3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Later Gator Mittens on: February 14, 2005 02:43:58 PM
Here they are:

This is my first project from SnBN, after I used SnB to learn to knit on Boxing Day (26 dec).

The large one is part of a set for my girlfriend (who really digs on the animal theme) and the little set are for my namesake, Meghan, who is 2 in a couple weeks (can you believe my friend called his baby after me??!!!! how freaking cool is that???!!!  Wink  )
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / present for best friend after 1 year in AA on: February 06, 2005 06:26:55 PM
woot woot!  for my best friend!  she's almost at the end of her first year in recovery (alcohol) and I am SOOOO proud of how fabulous she is!

so - what do you think I should give her??  she loves everything I make, but I want to make something just for her.  etching cream is expensive where I live, so making drinking glasses is maybe out of the question....

6  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Trans-Tasman swap on: October 24, 2004 01:16:30 PM
I'm organising (or in the early throes of!) a swap for NZers in time for Xmas, and since when I did the last one there was some interest from Australians I'm thinking about making it between our two fair nations.

Is anyone interested?

(there is a chance that there will be MORE Australians than NZers, so some people might end up swapping within Aus, fyi)

There's a thread in the New Swaps board, or you can PM me.
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / New Zealand swap in time for Christmas!!!! (Australians, you interested too?) on: October 21, 2004 01:55:59 PM
Any NZers out there - how about a swap?

Last time we had one there was interest from some Australians - is anyone interested in a trans-tasman (or South Pacific, in case there is anyone in the Pacific Islands interested) swap?

C'mon Kiwi!
8  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / screen printing supplies on: October 12, 2004 01:40:22 PM

Does anyone in NZ know where to get photo emulsion, etc?  And how much I can expect to pay?  help!
9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan icecream! on: June 30, 2004 01:32:17 AM
I've been making vegan icecream for a little while.  I bought an icecream maker second hand and had a little trial and error before I struck gold. 

This recipe is basic, and then I list some tom foolery for making it different.  I like this one because a) it doesn't call for maple syrup (which I can't afford to buy in NZ, but if you want you can sub it for the sugar), and b) you don't have to heat the mixture and then wait for it to cool before you freeze it like in most vegan recipes. 

Anyway, it's really really really good, and here it is:

1 block silken tofu (Mori-Nu or whatever)
3 tbl veg oil
3 tbl 'milk (soy, nut, oat, rice, whatever)
1/4 c castor sugar  (this is better than regular sugar because the granules are finer, so the ice cream doesn't get icy grit stuff in it)

Put all in a blender and then add the following:

for Peppermint Chip
1 tsp peppermint essence
Blend, then stir through 1/2 c chocolate chips before freezing according to your ice cream machine's instructions

for Vanilla
1 tbl vanilla essence

for Peanut Chocolate Chip
3 tbl peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
Blend, then stir through 1/2 c chocolate chips before freezing according to your ice cream machine's instructions
Stir through 3-4 tbl chopped roasted peanuts too if you like

Other things that might be added:
nut butter
spices (e.g. cinnamon, cardamon)
other fruit essences (e.g. orange, lemon)
candied fruit peel

And at the end (when it comes out of the machine) you might like to swirl through:
chocolate sauce
caramel sauce
fruit puree

Anyway, I hope this helps any vegans who are homemade icecream deficient.  Let me know if it hits the spot.
10  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Hamiltopia on: June 21, 2004 04:53:21 PM
I'm moving to hamilton (which I lovingly refer to as Hamiltopia) for the rest of the year. 

Is anybody out there from there? 

Do you have any advice?  Where are the good yarn/fabric/craft stores?  Do you think I could get together a stitch n bitch?

ah, the endless questions.
