11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on: March 28, 2010 03:05:54 PM
Hello to all the photographers out there!
April 25 is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and I'm wondering if anyone would like to do a photo-along in celebration.
I know it's still almost a month away but I figure for those of us that don't already have pinhole cameras, we'll need to make them.

This website http://www.pinholeday.org/ is all about WPPD and has great links to different pinhole camera building instructions.
There is also this thread by Lufah about making a matchbox pinhole camera https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240778.0.

So, who wants to make a pinhole camera and take some pictures?
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / advice on birthday quilt please! on: November 14, 2009 11:09:57 AM
So my Grammie is turning 75 New years day and we're having a big surprise party for her. I want to make her a lap quilt but I'm not sure where to start. I've quilted before, so that's not the issue. I need to decide on a pattern and oolors without asking her because I don't want to ruin the surprise.

I know she likes pinks and blues and greens, muted tones. So I'm thinking maybe a patchwork style with a variety of prints. Any ideas on that?

Also, what is a good lap quilt size? I mostly make baby quilts.

Any suggestions would be great, I want to get started right away.
13  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Any interest in a craft fair? Amherst area, November. on: September 03, 2009 07:02:26 PM
My church is looking for ways to fundraise for our building in Sunderland which needs a lot of work to make it the community center we want it to be. I'm thinking of suggesting a craft fair, Thanksgiving weekend which I would help to organize. Would anyone be interested in participating? We're not a stuffy church, so as long as your items aren't explicit in nature, there'd be no problem.
I'm thinking $25 for a table plus either a raffle item or bake sale item donation.  It would be well advertised in the papers and online.
14  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Need advice! on: April 09, 2009 04:17:29 PM
Hello all!
I've just created my website selling organic cotton blankets, bibs, cloths, and quilts. I would love for some of you to check it out and let me know *honestly* what you think of the site, the products and/or the prices.
Thanks so much in advance!
15  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Teeny-Tiny fabric scrap on: February 25, 2009 05:50:28 PM
You know those tiny bits of fabric left over from sewing/quilting/serging? I have literally pounds of those. I highly doubt there's any use for them other than stuffing, which I don't need. Anyone know if you can recyle or compost cotton? All my scraps are cotton, mostly organic. I hate to throw them all away.
16  COOKING / Dessert / chocolate cake question on: September 07, 2007 12:05:19 PM
So I have a recipe for a chocolate cake that I absolutely love, but it's just a doctored boxed mix (from The Cake Doctor). I would like to make it from scratch. I've included the recipe. my question is, does anyone know what dry ingredients go into a devils food cake mix so that I can make it from scratch?

1 package Devils food Cake mix
1 package instant chocolate pudding
1/2 Cup water
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Cup sour cream

Mix all ingredients on low for 30 seconds, scrapes down sides of bowl and mix on medium 2 minutes.
Pour into pans and bake as follows at 350 degrees F
 8x2" pan 3 cups batter 30-35 minutes
 9x2" pan 5 1/2 cups batter 30-35 minutes
 8x3" pan 5 cups batter 55-60 minutes
 10x3" pan 8 cups batter 60-75 minutes (bake this size at 325 degrees F)
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / organic cotton quilt on: July 02, 2007 04:29:49 AM
so this project is the culmination of a lot of planning. and in that planning it seemed like it would be a lot of work. but it wasn't. so I give you a 9-patch baby quilt made with hand dyed organic cotton fabrics.
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / quarter cirlce skirt on: June 23, 2007 08:47:17 AM
I've seen circle skirts and I've seen half circle skirts, but can you make a quarter circle skirt? If so, how? I'm just looking for a less-full but still really simple skirt to make.
19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / refinishing an enamel top table on: June 23, 2007 06:19:26 AM
Is it possible? I have a lead on a free enamel top table which has a few chips in it, would it be possible to paint over it? or is there another (inexpensive) way to fix the enamel? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / amazing whole wheat bread recipe on: June 16, 2007 05:46:31 PM
I got this recipe from "The Family Homestead" (http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/deliciouswwbread.htm). It is the best whole wheat bread I've ever made. The extra gluten makes all the difference. I used store bought white whole wheat flour, but if you have a grinder and grain, do grind your own, it's so much better for you.

Delicious Whole Wheat Bread
makes 2 loaves
Crystal Miller

2 cups warm water
1/3 cup honey
1 T yeast
1/3 cut olive oil
2 t. salt
1/3 cup gluten flour (vital wheat gluten)
5 to 7 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour

In a large bowl or in a large mixer (such as a Kitchen Aid or Bosch type) combine the water, yeast and honey. Let sit for a few minutes to give the yeast a chance to start working.  Add the salt, oil, gluten flour and 3 to 4 cups of whole wheat flour. Continue to add more flour until the dough does not stick to the side of the bowl and does not feel sticky to the touch.  Knead for 4 minutes in a Bosch mixer or 7 to 10 in other mixers or 10 to 15 minutes by hand.

When dough has finished kneading let it rise once until doubled in bulk (unless you are using a Bosch type mixer and in this case you can skip the 1st rising). Punch down dough and divide it into 2 pieces and form into loaves and set in bread pans.

Let it rise in a slightly warm oven (this means that you turn the oven on for just 2 or 3 min. or until you can feel the heat and then turn it off, if it is too hot then it will kill the yeast)  for 15 to 25 minutes or until the dough is inch above top of pan.  Turn oven to 350 (without taking bread out) and bake for approx. 30 minutes or until golden brown.
