I love it! You did a really amazing job - and kudos to you for finishing your first quilt! I'm still working up the guts to start one Smiley

Where did you find the fabric? The Very Hungry Caterpillar was one of my favorite books when I was little.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Edible Holiday Goodies 2009 on: October 03, 2009 04:15:44 PM
I love edible gifts, so I am very excited to follow this thread. I'd love to see ideas for cakes/pies in jars and fancy brownie recipes (s'mores brownies, etc.).

And just so I'm contributing, I'll share my favorite pepperminty brownie recipe! (Or maybe I should say "recipe" LOL)

Ingredients needed:
1 box brownie mix, plus egg/oil/water, etc. (whatever is needed to make the brownies -- and if you have a great scratch recipe, feel free to use that instead!)
1 bag mini Peppermint Patties

Preheat oven as directed on box.
Mix brownie batter and pour into greased brownie pan.
Bake brownies as directed, but pull them out of the oven about 5 minutes before they're supposed to be done.
Carefully cover the top of the brownies with unwrapped peppermint patties. (For an 8x8" pan, I usually use about 16-25 patties, depending on how well I can squish them in.)
Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until patties are slightly melted and brownies appear done.
Gently swirl the melted patties to make an interesting design, or enough that the entire surface of the brownies is covered in chocolaty, melty goodness.
Enjoy when cooled, or you'll have a gooey (yet still totally delicious!) mess on your hands!

I always have the best of intentions when it comes to making Christmas/holiday cards, but my ideas always fall through and I end up buying some cheesy cards at Target to send out.

A few years ago I wanted to cut some felt into the word "Navidad" so I could write "Fleece Navidad!" on the inside, but it didn't work out quite how I wanted.

These are too cute!  If I were more motivated (that is, at all motivated whatsoever!), I would sew up some controllers and have a Nintendo tree for Christmas!

In my extended family, each family buys a gift for the little kids who are not yet in school.  The school age kids (kindergarten through high school) draw names and can spend no more than $20.  We used to have a grown-ups swap but it got too complicated, so we discontinued that a few years ago (just when I was going to "graduate" to the grown-ups swap!)  This past year, though, we started doing a white elephant swap with a price cap of $15, participation completely optional.  It went over really well, even with the box of open, stale, half-eaten taco shells that one of my cousins and his then-fiancee brought for the swap... and even then, that's part of the fun of a white elephant!  (I heard a rumor that my cousin and his now-wife got the taco shells back as a wedding present last month!)

My boyfriend's extended family used to go ALL OUT for Christmas, but last year, they finally instituted a gift-exchange to make it a bit more economical.  I'll buy a gift for him, his mom, and his sister, as well as the person whose name I chose, and that's it.  Cuts back a bit on the craziness, or so I hope!

Oh, I wish your classes weren't on Mondays!  I'm totally interested in learning more about fabrics and sewing and different techniques, but Mondays don't work for me.

Is there a schedule online, or will you updated this thread with additional classes?

Ooh, I would love to meet some local craftsters!  I'm in a craft-funk and could use some motivation... and what better way to get motivated than to meet other craftsters?

Ohhhh man, that looks and sounds amazing!  If you share the recipe, I'll definitely have to think of an excuse to make it!

I don't know how you could fill the jars, but where did you get them?!
