261  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Three Little Ladies on: July 02, 2013 01:52:44 PM
I treated myself to a couple new embroidery books for my birthday. I found these little cuties in one of the books. The blondies are for a friend and the bathing beauty I am keeping for myself.

263  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Soft Peanut Butter Treats on: June 30, 2013 07:51:34 AM
Having three dogs can pose a few problems, one being that each one has a different food thing going on. These treats perfect for all three. These treats are great for older dogs because they are slightly soft.

Ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 cup water
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons oil

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and form a dough ball


Roll out dough with rolling pin and cut into small bites. I have used small cookie cutters before but they really were too big for my dogs. I also didn't make them too thick so they could chew them. Cut them do your dog's needs.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes.
 
Cool on rack

I put a little baggie full next to the door and freeze the rest. They can last in the freezer for about 6 months.


A few things:
I tried it with natural peanut butter. It was okay but I might reduce the oil by about 1/2 next time if I use the natural stuff

I used regular flour but if your dog has an allergy, you can certainly try different ones and maybe adjust the cooking time.

You can put these treats on a baking sheet pretty close to eachother. They do not spread. On a big cookie sheet I used about half of the dough.

As you can see, these treats are so good, they even brought the elusive Emo Jujube out of her natural cave habitat.
264  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Craftster's 10th Anniversary Cross-Category Challenge! Needlework Winner! on: June 25, 2013 09:19:29 AM

Craftster's 10th Anniversary Cross-Category Challenge


Craftster is turning 10!! That's right, August marks 10 years of running with scissors all over the internet! In honor of this momentous time, we're hosting a cross-category challenge! Every category will have the same challenge with the same entry times. The 10 category winners with the most votes will be put head-to-head-to-head-to... you get it.... for a GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE!!!

The theme for this challenge is "What Craftster means to me." Now, don't be scared of this theme! Craftster is made by YOU, Craftster can mean different things to different people so whatever it means to you, that's great!! Still unsure it's as easy as I say? Here's some examples that are just the tip of the iceberg!

  • "To me, Craftster means trying new things! Here's a project featuring a technique I've never tried before!"
  • "To me, Craftster means tutorials! Here's a project I made from a tutorial I found on the boards."
  • "To me, Craftster means swapping! Here's a project I'm sending in a swap."
  • "To me, Craftster means a community where I can show off my geekiness! Here's a project that relates to this thing I'm interested in!"

See? Not so bad, eh? Seriously, as long as you can describe why you feel your project reflects something Craftster represents to you, then you're good!

Rules and Suggestions:
  • You may enter in as many categories as you like, but you may only enter a project once. So if you wanted to enter in three categories, you would need to have made three projects!
  • Your project must have been made between June 24th and the time of posting. Your entry should not have been posted on Craftster previously (ie not something you made and posted years ago!)
  • If using a pattern or tutorial, please let us know.
  • You can begin crafting at any time but remember to post your thread in this board from August 7th through August 13th at 11:59:59 PDT. Voting for each category will be open August 14th to August 21st.
  • Although there will be 20 category winners, only the 10 winners with the most votes will go on to a grand prize round! Voting for this will be August 23rd to August 30th, with the grand prize winner being formally announced September 3rd!

Prizes:
The winner in each category will receive a Craftster pin, and a Craftster USB card.

Plus!
The winner in the Needlework Category will also receive sampler pack of 105 skeins of embroidery floss and a stitchable iPhone 4/4S cell phone cover, courtesy of Coats & Clark!!

I absolutely love the beach-laying out in the sun, trying to surf...best memories of my life.



Close up of all the stitching.


266  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Mr. Bird and Ms. Rabbit Embroidery on: June 15, 2013 06:38:57 AM
I stitched these up for Cackle in the Invite Your Partner swap. She was so awesome to take pictures for me.



267  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bug Cross Stitch on: June 15, 2013 06:35:43 AM
I stitched this up for Cackle in the Invite Your Partner swap. The pattern is from a French bug cross stitch book and I decided to add the pins so he would look like a specimen.



Big thanks to Cackle for taking this picture for me.
268  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sweet Tea Towels on: June 02, 2013 06:10:54 AM
I made these for my good friend, Helen. I have such a sweet tooth and since she is such a sweetie, I thought the cake theme was perfect.

This one is my favorite.

269  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / How to be a Glamour Puss on: May 30, 2013 08:24:16 PM
I did this piece for the Hoopla along but had a horrible disaster. I used quilter's wax for the metallic thread and I completely forgot about it when I went to iron the final piece. The wax made the ink from the pattern bleed everywhere. It was totally ruined. Here is the piece before I ironed it and was going to mount it.
270  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I Never Finish Anythi.... on: May 19, 2013 04:54:25 PM
I stitched this up for dessadoll in the pinterst swap.
