1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Gluten free/soy free naan anyone??! on: September 29, 2010 12:50:31 PM
This is a super, super late reply, but...

I make naan using this recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day

Here's a post from their blog giving a method for making naan.

I've had great luck with the breads from this book.  Even my husband (who is not gluten-intolerant and eats wheat breads on a regular basis) happily eats the bread from these recipes.

I love it!  Love the Mario on your website, too.

Husband loves it too - I just showed him and he said "Maybe I should learn how to crochet to make a Mario and Luigi for you."  (I knit, but don't crochet.)  You've inspired him!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: graduation....help please! on: April 11, 2009 03:08:55 PM
I went out of state to college, but I did receive a few things from a friend who was a year ahead of me and had stayed in state/at home, like your sister will.  She included the things she carried with her and used every day on campus, things like a mini pencil sharpener and mini size stapler (with box of staples).  I think there may have been other things too, like a small pack of paper clips and small scissors.  I wish I could remember what else, but I hope that helps.  I would try to think of the things you might need in class or while studying that an on-campus student could run back to their dorm to get if they forgot.  Or if she'll be driving, maybe something that will help her keep her car organized for toting stuff around?  Or a nice insulated bag for snacks?  You can't study without snacks!

Thanks everyone!

And smittenheart, yes, it is on flour sack towels.  I ordered them from Herrschners because I couldn't find them anywhere around here.  I felt like my Grandma.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Onesies for Lily on: September 01, 2008 05:39:59 PM
So, friends are having a baby in a few months that they are naming Lily.  Here are a few onesies I made for her: Lily of the Valley, Water Lily, Tiger Lily, and a Cubs logo, for the dad.

I was too impatient to post, so the Tiger lily and Cubs onesies both still have stabilizer on the back of them, and the Cubs one is still sopping wet from washing out the tracing marker.  Oh, and I've only embroidered two tea towels before this, so I'm still a beginner!

I used back stitch, stem stitch, satin stitch (padded), split stitch, pistil stitch, french knots, threaded back stitch.  I also learned that t-shirt stabilizer doesn't like it when you use all 6 strands, but does okay with 3 or 2.  I got the lily patterns from a book of embroidered flower patterns, but after the Lily of the Valley, I just used them as outlines instead of following the complete stitch instructions.

So, since I never have enough time to knit, I decided that meant I had spare time to pick up a new hobby - embroidery.  Really, I needed another hobby.  Anyway, here are my first two projects.  Nothing too tough, mostly split stitch, stem stitch, and backstitch.  I have a sushi towel in the works too, and am posting a series of onesies in the other, non-Sublime, completed projects board.

Thanks for the suggestions for lily drawings!  Some of those I had found, but those sketches at the ingalls site was new to me.  I actually found a book at Michael's and just bought it.  I didn't want to spend the money but it was the "Big Embroidery Book of Flowers" or something and had 3 different lilies (tiger, lily of the valley, and water lily) in it, plus like 30 more flowers and a whole stitch dictionary (which I don't have anyway, since this is a new hobby for me) so I figured it would be worth it in the long run.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Lily Embroidery Patterns? on: August 03, 2008 09:49:31 AM
I am having a hard time finding embroidery patterns for lilies.  Can anyone help or have suggestions on where to look?  I've tried google images, but I don't like what I've found (too detailed when made onesie-size).

I want to make a set of onesies for friends about to have a baby they're naming Lily.  I'm looking for calla lily, tiger (or stargazer) lily, water lily, and lily of the valley patterns.

Thanks for your help!
