22  Re: Necklace Swap 2017 GALLERY (Sendouts Aug. 14) in The Swap Gallery by Abbeeroad on: August 15, 2017 09:49:57 AM
Awesome stuff in the gallery so far! I love it all!

I received from Artmomto5 yesterday, but I was in the city all day and night with sheepBlue who was visiting! I just put her on a plane home, so here I am to post and show off my AMAZING necklace!



Isn't it beautiful? Here's a close up of the focal piece:



sheepBlue was here when I opened the package this morning and we were both ooo-ing and ahh-ing over it! Thank you so much, Artmomto5!

The Iron Chef Hogwarts July Challenge is now CLOSED. Thanks to Mistress Jennie, FiberAlchemist, and noodle-bug for your rhubarb entries! In addition to earning house points for your recipes (woohoo!), each of you have been entered into the Iron Chef Giveaway at semester's end. Meanwhile, my rhubarb is still sitting in my fridge!  Embarrassed

And that brings me to...The secret ingredient for August is....

TEA!


Brine your chicken in a Sweet Tea Marinade
 before grilling, cook outside the box with this ochazuke recipe, or get sweet with a milk tea flan with boba for dessert!

Love the sandwich wrap, Jennie - how does it work for keeping the sandwich fresh? I wasn't impressed with the reusable baggies I purchased, might have to give those a try, especially now that there's an awesome tute to walk me through it!

I have a few projects to turn in, though I still need to get going on Quidditch!

Challenge: Headmistress Challenge: Harry Potter
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Harry Potter Faux Stained Glass
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I made this for Inselaeffchen in the "I want to Live in the Burrow" Swap. She had this image pinned and I was instantly inspired to try my hand at faux stained glass. Since this project was going across the Atlantic, however, I used a round piece of plexi glass instead of actual glass. I still wrapped it securely before sending in lots of bubble wrap...I was so worried it would get scratched en route. The black lines were done with Allure metallic dimensional adhesive paint and the yellow, gray and clear sections were done with either a mod podge glass tint, mod podge mixed with acrylic, or just plain old mod podge. I used a toothbrush to give the clear sections some texture. I think this project is both inspired by HP himself and pretty remarkable by my standards. Smiley
Project Pictures:





Challenge: House Pride
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tie-dye Gryffindor Crest Tee
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for Inselaeffchen's daughter, a fellow Gryffindor, I tie-dyed a t-shirt in Gryffindor colors and used freezer paper stencil and paint to mark it with the Gryffindor crest. Roar Gryffindor!
Project Picture:



Challenge: House Unity
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tie-dye Hufflepuff Crest Tee
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for Inselaeffchen's other daughter, a proud Hufflepuff, I tie-dyed a t-shirt in Hufflepuff colors and used freezer paper stencil and paint to mark it with the Hufflepuff crest. Puff Pride!
Project Picture:



**Note to our headmistresses** I think I'm good to post one house pride AND one house unity per semester, but please let me know if I misread page 1 and I'll reassign one of my projects. THANK YOU!! Smiley

Awesome crochet goodies - perfect for Jennie!

Love the mobile! It has a rustic look to it that I really like.

AND...I received an AWESOME package from Inselaeffchen!!

First off are FOUR pillow covers:



One for each house. They are perfect and I love the crest, Inselaeffchen! My son might steal the Gryffindor one from me. Smiley

Here's a close up:



Then, she also sent me FOUR onesies!



Love these two:



I'm expecting twin girls in Nov/Dec and I haven't purchased a single thing for them yet, so these are perfect!

And she also made my son a shirt:



Thank you so much Inselaeffchen! Our whole family loves this package. Cheesy

I still have time for the anniversary challenges right?!?!?! AH! (I can change my headers if needed!)

Challenge: Anniversary Challenge - 2013 - Kitchen Duty
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Crock Pot Chicken Gyros
Project Page Link: http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2013/03/slow-cooker-chicken-gyros.html
Brief Description: I'm always looking for a way to not heat up my kitchen in the summer. This crock pot chicken gryo recipe seemed perfect! I put all the ingredients in the crock pot at lunch time then whipped up the Tzatziki when I got home from work. We were eating dinner in no time. While I loved this recipe, Mr. Road was not a fan, so I'm afraid it was relegated to the "tweak/revise" pile as far as recipes go.
Project Picture:



Challenge: Anniversary Challenge - 2014 Sign the Parchment
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Heart Tie-Dye Tee
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Tie-dye has somehow ended up my signature craft. I'm not sure how that happened, lol, but I do love it, so I'll go with it. This one I made for a friend's daughter. It features a heart pattern and was my favorite out of my most recent batch.
Project Picture:



Challenge: Anniversary Challenge - 2015 Celebrate Library
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Birthday Tie-Dyes
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: My friend's twins just turned 4! It feels like they were babies just yesterday. To celebrate their special day, I made them each tie-dye t-shirts. I even used the shirts to wrap their presents!
Book Recommendation: I'm currently reading the Brilliance Trilogy by Marcus Sakey. It is a great series that reminds us to celebrate what makes us human, what makes us the same, and what makes us different.

Excellent lentil recipes all!! Even those that will not be made again, lol.

Sorry for the delay in posting the next Iron Chef Hogwarts Challenge. The holiday weekend got away from me!

The LENTIL Iron Chef Hogwarts challenge is now CLOSED. Thanks to all those who entered! Your names have been added to the end of term drawing for an Iron Chef Prize (in addition to the house points you've earned!).

AND...the secret ingredient for July is...


RHUBARB!

28  Re: Prayer Flag Swap Round SO - 6/10 in The Swap Gallery by Abbeeroad on: June 16, 2017 08:33:31 AM
Lovely flag from curiousfae!!  And I received a beautiful one from her as well!



She chose my word "grow" to depict my growing family. I'm expecting twins (early ultrasound says two girls, but we'll see) this fall, so her sweet flag is perfect! I love the way she did the flower and the lacy fringe on the bottom.

AND I received from quaggy as well...she also chose "Grow"! Cheesy



Totally different feel, but I love them both! She used upholstery scraps to create the scene, which gives it an awesome earthy feel. The flowers represent my (to be) three children.  Grin I love that quaggy rocks the beaded fringe.

And here's the one I made for myself. I completed it a couple days ago, but wasn't sure if it was really "done." It still seems like it's missing something, but I haven't added to it for a couple days, so I'm calling it finished.

I used a more abstract representation of pregnancy and also depicted three little ones. They are the only three faces I had left from a batch sheepBlue sent me a while ago, so there's no significance to color/size, except the larger one is obviously my older (now 8!) son.



Thanks for a lovely round, ladies!

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: "Wonder" Flag
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for quaggy in the recent prayer flag swap, I made this flag based on the outdoors and camping. I used glow puff paint to accentuate some of the elements in the sky so that when you turn out the lights, a hidden element of this flag emerges...glowing stars!

Class: Potions
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: "Create" Prayer Flag
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for Averia in the Prayer Flag Swap, this flag features a blue jay feather, mod podged to the fabric and then stitched to accentuate. Blue jay feathers can be tough to find, especially in good condition! I plucked this one up as soon as I stumbled across it, knowing that it was too good a treasure to pass up.

Thank you, Jennie!! With that being said, let's kick off the Midsummer Session of Iron Chef Hogwarts!

The secret ingredient for June is...


LENTILS!

Take this marinated lentil salad to your next picnic, or try out these vegan lentil burgers at your next cookout, maybe even surprise your coworkers with a batch of fudgy black lentil brownies.

Happy brewing all....and remember to check out the kitchens for updates and info!
