21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Kids...plastic...husbands...AAAAGH!! [a small rant] on: June 23, 2006 11:56:11 PM
Grr... My 3 year old messed with my sewing machine sometime in the past...not sure when, because I don't go in that room very often since I had the baby. But I wanted to try some embroidery I saw elsewhere, so I made the hubby watch the baby so I could use my machine. I'm happily sewing, when the thread underneath starts piling up. Well, I start checking settings (I had caught it quickly, so it didn't mess up anything else!!) and look at the thingie that sits over the feed dogs. It was canted. So I reset THAT, then try again. then the bobbin part is "tight"... so I pull out the case. And can't get it back in, so I call the hubby to try, since he fixed that prob before. Well, he put it in wrong (After I told him how it's SUPPOSED to sit) which I didn't notice until I try to rethread the bobbin, where the stupid metal disc that catches the tthread had caught my bobbin! So I try to ease it out, and the "ear" broke!


I am so ready to nuke 'em all from orbit, then cleanse with fire. After that, I'll take their stuff......

 Cry Angry Angry

EDIT: Now I can't find a gorram replacement part...I am going to lose my ever loving MIND! Anyone have a spare bobbin case for a 4830? *curses the gods, kids, and everything else I can think of*

22  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Egg flats on: March 30, 2006 07:03:29 AM
We have breeder houses, and sometimes the "flats" that we put eggs in (hard plastic for hatching eggs) are broken (the posts, or cracked "holes") so we trash 'em. Anyone have any ideas how I can use them? I saw a couple and I just knew I could do something with them, but I don't know what. . .
23  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / A clutch! on: March 28, 2006 07:19:31 AM
I made the clutch from the book for a travel crochet kit!

That's my travel yarn next to it Smiley You cant see the hook in the skein, though. . . I cheated because I didn't line it, and made a button closure. But I didn't want to, because I'm lazy , and because I'm not keepoing anything major in it.

Worked quickly, and I had fun Smiley
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / small purse pattern - cheap and easy on: March 25, 2006 03:30:16 AM
I was mailing out some minis today when I noticed that the priority mail box I was using was about the right size for a small purse! They come in a lot of sizes, and would make a great pattern! The one I used is 8 1/2 x 5 3/8 x 1 3/4.  Just add seam allowances!
25  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / spinning from pet hair? on: February 21, 2006 09:44:57 PM
I wanted to start spinning, and I thought it would be great to make stuff using the hair that falls out when I groom my horses. I know it would probably not be good for clothing, but I was thinking of making a small horse toy for my mom from her mare's hair.

I've seen somewhere the idea, but I don't have any links or anything. . . the idea just struck me this evening.

So, would it be possible? Would it be a royal pain in the tail (pardon the pun. . .)?
