I finally made a city page. The background was made from playing with leftover dye. The quote it an excerpt from the Walt Whitman poem Mannahatta.

Next up is a facing nature page.

I received from Mistress Jennie and it's so wonderful I can't express it so I'm just going to show you all.

First, I got home to a huge box bursting at the seams. Everything was nicely wrapped with no detail neglected.

First I opened two gorgeous bracelets: one a garnet love bracelet (garnet is my birthstone) and the other is a moonstone patronus bracelet (Jennie helped me discover my patronus while chatting for this swap so I feel that this is extra special):

Next (this is so freaking cool), a beaded mobile!!:

I don't know if this picture is any better than yours Jennie but this is pretty much the coolest.

I got an "Angels have the Phonebox" bookmark. So classic Jennie I love it:

Linen Napkins!!! These things are 100% me. I cannot touch them enough. I've needed/wanted a set forever and these are seriously perfect:

Detail close up:

A set of Alysa Burke inspired doodle cups for pencils/brushes/whatever. I think I'm just going to use them for everything!

Actually, Jennie, I liked your plant idea...I'm thinking succulents?

THE LARGE: check out this awesomeness:

It's a rag rug made from cotton yarn and t-shirt yarn!!! I love Jennie's words: think if it as a hand made sweater that you can totally walk all over! So, so awesome.

And as if that wasn't enough: EXTRAS!

Crochet dish cloths that look like mandalas (love):

Mojito jelly and Kalsch Beer Mustard:

These babies are better than gold to me. Check out the mustard goodness:

Cute strawberry socks that I "needed" (ha!) and chocolate (this chocolate will not last the night!):

And last but SO not least, home-made soaps! Old bay scrubbing soap with oatmeal for my husband post-blacksmith activities and rosewood & calendula goats mild for me! The scents are perfect, Jennie no worries!

I can't contain my gratitude. Jennie has been so generous to me during nearly my entire time on Craftster. I invited her to swap to return the generosity, but now I feel I owe her more. You are a beautiful generous spirit my friend, THANK YOU!

And now to add to my pile for Jennie which is suddenly looking quite small...

Home now and missing the wilderness so I made a mountain square:

This one might be my favorite...so far.

My latest square: Capricorn! Do you guys think it needs a background of some kind?

And just for fun, my current stitching view:

Love that coin purse and the pineapple chutney sounds soooo good!!

I'm glad you like your package rantyhippie. I was excited to involve my husband in a project.

Husband is proud of our project and told me to post some pre-send pics, lol. I'm going to try to use his skills more often  Cheesy

I made 10 towels and dyed the tie-dyed side. Husband was a little restricted in what he could do because I told him the holder couldn't weigh a thousand pounds! He used materials found in his garage.

I received from rantyhippie today!!

An almost group shot:

I got an awesome crocheted market bag, a plastic reusable bag, a ridiculously frugal cookbook, and a crochet washcloth. It's all so useful!

She also sent a towel with a crocheted holder that looks awesome in my new stove:

And it all came with this Spider-Man card that my kiddo enjoyed:

Thank you rantyhippie! This was a great swap. I hope you get your package soon!

This has been on my "Things to make" board forever!


Finally got around to making my version for my father-in-law's 60th birthday. His name is DeWitt, but everyone calls him "Witt," hence the intentional misspelling on my version.

I see more wooden signs in my future.  Cheesy

10  Spaghetti Squash Alfredo in Cooking: Challenge Entries by Abbeeroad on: August 18, 2014 08:54:11 AM
I've been wanting to try spaghetti squash for a long time now. I knew that the only way I could get anyone else in my family to eat it, however, was if I smothered it in cheese. So when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to give it a shot.

1 medium-sized spaghetti squash
1 Tablespoon butter
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
2 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon cream cheese
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus 2 Tablespoons extra for topping
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Crushed red pepper flakes and fresh parsley, for optional garnish

I roasted the squash the night before I baked it at 350 degrees F for about an hour. Unfortunately, the next day I realized I did not save my squash skins for re-baking (and lovely presentation), so I used a 9x9 baking dish instead. Other than that I pretty much followed the instructions in the link above.

My squash was also a little over roasted I think and I lost some of the spaghetti-like definition of the squash when I scraped it out of the skin. That aside, it came out amazingly delicious. Even my husband ate it (but not the kiddo).

It looks a bit blob-y in this pic:

But here's the evidence of deliciousness:

The crushed red pepper was an excellent addition. I'm hoping we can make spaghetti squash part of our regular dinner rotation. Maybe I'll even try a recipe with less cheese next time!
