181  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Halloween Wall Quilt on: October 19, 2010 08:00:03 PM
I made this wall quilt for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. She finally got to open it today!!

I wanted to make something Halloween-ey but not over the top so I tried to choose fabrics that were a bit more subtle. I used the Oh Frannson Mix Tape pattern (again). It's such a fantastic pattern for beginners like me Smiley.







Thank you for looking!

184  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein Clothespins on: September 20, 2010 07:59:45 PM
I've been having fun with clothespins and felt lately! I made this couple last night. They were very quick and easy and will be fun to have hanging around over halloween.



I made a pattern out of paper, cut the felt pieces, glued the pieces in place, embellished with a little embroidery and then glued the whole thing to a clothespin. I considered putting magnets on them but it's kind of fun to just clip them around the house (see below) Smiley.



Here is a picture of the back...



Thanks for looking!
185  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Arrgghhh You Ready For Talk Like a Pirate Day? on: September 18, 2010 09:23:24 AM
I made this hoop for my partner in the Embroidery Hoopla swap and since tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day I thought I'd share it with all of you!

My partner likes pirates and giant squid so I worked with both of those themes. I cross-stitched the skull and cross bones and cut the squid from felt and embroidered them on.



I used onegroovyday's awesome tutorial to finish the back. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359164.msg4208747#msg4208747


I used this pattern for the skull motif: http://crossstitch.about.com/od/patternsfromyourguide/ig/Expressive-Motifs-Patterns/Small-Skull-and-Crossbones.htm

Ayyyy mateys - thanks for looking!

186  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Embroidery Hoopla Round 2?? on: September 14, 2010 12:16:01 PM
I know we're still having a great time with Hoopla Round 1 (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=355915.0) but I thought I'd go ahead and gauge interest for another round.

I was thinking of possibly starting in mid-October with a 2 week sign-up and 5 - 6 week crafting time. I know we start bumping into holidays around this time so we could also wait until the new year for round 2.

I'd be interested in hearing ideas for how to run the swap next time. I know there is interest in possibly having the option to send more than 1 hoop.

Let me know what you hoopers think!

188  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock-o-saurus Rex! Rawr! on: August 24, 2010 09:51:19 PM
I made this for my partner's dinosaur-lovin' daughter in the sock monkey/critter swap.

I found the instructions in the book, Stray Sock Sewing. It took 7 socks, a bit of felt and a few sore sewing fingers to complete Smiley.

I used womens socks for the body but wish I had used mens so I could stuff him a bit fatter. Next time!





Thanks for looking! MWAH! Dino kiss...



189  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / No Mayo Homemade (almost) Potato Salad on: August 07, 2010 11:33:33 PM
This is my go-to side dish for summer time BBQ's. It's always a big hit and super easy to make. I made this for a party last night and every person that tried it asked for the recipe Smiley.



I don't know the origin of this recipe although it's most likely from my Mom's kitchen. She makes this all the time Smiley.

You can make as much or as little as you'd like but the below ingredients will serve 8 - 10. Play around with the amounts to suit your tastes. I change it up everytime I make it!



Here's what you'll need...
- 1.5 - 2 lbs small red potatoes
- 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh dill
- 4 -5 green onions (including the light green portion)
- 3/4 cup Girard's Champagne salad dressing
- 1 tblspn lemon pepper
- salt and pepper to taste

Here's what you do...
- Bring a big pot of water to boil
- Chop up the potatoes into approx 1/2 inch chunks and submerge in the boiling water. I usually just halve the small ones and quarter the larger ones
- Boil for ~8 minutes or until potatoes are soft but not falling apart
- Drain, set aside and cool to room temperature
- Meanwhile chop up your dill and slice your green onions
- Once your potatoes have cooled, add the salad dressing, lemon pepper, dill and green onions and stir gently
- Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste and you're done!!

This salad can be made ahead of time and actually tastes even better if it spends a night in the fridge. Don't add the green onions until right before serving though - they will brown and wilt if added too early.

Random tip...if you cook with a lot of fresh herbs and you don't have herb scissors...get some! They save so much time!!  Here's a pic of mine Smiley.


Enjoy!!
