1  Everyone Deserves SOME Sort of Award! - Make your own odd 'First Place' ribbons! in Completed Projects by Heather Bailey on: August 15, 2006 12:57:58 AM
       

I recently held a dumb joke contest for my birthday.  Here is the award I made for the Biggest Birthday Laugh, fully customized to the occasion, and a real treat to make!  Now I have visions of 'First Place' ribbons for 'Lord of the Late Fees,' 'Most Afraid of Dogs,' and a personal favorite, ''My Strangest Friend."

What ribbons would you make?  Post your ideas - or - better yet, make some of your own 'First Place' ribbons, snap a photo, and brag about them right here!

I love your stuff!! And your pics are really great too...are you into photography [so random....]

I'm just learning. It helps that my husband is a professional photographer -- I get to use his fancy cameras and ask him questions. Wink

Abrupt subject change:  I made some more pear pincushions this week.  I experimented a bit with stitching around the leaves and I added an underleaf for holding needles. 

         

The last two photos are of the same pincushion.  The final shot just shows the new 'needlebook' leaves in action!

3  DROOL! Delicious Embroidery Thread Organization! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Heather Bailey on: August 09, 2006 12:38:32 AM
Ok, silly title, but it's late here.  How much more tempting is it to start a project when your supplies look all luscious like this?  All it took was one night winding bobbins in front of the t.v.  It was TOTALLY worth it. 







BTW, I purchased the plastic bobbins and hinged rings as a set in the craft section of Walmart.  I've seen them at Michael's too.

4  *Little Breads* - Recipe with PHOTOS! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Heather Bailey on: August 09, 2006 12:23:48 AM


Yikes - what a silly name. My sister adopted this quick recipe from me and her husband promptly named it "Little Breads." Somehow the name has stuck, so humor me.

This is a yummy and quick dinner, hors d'oeuvre or snack -- just thought I'd share :-)



First, slice some delicious bread. I usually use a long sourdough baguette, which makes tiny little bread rounds (hence the name Little Breads).  In the photographs I've chosen a larger rosemary olive oil bread from the LaBrea Bakery.  Spread a light layer of butter on the top and sprinkle with a yummy garlic salt.  Place these in a 400 oven for 10 minutes or until the bread is lightly toasted. 



Next, place slices of yummy tomato on top of the toasted bread.  You may choose to sprinkle a little more garlic salt or other seasoning on top of the tomatoes. 



Finally,  sprinkle feta cheese on top of the tomatoes -- a lot or a little (we had a lot that night)  :-)

Place your concoction in the oven on 400 for ten minutes to cook those tomatoes and warm that cheese.  I like to toast them on Broil for a couple of minutes at the end -- makes 'em crunchy and pretty.  That's it!  Little Breads are great served with a side of green beans or another favorite vegetable.

5  The Perfect Pear Pincushion in Completed Projects by Heather Bailey on: August 08, 2006 11:47:38 PM


Oh, it turned out so perfectly pearish!  I think I may have to do a pattern down the line.  It's stuffed with wood shavings, to keep the pins sharp and so they won't sink in too easily.  The leaf is for holding needles.  In fact, I think I'm going to make a couple more pear pincushions tomorrow for a birthday giveaway at the end of the week -- maybe I'll host a clean joke contest to choose the winner -- Hmmm. 

And I made this tape measure to go with it -- too cute!

6  Behold! The Yo-Yo Flower in Completed Projects by Heather Bailey on: August 08, 2006 11:38:14 PM






A simple project for crafty couch potatoes!  Make some -- you know you want to! These flowers are simple enough that you probably don't need a tutorial.  Materials include, a fabric yo-yo, a button, green wire, floral tape, and a needle & thread. 

If you need help making yo-yos, here's a direct link to a photo tutorial on yo-yo making:  Yo-Yo Step-by-Step

xo--Heather
