I've got things kind of organized on paper, but it will almost certainly be next Friday before I start actually crafting for this swap.  I don't intend to send on the actual send-out date, but it will probably be close because I want to do some spoiling.

Gah.  I just had a plan semi-thwarted by poor supply at Michael's.  However, I scored big time at the thrift store (for so many current and future projects too)!!  May others who require it have the same good thrift store luck!

I am totally disappointed in some of my crafting.  Not just for this swap - just crafting in general - the shrink plastic at DeSerres sucks - it is Grafix brand and it shrinks unevenly, doesn't shrink flat without being held down, and is more fragile than the other brands I have tried.  Also, one of my snowflake cutting dies broke - virtually brand new and it broke :C

Just a bad, cruddy crafting day :C

At least I got some blueberry banana muffins and sweet potato bread made.

Yum, sweet potato bread.  That sounds wonderful.  Want to share the recipe?  ( Oh, and I'm very sorry you've had a crummy crafting day).

No problem - it is one of my favourite bread recipes.  It can be sweet with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, or more spicy by adding paprika, or some kind of chili powder/hot pepper powder.


Savoury Sweet Potato Bread
1 cup [extra large: 1 1/3 cups] mashed, canned sweet potatoes or yams (drained, reserve liquid)
1/2 cup [extra large: 3/4 cup] reserved liquid from sweet potatoes or yams
2 tbsp [extra large: 3 tbsp] vegetable oil, margarine or butter
3/4 tsp [extra large: 1 tsp] salt
1 tbsp [extra large: 2 tbsp] sugar
3 cups [extra large: 4 cups] white flour(*)
1/4 tsp [extra large: 1/2 tsp] pepper, nutmeg or dried chili peppers
1 1/4 tsp [extra large: 1 1/2 tsp] bread-machine or instant yeast

(* In Canada use all-purpose or bread flour; in the United States use bread flour)
1. Add all ingredients to machine according to manufacturer's directions. Select basic white cycle. VARIATION: Clover Leaf Rolls Select dough cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough to lightly floured surface, cover, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut dough into 12 or 16 pieces; shape each into a smooth ball and place in greased muffin tins. Cover with clean tea towel and let rise in warm place for about 30 minutes or until double in size. Bake at 375 deg F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove rolls from pans and serve warm or leave to cool on racks.

Notes:  I did not use the amounts for the xtra large loaf, I have a 2 lb horizontal bread machine, and the first set of ingredients made a loaf that rose very nicely above the pan.  I added both black pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon to the loaf.  It gave a very subtle flavour.  I may add more pepper and nutmeg when making it in the future for stew or a casserole.  I also made it with the egg - the texture was very nice and fluffy.  Would make excellent rolls for a traditional dinner like at Thanksgiving, with a nice glossy glaze.  Also, I did not use canned sweet potatoes, I used roasted mashed, so used water for the liquid.  For a softer, more tender loaf, I used 1 egg, beaten, and enough liquid to make up to the required amount of liquid.  You could use milk too, and tbsp or two of gluten powder for more rise.

the sweet version would make a decent bread pudding, and either would make for a neat stuffing too.

i'm about halfway through 2 mediums for TrickyMcVomit, and i think she's really going to like them!

i'm pretty impressed with myself for trying new crafts this round.  swapping always makes me expand my crafty skills.

Swapping makes me try new stuff too, but I''m pretty nervous this round. I have this AWESOME idea in my head that I am really just hoping that I can pull off. If I do, I think my partner will be pretty pleased.

Ditto and ditto!.! hahaha

Jaders, I am still waiting for some stuff to get shipped and a day off to really sit down and get crackalackin'!

and I'm also going to try to bring my awesome idea to life, lets hope it translates well  Cheesy

Still only have one medium made, have ideas for other things but nothing that is definite.  Not too sure yet, still thinking.
