1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: an infinitely improbable hoop on: May 08, 2011 09:08:54 PM
I agree with everyone..this totally rocks!  I've only gotten back to hand embroidery fall of last year, I'm having a really hard time with letters/alphabets.  Everything rocks..but what caught my eye first was how well stitched "hello ground" is.   Cheesy  I was always the weird-detail-kid.   Tongue

Love love love!!  I have nothing but fond memories of Sesame Street.   Grin  I still sing some of the songs from the 70's SS.  Cheesy This really rocks!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Totoro hand-painted t-shirt! on: June 18, 2010 08:28:37 AM
I absolutely ADORE this shirt!  Omg.  I'm a huge My Neighbor Totoro fan.  Actually, pretty much all Miyazaki movies, but Totoro is tops.  I seriously wish I could do this...it's gorgeous!  My daughter & I were oooohing so long, our dog started barking madly! Tongue

You rock!
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's for supper? on: April 12, 2010 06:16:40 PM
We sometimes have "theme" dinners.  Or "countries" dinners.  It's moussaka & baklava.  So very yummy!  I pretty much throw in a bunch of stuff in the moussaka.  It was originally a vegie-only (apart from the eggs, of course), but my hubby is a meat-man, so it's got ground beef...but, oh laaaa it's good!!

a slice of it (torn apart by greedy house-people Tongue):

and the baklava:

I used Key Lime honey for the baklava..and it tastes sooooo good!! Cheesy

Thank you!   Grin Is there anything special I have to do with regards to preserving?  I don't want them to have a moldy/smelly problem down the road. 

Re: popping corn..I did get myself an old-fashioned popcorn popper from Bed Bath & Beyond for Xmas! Cheesy It looks like a theater popcorn popper..but like a table top one.  And it pops most awesomely, too! Cheesy

Hiya Lindag35!

I got a book for Christmas from the wonderful, DH, "Stuffed" volume 2.  He got it at Barnes & Nobles & it's got all sorts of instructions on how to make stuffies, etc.  On pages 32 & 33, is one called "Little Me", inspired by the movie Coraline.  It's got a great, easy to follow tutorial! 
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Brother 1034D Serger/Overlock on: December 27, 2009 07:41:02 PM
I have 8 sewing machines, a serger & an industrial machine (Juki).  Ahem.  I obviously have a problem.  2 of my machines are Brothers.  Both were purchased at Walmart, both I've never had problems with.  The XL 6452 is one I've had for 8 or 9 years (not sure) & my absolute favorite, it's a work horse *knock on wood*.  I won a Singer Curvy online last year, it's my second favorite.  One machine is an Alden with a table I bought from my upholstery class teacher, I love it, too..it sings.  Really, it does.  The others are Singers that come with good tables-I bought them at estate sales & auctions.  They all work like a dream.  My serger is also one I got from Walmart, a Simplicity Serg Pro that I've had for about 7 years, too.  I have my Singers serviced once a year & the others every 6 months cos they get a lot of use.  I also do what I can at home to make sure they're always cleaned..even bought a mini-vacuum!  My embroidery machine is an Innov-is 4000.  It, too, has served me well.  I think it's up to a person, really, as far as preference is concerned.  My dream is to get a Babylock Evolution or Enlighten, though.  *SIIIIIGH*  Someday.

Good luck on your serger!  I honestly don't know what I'd do without mine!  And tying off is something that has saved my hubby from having to hear screams of frustration coming from the craft room, he's learned to do it, too.  Cheesy

Hi all!

I didn't really know where to post this..so hopefully, I'll get enough traffic here to help me with my dilemna.

Ok, I'm going to be making a doll/voodoo guy/stuffie for a friend of mine in Belfast.  I've already got the materials, etc..this isn't the first time I'll be making something like this..BUT what I want this little guy to do is sit on his rump & be rump heavy.  My friend is a journalist & writer, he will be at his home office half the time he's not at work..so I kinda wanted this as a paperweight/stress-release when he hits a mental block.  I thought about beans...or maybe sand like the ones in some pin cushions.  I'm not sure which one would be better, though.  Has anyone made something like this? 

TIA for your help!  And Happy New Year to all of you!
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: The whole Spongebob crew: Gary, Sandy, Plankton, etc... on: June 12, 2009 07:25:57 AM
I totally love them!  My kids are laughing..we're ALL Spongebob fans (I probably know all the catchy songs.."it's the best day eeeeeeveeeerrrrrrr!" Tongue). 


I am absolutely talentless in creating complicated crochets..so I'll be living vicariously through your talent!! Cheesy
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Heat'n Bond Iron On Flexible Vinyl on: May 02, 2009 07:06:30 PM
I have to agree with kellyhelene, it's super thick!  I got it to fuse to this wonderful Alexander Henry fabric I had to make into a diaper bag.  It was a beast to sew (think sewing thick vinyl) the corners.  *sigh* Needless to say, I'm not going to use it again, unless it's for the other things mentioned (placemats, etc).
