1  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / anyone know anything about typewriters? on: January 09, 2008 12:26:09 PM
i'm looking to buy a typewriter. although i LOVE the vintage ones, i am planning on buying it to use, and to use quite a bit, so i need some advice on where to start.

i worry that i might get a lovely gorgeous old one and i won't be able to find tape for it..

i realize if i want an old one where i could look, but what about for new-ish ones that i would be able to easily find the tape for?
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / my first ever craftster image post..nintendo pillowcase on: January 07, 2008 10:56:40 AM
hello everyone, this is my first time actually getting around to posting something i've made..

this was a quick pillow case i made for my bf for christmas, it was as a set, one said "start" one said "select!!!" i made them because he never shuts up about how he wants new pillowcases (we currently have NKOTB ones) and he loves nintendo.. i used an nes controller to base the applique off of

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / cotton gauze? EMERGENCY! on: December 20, 2007 03:03:35 PM
hi everyone, sorry but i'm having a first time emergency!

i'm making the baby quilt out of "Last Minute Fabric Gifts" and i've not got cotton gauze. it says in the directions to sandwich the batting/wadding between two layers of cotton gauze before inserting it between the top and bottom of the quilt. i'm using broidery anglais on top and a simple flannel on the bottom..

i don't have cotton gauze!
if i just sandwich the batting in and quilt it through the layers to hold it into place, that won't be terrible will it? i am assuming that the cotton gauze is meant to hold the batting in place and can see how it would keep it from coming out of the holes of the broidery anglais. would it be ok if i just used a layer of white cotton underneath the broidery anglais to hold it back? i wouldn't have to worry about the flannel side would i? or is cotton gauze absolutely NECESSARY?

please answer, asap, i am trying to complete this tonight! thank you!!
