2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / J.Jill ruffled scarf -- working picture link on: December 10, 2004 11:47:34 AM
Hello all,

My crochet skills are pretty sorry.  I purchased the scarf seen here:


I was hoping I could figure out how to make these ruffles but no luck.  Do any of you crafty people recognize this pattern?

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / How do you use a walking foot? on: December 07, 2004 03:34:02 PM
Hi all,

So, when I put a walking foot on my sewing machine I can sew right through the quilt top, the cotton batting and the back of the quilt?  Is that correct?  Can't be, can it?  How the heck does this thing work?

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Best products? on: September 24, 2004 12:12:27 PM
Hi, all.

I am about to go out and buy a self-healing mat, quilting ruler, rotary cutter, pins, etc.  You know, all the stuff a new quilter will need.  I am overwhelmed by the selection.  Does anyone have favorite brands or tips?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Dog Food (and human food) Chili on: September 21, 2004 03:08:11 PM
Hello dog-lovers,

I have found a good way to keep my dog happy and discourage fleas -- Chili.  Fleas, I have heard, don't like the smell of garlic.  Some people debate the safety of giving dogs garlic and you should check this out for yourself but I have given my Golden garlic in food (occasionally!) for a while and he is happy and healthy.  As for warding off fleas... eh, that's debatable but as for a happy dog festival -- you're on the right track.

Be sure all your ingredients are organic and don't have icky preservatives.

3-4 (Organic!) tomatos (Red, Green or Yellow -- or all together)
2 cups of dried beans (Kidney, Black or Appaloosa -- or all together)  Make sure to rinse and sort them.

Soak the beans overnight in cold water.
If you are using whole garlic in the recipe: chop up 2-4 cloves and brown them in a little olive oil before adding the tomatos.  Otherwise, you can put store-bought garlic in later.
Chop the tomatos into medium-sized peices and throw in a pot with a bit of water.  Cover and cook on low for a few hours while you craft.

When the tomatos are good and mushy, add the beans to the tomatos and some more water to cover them.  Cover again, turn up the heat to medium and cook for maybe an hour (check on them) until the beans are good and soft.

Then, just go nuts and add maybe a bag of frozen corn (or you can use canned but make sure it isn't loaded with salt) or shread a carrot with an apple peeler.  If you have are using pre-chopped garlic in a jar, add 2 -4 cloves worth at this point.  Throw in 2 Tbs of Chili Powder.  Add some pepper.  If you have some good-quality veggie burgers or grounds, throw those in too -- just be sure the ingredients aren't full of weird chemicals.

Now, turn the heat up (leave the pot uncovered), add some water and stir now and then to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot.  Chili will thicken.  Cool it off and enjoy it with your dog!  (You can add more spice or salt to yours but the carrots and corn should make it sweet enough so your dog will gobble it right up.)  You'll have lots of leftovers so treat your friends and their dogs.
