1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunny Rabbit Finger Puppets! on: April 11, 2010 05:12:27 PM
I made 6 of these finger puppets for my friend's kids!! The tutorial is from the Purl Bee and can be found here: http://www.purlbee.com/bunny-finger-puppets/ 

They were fun to make! Super Easy, but a bit time consuming!!!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Patchwork Basket on: June 05, 2008 03:31:50 PM
I love this fabric basket tutorial from the pink penguin (http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/05/tutorial-fabric-basket.html). I'm so impressed!

I made this basket as a gift based on the tutorial.

i also dyed the yarn in the basket and grew the basil. but the basket is the fun part. it's small, but uses very little fabric!

4  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Craft The Vote! / vote now! vote meow! on: April 16, 2008 12:18:33 AM

i work at a record store (www.meowrecords.ca) and we're currently in the running to be named the best independent record store in CANADA! (you can check out the details at radio3.cbc.ca) so i made a shirt to raise awareness and also to raise money for the spca.

i cut out letters free hand from fabrics and felt lying around in my stash and then got the super hott miss #13 from the girls of meow records calendar to pose!

i've been on ravelry and knitting a lot but as it gets warmer my sewing machine is coming out and while this didn't take all that much work, i'm so proud that i didn't knit it!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cozy landscape mitts and scarf *IMG HEAVY* on: November 29, 2007 09:38:11 PM
i picked up the noro spring garden stuff with all the mohair. it was quite a big skein (double sized i think) and it made three pairs of armwarmers (2 short, one long) and a four foot scarf! yay!

this is emily ali of RADducttapeandhemp. she rocked it for me.

and these are the two different sides. the colour variations are SO gorgeous.

xoxo di.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / bamboo yarn washability? on: November 08, 2007 01:55:42 PM

xoxo diandra.
7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / first snow curry (vegan) on: November 05, 2007 08:00:05 PM
it snowed a few days ago and i've taken the task of cancelling all my plans and beginning to burrow/nest for the winter.  this has involved the consuming of tea/cookies infront of movies (and knitting), tidying, and well, cooking! this curry comes to you in celebration of the few inches of permanent snow on the ground and the warmth brought about by the new iron and wine album! so good!

anyway, almost all of the vegetables are from the veggie box i get at my uni through the p!rg group on campus every week ($20 organic veggie box, nice!) we haven't consumed it yet, but my eyes are burning from the onions and the house smells like curry! yum! so enjoy!

chop and sautee in a bit of oil/water (on med-high):
3 cippolini onions, chopped (can substitute with red onions or shallots)
8 small All blue potatoes, chopped

stir until onions are browning, add water the minute it smells like it's heading to burning territory.  once you add the water stir in one honkin' large tablespoon of yellow curry paste.  add 1.5 tablespoons cumin and 1 tsp salt. stir and maintain heat.

add 1/2 cauliflower separated into med sized florets. stir to coat with curry/water base.

add 1 can chunky coconut milk. smash up the coconut bits and stir well.

add 2 fuji/gala apples, chopped, stir. reduce heat to just below medium (so it can simma)

add 1 large handful fresh spinach on top of the curry, dont stir (you want it to steam off the top of the curry).

after 10 minutes or so, stir the spinach in. cook on med-low until your veggies reach the consistancy that you like to eat.  IF there is too much liquid and you'd prefer a sauce, mix up some corn starch with water and pour in to thicken.

we serve this over short grain brown rice (my favourite, and the most wholesome really) and with yoghurt (we have lemon mediterranean yoghurt) and pumpkin seeds. yum!

*substitution note: if you are NOT using the blue potatoes but a softer potato, add them in with the cauliflower b/c they wont hold their shape like the little blue ones!

*poverty note: i know that this sounds expensive to make, but rest assurred, it's not that expensive, really.  the veggies probably cost a total of $5, the rice $1, the paste was $3 (and makes around 16 curries), and the coconut milk, because we bought it in a bulk order was $1.25. it makes two full dinner meals and lunch for the next day (or a container for the freezer).

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / garlic lover pouch ;) on: August 14, 2007 10:13:41 PM
tonight we went canning at a friend's abode (yay pickles) and i made this pouch from pants/shirt that my friend bestowed upon me as i was running out the door screaming, "i have to go make pouches". sorry for the k-rappy pictures Smiley xoxo

p.s. it's grandpa pants on the outside and man's plaid shirt on the inside. the zipper was thrifted and i handpainted the image.
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / economic history of canada on: August 07, 2007 11:38:00 AM
so, this *could* go in paper crafts, but i'm treating it as more art, less craft..ANd it's on canvas. my new favourite medium is modge podge on canvas. i'm still having problems with bubbling (too much glue?) but like the rusticness of it! the images are from encyclopedias and art-punk-skate magazines. they evoke the economic history of canada! yaya!
