1  Re: Tea Towel Tour Gallery - As seen on TTTV in The Swap Gallery by mego on: September 14, 2009 02:06:49 PM
Oh my goodness sixblueirises!  I'm the last to receive that towel... and already the bar is set high!  Great job!!!

OK -- Here's mamaphunk's towel!

Here's a view of both her words & my addition.

Mamaphunk just redid her kitchen to look like it's from an anthropologie catalog with lots of bright colors... so that's the theme for this towel!

I was going to do a nice tulip design I found on Hoop Love, but it was a pain to transfer via the window method.  Luckily, I found this design by Andrea Zuill (might as well rename this tour for her with all of her designs appearing everythwere!)  I didn't do the whole piece, it extends another two/three inches to the top with more blossoms. 

I've written more on my blog about my experience so far in TTT5, I don't want to take up anymore space here in the gallery!

2  Hey Hottie, Got Hot-Tea? in Needlework: Completed Projects by mego on: August 15, 2009 04:25:35 PM
Flickr's recent weird downtime for groups & sets isn't going to allow me to link to the transfers I used, but I put a link to what I think is the right page in my most recent blog post ( http://www.whatmegmakes.com/?p=798 ) about these projects -- because I know you'll ask!

It only took me a few hours to finish Ms. Hottie, she's my first embroidery project in years!  She's about 7 inches tall on a tea towel.

Here's a photo of her in progress...

& I loved the series so much I've started another tea towel!

Head over to my blog for larger photos, just click on them in the post for the larger versions.

3  Red Onion Guacamole *SUPERBOWL FAVORITE* in Recipes and Cooking Tips by mego on: January 22, 2009 03:44:41 PM
Every year my family has old friends over for the superbowl, and every year someone makes guacamole loaded with red onion!  My fiancee has me make this whenever he picks up avocados at the market.

The recipe is here:

4  Cream of Leftover Chicken and Rice Soup in Recipes and Cooking Tips by mego on: January 14, 2009 05:04:15 PM
I love any creamy soup with corn!  I made this soup when it first started getting cold, blogged about it, but totally forgot to post it over here! 

It's really simple!  The base recipe is here along with my post about it.  You can keep the same basic ratio and increase and decrease the amounts to how much of each stuff you want. 

This soup has become a favorite with my family.  My grandma has invited me over to her house to make it, my mom has invited me home to make it for me... it's total family comfort food.  It's the kind of soup you sit around the table and sip while sharing stories of the past and present. 

I hope you enjoy it too!

5  Reusable Tea Bags! in Completed Projects by mego on: January 07, 2009 03:00:37 PM
I made these because my fiancee has a thing for Thai Milk Tea, but not for the tea that gets through the infuser and nylon bags.  I made these as a solution!  I blogged about them in more detail here: http://whatmegmakes.com/?p=121
