Project Name: Sugar-free Strawberry Jam

Brief Description: It felt like this would never be done - my recipe said it would cook in 30 minutes, but I ended up boiling it for two hours trying to get the jell set! I'm still not completely satisfied with the consistency, but I was ready to be DONE.

Project Name: Strawberry Vanilla Sherbet
Project Link: https://brooklynsupper.com/vanilla-bean-strawberry-sherbet/#more-11667
Brief Description: I needed a steady hand to transfer this mixture to my ice cream maker - you have to pour it in while the mixer is turning, otherwise it will freeze instantly to the sides and the blade will jam. And pay attention to timing so you don't over-whip the cream, or let the ice cream maker run too long!
Project Picture: Pictured is one batch ready for the ice cream maker, and one batch done and frozen.

That landscape is amazingly lush, and I just love all the different stitches and textures.

Check out the fabulous fishy hoop that roler sent me! She checked more than one of my themes, including rainbow, shades of blue, and aquatic creatures.



Honestly this just makes me so happy to look at! <3 I love the cheery colors and the way they fit together is very satisfying. roler sent a picture of the art that inspired the piece:



I like mine better!  Grin I keep switching which fish is my favorite - sometimes it's the tiny fat yellow one, or the beaded blue, or the red with the sparkly button eye. Thank you again roler!

4  Simple lemon strawberry cake in Dessert by Acadian Driftwood on: June 26, 2017 04:11:53 PM
This isn't my recipe, but it was so delicious and pretty that I had to share it with y'all! Here's where I found it, and I followed the recipe except for using less sugar to toss the strawberries. http://prettysimplesweet.com/strawberry-cake/



The secret to the showstopping look of the cake it laying the cut berries out on top, and then the batter rises all around them.





I served it with fresh whipped cream and a big fresh berry along side.

6  Subway map of Osaka, Japan in Needlework: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: June 21, 2017 04:45:13 PM
roler always inspires me to embroider the most seemingly obscure things that I end up really loving! Last time it was a moray eel, and this time I reproduced the subway map for Osaka. It was sent in the Filled Stitchy swap.



The main lines are all heavy chain stitch, which gave a nice dimensional look. Each stop on the line is represented with a white seed bead. The background blue lines are other railways that aren't the main city ones.



The satin stitch kanji says "Osaka" and is framed in some floral doodles.



Thanks roler for swapping with me - this is one of my favorite pieces ever!

8  Ferret Fun House in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: June 18, 2017 05:20:24 PM


Our ferrets Lea and Coconut live in a large multi-level cage, but they get a few hours of free-roaming time in the house each day. I created this play house from cardboard with many little tubes going in and out.

First I taped up the boxes, and two of the little tubes, and cut holes where they would all exit.



Then came hot glue mania, where I glued on some stash fabric cut from old sheets and made sure all the tubes still fit.



And still more hot glue for the fabric on each tube, and gluing them all in place. The horizontal exits all got little fabric flaps.  As you can see, it's being thoroughly enjoyed.







Say "bye" Coconut!
