Wow, Ludi!  Shocked

It's very inspiring to see everyone's progress. The reason why I started the grid in variegated colours was lack of inspiration, but a desire to start. I figured I'd do the worst part now and the beautiful threads would get me inspired soon enough. Worked for me, and apparantly I'm not the only one. Inspiration needs to get kick started somehow.

It's Sunday morning where I live! Started properly yesterday, though I prepared the fabric earlier, too excited to wait! It's a left over piece of off white evenweave and the squares are 25x25, so actual inchies. I've started off by chain stichting the outlines with variegated thread. I've had them in my stash for ages but barely ever used them.

I'm going to start today! When working on little projects I always make a stash bag from a ziplock freezer bag. I just put the fabric (I don't use a hoop or frame for this type of things) and the threads I'm using together, so I can easily take it on the go. 

I haven't picked the fabric yet, but I believe I have a small leftover piece of brown linen. I'm thinking of squares 3x3 cm, slightly larger than 1 inch. That would make it 9x24 cm. I'll be turning 24 this July, so I'm leaving the last square blank as a symbol of the blank future. (And a good motivation to actually finish up before my birthday :-) ) The blank future is all the more fitting as my boyfriend will be moving in late this summer.

I'm in!!  Grin

I haven't been too motivated for embroidery lately, I've been behind my sewing machine way too much. But I should be able to keep up the motivation for something as small and great as this one, especially as it's a SAL.
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sweet tomato soup Chinese take away style on: May 20, 2014 09:19:22 AM
When I asked my family for suggestions for Christmas dinner years ago, they asked for Asian food - but cheap Chinese take away style. (don't ask me why....) This soup stuck around since everybody loves it and It's super easy to make. I actually just whipped up a 4 liter batch the other day. It can be made more spicy by using a different type of sambal. I used a very hot sambal bajak.

Ingredients for 2 liter

2 stock cubes, vegetable or chicken

1 onion, chopped

2 or 3 garlic cloves

1 kg tomatoes

6 tablespoons sugar

4 tablespoons sweet soy sauce (kecap manis)

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 teaspoon sambal ulek

1 teaspoon lemongrass powder

1 teaspoon ginger powder

2 tablespoons cornflour

 

Instructions

Boil 1 liter of water and add the stock cubes, garlic and onion. Add tomatoes and boil again.

Mix together all of the remaining ingredients except the cornflour and add. Stir in, then puree the soup using a blender. In a seperate bowl, mix the cornflour with one or two spoons of soup and add.

This is the basic recipe. You can now add bean sprouts, chicken, meat balls, shrimp, etc for variety. For a truly home made soup you can even make fresh chicken stock. I haven't tried that yet, but it will be good!

I have been pretty ill this month, so I went off the radar for a while, but it's almost worth it when you get to see a month's worth of beautiful quilts all at once  Cheesy I can't really go and comment on each one individually, but I especially loved the colour combination on the patriotic baby quilt. I really love the colour combination of grey, bright red and blue. I've been wanting to use that combination for something, one day. And the fact that it's going to charity of course makes the quilt even more lovely.

I love your blanket!

In fact, I love it so much that I've just been going through my stash to see if i have enough white left over to start it today .... (answer is yes!   Grin )
