1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / another spray paint fiasco on: April 27, 2005 07:36:52 AM
note to self:

never spray paint outdoors on a windy day.

Lucky me, i was put in charge of decorating the table pieces for my friends wedding. The centerpieces for the tables involved some pine leaves and silver paint among other things, and of course, being the 'crafty' one, the maid of honour handed me the can of spray paint.

so the first few went fairly well, but then all of a sudden the wind picked up and the little cove type area i was standing in in the yard turned into a virtual wind tunnel. one ruined pair of capris and shoes later, i was covered with paint, the can was empty and i had six pieces to go. I'm sure i looked fabulous at the checkout in the hardware store when i went to purchase another can.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / personal preference re interfacing on: April 03, 2005 08:30:41 PM
i think i might have to post this in the clothing section, but seeing as its for a bag i'm making here goes:

which do you prefer? fusable interfacing, or the kind that you just sew into your projects?


i've heard the complaint that fusable interfacing can pucker/discolour, but i'm wondering if this is just something overcome with experience? i've sewn a few projects now, but none have required interfacing yet, and i'd like to make a stiff bag that will hold its shape (similar to the 'jordy' bag but not quite).

thanks for the help

4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / hey vegetarians and all you bean lovers on: July 29, 2004 07:21:14 PM
here is my favourite recipie for chilli bean salad! yummy! everytime i bring this salad to a potluck, it gets rave reviews. 

Chilli Bean Salad

2 cans Kidney Beans
1 can Romano Beans
green pepper diced
1 small red onion diced
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 tsp chilli powder
3 tbs vinegar
1 tsp sugar
tsp salt

heat chilli powder and oil in a sauce pan for 2 min. remove from heat stir in vinegar, sugar, onions and salt. Stir into drained beans in a large serving bowl. Refrigerate for 10 min. stir in green pepper, mix, serve.

and really, you can change it up as much as you want. sometimes i use red onions sometimes white, whatever i have on hand. Two quick tips: 1) make sure the oil isn't too hot, otherwise you'll scorch the chilli powder and 2) i like serving the salad at room temperature, or even slightly warmer it draws out the flavours better.
