Tonight I started with one of those boxed mixes.  I think it was a Tuna Alfredo something.  I added chopped olives and shredded parmesan and lots of white pepper.  Once it was cooked through I put it in an 8 x 8 pan topped it with some crumbled potato chips and cheese and baked it until the cheese was melted and a little crispy.  Yummy!  Smiley
4  UNITED STATES / Wyoming / Moving Back to Wyoming! on: February 07, 2011 02:23:53 PM
Hi there!  I thought I'd see if there were still any Wyoming craftsters out there since most of the posts here are pretty old.  My husband and I are headed back to Wyoming (from Montana) at the end of the month.  We're going to be on a cattle ranch South of Lusk.  Just wanted to say "Hi" if there are any other Wyomingites out there.  Smiley

This might be a stupid question, but what is bicarbonate of soda?  And where would I find it?  Thanks!
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ironing... on: February 06, 2011 10:30:54 PM
I'm with AimeeRose.  I won't iron my husband's shirts, but all he does is sit horseback all day so he's got noone to impress but the cows.  (OK, that's not all he does, but you get the idea...)

I've always hated ironing until I started quilting recently.  Now I'm learning to enjoy it.  I think part of it has to do with the fact that I'm from the generation of "wrinkle-free" and jersey knit.  We've never really needed to iron much before.

My mom talked me through my first blouse pattern last summer, but since then I've just been scouring the web looking for tutorials.  Sew Mama Sew has tons of links to all sorts of tutorials for  sewers of all levels.  (I'm new to Craftster, so I don't know if there are links here as well, sorry.) 

I think the best thing to do is decide what you're most interested in sewing (clothes, pillows, bags, etc) and start looking for tutorials and patterns in that genre.  That's what I did.  I never thought I'd be interested in quilting, now I'm in 2 quilting bees and a member of my local quilt guild.  Smiley

Good luck and have fun!

That's a neat suggestion to cut aluminum foil.  I'll have to remember that when it's time to sharpen my scissors.  Thanks!
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: I have this fabric and have NO IDEA what to make with it. suggestions please? on: February 06, 2011 09:55:16 PM
I see the yellow striped fabric as being a beach-y.  Maybe some sort of cover-up.  A wrap around skirt or something?  And it's hard to tell, but it almost looks like the ends already have some sort of finish of them.

I think I would make a scarf out of the blue plaid fabric.  Especially since you said it's really soft.

As for the lace...personally I would add it to the bottom of a couple of my tanks because my tank tops don't cover everything they used to. 

Good luck!  I'd love to see what you decide to make with these fabrics.
