1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Where to find unique buttons for Thor Dress on: January 10, 2016 04:54:06 PM
Hi Guys,

I brought this dress http://hottopic.scene7.com/is/image/HotTopic/10445367_hi?$pdp_hero_zoom$

But already two of the buttons have fallen off. Rather then replace them with the standard button I was wondering if anyone on their travels has found a place to find unique buttons. I was thinking perhaps Thor's hammer or even a viking style button.

Google is bringing back button/pin results rather then dress buttons.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sweet Potato Casserole - a side or dessert? on: January 02, 2016 12:39:27 AM
So I should start with I'm Australian and for fun and to celebrate the fantastic, most wonderful time we had in the US during September we wanted to add some traditional home-style American dishes to our holiday season.

I baked up this Sweet Potato Casserole http://allrecipes.com/recipe/234805/chef-johns-sweet-potato-casserole/

Everyone at the dinner party (pot luck style) last night thought it was a dessert. Some were adding whipped cream.

Is this recipe close to what a "true" Sweet Potato Casserole would be or is it just that as Australian's we aren't used to sweet side dishes with our main meal.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / what is a good garland length? on: September 05, 2012 03:18:49 AM
Hi guys,

I'm going to make a garland for a crafty friend for christmas. But what is a good length?

I like to drape them over my bookshelves or door frames. So I like longer ones.

But if you were to make a garland how long you would make it.

I can't ask this friend as it is a secret santa within my craft group

5  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Kids' Craft Swap Round 5 signup 5/25-6/4 Send by 6/29 on: June 24, 2012 05:13:22 PM
We have finished (I think) its been a while since I was in a swap and I had to get some of the ladies in my craft group to tell me when we had reached our 3 smalls and 1 medium.
The kiddies have brought an extra item and some Australian and Japanese candy for their partners. I'm think all they need to do, is write a little letter and I think we are right to send.

We are having a small hiccup on our end. Both kiddies have been selected for Cross Country this weekend and have been training all week. So craft has been put aside.

They're projects, some haven't even been started, are sitting there. On my craft table taunting me, taking up the space that my sewing machine would normally have. I've been tempted to just start them off (I haven't, I've been good).

The plan was to send out early, but with this weekend, I'm not sure we will get out early.

The kids have been working hard at their ideas.

The kiddies pinned out some pattern pieces, then cut them out (which was a bit hit and miss, but we worked around that, lol) and then the kiddies and I used the sewing machine to make what I thought would be a medium but now with the adjustments that have been made I'm not sure it quite makes a med.

We might have to put something with it to get it over the medium line Smiley

we've ordered some more supplies and should be finished this weekend. Then we will have to wait for an item to come over from the UK and we will be right to post Smiley

My two kiddies, from Australia, have signed up if anyone wants to be partnered with someone across the pond. If we are partnered with someone from the states we are going to need to send out a week earlier so we can use Skippy Post and avoid the huge surcharge our Australia Post charges to send to you guys. So being partnered early really might work for us.

Alexander is 9 and would love to be partnered with someone who loves pokemon, he doesn't mind the age or gender of his partner.

Megan is 7 and would love to be partnered with a girl who loves "girlie" things just like her. She also loves Moshi Monsters and I'm sure if she were to be partnered with someone who loved Moshi Monsters too she wouldn't mind age or gender either.

Why not have a look on some pattern sites like Ravelry.?

You can search by yarn weight and it might give you some inspiration.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / On the search for the ultimate Rocky Road Combo's on: February 20, 2012 10:37:56 PM
I'm on the search for the ultimate Rocky Road Combo...

So far I have:

Standard Rocky Road - being Marshmallows, Glace' Cherries, Coconut and Peanuts, then covered in tempered semi sweet (milk) chocolate

Jr Rocky Road - being mini marshmallows, mini banana lollies, jelly snakes, M&M's, then covered in tempered semi sweet (milk) chocolate

Mint Rocky Road - being mint leaves, choc coated mini cookies, Coconut and Marshmallows (which I store overnight with the leaves and cookies to infuse that minty flavor) then covered in tempered bitter sweet (dark) chocolate which I seed with Mint Aero bar's

Cookies and Cream Rocky Road - being Oreo Cookies, crumbled lightly, marshmallows, Coconut, then covered in tempered white chocolate

Honeycomb Rocky Road - being Violet Crumble bars, crushed lightly, Marshmallows, coconut and then covered in tempered semi sweet (milk) chocolate

I would like to do more... maybe something with Whoppers (Malteser's or Mighty Malt's)

or something with Milky Way Bars (US bars - They are called Mars Bars here in Australia and the UK)

I'd really love to use some Pineapple Lumps, a kiwi lolly, that is like a pineapple marshmallow covered in chocolate, they are thin (maybe less then half an inch)

But I'm open to any suggestions Smiley
