1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Searching for Artist of this on: October 06, 2009 10:25:33 AM
Hi there Smiley Recently a friend of mine posted this on a forum and something twigged in my head. It looks very 'craft' like and I am trying to seek down the owner/creator of them so I can hopefully purchase some, or something similar.

Hope you can help!

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Newb Question about Fabric Sizes on: June 04, 2008 03:40:37 PM
Firstly, I bow to all quilters, gods of patience totally. I can't quilt to save my life, I have the concentration span of a gnat Cheesy

Secondly, I have loads of left over fabrics that a friend mentioned to me would be good to sell/trade as quilting bundles and 'fat quarters' etc, but I am totally new to quilting and simply looked blank at her words.

What is a fat quarter, thin quarter, jelly roll and charm packs? I am at your mercy and hope you can answer these questions Cheesy

Many thanks

7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / New Year Leaping Salmon on: February 07, 2008 06:28:34 PM
I hope you like this Cheesy It was a new year gift to my friend who was holding a party. (and sorry for lack of recipe, I just kind of make them up as I go along Cheesy)

My boyfriend and myself had been doing the christmas shopping and we came across the fish counter where the woman was reducing the HUGEST (4 pounder) salmon I had seen so he decided to snap it up so I could make a 'leaping salmon'. Uh huh, thanks hunny Cheesy

Firstly my poor friend had to keep it in her freezer as mine was FULL, before bringing it around to me so I could cook the poor fishy.

So, take your fish. I did this in the oven as I did not in any way have a pot big enough to boil it, and it worked out pretty darned well. Lay out some foil bigger than your fish and double layered and gently place your fish ontop and bend it so when cooked it maintains the 'leaping' look. Add some white wine, sliced onions, dill and sliced lemon over the fish (also you can stuff the cavity of the fish with it) and wrap the fish up in the foil and make sure it is secure without holes!

I set my oven to 180 degrees and cooked the beast for about 1 hour 30 mins  and reduced the heat of the oven to 140 for 30 mins and hauled it out. be careful not to break the foil.

open the foil at the top and let your salmon cool down enough so that you can handle it. And now it gets messy. Open the foil and drain off the liquid that remains before placing the salmon onto the platter you want to serve it, take a sharp knife and run the blade down the back just through the skin (remove fins) and begin to peel off the skin of the salmon. ICK ICK ICK! Slimey mess!

Once done, remove the darker salmon flesh (it is bitter as it has a higher blood content, usually looks grey) to reveal the perfectly pink and lovely sakmon. Wait until it is completely cool and decorate with fresh salad leaves, mayonnaise down the back and halves of cucumber slices. I served it with dill, lemon and cucumber and a dill mayonnaise dip Smiley

Sorry about the photo, was on my mobile phone Cheesy

Everyone loved it!

Hallo! I did this last year and thought I would put it up here, as I am chuffed with it. It is a finished digital painting (which one day I Hope to print off and hang on my wall Cheesy) of a fantasy cat woman. It was published last year in ImagineFX (A computer art magazine) in the Artists Surgery because I needed to learn how to paint hair Cheesy

Anyway, here she is:
Painted in Painter IX on PC and took a hefty load of hours (20+)
