1  echino print chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by teachingjonah on: November 09, 2011 04:23:14 AM
I recently acquired an old chair from my late Grandmother's house.  It had been in her basement for quite awhile and it needed a lot of work, but after some cleaning and adding some new fabric it fits right into my living room. 
This echino fall 2011 print was great because the patchwork hides my poor sewing!

2  Log Cabin blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by teachingjonah on: March 29, 2011 04:31:08 AM
I'm still trying to use up a giant yarn stash, so I decided to make another blanket.  I didn't want to go with the typical granny square, so I decided to try a log cabin method instead.  I think it turned out alright.  I'm really happy just to be finished with it Smiley

3  crocheting some color into my life in Crochet: Completed Projects by teachingjonah on: December 05, 2010 03:47:18 PM
I was inspired by Attic24's blog to bring some color into my very beige living room.  I used her pattern to create a giant colorful granny stripe blanket that allowed my to use up a lot of my stash.   Then I needed a throw pillow to go with it Smiley  Most of the yarn is Caron's simply soft, but their are a few other brands thrown in here and there.

I chained 240 stitches with an I hook to get started.  It is really long!  Everyone in the family loves it, so I'm going to have to make another Smiley

4  Yummy Plum Butter in Recipes and Cooking Tips by teachingjonah on: September 11, 2010 03:09:32 PM
My family stopped by a local orchard to buy some apples and found they had some lovely stanley plums for sale.  They looked delicious, so I had to buy them, but I bought a 1/2 a peck.  Way to many for us to eat before they went bad.  I remembered seeing a plum butter recipe in Mary Jane Butters Farmgirl book.  I promptly found it and made the most delicious plum butter I have ever eaten.  Honestly, I have never eaten it before.  I do like it better than apple butter though.  It is made with just plums, sugar, water, lemon juice and five-spice powder.  Yumm!

5  little felt birds in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by teachingjonah on: September 11, 2010 02:58:33 PM
I made some little felt birds for Miss Alexz's wedding.  I based them off of Melissa Sue Stanley's birds, and while they aren't as cute as hers, they are cute.

6  Every boy should have a Hobbes in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by teachingjonah on: August 28, 2010 03:26:12 PM
I haven't crafted much at all during 2010.  I don't know why, but I just haven't felt the urge to make anything in awhile.  But, my son was turning 9 and he had been asking me to make him a Hobbes for awhile, so I decided to pick up my crochet hook and see what I could do. 
I really like how he turned out.  He took me two days to complete.  I was almost afraid to stop (since lately if I stop, I don't finish).  My son is thrilled with him and that makes me happy.

I hope you like him Smiley

8  Hello Dear in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by teachingjonah on: December 13, 2009 03:43:48 PM
I've had Elizabeth D.'s book for awhile and I've been wanting to make this deer for sometime.  I just needed a good reason, so since it was my mom's birthday  this weekend and she is quite the wildlife lover I decided this would be a great gift for her.  
The pattern worked up really quickly and I think the deer turned out quite wonderful.  I love how she stands on her own Smiley  

Enjoy and happy crafting Smiley

mummynat, you poppet is very sweet and adorable Smiley

I haven't made a poppet in awhile, but I had a request from my husband's coworker.  She wanted a gift for her mom for Christmas, so I agreed to make one.  I think she turned out pretty cute so I thought I'd share.

Her eyes are 15 mm and hand painted.  I've used this hair a couple of other times, and I like how it turns out everytime.
Happy crafting!

10  Monster bags in Crochet: Completed Projects by teachingjonah on: October 17, 2009 07:35:15 PM
I was perusing etsy the other day and came across djones' monster bag pattern and I thought they would make great Christmas presents for my nephews.  I've already made four and I have plans for at least one more.
