kit.

He'll have some stuff, because he is diabetic and must always have stuff with him.  But I'm sure a little extra couldn't hurt.

I was thinking water and energy bars.  If I could find them a really good pair of socks (small town).  Maybe I could find one of those amusing survival books for wilderness? 

Does anyone else have any ideas to add to the survival kit?  His birthday is also coming right up a few days after fathers day and I was wanting to get him something small or make him something small.

He is a big geek.  Loves computers and geeky jokes.  He likes to watch TV and play his x box.  I thought about making a holder for the controllers but mom would never let him use it. lol  And he doesn't drink so a beer cozie wouldn't work.  Any ideas?
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Iron on, white background? on: July 29, 2004 12:57:43 PM
This might be a silly question, but I need to know!

I've been planing on making a messenger bag and putting some iron on transfers on to it.  One of the images I want to use, is black on white.  So I would NEED the transfer paper to be white.  Is this how transfer paper is normaly? Or is it transparent?  Or does there tend to be both and I just need to watch what type I buy?

Thanks
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Question about Melt and Pour Soap on: July 12, 2004 04:59:33 PM
I was thinking about trying some melt and pour soap making at some point, but I have a question.

I have skin that dries out easily so I tend to use moisturizing soaps (like dove).  I'm assuming that just plain melt and pour soap would dry out my skin, what type of things could I add to this to combat it?

Would evaporated milk be good (would that go bad after awhile?)?

Thanks for any help!
