1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Healthy Eating/Vegetarian/Vegan Swap? on: January 27, 2014 05:17:19 PM



Any takers on exchanging stuff to encourage your way of eating? Maybe recipe holders, decorated lunch containers, etc?

I'm trying to get myself back on a veggie loving path and would love to help others reach their goals too whether meat-eating or not.
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hunting and Learning Quilt on: September 23, 2013 03:56:51 PM
Well, this quilt is FULL of mistakes. I winged the entire thing using tutorials and images from online. I picked the fabrics based on the recipient's interests....he's a 16 year old teenage boy and lives for the outdoors. It's hard to tell but I used some prints of deer and some Realtree camo fabrics.

I got my first free motion quilting foot. Used tutorials for free motion quilting, quilt as you go method and creating your own binding/binding your quilt. I learned a TON from making this, and I have 2 more in the works/planning stage before Xmas.... it took about 2 months with weekends and spare time used....there were weeks I didn't do much at all. It is a generous twin size, probably more like a full.

I know the back is wonky, it is part of the learning process I used related to quilt as you go. I learned that it was easier to quilt my strip then sew the strips together to reduce bulk under the throat of my sewing machine. Next time, I'm using a solid back to reduce the obvious wonkiness.

I used a low loft batting.

Comments and suggestions welcome! I am still proud of this quilt, it's the first one I actually quilted instead of tied and FINISHED!!!!

Mabon
[/b][/color][/size]
Autumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest, September 21st
[/color][/b]

"Mabon, (pronounced MAY-bun, MAY-bone, MAH-boon, or MAH-bawn) is the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year's crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter's Night, which is the Norse New Year.

At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection."


This swap is intended to be a smaller one as I know everyone really gets prepared for Samhain not long after. This is a 1 point swap with ability to upgrade per partner consent.

Ideas of items could be decorated candles or candleholders, a special ritual or spell kit, an item for the altar or anything that pleases your partner.

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Yummy dairy free pizza! on: May 11, 2013 03:17:35 PM
Hi all!

I am trying to go as vegan/homemade/healthy as possible so I got creative.
Whole wheat crust with herbs
Hunt's Zesty Spaghetti Sauce
Mushrooms, tomato and pineapple
I don't miss cheese at all. I put in on a silicone baking sheet to eliminate the need for oil on the pan.

1/4 of this pizza also only clocks in at about 320 calories.

6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Tofu Yogurt! (Togurt? Yofu?) on: April 25, 2013 03:34:31 AM
http://blogs.babble.com/family-kitchen/files/2011/02/Strawberry-Tofu-Yogurt.jpg
(Not my image (I took it from a blog website), but my recipe turned out to look identical in color and texture.)

Ok, not exactly yogurt (lacks fermentation), but it works like yogurt!

1/2 block tofu (i used silken)
1/2 c thawed frozen unsweetened strawberries
sugar free coffee flavor syrup to taste (I used Torani Vanilla)
dash lime juice

I whizzed it all in my Ninja blender and let it sit for a few hrs. Some people add in a banana too for "body", it is a thinner mix at the end. Or you could probably use a thicker tofu. But you get a decent strawberry yogurt-like flavor with much less sugar than the yoplait counterparts!

I adapted this from the Happy Herbivore recipe.

1/2 a recipe is about 76 calories as I worked it out.
