I claim rockingbearranch for Hilma Klint

Status: 3 claim, 0 sent, 0 received

I live in Florida and my fav color is mint aqua.  I'm pretty open but I prefer not to receive: political, explicit nudity/pinups or blood/gore.   Christian religious themes are fine.  Artistic nudity is fine. My favorite styles of art are paintings & drawings, but do feel free to do other styles.  Thank you for claiming me!     Cheesy

Special mediums I think it would be fun to have a card covered in glitter or an all sequin card etc.   Maybe combine with a theme from below or do something random or abstract in glitter etc.   Smiley

gold leafing or silver leafing

My themes are:

draw your desk
blind contour drawing
blackout/found poetry
Birds -  I really like songbirds, chickens (girls) and crow & ravens
art journal page (inspiration from google: https://goo.gl/s5fUsO )
label from a fictional wine/beer/coffee/tea company
hand drawn maps or building layouts (fictional, treasure, your fav store, your apartment floor plan etc)
Stained Glass
Christmas lights / fairy lights (decorating something, not just the lights please)
plein air
watercolor figure paintings/studies
Eggs (still in the shell) -- birds, dragons, etc.
Faberge egg
botanical illustration
advent calendar (doesnt need to be the entire calendar, maybe one day with a window that opens to reveal something)
Rainy city streets (without cars though), love the wet pavement, buildings, lights reflecting off wet streets etc. (some favorites on my pinterest art board or heres some from google images:  https://goo.gl/TqLNjk )

Brief Description: This was for a senders choice pocket letter, but I noted that my partners favourite colour was green and that she liked recycling stuff, so I created a green and green pocket letter for her.

Project Name: Brownies
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: This is my go to recipe for Brownies, so I am really confident making this recipe now. It crumbles on top and is gooey in the middle. I made one plain chocolate and the other with a peanut butter swirl.

200g dark chocolate
50g butter
250g golden caster sugar
50g dark muscovado sugar (I used light, they were fine!)
3 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla essence
75g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven 180C. Grease and line 20cm square baking tin.
Melt together chocolate and butter.
Whisk eggs and sugar until thick and light in colour.
Stir in chocolate mix and vanilla essence.
Gently fold in flour and baking powder, until just combined.
Pour into prepared tin.
Bake in over until set, but still soft in centre - 30-40 mins.

Peanut butter version - warm 2-3 tbsps peanut butter in microwave until softened and put spoonfuls over top of brownie mix. Use a knife to swirl peanut butter in. Bake as above.

Project Name: Cheese straws two ways
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: We had arranged an afternoon tea with friends and I was responsible for the savoury. Alongside sandwiches, I put together some really quick cheese straws.


Take a sheet of puff pastry and cut into quarters.
On one quarter spread a mix of cream cheese and sun dried tomato pesto. (I used a tbsp cheese and dsp of pesto.) - Having tried these, I would add a little grated parmesan cheese, it was a little mild on flavour for me.
On a second quarter, spread a little mustard, sprinkle with grated cheese and a pinch of cayenne.
Place another quarter of pastry on top of each and roll slightly to push two sides together.
Slice into 8 slices and place on baking tray, twisting them as you place then down.
Bake at 180C for about 25 mins or until golden.

Project Name: Goats cheese and red onion mini quiche
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: While there are hundreds of quiche recipes out there to choose from/follow, I nearly always just wing it and add what I fancy. They usually turn out ok!  Roll Eyes

This particular recipe -

Sheet of ready rolled shortcrust pastry (I know my baking limitations, and pastry is it!)
Piece of goats cheese - chopped into cubes
1 red onion - sliced and fried in butter until caramelised and left to cool a little
Small pot of single cream
1 egg
Handful of grated cheese
Salt and pepper

I rolled the pastry a little thinner, as I was making mini quiches. Cut circles and line 12 hole tin.
Add a little onion and a few cubes of goats cheese into the bottom of each pastry circle.
Mix single cream and the egg together and season well. Stir in the grated cheese.
Fill each pastry case with the egg mix and bake for about 20 mins, or until golden on top, at 180C.

I had hoped to finish my patches before I left for vacation on Saturday but we had a skunk incident last night that took up a lot of time. I looked up the closest usps at my destination and it's not too far, and I also have a 12 hours drive I can do some stitching during, so hopefully I'll still get them out in time. Im picturing me stitching while I get a pedicure Friday lol

I love this! I may or may not stick my phone in my boyfriend's face 10 times a day and say "Lookit the bay-bees" and it's always puppies or kittens.

Thank you! 
I'm one of those crazy people who can't follow a pattern exactly.  For these I pieced together a bunch of different patterns. One to get the stitch count, one for the stitch pattern on the heel flap, I consulted 3 patterns to turn the heel, and back to the first pattern to get the gusset instructions and the toe decreases....
Maybe someone else has a default pattern that is simple to understand!
