1  Re: 'Shipping Swap: Two hearts made one! Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Inselaeffchen on: April 28, 2017 04:01:31 AM
Ooohhh!!! I received from Thimbles71 today!! Such a great package, and she covered nearly all of my ships!!

First all the goodies!!


A small pouch with "Sterek" (Teen Wolf) ship.. Derek in Wolf form


A "Sterek" notebook


A smaller pouch with "Stucky" (Steve & Bucky - Captain America)


Absolutely cute magnets with "Thilbo" (Thorin & Bilbo - The Hobbit), "Cherik" (Charles & Erik - X-men), ETA: on second thought...  Of course it's NOT Cherik... It IS Jaime & Brienne from GOT!!  (Thimbles71, could you pls confirm I got this right now?!?)



Sam & Claire (Outlander) and I *think* "Gendrya" (Gendry & Arya - Game of Thrones) - can you please confirm, Thimbles71?


Thimbles actually left only 1 ship off my list ("Cherik" - X-men).

Wow! Thank you so much, I love them all!!!

Oh, and the card is so great, and the chocolates absolutely YUMMY!!!

Aaah, so glad Nessie helped with the whole job search/interview issue! And Elf Fantasy Fair sounds VERY interesting!!

Yesterday Hermione had a quick trip into town to pick up some fudge for roler and then to go to an info session at the University of Edinburgh (Brexit stuff).

There are lots of building works at the Uni, hubby doesn't even know for certain what that new glass building in the middle is. For all he knows it could be a pedestrian entrance to a car park! And he works for the Uni!

Prompt: April - Quote #2 (overcoming challenges)
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: Engineering
Project Name:"Senf Eier" (Eggs in Mustard Sauce)
Project Link:N/a
Brief Description: "Obstacles do not block the path, they ARE the path" Ok, my girls dyed 26 (!!!) hardboiled eggs for Easter. What do you do with 26 (!!!!) hardboiled eggs apart from 2 batches of egg mayo? And specially when your "go to" dish of "Gruene Sosse" (Green Sauce, a famous (?) Dish from Frankfurt) is off the menu due to not all the herbs easily obtainable in the UK and I forgot to plant the seeds in time (I've yet to plant those darn things!). So... I had to try something that I've not cooked at all but liked as a child. And given my girls don't usually like mustard it was a hit and miss how it would go down...

Eggs in Mustard Sauce
Servings
4

Ingredients
80g butter
4 tbsp flour
400ml milk
300ml vegetable broth
3 tbsp medium mustard
salt and peppper
sugar
lemon juice
2 egg yolks
8 hard boiled eggs

Directions
Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the flour and whisk until absorbed. Add liquids and whisk until smooth. Simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes. Make sure to stir to prevent burning.

Season sauce with mustard, salt, pepper, lemon juice and 2 pinches of sugar to taste. Take a bit of the sauce and mix in a separate tub with the egg yolks then add back to the pan. Take the pan of the heat.

Serve over the hard boiled eggs (I cut them in half for adults and into six "wedges" for the girls) and either boiled or mashed potatoes.

Hermione had some nice time at the Con yesterday...
Merchandise and Doctor Who.

Day 2 of the Con now, and she is having a wee wait until my girls come around in the afternoon and I'll take them all for a wonder...

6  Hobbit Hole Bag in CHALLENGE 118 ENTRIES by Inselaeffchen on: April 07, 2017 03:18:08 PM
I was matched up with Audania1 for the Middle Earth Swap. I'd seen a couple of Hobbit Hole Bags on her Pinterest, and when I came across this pattern on Ravelry I thought I adjust the pattern from pillow to bag.

The only "adjustments" to a pattern for me in the past was adding some rows and that was it, so trying this bag was a bit of a step up for me. But I liked how it came out, and I think Audania1 likes it as well. Smiley

Prompt:  March - A Handmaid's Tale
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Kiddo#1 T-shirt for Audania1
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: In the Middle Earth Swap Audania1 and I agreed to send some items for our kids. She told me that her older daughter loved the female characters in Lord of The Rings, so I decided to make some vinyl cut for a T-shirt for her. In my eyes Arwen is one of the strongest female characters in LoTR and I liked the quote.

Apti had a wee overnight stay at the sorting office but I picked him up this morning.

And he came home with LOADS of souvenirs!!!

Loving the bookmark and the keyrings, and that little purse (it's those 2 shells!! Did you make that yourself, Mountains &Clouds? ).

Oh, and there is one keyring that has a thermometer and a compass on it, too!

The two flower hair clips definitely come in handy for my girls!!

Mountains&Clouds and i agreed to do digital photo albums, and we both are still working on them.  Smiley

Gorgeous patches, great work from everyone.

I received Wulf's patch today, a beautifully worked 3D effect jellyfish. And Wulf, don't worry about the pink - it works well in that jellyfish!





I'm hoping to get a start on my patches this weekend - RL was having a field day with throwing things at me the last couple of weeks...
