3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Does homemade jelly save you money? Who cares! Its delicious. on: August 02, 2010 06:04:35 PM
We actually just moved from Abilene a couple of months ago and I really miss the Drug Emporium. I've never heard of pomegranate jam, but that sounds wicked good. I really need to learn how to can so I can start making all these wonderful things. I've noticed that jelly seems to be a lot sweeter than jams, or maybe that's just because of the flavors of each that I have eaten. I prefer jams because they aren't as sweet to me and they have more of a "real fruit" flavor.

I finally got around to making my daughter a quilt. It is simple and light-weight and my daughter absolutely loves it. I used yellow gingham? pattern, multi-colored stars on a sky-like background and nintendo fabric for the front and a soft green flannel for the back. Daddy helped pick out the fabric and once he saw the nintendo fabric I knew we'd be buying it : )

here it is in all its wrinkled glory (I did iron it during the process, not sure how it got so wrinkled again):

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / boring laptop protective sleeve skullified on: July 21, 2010 03:03:59 PM
my brother got a new laptop and I wanted to get him a cool protective cover for it. the problem was that they were all boring or girlie, but the store had these plain black ones super cheap ($5 if I remember right) and figured that was cheaper than buying the padding and zipper so I got that and some skull fabric & matching ribbon and decorated it.
please excuse the mess, it's sitting on my fabric bucket

the front: I glued the fabric on and put the ribbon on to "clean up" the edges. it looked a bit dull like that so I cut out some skulls with pinking shears and glued them on at different angles

the back: I had some skulls left over so I put a couple on the back as well

thanks for looking
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / matching adult and toddler beach towels on: July 21, 2010 01:35:10 PM
Now that we are finally near water that is safe and pleasant to swim in, we needed some beach towels. The problem was that my husband absolutely hated every single design in the store and I hated how expensive they were. So I came up with the idea of making some from regular towels. He got to pick out the color and design, which made him happy and they were a lot cheaper this way so I was happy. As a bonus, our daughter can have a matching towel of her own. We got 3 regular sized bath towels (2 solid and 1 stripe) for ours and 1 of each color of hand towels for hers. I cut the striped towels in half and sewed them onto the solid towels. Unfortunately they unravel very very easily so no matter what stitch I seemed to use it wasn't enough to securely hold them together so I added the ribbon. That solved the problem and added a nice touch to the look. They end up being super long but I love it because it can completely and securely wrap around me, my husband likes it because it gives you plenty of room to lay stuff either at your feet or above your head if you are using it to lay on.

here is my towel with my daughter's folded on top
