1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Christmas coasters on: November 30, 2014 04:18:22 PM
I wanted something to brighten up the coffee table so I whiped these up quick this afternoon.  They're super easy to make - cut 4 1/2" squares of fabric and heavy interfacing and sew together - and they add the Christmas cheer I was looking for Smiley

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quick lap quilt on: November 23, 2014 06:18:49 PM
I finished this a few months ago and it has become one of my cats favorite sleeping spot Cheesy. This is my second quilt so I was scared to do anything too crazy with the quilting so I went with straight* lines.


*I was sewing pretty fast so they weren't as straight as they could have been.
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Favorite vegan recipes? on: July 06, 2014 10:03:25 AM
As a long time vegan, I am constantly trying new recipes and always on the lookout for new things to make!  What are some of your favorite vegan recipes??

Here are some of my favorites:

Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy from Vegan With a Vengeance - this is my goto gravy and is amazing with biscuits

Sweet Chili Lemon Tofu with Wok Steamed Kale and Quinoa - This is quick to make (I just throw the quinoa in the rice cooker so I don't have to worry about it) and delicious.

Pho - This took a while to make but was totally worth it.

One of my recent obsessions has been a modified version of this recipe for making a quick tomato sauce to go with zoodles (zucchini noodles) http://www.fromforkstofitness.com/recipes/zucchini-noodles-zoodles/
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt! (Disappearing 9 Patch) on: March 30, 2014 10:18:58 AM
I started this quilt back in January and just finished hand stitching the binding this morning. Grin  It's hard to believe that it started off as 315 4.5"x4.5" squares!  The finished quilt measures just under 7'x5'.  I felt like the quilt top itself was loud enough so I just went with the same chocolate brown from the small squares for the back and the binding.

Since it was my first time quilting anything larger than a knitting needle roll, I decided to do straight lines that followed the pattern of the quilt top for the actual quilting part.  Here's a close up where you can see the quilting lines.

Overall I'm extremely happy with how it turned out but will definitely be making something a bit smaller for my next quilt  Cheesy

Here's an awesome tutorial MareMare did on how to make a Disappearing 9 Patch quilt top - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422253.0#axzz2xT0UpfHH
5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Pho on: January 01, 2014 03:39:18 PM
I'd never had pho before so I decided to dive in headfirst and try making it.  Smiley  Overall it turned out great (I had no idea what to expect).  I used tofu (cut a block of tofu into chunks and bake at 425F for about 25-30 min, flipping once), baby bok choy, and shitake mushrooms for the toppings.  For the onion (called for in the recipe as a garnish), bok choy, and mushrooms I sauted each ingredient individually with a little evoo and set aside.

Here's the recipe I followed

7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Sweet Chili Lemon Tofu with Wok Steamed Kale and Quinoa on: April 06, 2010 06:54:41 PM
We made this a few weeks ago and it was so pretty that I had to take pictures   Cheesy

It's a modified version of a recipe from Vegan Yum Yum

Instead of using lime, we used lemon juice because that's what we had.  We also substituted kale for collards and made some extra quinoa.  The recipe was super easy to put together and very tasty, I'd highly recommend it!
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / [April Fools] My first time with polymer clay! Chocolate Ice Cream jewelry!! on: April 01, 2010 06:19:07 AM
I lost one of my favorite earrings last week and I wanted to find a new pair quick so I thought what better way than to make my own!  I've had a bunch of polymer clay sitting around for months but I've been too afraid to try working with it.  After several attempts, I finally came up with the perfect idea - combine 2 of my favorite things, jewelry and ice cream!  I love how these turned out!  Comments/questions welcome!   Smiley

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Basket Rib Hand Towel Set on: February 15, 2009 01:08:57 PM
I made this hand towel set for batgirl in the Random Swap and I absolutely love how they turned out!  They were super easy to make and went really fast!  I used Lion Brand Cotton yarn and made a few modification to the pattern to make it bigger -

Cast on 62 stitches, work pattern 30 times, repeat row 1, repeat row 2, bind off in knit. (Full notes on Ravelry)

Close up of the pattern -

Full sized -

Matching washcloth I made with the leftover yarn -

Questions/comments welcome Smiley
