21  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / quilt block pattern help on: April 28, 2011 08:13:48 AM
 My dd has an art project to do at school, and she wanted to do some sewing. We decided on a lap quilt, and she chose the movie 'Coraline' for her inspiration. We're only going to do one or two pieced blocks, (the rest just plain fabric squares) and I need help finding a key and an octopus. Anyone who can point me in the right direction will make me SOOOO happy!
22  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / looking for sls suppliers on: April 01, 2011 04:41:23 PM
i called in my town and got rebuffed (once rudely, twice with confusion), and I can't seem to narrow my google search down enough. I don't want to buy a 50gallon drum of it, unfortunately. I live in BC, so I'm hoping to find a supplier in my province. Any help would REALLY be appreciated.
23  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Question for Canadian Soapers on: March 28, 2011 10:26:25 AM
where do you order your fragrances and colors from? I'm going to place an order within the next few days, but am stymied by the shipping prices from many places. There's a place here in BC, but the sales tax is killer. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
24  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / teaching your kids to sew on: March 11, 2011 09:07:58 AM
So, I'm about to start teaching my DD to sew. I found a really great site that gives projects in levels and covers the gamut of different skills. I wanted to share, in case anyone else is doing the same.


I am in no way connected to this site, nor am I being compensated to pimp it. Just wanted to share, is all.
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / reaction to yarn on: March 10, 2011 08:48:37 AM
Just wondering if anyone else has had this. It's not all acrylic yarn, (no reaction to the crazies like fun fur or eyelash), and I don't know if it's brand specific; I'm doing a stash-busting giant granny square afghan for my son, and I'm using some crappy cheap acrylic yarn and I've developed a huge red, puffy, rashy spot on my crochet arm. This has happened before, it goes away, so I'm not too stressed. Funny thing is, I only get the rash while crocheting - once the blanket or whatever is made, I don't react to it after.
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 'preteen' prom - i hate the word preteen on: February 25, 2011 08:42:57 AM
it's just so - urg. Nails on a chalkboard.
Luckily I was able to dig the informational gem out of my daughter that in a few months will be their 'intermediate prom' - she's in elementary school. WTH is that? seriously. Regardless of how I feel about it, I would like to make my dd a dress. The only problem I have is: my town has no place that sells patterns; one tiny fabric store that stocks mainly quilting cotton and fleece; no car to drive to the nearest town with patterns/mats. The material I can probably find amongst the relatives - but I was thinking I could whip up a simple dress for her. I just can't find a suitable free pattern - I have looked at the tutorials, but none of the dresses are what she's looking for - which is: full skirt, plain top, straps. Almost like a 1950's dress, but less fitted/tailored in the torso. I hope my explanation makes sense. If  someone has any ideas on where to direct me, I'd appreciate it. I'm hoping to not have to try to draft the pattern myself, as the fine tuning can sometimes become a mammoth task. Thanks!
27  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / newbie soaper, a few queries on: February 23, 2011 11:48:31 AM
so my soap (CP from Maremare's tute recipe) is curing right now, but I have a question or two:

   it seems kinda soft - is it going to harden up a bit?

   i poured it when my trace was REALLY light ... the spatula left a ridge (like a really soft peak stage for meringue), so I poured then, I was so nervouse about doing things right - is that what caused the softness? it's not mushy, but I bet i could mush it if i wanted to wreck my soap.

   I lined my pringles cans, and it just made a big stupid mess. I would prefer molds I don't have to line - and I like the round soap better than square, but I can quit whining and deal if I have to - are milk cartons a better idea?

   Any insight would be lovely. Thanks!
28  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / singer finesse 807 help on: January 19, 2011 06:24:48 PM
I have a flat top singer finesse 807 (the one that is attached to it's own sewing table) which was passed down to me. I don't want to have to pay $10 for the manual, but i can't figure out how to thread it. Can anyone help?
29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / gift box and ornaments on: January 06, 2011 10:03:24 AM
each year I try to make christmas ornaments for my parents, my inlaws, and us. Last year was crocheted bells, which I'd rather not attempt again. This year was cheap wood ornaments from the dollar store, paint, new ribbon (organza), and sparklies.  The box was another dollar store find, that I painted with a white background, then painted a stylized Flash symbol on it for the husband.

good old freezer paper stencil. of course by the time i'd gotten the boy to stand still, he was dirty. Dirt just loves him, I guess.
