HAPPY NEW YEARToday I finished scheduling the lists of what I really wanted to get done in 2017. There are more things, but I knew there were too many to realistically get done. I settled for a dozen in each category. Then I spent the rest of the day putting together a kit for each item.
This is 12 pair of socks with the pattern and yarn in each. The list is under “Construction” at the top
This is the fish quilt and the bear paw, both time consuming and needling many parts.
These boxes hold the other 10 quilts and the 1/2 of the sewing projects. DH wanted to know how I managed to get 10 quilts in there, but the batting is not in there and that makes the difference.
I did not fair so well on the embroidery projects. I have two projects with the designs copied onto a jump stick, but I still need to find the fabric I purchased for the one and I need to purchase 3 fat quarters for the other one.
Over the past few days, I have been making these chia seed crackers. So we’ve been enjoying munching these during the day. Vary the vegetable and the seasonings for fun.
- 2 cups chia seed
- 1 large onion
- 3-4 stalks celery
- 2 carrots
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes I used shredded
- 3 med garlic cloves
- 1/2 bunch parsley
- braggs or soy sauce to taste
- 1 cup water
Mix all in blender or food processor. Let set 8-12 hours the optionally you can add 1/2 cup soaked sunflower seeds which I don't think I'll add next time. Spread thinly on the plastic trays or parchment paper in the dehydrator and start checking them after 10 hours.
The original recipe that I took off from was from Lorraine Godsoe in the book Raw Inspiration by Lisa Montgomery. There are several good cracker/bread type receipes in this ook
