36  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Have A Tomato on: July 28, 2015 03:39:55 PM
Embroidery on printed fabric, approximately 3.5 x 5 inches.  The design is adapted  from vintage tomato crate art, and the words are a play on the famous line from one of my very favorite movies, The Old Dark House, uttered by my favorite actor, Ernest Thesiger, who was a world-class expert in embroidery.  More about this crafty nerd:  http://ernestthesiger.org

38  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Enchiladas Verdes Casserole on: July 13, 2015 05:29:08 PM
2-3 cups slightly crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup homegrown onion, minced
1 T olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
2 cups cooked and chopped chicken meat
1 cup yogurt or sour cream
1-2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 - 2 cups green chile salsa 
8 oz Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Cover the bottom of a casserole pan with crushed tortilla chips
Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan; saute onion and garlic, add chicken, cook for five minutes or so, add yogurt and broth.  If it seems too liquid, add some starch of your choice (I used tapioca flour)
Cover crushed tortillas with the chicken mixture; pour the salsa over the chicken mixture, then top the whole thing with lots of cheese.

Bake at 325 F for 20-30 minutes




39  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Carpets and rugs on: July 10, 2015 08:41:59 AM
Do any of you stitch rugs or carpets?  I'm thinking I'm going to have to start stitching larger scale things, because my stupid hands are hurting all the time from doing small work.  I really wanted to get into truly tiny, dolls house scale miniature stitchery, but fate seems to have decreed otherwise.  Angry   My favorite historical needleman, Ernest Thesiger, specialized in large projects such as carpets, upholstery, and wall-hangings.  His hands had been blown up in the war, so it's not surprising that he preferred to work large.  My hands have never been injured except I once broke one of my pinkies Roll Eyes so I have no excuse for pain.  Angry  Very annoyed by it, as you can see by the grumpy faces I'm distributing through this post.   Angry

The main problem with stitching rugs is that they will immediately get puked and peed on by our cats.   Cry
