CAMPFIRE APPLE  -  Core an apple just over half-way. Fill the hollow with cinnamon and marshmallows. Skewer it on a forked stick and hold over the coals until the marshmallow melts and the apple is easy to puncture.

To keep in the theme of the original request, do make sure to use vegetarian-safe marshmallows!

I don't know if she'll be around anytime soon but Meri, how in the heck did you create the prescription sticker?Huh  I really want to make these for my boyfriend for either his birthday or valentines...they're only four days apart.  Thanks

I used to work in desktop publishing, and am an old hand at making all sorts of goofy things.

I used a program called Adobe PageMaker, and it worked fairly well. I'm sure someone with a lot more patience than I am could make it work in Word or something similar.

Good luck!

This is a gift that I made for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day, and he really seemed to like it, and it's something that we "use" fairly frequently, so it's something he sees and is reminded of regularly. Smiley

You know, whenever I have to think of a trio of words, the ones that always come to mind are "lather" "rinse" and "repeat".

Smiley

Not that this would make any sense for your organizer, but...

Hm.

How about "death" "taxes" and "homework"?

"sex" "drugs" "rock & roll" Smiley

As with everything else like this, you could... turn it into a planter! Smiley

I went crazy at Michael's last week as floss was on sale for a quarter each.  So now most of the little floss is still pretty in their wrappers, in a box, waiting for me to get my act in gear.

If you have an AC Moore in your area, keep an eye our for their ads (in Tuesday or Wednesday papers, if I recall correctly). They often have DMC floss on sale for 8 for $1!

how about a straight guy who can sew, AND who can knit AND cook??? noooo surely not!

I think that you and my boyfriend may be two of a depressingly small number. Go, you!

And the shirt is fantastic. Nicely done. Smiley

You keep multiple threaded needles ready at one time?  That sounds very convenient.  I've been just threading the same needle with different colors each time I need to switch.

Oh yes. It's so much easier! It's also a lot easier on both your needles and your floss, to not have them constantly be rethreaded. Besides, needles are relatively cheap.  Cheesy

You inspire me to one day be nearly as organized!


*blush* If it makes you feel any better, my apartment is an utter disaster. Wink

Ok, I'm an incredible dork, and I admit this up front. So bear with me, ok?

I actually bought in to the whole StitchBow system. I own one (well, at least one) of each DMC color, and they are all stowed on StitchBow Bows. Then, the bows are all stored in binder inserts and the binder inserts are stored in binders (4 total). When I start a project, I take the colors I need out, and store them in rolls.

I also use nifty gadgets to store my floss and needles while working. I use the floss organizer to sort out all my lengths of cut thread. And I use the needle organizer to sort my threaded needles while working on a project. I have three each of the rolls, the floss organizers, and the needle organizers, so I can have three largish projects going at any time.

Did I mention, I'm a dork?  Grin

i've been going camping almost every year of my life, but am getting SICK of the same old veggie dogs over the fire, baked beans, etc.  does anyone know any fabulous vegetarian camping recipes, or have ideas?
thanks!

I highly recommend Lipsmackin' Vegetarian Backpackin'. Great book!
