Podlozky - Potholders

Dcera podle navodu, ktery jse sem minule pridala, udelala podlozku. On to tedy mel byt puvodne kosicek ale koupila malo provazku a tak vznikla tahle podlozka.


My daughter made a cute coaster from my last post tutorial.  It was supposed to be a basket but she did not have enough string, so she made this instead.








Protoze spousta z vas se pustila do hackovani a pleteni ruznych podlozek, chnapek, decek, zinek  -  nevim jak jinak jim jeste rikat  -  mela bych pro vas navrh. Inspirovala jsem se jak jinak nez tady na internetu, kde podobne akce casto probihaji. Jedna se o tzv. vymenny  program. Kazdy kdo se zucastni, vyrobi jednu podlozku, tu odesle a vymenou dostane jinou od nekoho dalsiho.  Jestli mate zajem, napiste mi na email , ja vse zorganizuji a sestavim tabulku. Myslim, ze by  kazdy mohl uvest i svou oblibenou barvu, ci barevnou paletu, v jake by si vyrobek pral. Prosim pridejte link na tento prispevek na vas blog, cim nas bude vic, tim lepe.  Budu se tesit na vasi postu, muj email      buchta1us@gmail.com     Jakmile uvidim, ze mate zajem, pridam vice podrobnych informaci a muzeme zacit, dekuji!


I would like to organize potholder swap. If you would like to participate, please email me at
  buchta1us@gmail.com  Once we have enough people that are interested, I will post more information and we can start. You can put this link on your blog too, so we can get the word out, thank you!

Photos on canvas - Fotky na platne

Pred nedavnem jsem si ulozila postup jak aplikovat fotky na platno. Dnes jsem ho konecne vyzkousela. Kamaradka chtela koupit jeden z mych obrazu ale ja se snim nejak nemuzu rozloucit, maluji  si vetsinou pro sve poteseni a tohle byl muj uplne prvni obraz, maky jsou ma oblibena inspirace :) Tak jsem se rozhodla udelat ji repliku k jejim dnesnim narozeninam Pridavam popis ktery je bohuzel v anglictine ale alespon vidite jak na to podle obrazku. Postup je jednoduchy, list papiru ktery normalne pouzivate v tiskarne obalite  tenkým balícím papirem ( tissue paper ) a v inkoustove tiskarne ( ne laserove) vytisknete.  Lepidlo ( mod podge) a pripravky ktere se daji koupit tady u nas  se jiste daji nahradit vecmi na decoupage v  prodeji v CR. Naneseme vrstvu na platno, opatrne preneseme vytisknutou fotku,  uhladime a nechame zaschnou. Po zaschnuti znovu pretreme a tim vse zafixujeme.  Ja tuto ubrouskovou techniku nedelam ale myslim, ze je to stejny postup. Pouziva se jemny papir,  protoze presne zkopiruje strukturu platna.  Snad jsem vse srozumitelne vysvetlila a jestli se do toho take pustite, preji mnoho zdaru a rada bych videla co jste vytvorili.


postup najdete zde  

 I saved this DIY while ago and finally put it in use today. My friend wants to buy one of my paintings but  I can't part with so I  decided to make her this print canvas copy. It's her birthday today and I hope she'll like it.  I used Mod Podge for the base to put the tissue paper on but for the top I applied two coats of Matte Medium instead and it worked really well. Good luck if you try this technique and I would like to see it.





 A tady je vysledek.............

And here is the result.............

Just another weekend. . . . .



Zrovna jsem se vratila z "navstevy" tohoto blogu. Moc se mi libi Cecilie obrazy ve francousken stylu a  jeji  " pred a po " upravy ruznych kusu nabytku.  Muzete se tam take zucastnit souteze.

I just visited Cecilia's  Rosslee blog. I like her french stile paintings, her " before and after " furniture makeovers and the whole personal feel of her blog. You can also enter her giveaway.








Tady  je dalsi objev vikendoveho toulani.  I kdyz pri jeho vyrobe potrebujete hacek, nemusite vubec umet hackovat! Vim, ze hodne casto mluvim o tom jak se pustim do toho ci onoho napadu, ktery me kazdou chvili nadchne ale tenhle kosicek je tozhodne na prednim miste meho seznamu :))


Here is another weekend web browsing find and even though you need crochet hook to make it, you don't need to know how to crochet. I know I often say how I will make this and that and never actually find the time but this basket is definitely on the top of my " to do " list.


I prestoze  prsi,  vcera den jsme udelali dost prace a jeste se potesili necekanou navstevu. Zastavili se u nas znami, ktere jsme uz nejaky cas nevideli. Dnes budu zase v kuchyni, zavarovat dalsi dobroty na zimu :)
A jak jste se meli vy?

Despite the rainy weather, we still worked outside in the yard  and also enjoyed  a nice visit with friends,  stopping by unexpectedly yesterday.  I'll be in the kitchen today,  making  yet more can goodies for winter months :))
And how was your weekend?

Recept na Salsu - Salsa recipe


Rajcatum se letos  dari, zbiram je na kyble a zavaruji a zavaruji....... vetsinou  nakrajene na kostky,ve vlastni stave ale vcera jsem natrhala take paprily a kukurici a udela salsu.

We have a bumper crop of tomatoes this year, I am harvesting them by buckets and can and can.....mostly diced tomatoes just in their own juice, but yesterday, I also picked peppers and corn and made salsa.



