11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sweatpants, Sweat shirt become a skirt on: May 31, 2010 07:20:01 PM
I didn't take before pictures but a few years back I bought a white sweatshirt and also a navy sweatshirt from the college I was attending.  I didn't want them anymore and decided to use them to make a skirt.  I cut out the 93 for both sides and sewed them on.

Comments are welcomed

12  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sweet and Spicy on: May 31, 2010 01:56:59 PM

This is my colorful creation.  Its hot, sweet, spicy and fun.

1pkg skinless polish Kielbosa, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced thin
1 orange pepper, sliced thin
2 red peppers,sliced thin
1 yellow onion
1 box bow tie pasta
1 tbsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp black pepper
Vegetable broth

I usually slice the peppers and onion, and cook them in the skillet with olive oil, so that they can soften.  I also put on the noodles to boil.    I add the kielbosa to the mixture and slightly brown them.  I add enough vegetable broth to cover the mixture, crushed red pepper and black pepper, and then turn down the burner so that it can simmer and cook the broth down a bit.  It is good to leave some broth in the mixture before mixing with the noodles.  When the noodles are finished, I drain them and then add the mixture and serve.  I am usually cooking for 6 to 8 people. 
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Steampunk and burlesque fun on: May 31, 2010 01:15:29 PM
I made this skirt a month ago to wear to a burlesque cabaret.  It is kind of a steampunk look.  I took a pair of gray dress pants to make the top of the skirt.  The pants legs were stretchy so I didn't need to use a zipper.  The bottom is made of some cream pinstripe silk.  I bunched it up in different areas.  Added some black ribbon bows.  

It isn't the best picture.  My cats broke my camera so I had a friend take it while we were out and unfortunately there was someone else's heat in the shot...lol but I will put up other and better pics of the skirt soon.

Here is a better pic

This is my first post.  I made this skirt about a month ago to wear to a Caberet Burlesque show.  It was a couple of hours before and I wanted something fun yet sexy to wear.  I can't post pictures yet so here is the link to see it.

I used grey dress slack materal for the top and some cream pinstripe silk to make the bottom.  I kind of bunched up the bottom and added a couple strips of black ribbon to make bows.
