21  COOKING / Dessert / Pumpkin bars on: January 12, 2008 11:51:03 PM

I actually got it from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.  Their... 11th edition.  It's from a couple years ago.  I hope this isn't copyright infringment lol.  But, here's the recipe.  It's very simple.

Pumpkin Bars  Preheat at 350.
2              call-purpose flour
1 1/2c       sugar
2tsp          baking powder
2tsp          ground cinnamon
1tsp          baking soda
1/4tsp       salt
1/4tsp       ground cloves
4              beaten eggs
1 16oz can pumpkin
1c             cooking oil
(it also calls for cream cheese frosting)

1.  In large mixing bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking posder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cloves.  Stir in the eggs, pumpkin and oil till combined.  Spread batter in an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. (I used two loaf pans, worked perfectly fine)
2.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or till a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool for 2 hours on a wire rack.  Spread with Cream Cheese Frosting; cut into bars.  Makes 48 bars.
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Chiuauah Sweater on: January 07, 2008 08:09:58 PM
I made this for my sister in laws adorable little Deer Chiuauah, Bella.  It's two layers of terry sweater (only took one sleeve lol) and one layer of beige gingham which I cut about half an inch bigger so I could fold it over easily.  I used a red gingham for the little heart that is hand sewn on.  I used elastic at the ends of the neck and chest straps so it'd be comfortable for her.

It's modeled by my daughters stuffed dog.

This is little Bella:

I got the pattern here:

23  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mr. Yard Gnome on: December 21, 2007 11:25:05 PM
I got the idea for this from the other one that someone posted.  My mom's had her greyish-green gnome for like 5 years and refuses to get rid of it.  So, I made her one she can take anywhere.

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fair Isle and intarsia... on: October 17, 2007 06:07:50 PM
What's the difference between the two?  I see that the Fair Isle is more intricate.  But some of it is basically the same as some stuff I've seen as intarsia.
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I want to make something, anything!!! on: October 03, 2007 05:57:34 PM
I know how to crochet but, I want to be able to knit too.  I love the way knit looks for most things, it just looks cleaner, more finished.

I learned the basic knit and purl from Lion Brand's website.  But, nothing I try comes out looking like I want it to.  I try a k1, p1 and don't get the mini ribbing.  I try k1 row, purl 1 row to make a square and.. it doesn't look right.  Are there any other websites that can show me better?  Kind of like Annie's Attic is to crochet?

27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / This was a really pretty dress now, it's a really cute bag! on: September 21, 2007 11:35:11 AM
What you need to make this bag:
-Five neighbors walking by the door asking, 'What are you making now?'
-One horribly bent sewing machine needle
-One peanutbutter bar (Nutter-Butter bar)
-One sleeping two year old
-One phone call from the husband while he's on break at work
-Four phone calls from the father in law on how to spell things
-One phone call from the father in law about a football players name
-One phone call from a sister in law wanting a purse too
-One phone call from the sister in law panacking about the vaccines her daughter just got and why her leg's a little swollen.
-Three instant messeges
-One neighbor asking when you're going to finally bake again
-Twenty minutes to try to remember how to line a purse
-One run away bobbin
-And one conversation between the apartmanager and the people upstairs to evesdrop on because they're right ouside your door (which is open by the way).

Oh, and a dress, some purple material that's been lying around for three years and a broken scrunchie.  And thread.

This dress was in a huge bag of clothes my sister in law gave me:

Really cute, right?  Fit funny.

2 hours later:

That little pinch in the side will be fixed when I get a new needle.

The 'button' which used to be one of those hair bauble things.

The top of the loop that had to be hand-stitched because of the bent machine needle.

The lining and what used to be the back of the dress.

29  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / It's a shrunken head! on: September 05, 2007 05:36:11 PM
I made this out of an apple.  It's also my first attempt at one and it was amazingly simple.  I'm making four more and I'm thinking of making them into a wreath for Halloween.

30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Eye Ball Door Knob Cover - With Pattern. on: August 11, 2007 07:40:14 PM
I saw a painted rubber one like this last year, when I was looking for Halloween decorations.  I wasn't about to pay $20 for something that looked like it would rip if it was grabbed too hard.  So, I made one!  Here's my result....


The red lines are just sewn on.


This is asuming you know a little about using patterns.  I don't know how right this is, I'm that great at writing the patterns out.  But, here's hoping:

You'll need:
Whatever color you want your eye to be (e.x.: blue, green, brown)
Red crochet or embroider thread
A needle with an eye big enoug for your thread

1. (I used a 'Magic Ring') Ch. 2, 5sc in second ch. from hook.  Join with Sl St.  Fo.

1. 2Sc in each around.  Twice.  Join with Sl St.  Fo.

Join to green.
1. 2Sc in each around.
2 1Sc, 1Sc, 2Sc repeat around.
3. 1Sc, 1Sc, 1Sc, 2Sc repeat around.
4. Dec, 1Sc, 1Sc repeat around.  Twice.  -After this round, do a fitting on your door knob to make sure it fits ok.  I'll be a little smaller when you finish the next step.
5. 1Sc in each around.  Reapeat this round untill it's long enough for your door knob.

You want it to be pretty tight.  It should take a little work to get onto your door knob.  If it's any looser, it'll slide around making it hard to open the door and even come off.  It will also take a few tries to get it on the door knob untill you get used to it.

Good luck.  I hope this works.