Tady je  recept, ktery jsem  dala dohromady spojenim meho vyzkouseneho receptu a dalsich,ktere jsem nasla na internetu. Vse jsem zjednodusila a prizpusbila nasi chuti. Tady je:

6 kg rajcat (sparit, oloupat a nakrajet na vetsi kostky)
5 paprik nakrajenych na kosticky
3 cibule  nakrajene na kosticky
3 kukurice( ne krmne), nozem okrajime zrnicka (muzete pouzit i mrazenou ci konzervovanou)
3 strouzky cesneku (prolisovat)
palive papricky ( podle chuti), nasekat na jemno
250 ml jablecneho octa
3lzicky cukru
2 1/2 lzicky soli
1 lzicka koreni cumin
hrst nasekaneho cilantro (nat koreni koriandr)
1 conzerva rajcatoveho protlaku ( u nas 156 ml )

Nakrajena rajcata nechame vykapat prez cednik, tim zkratime dobu vareni. Do velkeho hrnce dame vsechny prisady ( mino rajcatoveho protlaku ) a varime za obcasneho michani do zhoustnuti. Kdyz mame pozadovanou konzistenci (asi 30- 45 minut) pridame rajcatovy protlak,jeste chvilku povarime,  naplnime do sklenic a 15 minut sterilujeme.



Here is my recipe, that I put together from my favorite recipe and some I found on the net. I simplified and adjusted it to our taste.

6 kg ( 12 pounds ) diced, peeled, tomatoes
5 peppers diced
3 onions diced
3 cloves of garlic choped
cornlets from 3  ears of corn
halupino pepper to your taste, finely choped
1 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tsp. sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. cumin
handful of choped cilantro
1 can (156 ml) tomato paste
 
Drain the tomatoes in a sieve ( this will reduce the cooking time greatly ) then put everything but the tomato paste in a big pot and cook uncovered until  desired  consistency for about 30- 45 minutes,  stir frequently. Then add the tomato paste, cook for a little bit longer. Fill the jars and sterilize for 15 minutes.





Tady je, dobrou chut !!

Ta- Da! here it is, enjoy !!



Salsu jime nejradeji s chipsy, nebo jako soucas mexickych jidel napriklad Tostadas, burritos, tacos.
Our favorite - salsa and chips.  Or use with Mexican dishes like Tostadas, buritos, tacos.

Pro vetsinu lidi je  9/11 vzpominka na hrozne udalosti . Ja take vzdy vzpominam na obeti toho desiveho dne ale pro mne navzdy  9//11  zustane dnem Neilovych narozenin.   Minuly viken jsme meli nadherne pocasi a tak jsme to oslavovali  jak jinak nez z rodinou a prateli na lodi a na plazi. Makeef byl ve svem zivlu :)



   For most people 9/11 is the day to remember the victims of this horrific event.  I too think of them this day, but  for me  9/11   was and always will be Neils B-day!  We had such a magnificent weather last weekend and we celebrated with friend and family, how else?  We spent the day on the boat and at the beach. Makeef had a blast too :))





Mesic  na ceste domu.

Coming home watching the moon.



A o nemene nadherny zapad slunce.
And equally magnificent sunset.



Jeste namame zadny plan na tento vikend ale rada se dozvim co budete delat vy?  At uz je to cokoliv, hezky si to uzijte, zdravim........

We have no plans for this weekend  yet, but I would  like to know what yous are. Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy it and have lots of fun, cheers........

Amy Butler

 
 Pocasi se asi zblaznilo, teploty se uz tyden splhaji ke tricitce a ja si to bajecne teplo poradne uzivam. Zahradka si take lebedi a tak si obcas udelam radost a koupim dalsi "prirustek".  Tohle jsou Ibisky.


Vcera to s nami trosku zatraslo a to doslova. Nejdrive jsem si rikala " co to ti chlapy na te strese delaji " (prave pokladali tasky) protoze se hybal cely dum, kdyz se ale zacalo vse houpat a v kuchyni cinkaly sklenicky, doslo mi, ze je to zemetreseni. Nastesti se nikde nic nestalo, bylo  nejsilnejsi od roku 2004,  6.3 Rychterovy stupnice asi 240km od nas.  Zemetreseni jsou v teto oblasti na dennim poradku ale vetsinou  mensi nebo dale a tak je ani necitite.  Tady je mapa vsech za poslednich 30 dnu. Prestoze zijeme v oblasti Ohniveho kruhu a predpoved toho "Velkeho" zemetreseni nad nami stale visi, musim priznat, ze nejsme pripraveni. Pokazde kdyz se neco stane slibuji, ze to napravim ale ted "balicek na preziti" dam uz doopravdy dohromay.



We have gorgeous, atypical weather for this time of the year. The temperatures climbed close to 30 all last week and I am enjoying the heat. The garden is doing beautifully so I am still buying new plants. My latest addition -  Hibiscus.

We are little bit shaken after yesterdays 6.3 magnitude earthquake. The epicenter was more then 200km away from here but  the house shook pretty good and so did I :) It was the biggest since 2004 and even though I know we live right on the Ring of fire I  hope we NEVER have to experience the "Big One". This is a map of earthquakes around us for last 30 days, they are pretty common, but usually not as strong and further away. It was a wake up call for me, we do not have an emergency earthquake kit in place after all these years living here and I am going to make sure we are well prepared.








Asi pred dvema mesici jsem si koupila knihu od Amy Butler. Mnozi z vas ji mozna znaji a nebo alespon jeji kolekce latek. Strihy na kabely a kabelky jsou uzasne, tady je mala ochutnavka.

A while ago, I bought this amazing book. Lots of you may know Amy Butler,  her patterns and fabric collections already, but here is a little sample of what's in this book.






A kdyz uz jsem vas tak navnadila,  pridavam strih na tuto kabelku. Je zdarma k dispozici ke stazeni tady. Doufam, ze se vam vsem, talentovanym svadlenkam bude libit a preji krasnou nedeli :)) 


And because I don't want just tease you with pictures,  here is a free pattern download for this beautiful purse. Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy :))
