Craft Project - Dream To-Do List

WISH LIST:

I'm going to start keeping a list of all the craft projects I want to do on here so I can better keep track of all the ideas and tutorial links.

Other projects I'm dreaming about finding time to do are:

Oven mitt - for me and mom

Potholder - for me and mom or this one

Amy Karol's 5-Minute Skirt - for me

Oliver + S Lazy Day skirt - maybe for a niece

Placemats - for us

Baby Shoes - these are just TOO cute - must be made!!

This diaper changing pad - I want to make one each for my SILs.
Possible Mei Tei here to make for me (mine is falling apart) and perhaps as a gift if it comes out well.

There's an apron in the Linen, Wool, Cotton book that I want to make for me - I tend to use my shirts as aprons, hence all the stains...

Tooth fairy bag for kids soon to lose teeth here.

And this bag is exactly the tutorial I've been looking for! I love these little patchwork bags. Patchwork Pottery makes amazing ones, if you want to drool...

There's also a beautiful little bag tutorial here (listed as a free pattern on the right) - I'd like to make the bigger one first, but this one is beautiful, just less practical...

Probably too daunting for me, but here's a pattern for soft-sole leather children's shoes!! I'll have to look around to see if I can find a leather source. And I guess I'd have to get a new foot for my sewing machine. We'll see. Seems pretty cool!

And this is a fabric label tutorial I want to try out eventually.


QUILTS I WANT TO MAKE:

Moda Baby Quilt Ideas
Half-Pint Quilt-a-Long
9 Patch Quilt

Recipes

Favorite Recipes (not including favorites from Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, from which I do most of my cooking):

Cheeseless Chard Quesadillas (from CSA)

Ingredients:
1 lb chard
2 tbsp olive oil
1 med onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
salt
1 tsp chili powder
4 large sprouted wheat tortillas
2 cups brown rice (cooked w/ meat stock)

Directions:
1. Separate the leaves from the stalk of the chard. Chop the stalks finely, and slice the leaves into 1/2-inch strips.
2. Heat the oil in a stainless pan (one that has a top, for use later). Add the onion and chard stalks and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and chili powder and cook about 1 minute. Add the chard leaves and salt to taste. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until very tender, about 7 minutes. If the greens are soupy, remove the cover and simmer for a minute or two. Adjust the seasonings, adding more salt if necessary.
3. Lay a tortilla in a dry skillet on low heat. Spoon 1/2 cup rice over about half the tortilla. Top the rice w/ some chard (roughly 1/2 cup). Filp the empty side of the tortilla to cover the filling, and then using a spatula, flip the quesadilla in the skillet and pat down a little. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Comments from Yoav: "tasty chard", "more chard"
