1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Mini Art Quilt Swap 7 Gallery! on: September 17, 2014 11:51:37 AM
Hello there quilty folk!

I posted in the new swap idea forum about an art quilt swap when I was directed over here. Yay! Just what I was looking for. I am pretty booked up through September but was wondering if anyone was planning on making this happen anytime in the next month or two. Thanks!

Hey Candice! I've organized these in the past but am taking the year off swapping since I'm busy being the president of my quilt guild. If anyone else wants to organize a round, that's awesome, but I will probably not do one until January-ish when I'm finally free of my current duties Cheesy

I love butternut squash ravioli, I bet the pumpkin is good too! With a sauce of butter, fried sage leaves, and walnuts!

Mmm, looks amazing. I'm pretty much of the school of dessert that says "if it's not chocolate, why bother" but I will always make an exception for banana pudding, and I'm totally intrigued by the inclusion of cream cheese!

Ooh, that looks good calliemae! Thanks!

We had a nice day, she took me out for lunch (to the sushi place we went to, kittykill!) and then we got groceries and cooked all afternoon. We got a ton of good stuff in their freezer, I figured 36 portions for about $2 a portion! Then we made dinner and ate together with her boyfriend!

Our poor neglected thread! Summer is always so crazy busy! Anyone doing any prep or planning?

A friend of mine asked me to help teach her how to cook healthy recipes recently when she was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Before we got started, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cervical cancer and had a hysterectomy. While she was healing at home, we did a meal train for her and lots of friends brought her dinner every day or every other day for a few weeks. Her last meal train meal was last night, and she finally feels better enough to venture out of the house for a bit.

All that to say, today we're doing some grocery shopping, food prep, and cooking lessons today! I want to teach her how to cook some new things but also set her up for meals for the next couple weeks since the meal trains are over. She wanted to learn how to cook meat because she feels comfortable making vegetarian meals but not meat (but likes eating it). I've spent a couple days planning what we're going to work on and made a bunch of lists about easy things she can eat for dinner (and take for lunch as leftovers the next day) and this is what I've come up with:

--Ground beef, cook with green peppers and onions, portion out and freeze-to add to later dishes such as spaghetti, pizza, burritos, tacos, or to make into enchiladas

--Baked turkey meatballs-to eat with barbecue sauce or to add to pasta dishes

--Roasted veggies-to eat tonight and with later dinner during the week, or to top salads

--Baked whole chicken-to make into enchiladas for the freezer, chicken salad, and chicken rice soup

--Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

--Pan seared Salmon with lemon and butter for tonight's dinner

I also roasted her some chickpeas last night to snack on. She said she didn't like chickpeas, but everything's better roasted! If her and her bf don't like them I'll just take them back home Smiley

9  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / CHALLENGE 102 ENTRIES / Sloth Sock Monkey on: September 05, 2014 03:35:42 PM
Sooo I made this so-ugly-he's-cute Sloth for the Goonies Never Say Die Swap 6 years ago!

Poor Sloth's lumpy face and head is particularly good for making into a sock monkey, because they can be difficult to stuff evenly. No worries here, lumpy is good!  I used some mismatched buttons for his eyes, fun fur for his hair, felt for his mouth, and bias tape for suspenders.  I'm kind of horrified now about how bad the candy bar and the t-shirt are, but hey, this was 6 years ago and my partner seemed to like it!
