TANish...Paint Stain? by [email protected]
I need some help. We painted barn boards (don't ask) last weekend, and I ended up with a big blob of paint on the butt of my brand new jeans. I washed the whole load, my clothes, dh's and dd's clothes together in cold water, and none of the paint came out. Can you think of a way to spot treat...

OT - That caramel recipe by Johanna Gibson
Hello, This is from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, so I will put American terms on the left and UK terms in parentheses. I didn't weigh things as I went, so I hope the UK folks interested have a US measuring cup in the house! Caramels: 1 cup butter (a standard package of butter in the UK...

Send me a toddler by Polly Esther
I need one to make something sticky. Because I bring to quilting some minor challenges - one eye, weak knees and a limited attention span, to mention a few, I thought it would be very helpful to have a real cover on my design wall. Up until now, it was covered with $1 a yard polyester terry cloth....

OT - time for an update by Queen of Squishies
I have survived driving in all kinds of Midwest weather for 12 days, some of which scared me to death. But I did it! : ) DH's blood is coming into the range they want it, but very slowly. That's fine, I know this will work itself out. He has lost a great deal of the use of his right arm. He's...

Because my dear QI kitty Mir accidentally bit the h**l out of my left index finger (right through the first joint) and it is infected and swollen like a sausage. I've got ten days of antibiotics thanks to that little furball. (I've been researching the joint problems, meningitis, tendinitis,...

Thread colors for MQ (long) by Pat in Virginia
some time ago someone here asked about using more than one color quilting thread on a quilt. I said that while I had never done it, I thought it would work okay. HA! I inadvertently lied. Since then I noticed that my little Down Under Santa WH has at least 4 colors of thread. Yesterday I was...

O. MY. GOSH. Suprise S.E.X. !! by hfw
Had to go pick up a batt I'd ordered at a not so local QS, so figured I'd go to the JoAnn's up that way with my coupon. Get there and they're not honoring the coupons...because everything in the store is at least 40% off! Fabrics were a 2 yd minimum, at 60% off, or 70% if you finished a bolt....

my sewing machine is sick by Marijke
Sigh. My Husqvarna Iris is in the sewing machine hospital right now. Something is wonky with her bobbin. I'll find out tomorrow the prognosis and the cost, but please, spare a thought for poor Iris, all by herself among sewing machines and sergers she's never met before. She had only just begun...
