192  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...



193  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!!

195  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Embroidery Swap? on: July 28, 2010 08:46:37 PM
Would anyone be interested in swapping a bit of embroidery? I know there was a One Tiny Embroidered Thing swap recently and I was thinking of something similar...only small instead of tiny Smiley. Perhaps pick a hoop size (6" - 8") and embroider something within those size limits?
196  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Frakin' Toasters (Battlestar Galactica Cross Stitch) on: July 19, 2010 06:31:14 PM
I made this for my partner in the Battlestar Galactica swap. If you haven't seen the show I imagine that this makes no sense Smiley. The bad guys on the show are basically robots that have taken on human form. The real humans call them "Toasters". The word "Frak" is used on the show in place of a similar sounding cuss word.



The toaster pattern came from andwabisabi Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/andwabisabi). I absolutely LOVE all of her adorable patterns.

Thank you for looking!
197  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Collection of Cozy Knitted Goodies on: July 16, 2010 04:21:48 PM
I made these knitted treats for Troublet in the Geezer swap. She's received so I can share now!

A cowl made with Malabrigo (so yummy) and this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/water-diamonds-scarf-and-cowl. It was really fun to knit! I made the larger size cowl and it only required 1 skein.


Here is a shot while it was blocking...


A pair of wrist warmers made with Frogtree merino worsted. I've never used this brand before but I really liked it and it was pretty inexpensive. I used a pattern from the book, Last Minuted Knitted Gifts.


Cabled footies made with Cascade Superwash and a pattern from the book, One Skein. Fast and fun pattern - I actually managed to finish both socks!


Leg warmers made with...shoot I can't remember what kind of yarn I used for these but I do remember the pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/les-cables-de-faux. I wasn't totally thrilled with how the stitch pattern came out but it was still a fun project. I definitely want to make myself a pair of leg warmers now.


And lastly, to keep her tea cup nice and cozy, I made this mug cozy using Cascade 220 and this awesome craftster pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194286.msg2050779#msg2050779


Phew! That's it Smiley. Thank you so much for looking!
198  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Newbie Cross Stitch Question - Triangles on Charts on: July 12, 2010 07:56:07 PM
To date I've only done cross stitch patterns that are pixelated (for lack of a better word) - they only had complete squares.

I'm trying to work on some lettering now and the chart has triangular shapes or half squares within each aida squre (at corners and rounded edges). I'm stuck on what to do here and can't seem to find a good answer online. Do I just do one half of the cross stitch in the direction indicated?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

200  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cupcakes Make Butts Big on: July 05, 2010 03:51:23 PM
I'm attending several weddings this year and need to drop a few pounds to fit into last year's dresses. This little guy is going to sit in my baking cabinet to remind me what cupcakes do to butts.

He's made with cotton floss and a 1.25 mm hook. Finished size is about 1.5" tall.



Here he is with his more butt-friendly fruit pal.



Thanks for looking!
