11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Food that freezes well, Homemade microwave dinners. on: February 11, 2008 09:35:51 AM
Resurrecting this thread:

I was SO about to suggest lentils, even before I saw your note about him wanting to eat more lentils. Lentil soup always freezes well, esp. if pureed or semi-pureed; I use old yogurt quart containers, with some plastic wrap on top of the soup for extra protection from freezer burn. Some of my favorite recipes:
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Moroccan-Lentil-Soup/Detail.aspx - beans add filling
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Vegan-Red-Lentil-Soup/Detail.aspx - superb
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Lentil-and-Sausage-Soup/Detail.aspx - a little meaty

Hope this helps!
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: preventing tarnish on: January 28, 2008 07:46:32 AM
On a similar note, can anyone tell me how to protect a gemstone when you're polishing the silver around it? I have a large amber pendant that I don't wear b/c the silver band is super tarnished, and since it seems like a "soft" stone, I don't want to do the baking soda trick or straight up silver polish without protecting the stone. Is it just a matter of carefully covering the stone with masking tape or something like that?

I like the tips about charcoal, chalk, etc. Any success with those, crafters?

That's very good! It's a pretty color, and lacks the usual obvious mistakes of a first scarf.

It's so hard to get stockinette to lie flat -- how did you stop the curling? Blocking?

Thanks, crafters! I was excited to post it because only nutters like us know how long this stuff takes. Isolde, it took a few hours in the evening, a few nights a week, for three months -- a LOT of hours. It's satisfying, though, to see it come to life slowly.

Wow, bananabanana, where do you live? DMC is usually between 25 and 35 cents here; maybe we should send you some!

Hey there needlers,

I'm a knitter, typically, but my sister has been begging me for a Precious Moments cross-stitch for ages. I personally am not a fan, but I can see how the teardrop-eyed children appeal, and hey, it's been years since I started saying, "Someday..."

So three months, about $40 in supplies, and a lot of swearing later:

Sorry about the flash...

These are too fabulous. I love the chart, and I'm glad your hubby likes them!

Nothing! :-(  I'm not sure if my family doesn't really believe that it's a good hobby or what, but every year I ask for a gift certificate to Webs and every year no luck. Sadness.

I really liked Anthony's fingerless mitts -- dark dark grey with two cables, I think, up to the fingers.

Off to find pic, if possible...

This is gorgeous! I have wanted to do this sweater for a while, and perhaps now I'll get up the guts to try. The color is perfect on you.

Did you keep the bobbles as is, or make them smaller? A lot of people modified them from 5 st to 3 st, but I like yours!

What a scheisskopf he is...

Keep this fabulous scarf for yourself! Rock it as you wish.

If you can't bear to see it, give it to charity. Bad thing turns into good karma!
