1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Grim! on: December 26, 2012 02:33:17 PM
I recently made this for the Winter Semester of the HP Craftalong. I was just so happy with it that I wanted to post it here as well.
This is my first project post since I joined Craftster over a year ago. =)



I wanted to recreate what Harry sees in his teacup in the third book/movie. Reference image http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/File:Tea_leaves_1.jpg Obviously I took some artistic license with it but that's what makes it mine.

I used off-white felt, two colors of embroidery floss (dark gray and black) and a 4" embroidery hoop. The edge is colored with a gold paint pen. The entire thing is done in French knots which I learned for this project and had a lot of practice with too!

Hope you enjoy. Q&C welcome!
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / What do do with sour grapes? on: September 24, 2011 06:49:51 AM
This past weekend I went apple picking at this awesome farm in Marlboro, NY. I ended up coming home with a whole variety of fruits and veggies including some plump juicy concord and red grapes. Being a good little girl, I didn't taste them before assuming that they would be as sweet and tasty as they were last year. When I got them home, I found them to be almost inedibly tart. I'm not really interested in using them in savory dishes, but does anyone know of any good grape recipes where it wouldn't matter if the grapes are sour? I'm already considering making some fruit leather, but something a little more dessert-y might be nice too.
