1  Recently completed blankets in Crochet: Completed Projects by photojenn on: December 11, 2016 06:53:16 PM
Here are 2 of my recently completed blankets.  Both were done as part of CALs over the last couple months and will be Christmas gifts.  I'm still a relatively new crocheter (about 18 months) so I learned a lot doing these two blankets (standing stitches, front/back post stitches, surface stitches, etc).  I'm really happy with how they both turned out.  Smiley  

This one is called Demelza

And this is the Sunshine Owl

There are more pictures/details on my Ravelry project pages.  Thanks for looking!

I haven't done much amigurumi but I have a co-worker who's last day is Friday and I wanted to make him something special (he loves beets).  I made this little guy in a couple hours and I'm really happy with how it turned out!  Smiley

Here's the link to the patten I used - http://www.nyanpon.com/2012/08/beet.html?m=1

3  Chickpea cutlets with herb scalloped potatoes and pan roasted broccoli (Vegan) in Vegetarian / Vegan by photojenn on: June 29, 2016 05:47:54 AM
I have a mild obsession with vegan cookbooks, so over the weekend I pulled out an old favorite - Veganomicon

I made the Chickpea Cutlets (oven roasted instead of pan fried and pictured with some dijon mustard on top), Herb Scalloped Potatoes (I substituted lots of fresh rosemary, thyme and basil for the dried herbs) and did some pan roasted broccoli on the side.  It was so good and my mouth is watering just thinking about it  Cheesy

4  Harmony Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by photojenn on: February 20, 2016 11:26:15 AM
I finally finished my Attic24 "Harmony Blanket".  I had a lot of fun making this blanket even though there were over 1100 ends to weave in  Shocked  Since this was my first time doing granny squares and there were so many of them to do (126), I decided to tackle this blanket "assembly line" style and did all of the centers, followed by all of the second rows, etc. 

You can see the progress pictures on my Ravelry project page

I wanted to make ornaments for my family this year so I decided to give crochet snowflakes a try.  These have been the most technical crochet project I've worked on so far and I'm really happy with the results!  Smiley Most of the patterns are from 100 Snowflakes to Crochet

6  Cosy Stripe Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by photojenn on: November 05, 2015 05:00:39 AM
I found this pattern on Attic24's blog and fell in love with it so I had to make it Smiley.  This was only my second ever crochet project and I'm really happy with how it turned out (even if it is a slight trapezoid instead of a rectangle Smiley).  It's one of my favorite things that I've made so far Smiley

7  Christmas coasters in Completed Projects by photojenn on: November 30, 2014 04:18:22 PM
I wanted something to brighten up the coffee table so I whiped these up quick this afternoon.  They're super easy to make - cut 4 1/2" squares of fabric and heavy interfacing and sew together - and they add the Christmas cheer I was looking for Smiley

8  Quick lap quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by photojenn on: November 23, 2014 06:18:49 PM
I finished this a few months ago and it has become one of my cats favorite sleeping spot Cheesy. This is my second quilt so I was scared to do anything too crazy with the quilting so I went with straight* lines.


*I was sewing pretty fast so they weren't as straight as they could have been.

9  Favorite vegan recipes? in Vegetarian / Vegan by photojenn on: July 06, 2014 10:03:25 AM
As a long time vegan, I am constantly trying new recipes and always on the lookout for new things to make!  What are some of your favorite vegan recipes??

Here are some of my favorites:

Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy from Vegan With a Vengeance - this is my goto gravy and is amazing with biscuits

Sweet Chili Lemon Tofu with Wok Steamed Kale and Quinoa - This is quick to make (I just throw the quinoa in the rice cooker so I don't have to worry about it) and delicious.

Pho - This took a while to make but was totally worth it.

One of my recent obsessions has been a modified version of this recipe for making a quick tomato sauce to go with zoodles (zucchini noodles) http://www.fromforkstofitness.com/recipes/zucchini-noodles-zoodles/

10  My First Quilt! (Disappearing 9 Patch) in Quilting: Completed Projects by photojenn on: March 30, 2014 10:18:58 AM
I started this quilt back in January and just finished hand stitching the binding this morning. Grin  It's hard to believe that it started off as 315 4.5"x4.5" squares!  The finished quilt measures just under 7'x5'.  I felt like the quilt top itself was loud enough so I just went with the same chocolate brown from the small squares for the back and the binding.

Since it was my first time quilting anything larger than a knitting needle roll, I decided to do straight lines that followed the pattern of the quilt top for the actual quilting part.  Here's a close up where you can see the quilting lines.

Overall I'm extremely happy with how it turned out but will definitely be making something a bit smaller for my next quilt  Cheesy

Here's an awesome tutorial MareMare did on how to make a Disappearing 9 Patch quilt top - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422253.0#axzz2xT0UpfHH
