My latest project was super easy: I bought a cute Halloween hair bow clip at Michael's and some cute skull-themed cabochans. I hot glued one of the cabochans to the center of the bow to give it a little extra something.

Prompt: September - Isis/Osiris
Team: Fandom
Project Name: A Skeleton's Best Friend
Osiris is the god of the dead and Zero, being a ghost dog, is most definitely dead. I made Zero from this pattern from Ravelry then made a triangle for his body. I also gave him an orange nose, instead of the red the pattern called for, because his nose is a jack o'lantern.

My own little Zero decoration:


I made his head using this pattern from Ravelry then made a triangle for his body. I also gave him an orange nose, instead of the red, like the pattern called for, because his nose is a jack o'lantern.

Prompt: July - Orion Nebula
Team: Fandom
Event: Yarnology
Project Link: [soon]
Project Name: Crocheted baby sandals
While looking for images of nebulae, I found an image of the Bubble Nebula, which is full of lovely shades of purple. I was recently invited to a baby shower by one of my boyfriend's friends who is giving one for his fiancee. It's their first baby and a girl so I thought a soft purple would be the perfect color choice. And to imitate the stars in the nebula, the buttons are glittery (not sure you can see the in the photos).

Please excuse my toes down there! Lol

Made these for my boyfriend's friend whose fiancee is pregnant with their first child:

I made them with a pattern I found on Ravelry. The buttons are clear glittery ones from Walmart.

Haven't been doing too much crafting lately Tongue I've been cleaning house and helping my boyfriend to organize all of our Magic cards. We've got about 1/3 of the cards organized by color, so far.
But I've been doing a bit of cooking:



The mashed potatoes were made using the same recipe as the stewed potatoes: all I did was mash them with a serving fork since I don't have a masher Smiley The recipe can be found here and is based on a recipe my grandma used when I was growing up. I say "based on" because it's pulled from memory and I'm not 100% sure that it's accurate, partly due to my grandma not measuring; I don't either unless I'm following a set recipe.

Prompt: June - Sword Swallower
Team: Fandom
Event: Foodology
Project Name: Homemade mashed potatoes
I had NEVER made homemade mashed potatoes before Shocked I used to help my grandma make them all the time when I was growing up but I've never made them on my own. I was always paranoid that I'd make them really lumpy and/or way too dry. But my boyfriend asked if I could make mashed potatoes for dinner today so I sucked it up and made them. I cooked them the same way I prepared the stewed potatoes then mashed them using a serving fork (we don't have a masher and it's how my grandma did it). I was so happy that I was able to get them mostly smooth and that they were delicious! Cheesy

Not sure why the pic uploaded sideways. Maybe because I posted it from my phone? Huh

150  Manly Meal- filet mignon, potatoes and corn (with potato recipe) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by RedheadWithThread on: July 06, 2015 11:46:17 AM
First, I'd like to say that my boyfriend is the one who named it a "manly meal" because "steak and potatoes is as manly as you can get". Roll Eyes
Second, the recipe is adapted from something I used to help my maternal grandmother make when I was a kid. She called it "stewed potatoes" but I'm not sure if that's an accurate description. Huh The recipe can be easily adjusted if you're cooking for more, or less, people.
Also, I don't measure so I'm not sure how accurate the 1/4c water is.


Stewed potatoes for two
You'll need:
Medium-sized skillet
3 potatoes of your favored variety (I used three Russets because it's what we had; it's really delicious with red potatoes)
Butter (I used 1/4 stick; you could also use olive oil instead)
1/4 cup water
Salt & pepper, to taste
Optional:
Garlic powder or fresh minced garlic, to taste*
Onion powder or fresh minced onion, to taste*
*Preferably the fresh but if the powder is all you have, use it!

Wash, peel and cube your potatoes or just wash and cube them, if you prefer to leave the skin.
Melt the butter in your skillet over medium-high heat. After the butter is completely melted, toss in your potatoes and saute them for about five minutes. Add the water then cover, allowing them to cook for five minutes then season to taste and stir. Cover and allow them to cook for another ten minutes. You should now have melt in your mouth delicious potatoes with a creamy "gravy" of sorts. Enjoy!
Note: you could also use this as a start for making homemade mashed potatoes, as my grandmother sometimes did.
