An apron I made for my daughter at her request.  She wanted something feminine but still a bit punky.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler Aprons - Granddaughters on: August 28, 2010 02:58:35 PM
I made these two aprons for my granddaughters.  They are not perfect, but I hope they like them.  I have just started sewing and I am really enjoying putting love in these sewing projects.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Domestic Diva Apron on: July 18, 2010 12:51:07 PM
I am just learning to sew, so I bought a Domestic Diva Apron kit and sewed it up.  I added the sweet buttons I bought online from My Little Bit of Whimsy.  I think it's cute.  Grin



7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Upholstery on: July 12, 2010 05:36:36 PM
My DH and I decided we needed to recover the dining room chairs for our new color scheme.  Quote from the furniture store for a recover was $200 per cushion.  We drove down to the city to Calico Corners and picked up an 8 yard remnant that was discounted to $50 for 8 yards.  We only used 2 yards.  That's $6.25 per yard at $12.50 for all four chairs, with 6 yards of fabric left over for curtains, pillows, and a tablecloth or runner.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Freezer Paper Band Shirt on: July 12, 2010 06:56:24 AM
First attempt at using a freezer paper stencil.  This was a very fun project.  I followed the "Craftster Quickies" tutorial as I went. Smiley

Here is the finished tee:



This is the CD cover I made my stencil from:



Here is the paint I used and I used "stencil brushes" specifically.


9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cooking Challenge - Celebrating July 4th! - Old Fashioned Potato Salad on: July 05, 2010 01:11:08 PM
I made old-fashioned potato salad from Barefoot Contessa at Home by Ina Garten.  However, to make it healthy, I substituted Vegenaise grapeseed oil for the mayonnaise.  It is very delicious served nice and cold, and very important to use fresh ingredients.

Recipe

3 pounds small red potatoes
             kosher salt
1 cup      Vegenaise grapeseed oil (or good mayonnaise)
1/4 cup   buttermilk, milk, or white wine (I used wine)
2 T         Dijon mustard
2 T         whole grain mustard
1/2 cup   chopped fresh dill
             freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup   medium-diced celery
1/2 cup   small-diced red onion

Place the potatoes and 2 tablespoons salt in a large pot of water.  Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are barely tender when pierced with a knife.  Drain the potatoes in a colander, then place the colander with the potatoes over the empty pot off the heat and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel.  Leave the potatoes to steam for 15-20 minutes, until tender but firm.
     Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, wine (or buttermilk, milk) Dijon and whole-grain    mustards, dill, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper.  Set aside.
     When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them into quarters or halves, depending on their size.  Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl and pour enough dressing over them to moisten.  (As the salad sits, you may need to add more dressing.)  Add the celery and red onion, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper.  Toss well, cover, and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Apron (first) on: July 05, 2010 12:16:11 PM
I deconstructed an apron my MIL had given me 25 years ago to make this.  She was and still is very crafty.   This was a fun project, but the ruffle was a bit frustrating for a first timer.  It made a nice homemade gift for a friend who loves blue.
