Thanks everyone! I had a great time decorating it, but it really took a LONG time! I had to place each rhinestone individually, both around the edge of the cap and the sorority letters, and then hot glue them. I'm getting ready to put the cap, my stole, and my honor cord in a shadow box though! I'm excited to have it on my wall after all my hard work on it!

I found the wheat bread!

In the recipe, I substituted wheat flour (king arthur's) for all flour called for, and I also substituted oatmeal for cracked wheat. It was just too expensive at safeway to buy cracked wheat and I couldn't bring myself to do it on my first loaf of bread.

I was able to find the baguette recipe easily, so here it is:

Haha showing this shows how little my baguettes look like everyone elses, but oh well. They are still tasty. I added about a tbsp each of rosemary and thyme finely chopped, so those flavors are there, but not overwhelming. And as far as the glaze, it was a simple egg wash, although I'm considering using much less of it next time: they were not very crispy at all.  Undecided

I will continue searching for the recipe for the wheat bread I made!

One of my latest hobbies is cooking with as many fresh and basic ingredients as possible. I decided I HAD to try making bread, and my first two attempts were successful! Both recipes were found in a general search on allrecipes.com, and if anyone is interested, I can track down the link to them. Smiley First I made 3 loaves of plain wheat bread. Even my super picky boyfriend loved it!

The second experiment was a baguette recipe. I adapted it and threw in some fresh rosemary and thyme from my garden, and this was the en result:

It turned out so tasty! I will be making bruschetta with that tomorrow!
If anyone has any tips, I would LOVE to hear them! This is a completely new experiment for me, and any help is appreciated!
Thanks for reading!
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gardening "Apron" on: July 08, 2011 02:06:51 AM
I made this gardening "apron" for my Mom for Mother's Day. I use quotes because it is an old pair of jeans that I cut up and did minimal sewing to turn it into an apron. She loves having the pockets on the front!

^^ My beautiful Mother modeling her gift. :-)
I made this for her because, later that day, we planted an ENTIRE GARDEN in her front yard (although my brother and myself did most of the work). One thing we planted were day lilies, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post a picture of them!

Thanks for reading!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Tie-Dye onesie on: July 08, 2011 02:02:53 AM
This isn't anything too impressive, but I was really happy with how it turned out! At a baby shower for my soon-arriving niece, everyone decorated onesies, and this was one that I made (although I couldn't contain myself from making 5 more!)

I just free-handed with the tie-dye in the bottles and let it dry flat.
Thanks for looking!
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Completed Graduation Cap on: July 08, 2011 02:00:16 AM
I made this cap for my graduation from Sacramento State, and it turned out to be a big hit within my major! I hope you like it!
