1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Help finding Recipe for "Rice Triangles" on: May 21, 2008 01:28:52 PM
I hope this is an all right place to post this, I can't seem to find a better spot.

A few years ago I was dating a guy who was from China.  His Mom makes this dish that from what I can tell is just rice and a piece or two of "sweet sausage"  She wraps the sausage and rice in corn husks I think and then boils them.   I've looked and looked for a recipe for something like this but have had no luck.  If anyone knows what I'm talking about...help lead me in the right direction.  Smiley   And if anyone knows of the sausage that is sweet, I'd love a name for that as well.  Smiley  Thanks everyone.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / A Patch for Brass Guitar??? on: May 17, 2008 11:00:02 AM
Hi....this is kind of a weird question, but my friend bought a brass biscuit guitar a few weeks ago....and after practicing for weeks, he found out he's allergic to the metal.  His elbow is breaking out in a rash where his arm rests on it.  Being a boy, his first thoughts were duct tape...but it's just too pretty to tape up I think.  Any ideas on what could be used to put there or how to adhere something to it so we'd be able to take it off again easily.

I tried to draw where we would need the patch, but I don't know how. Tongue   It would be on the upper left hand of this picture...where his arm rests while strumming.  Maybe 4 inches wide and 6 across or so.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Brainstorming for Crafts for Men on: May 11, 2008 07:52:20 PM
Hi.  My little brother is graduating from highschool next month.  I am completely stumped on what to give him.  I really want to craft at least part of his gift, but I can't think of anything.  He'll be moving this fall to his own apartment to go to college.  I can't even think of what I needed in my first apartment that I could craft. 

 I always have a problem crafting for men...I try to make whatever I craft useful or personally sentimental...at least with the guys in my life.  Any ideas would be great, my mind just isn't working tonight...and I've been procrastinating for months already. Tongue
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Selling at my First Festival. on: April 16, 2008 01:43:48 PM
I just committed to selling for the very first time at a local Bluegrass/Jam festival.....I'm more then a little overwhelmed with everything now.  Any great tips on first time/really inexpensive display ideas, how to deal with money, and does everyone have a name for their 'business'?  I make mostly patchwork or crocheted clothing, blankets, bags.  How did everyone come up with their name if you have one, this seems like it would be an important part and I have no idea how to go about choosing a name?  There's just so much that I didn't think about until now...Log Jam is in the middle of June, so I do have awhile. Smiley  
Thanks for any advice.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed Owl and Card for my G'ma on: April 22, 2007 01:43:44 PM
Hi....this is the first stuffed thing I've ever attempted to sew....even if he isn't quite perfect...I think he's a cutie.   My Grandma's 78th birthday is coming up and she loves owls...so I thought this would be a good first project to attempt. Smiley   I found the idea and pattern here.

I also made the card in the background...the bird was an old embroidery pattern I found...I just traced it onto paper and colored it with Sharpies and added the fabric background and sewed it into place  Cheesy

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A Case for a Hooker, a Pig, and a Turtle. on: April 22, 2007 01:36:00 PM
I took out my sewing machine this weekend for the first time in months and made myself a case to store my crochet hooks in.  I didn't use a pattern, but I've seen a ton of cases like this online...it's been on my to-do list for months.   Wink  Even though my photos insist I made these in 2005, it's wrong...I just need to figure out how to set the date still.


The top of it folds down and there are 3 little snaps to make sure my hooks can't escape....and I added ribbon to hold my stitch markers.

all rolled up:

I also made these guys in the last week or so.  Neither of the patterns are original, but I can't remember where I saw them....either here or crochetville...if anyone wants them though, I can try to dig them up.  Smiley  I just recently attempted making stuffed things with crochet and I'm pretty sure I'm already addicted.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Robot Camera Case on: April 22, 2007 01:26:04 PM
Hi.....it's been a while since I've posted anything, sometimes it's just so much easier to look at everyone else's great stuff.  Smiley  I made this case for my camera's last week....even though the date on my camera is off and it says I made it in 2005...I need to figure out how to set the date on it yet.  Undecided  I like to be able to bring 2 with me, so I needed something with enough room for both camera's, film, and batteries.  After an afternoon of crocheting, I came up with this.  I'm pretty proud of it; it's one of the first things I've made without a pattern, and the pockets seem to fit everything really well.  Yay.  Cheesy

I need to make a strap for it yet...but I'm not quite sure what I should do for that....until then, my old purse strap is working fine.


8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / blue bird cozie for my contacts on: January 17, 2007 11:25:01 PM
I made this a few weeks ago...it keeps the crumbs at the bottom of my purse from getting all over my contact case.  Grin
I wasn't quite sure how to make a button hole...but it works.  Wink

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / hippy wedding dress help? on: May 19, 2006 01:12:01 PM

Hi...I also posted something similar in the curvasious craftster section....I hope I'm allowed to post twice Smiley 

We're having a very simple very natural wedding as we're both pretty hippy dippy people...but I can not for the life of me find a dress....or even a pattern.  I'm looking for something that is empire waisted and flowy....and prefereably kind of long.   

If any of you know of a link, a photo, even a drawing...that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / hippy wedding? dress help needed on: May 19, 2006 01:07:21 PM
I'm looking for a dress....we're having a pretty casual wedding, but would like to keep everything natural....nothing over the top.  we're pretty hippy dippy..  Cheesy  and of course would like to have the wedding reflect our styles. 
I'm thinking of an empire wasted flowy dress....prefereably longer as my legs are not my favorite part of my body.  But I'm having an incredibly hard time finding a dress that I like...or a pattern that I like, or even a picture that I like.   Any links, or photos or even drawings would be sooooo helpful.  I'm a size 18 to 20....so I thought this dress would probably be the most flattering, and luckily what I want the most.
Thanks a ton all you crafty people Smiley
