4  Christening Blanket for my nephew in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: July 06, 2017 08:12:27 AM
My newest nephew was born on the best day of the year, June 7th.  Why is that the best day???  Because it's also MY birthday!  He decided to make his entrance 20 days early but I think it's because he wanted to share this special day with his auntie (a girl can dream, right?!?)
Anywho, his Christening is September 8th so I made him a blanket, it's a little over 2 feet on each side (1 side is longer) so it should be perfect for swaddling him.

I saw this pattern on etsy and it was $8 and since I'm a cheapskate I reverse engineered it and made it my own. 
Hope you like it!

6  Cannoli dip with pizzeles (recipes inside) in Dessert by bethntim on: June 30, 2017 05:40:36 AM
Cannoli dip is the greatest thing since sliced bread!  And since bossman signs my check and requested it for his birthday I obliged.  Paired with pizzelles, it's the perfect treat!

Cannoli dip recipe:

1 package cheese cloth
1-30 oz. container ricotta cheese (for the love of all things holy don't get reduced fat)
2-8 oz. packages cream cheese (see above for full fat recommendation)
3 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-12 oz. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Fold cheesecloth in quarters and dump ricotta onto cheesecloth and wrap, fold over again and wrap in paper towels.  Place a heavy object on top (I used a cast iron skillet) to squeeze out the water from the ricotta.  Check and replace paper towels as they become soaked.

Cream cheeses together, add powdered sugar and vanilla, fold in chocolate chips

Refrigerate at least 1 hour (overnight preferably)

Goes great with pizzeles...
the only caveat is you have to have a pizzele maker for this recipe.  Don't have one?  Fear not!  This dip goes great with graham crackers.
1 pizzelle press

6 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 lb. (2 sticks) melted butter
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons vanilla (or anise)
Beat eggs and sugar, gradually add melted butter.  Add vanilla, salt, baking powder, and flour.  Dough will be thick.
Spoon 1 tablespoon onto heated and greased pizzelle press.  Cook 1 minute, remove from press by sliding butter knife along edges and remove carefully (WILL BE HOT)
Let cool, or wrap around cone if you wish to have them shaped.

Apologies if the pics are sideways, they look right side up in my world Smiley

9  Make Your Own French Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bethntim on: May 07, 2017 08:38:04 AM
I have a HUGE dead space behind me desk at work so I needed something to fill the void
I had an old cork board that was headed for the trash so I decided to refurbish it into something beautiful and useful

Gather your supplies

(1) cork board
1 yard of batting (like what goes between quilt layers)
1 yard of main fabric
2 spools of 1/4" wide ribbon
Staple gun (make sure you have staples so you're not running out at midnight)
I got everything on clearance so it was SUPER cheap

1.  press fabric and lay right side down
2.  lay batting on top of fabric
3.  lay cork board right side down on top of fabric and batting

4.  starting at the corners staple through both layers of fabric securing tightly to the board.  Hold the fabric taut so there's no slack

5.  move to the long edges stapling every couple of inches
6.  trim off excess fabric and attach hanging hardware

VOILA!  Fill it with pics of your favorite people!
Apologies if the pics are upside down, I tried editing them but am a'feared I failed miserable

10  Crocheting for baby.... is it safe? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by bethntim on: April 18, 2017 10:29:02 AM
I have a new niece or nephew due in June (hooray!) and I wanted to crochet a bassinet with handles similar to this one

but I didn't know how safe it would be for the baby to sleep in
Also do I make a removable pad for the bottom for some extra cushion and if so, what are the guidelines for doing so for a baby?
Has anyone made anything similar or can lead me in the right direction.

Or....should I just scrap the idea and stick with blankets and loveys for the newest little pooper?
