21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2014 Winter Holiday Crafting on: November 22, 2014 07:56:00 AM
Good to see everyone else is making progress!

Things have been made a bit easier for me as my side of the family has decided not to do gifts this year. My mum's moving house over the holidays and we're only going to have a quick family meal together in between moving. I'll probably give her Christmas gifts (a homemade scarf and maybe a crocheted blanket in the colour scheme of her new house) for her birthday in February.

My boyfriend's birthday is coming up in 10 days and I still haven't decided on what to make him. I did however finish the Christmas ornament and card I'm going to give him.

This really is an amazing set. So many hours must have went into this.

When I saw the first picture, I thought you'd printed it or something, but they are actually all really really tiny stitches  Shocked I love how accurate all the blocks are. And the execution is just as close to perfection as someone can possibly get. You must have made the receipient really, really happy and that's probably an understatement.

That's a long post, but lots of useful information! I have never ever thought about freezing bread dough, but it's a great idea. We really like homemade pizza, but we only make it on days off because the dough is such a hassle. But if you can freeze the dough, you take it out in the morning before work, then you only have to roll it out and decorate it (what's the correct English word? Not a native speaker) when you get home, then pop it in the oven for 20 minutes and you have fresh pizza. This is actually a great thing to know!

That's going to be some hard work, all home made gifts with such a huge family!! I hope they appreciate the hard work.

MareMare, that sounds like a dream job! Now you just have to make sure you're not going to spend everything you earn there  Wink

I love the Spiderman quilt and it looks like the lucky owner does, too!

I haven't been doing any crafting recently, because I'm busy organising all of my stuff. I have a special cupboard for it now and it's really amazing what you come across. I knew I had a lot of crafting supplies, but I honestly never really knew I had so much. I've started to give away certain things as well, if I'm never going to use it then I'd rather make someone else happy with it. How have you all organised your supplies?

Wow, really impressive! So much work must have gone into finding the right scraps of fabric, button and lace, and then the hand embroidery ...  but it's absolutely worth it, it's really gorgeous. This piece will be treasured for many years to come.

Thanks for the suggestions! I forgot to check back, but I ended up making this soup: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2536640/courgette-and-tomato-soup

It turned out bright orange and my bf thought it was pumpkin soup at first. But I'll save your ideas for the next time Smiley

As it's getting colder every day now I'm looking out for some winter recipes. Traditionally we eat a lot of potatoes and vegetables mashed together in here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stamppot). While most people limit themselves to kale, sauerkraut and carrots, you can obviously just mash any kind of veggies and potatoes together and I'm planning on experimenting a lot this winter.

Also, something completely different, but are there any magic tricks to help your s/o stick to the meal plan? My bf isn't that organised so whenever I can, I get his breakfast and his food for work ready (from the freezer obviously, not cooking fresh meals in the mornings! ) but when I don't, he just forgets.

It's not like I'm trying to force him to comply to the meal plan, it was his idea originally because he wanted to save up some money. It's not that he hates the food because he specifically asks for certain things. Today he left at 7am and isn't getting back until 12 at night. I'm fairly sure he didn't eat any breakfast. He definitely didn't take lunch or his prepared dinner and fruit from the fridge (that I put there the other night).  We have seperate bank accounts, so technically it's not my problem if he eats at Subway all the time, but it was his plan in the first place ...

Wow, those hexies, waggonswest! I'm not going to do them ever either! Or, I'll try to  Tongue

I love the flannel quilt as well, very fit for autumn. And more time to quilt at least is one good thing about not having a job...

Kookaloo_Starr, what kind of block are you using in your jeans quilt? I'm working on a log cabin jeans quilt.

I finally made the egg muffin things today. I figured as I was using an antistick muffin tin, I wouldn't need to add any butter. I was wrong.  Grin  But they tasted well. I made just six, so we can see how this works for breakfast.

I went to the local market this Saturday and bought lots of vegetables. 4 zucchini's, 2 kgs of tomatoes, mushrooms, lettuce, cucumber & bean sprouts. I've turned 1 kg of tomatoes and half of the bean sprouts into 2,5 liter of tomato soup, and we've almost finished it already. 1 zucchini and half of the mushrooms are in today's lasagne.

Does anyone know any original recipes for zucchini? (with as few as possible unusual ingredients, we are on a budget) I buy it all the time because it's so versatile (soup, any kind of pasta sauce or stir fry) and so cheap - 4 large ones for 1,50 E - but I'm ready to try something new.
