Resident Chef often refers to himself as being a tall midget and in some ways that's true. He's a little over 6' tall but only sports a 28" inseam with a very long torso. You'd think, with a long torso, that he'd be able to get t-shirts in a tall size and he often can, but unfortunately the sleeve lengths end up bugging him by being too long. So, part of my wifely duties entail shortening sleeves and legs. Yesterday was 'the' day and I ended up doing at least six t-shirts, accompanied by much swearing aimed towards my sewing machine who balks mightily at sewing knit fabric and certainly no more than two layers of it at one time. Even using a 'proper' needle meant for knits doesn't make her happy and thusly doesn't make me happy either. Never mind, they're done. But...not a single stitch got made on my latest landscape. Resident Chef = happy; Magpie = not so much. Oh well, at least I got a little something added to the landscape the day before and I can show you that...
If you have an over-abundance of zucchini and wonder what you can make, perhaps you'd like to give this recipe a try....
ZUCCHINI ONION PIE
- have a peek through the gallery of THIS artist (I especially love the animals!)
- And the galleries filled with works by THIS artist are fascinating too.
- Lots of links HERE for different quilting techniques.
- I've seen a technique similar to THIS that requires a lot of pressure/rubbing to do the transfer. This looks much simpler to do, provided you have a heat gun.
