11  Another Necklace/tie in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: November 30, 2011 09:05:35 AM

I made another necklace thing. A little different style.
I am having a little trouble sewing the button holes. If anyone has some tips or tutes on sewing perfect button holes, and not ripping out the stitches accidentally when cutting them open, I would appreciate any help.

I think this one could be really cool with the right outfit, my favorite old black tshirt doesn't really do silk justice.

12  Vintage tie recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: November 29, 2011 09:34:06 PM
I love old men'''s ties, but I never know what to do with them. So I came up with this. What do you think? too weird? or just weird enough to be cool.

13  So, I made even more Pickled Eggs! I'm obviously addicted. in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jeha on: November 24, 2011 08:52:34 PM

More pickled eggs!
I made some Thai pickled eggs, and some Moroccan pickled eggs.

The Moroccan spiced eggs were the best! So yummy, I used a spice mix called Ras el Hanout, it has a lot of spices cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, turmeric, to name a few.  Will definitely be making this recipe again as sadly we ate them all in one sitting
full recipe can be found on my blog

14  Knit hankerchief scarf, 2 hour present! in Knitting: Completed Projects by jeha on: November 21, 2011 01:03:54 PM
I knit this for my friend who moved to wisconsin. I needed it done fast so I chose this pattern from the book Last Minute knit gifts.

I love the way it turned out. I have decided to knit several more for xmas gifts. The book claims that this is a two hour project. It took me like four hours, I guess I am a slow knitter.
As usual I wrote more about it on my blog.

17  Ice cream made with homemade rice milk! in Vegetarian / Vegan by jeha on: September 21, 2011 09:06:44 AM
While reading my new book Ice Cream the Whole Scoop by Gail Damerow, I was intrigued by the Rice Cream section. The book explains how to make rice milk by soft cooking rice and blending it with water.  This rice milk can then be used in any ice cream recipe!  So I had to try it. Here are the results
Pandan Flavor

Chocolate Banana

They both turned out really good!

The recipes and a lot more info are on my blog.

18  Pontack Sauce great use for elderberries! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jeha on: September 16, 2011 11:51:27 AM
Came across this recipe in an English Preserving cookbook. Elderberries are ripe right now, so I am always looking for more ways to use them.  Mostly because I love foraging for food.  Here it is the pontack sauce. You are supposed to use it in gravy and on meats, kind of like a Worcestershire sauce.  It isn't really sweet at all. It is spiced and complex. Will be making this again next year.

For more info check out my blog.

19  wool beret style hat made from sweater! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: September 10, 2011 01:11:27 PM
I love hats, but I always feel like I don't look good in hats, so I am always on a quest for a new hat. I found this sweater at the thrift store and loved the colors hated the style.  Then I saw the tag said pure lambswool, I knew it was destined to be a hat.

here are the action photos, one to show the colors, the other to show the style. (my 7 year old is my photographer)

Please ignore my neglected garden in the background.
I posted a tute on my blog. If you are interested in making your own it was super easy, plus I still have a lot of sweater left to possibly make mittens.

What do you think is the hat for me or do I need to continue my quest?

20  Re: Unique Jean Skirt- Another reason to hoard old jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: September 08, 2011 12:04:29 PM
the front and back are pretty much the same, with seams at the sides.  I added darts in the back. I didn't do a very good job on those they are a little crooked.  Here are some action photos to give you a little better idea.

back, wow its hard to take a picture of your own butt

you can also see in the back I left the yolk thing on the waistband of the jeans so it would fit right in the back, no plumber butt.
