31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first patchwork projects on: February 17, 2007 05:42:40 AM
I made this quilt for my mom. I was going to give it to her as some present, but it wasn't ready at the day I was going to to give it to her, so I promised to give it to her later. Then I had to move into a smaller apartment, and I didn't have enough room to make such a big project. I lived in that apartment almost three years, and moved into bigger apartment in January 2005 and finally finished the quilt next spring. Mom had already forgot I promised to make it to her, so it was a surprise to her.
This quilt is the biggest patch work/quilting project I've ever made. It's sewn and quilted with sewing machine. The small pillows on the bed are my first patch work experiments that I made maybe 10 years ago.
32  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Crazy quilt pillow with applique on: February 17, 2007 05:33:08 AM
Couple of years ago I wanted to try freehand machine embroidery and making a patchwork with a picture. So, I made this pillow case. I used crazy quilting as a background and appliqued houses, road etc. on it. The appletree is filled and apples are red wooden beads.
33  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sky at Night on: February 17, 2007 05:22:20 AM
I made this purse couple of years ago for my mom. I'm at her house and I was taking some photos, and decided to take pics of some of my older projects.
I call this purse Sky at Night. It's crazy quilted using black and dark blue scraps: leftover pieces and recycled scraps. I decorated it with beads, buttons, embroidery and ribbons. I embroidered different kinds of stars, but they don't show very well on the picture.
34  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt Challenge #1 Winter Pencil Case on: January 29, 2007 09:38:01 AM
I made a winter themed crazy quilt pencil case. When I started planning, it didn't look very wintery outside. Now the pencil case is finished, and it's cold and there's snow on the ground.

I used white and blue fabrics, beads, buttons, lace and embroidery. It's about 5" x 9".

35  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pencil Case and Bag with Bobbin Lace on: December 19, 2006 01:04:19 PM
This pencil case is a Christmas present to my sister. The red fabric is strong cotton and the bobbin lace butterfly is linen.

Rest of her gift: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=140431.0

Her birthday present last spring was this bag, and I wanted to make a matching pencil case now. Bag is made of same cotton fabric as pencil case and bobbin lace donkey is made of unbleached and black linen. It's big enough to be used as school bag, or at least in university where you don't have to carry many books.
36  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Crochet Hook and Knitting Pin Case on: December 19, 2006 12:50:31 PM
My sister knits a lot, so I decided to sew her a case for her pins. Outside is quilted.

Inside there is pockets for different knitting pins and crochet hooks. Numbered pockets are for sock pins. I made some smaller pockets for scissors, stitch marks, measuring tape and other small things. The pin size measuring thing goes with the case, other things are mine.

I'm going to give the present in this bag. With the case there'll be a pencil case (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=140432.0) and knitting magazine. She can keep her knitting projects in the bag or use it as a gift bag later.

I made a quiltagami penguin, which was supposed to be sewn on the gift bag, but it was nicer without it, so I made this bag for my crochet projects.
37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I tried some traditional Finnish embroidery *UPDATE: More pics* on: November 28, 2006 12:27:45 PM
I haven't embroidered much, some details on my crazy quilt projects, but nothing big. This autumn I went to a course, where we were taught Finnish traditional embroidery techniques.
In west parts of Finland they used to make embroidered wool blankets. I wanted to start with a smaller project and made this pillow. The fabric is from an old wool coat that I bought from a second hand shop and the embroidery yarns are new wool yarns that my mom has dyed with plants and mushrooms.

Close up:

Chain stitches go around the pillow. I don't know name of the other stitch, but in Finnish it's called "bush stitch". There are tassels on every corner.

Signature on the back. HV is same as FU, but they're my initials too.
38  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Two Solomon's knot scarves on: November 28, 2006 12:21:21 PM
These two scarves are Christmas presents that I've made. Ive crocheted Solomon's knot, I like the technique very much, because it's so easy and fast, and the finished project looks good.

And here's a close up of the green scarf.
39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / This year's Holiday cards. on: November 28, 2006 12:08:58 PM
Here are my hand made Holiday cards. Most of them are iris folded like these:

And I also made few 3D-cards:

My cards have never been ready this early. I'm actually surprised that I've finished all the cards I want to send and have two extra cards too.
40  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: your fave vegetarian recipes? pref dairy free too.... on: November 13, 2006 05:27:49 AM
We eat veggie balls/loaf pretty often. I don't have a exact recipe, sorry, but this is how I make them.

beans or peas (about 4-5dl)
chopped onion and garlic
grated carrots or other vegetables
some wheat and potato flour
vegetable oil
(bread grumps)
spices (soy sauce, herbs, cummin, something else)
(sesame seeds or crushed nuts)

Smash the beans and mix all the ingredients and add water if needed. Make balls or whatever you like, it should be easy, if it's not, add some flour. Bake in the 225 Celsius degrees until they look ready. Eat with smashed potatoes or pita bread, for example.
