Project Name: Root Vegetable Hash

Project Link: n/a

Brief Description: While it took me 2 hours to chop and assemble this mix of radishes, parsnips, sweet potatoes, onions, and potatoes, the final product was 9 vacuum-sealed freezer-packs of READY MADE hash. I roasted the mixture and bagged it up in 1.5 cup portions. Now, I can easily pull one from the freezer crisp it up in a skillet and top it with a couple of eggs and breakfast is ready!

Mmmmm! Your gyros look delicious! And I can’t believe that’s your first cross stitch. It looks great! I’m jealous that you can work in the car. I get carsick if I don’t pay attention to the road, sadly. You’re very lucky to have that ability :blush:

aw thanks

I’d go nuts if I couldn’t do something in the car. our house to el paso is about 26 hours of driving. we’ve been doing it about every other month back & forth for the last 2 years.

Project Name: Patty Gold – Custom Monster High
Project Link: Monster High Custom Leprechaun
Brief Description: This is my first custom Monster High doll. It took a really long time. I rerooted her hair a while ago, but I hand sewed her outfit, made the accessories, and did her face-up over the last month. It was a labor of love and so nerve-wracking. I have always wanted to make one, so I am super excited to have actually completed her. She is full of mistakes, but I am trying to ignore them and remember she is my first doll. Overall, I am happy.
