Thanks guys!   Smiley  Here's another patchwork bag I made for the same swap.  I just got this one posted.  It's meant to be a knitting project bag.

252  Patchwork Project Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MissingWillow on: March 30, 2012 07:09:25 AM
Here's another patchwork bag I made for loves2experiment in the Invite Your Partner swap.  This one is meant to be a knitting project bag, but could be used for most anything.



I had fun selecting fabric from my scrap basket!


The other side. 


I love this fabric in the lining.  I got it on sale at a quilt shop.  It reminds me of halloween for some reason.

254  Red and Blue Patchwork Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MissingWillow on: March 30, 2012 05:22:02 AM
For the IYP swap I made my partner, the fabulous loves2experiment, a purse inspired from her pinterest.  I figured out the patchwork dimensions all by myself.  Eeek.. math!  The colors were also inspired by her pinterest and I love the combination! This was my first attempt at a magnetic closure, it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. 



She's a tea lover so I also included a matching tea wallet.

We cleaned up our raised beds and mixed in fresh compost this morning.  This is our first batch of tomatoes, we started them indoors in January.  We planted cucumbers in pots this week and carrots, peas, chard and spinach in our newly refreshed outdoor beds.  I love this time of year!

256  Creamy Pasta with Fresh Peas in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: March 26, 2012 01:59:56 PM
We harvested our first peas this weekend, so a spring pasta dish made it onto our dinner menu.  



I melted 2 tbsp. of butter then sauteed 4 minced garlic cloves and a thinly sliced leek for approx. 5 minutes.


Then I sliced a few mushrooms and added them to the pan for a few more minutes, along with salt and pepper to taste.  Then I turned the heat off and got busy with the rest of the ingredients.


Here they are: pappardelle pasta, 2 lemons, fresh peas, low fat ricotta cheese and parmesian cheese.  The first thing I did was zest the two lemons into the pan of vegetables.  No lemon juice was used in this recipe, I saved the zest-less lemons in the fridge for another day.


I cooked the peas in boiling water for 2 minutes then scooped them out with a slotted spoon and moved them to the pan of veggies.  The pasta nests went right into the boiling water and cooked for 4 minutes.


I moved the cooked pasta to the pan of veggies and turned the heat on medium.  


I alternated adding large spoonfuls of ricotta cheese with small ladels of the pasta water.  I didn't measure, but think I used about 1/2 cup of the pasta water and 3/4 cup of the ricotta.  I then mixed in 1/4 cup of the parm cheese.  I only cooked this for about 2 more minutes while stirring to incorporate everything together.


It turned out really nice!

I received two awesome packages today!  First up... my package from CraftyMamaBee.  One of my themes was really to receive something that my daughter collects, and I know nothing about... the Venture Brothers.  She's obsessed and I am clueless.  CraftyMamaBee sent these fantastic magnets, my daughter is going to flip over them!  She also sent a notebook that was popped right into my purse to replace the one I recently filled.  Thank you so much, CraftyMamaBee!


Now for my second fantastic package... I raise and collect sheep and bee themed items, bebedechocolate hit both of those themes with a needlebook (which I really needed) featuring an adorable sheep print.  I collect sheep related fabrics and don't have this one yet so score!  She also sent bee themed stickers.  Thank you so much bebedechocolate! 



This was a great swap, I'm looking forward to the next one.   Smiley

We got an early start on peas in our greenhouse.  I'm making cheesy pasta with peas, mushrooms and leeks for dinner tonight.

My motto is everything is better when it glows in the dark.  I received the most amazing papercutting from silentblair!  One of my collectible themes is Game of Thrones.  She did a House Stark direwolf. Isn't it fantastic??  I am in seriously awe of her skills.  I just love it, thank you so much Blair!   Grin
