11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / particleboard kitchen and bathroom cabinets on: June 11, 2006 03:40:01 PM
I really want to re-vamp our kitchen and bathroom cabinets (which unfortunately look the BEFORE in this thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63448.0 )

My husband insists that they would be a terrible pain to paint because they have a laminate surface on the front. I would really like to try though. Has anyone painted this type of cabinet before? What steps did you take to make the paint job look great?

12  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / A little espaol with patterns from the 'Stitch it Kit' on: June 03, 2006 04:39:07 PM
I'm a high school Spanish teacher and need to have gifts for several of my seniors who are graduating and going off to college. I decided to buy some pillowcases and embroider them to say 'Dreaming in Spanish'. I used the 'Stitch it Kit' for the banner and the letters. The designs are common Mexican motifs found on ruins and art from ancient Mexico. I just drew the motifs as best as I could and then transferred them on the pillows.

13  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / 4 seasons towels on: May 07, 2006 05:11:05 AM
There are plenty of days of the week towels out there, but do you know of any 4 seasons towels? Or free patterns that could be made into something like this as a set? I'm not quite ready to make a set of seven towels, but 4 I think I could handle.
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered geraniums on: May 04, 2006 01:25:45 PM
I made this over the last 4 days as a gift for my mom for Mother's Day this year. I'm a beginning embroiderer, so I think I made some mistakes while doing this. Most noticeably, there is puckering. I'm still going to frame it though and I love how it looks in general.

If anyone has advice about puckering--help me out. I used a round frame and it just doesn't seem to keep the fabric taut enough for me. I think the material I chose was kind of dense too and therefore I had to pull the fabric more to get the needle through.

15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Embroidery project and pattern swap on: May 04, 2006 06:07:40 AM
Is anyone interested in participating in an embroidery project and pattern swap? We could make something (or several items) for our partners based on their preferences. Also, we could include a fun pattern or two in the package as well.

I think that almost anyone could participate in this swap, because embroidery is something that is not hard for even beginners to pick up. There are lots of patterns out there that even beginners can handle--and I speak from experience Smiley

Check out this gallery https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42430.0 from an embroidery swap last year.

And reply to this post if you are at all interested!
16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidered recycled sweater bags on: April 10, 2006 03:12:38 PM
I made these for a recycled/ earth day swap out of old felted sweaters and embroidered them to give them a little more pizazz.

17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my first embroidery--flowers on a handkerchief on: April 02, 2006 06:27:35 AM
I bought a Leisure Arts book yesterday called 'teach yourself to embroider' and this is the first result.

It was definitely a learning experience-I mastered the 'lazy daisy' and stem stitch, but definitely goofed up on the bullion knot and whipped spider web. The good news is that after thinking about it last night, I'm pretty sure I could do all of them now. I think I'm on my way to another crafty obsession!

Speaking of embroidery, does anyone have the book 'The New Crewel'? I'd like to see some finished projects from it. It looks so cute.

19  KNITTING / Knitalongs / River Forest Gansey from Handknit Holidays by JoLene Treace on: January 11, 2006 06:43:30 AM
Is anyone interested in a knitalong for this men's sweater? I signed up at the Handknit Holidays knitalong site, but no one seems to be making the sweater yet.

20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / your favorite casserole recipe on: January 03, 2006 08:52:34 AM
What is your favorite casserole recipe? I asked for casserole dishes for Christmas just so I could make mine--a squash casserole. Here is the recipe for the squash casserole my family makes:

3 squash (medium) sliced and brolied until tender, then drain and mash (summer squash and / or zucchini squash are fine)
Then stir in:
1/2 pound velveeta cheese (approximately one cup), cut up
one chopped up medium opnion
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 of a 3/4 cup of crackers crumbs (save the rest to sprinkle on the top of the casserole)Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Sprinkle remainder of cracker crumbs on the top and serve hot!

I would love to collect some other recipes to expand my casserole making repertoire!
