Some of last weeks projects....

This is a cute shrug I'm working on for a lady... she's singing in a wedding and wanted a red velvet jacket/shrug to go over her black dress. I finished the shrug, but it looked so plain. So my little knitting machine whipped up this "trim" of yarn to go around the edges.
Gives the jacket that "something" extra!

So my mom has got me on the weaving band wagon! I went to her house Thurs day and she showed me how to use it... She now has one of those huge looms to work on... so she didn't mind me borrowing this one.

Its really fun! I didn't think I would like it when I first saw her weaving ... I was like "there's no buttons to push! its not electric! it'll take to much time!" But it weaves up fast and easy! The hardest, most time consuming part was warping it... its faster than knitting!! Well, faster than my knitting!
Below you can see I'm making a scarf... a U.T. scarf for the Bald Man... yes, the Vols suck this year, but the Bald Man is a loyal fan!

Though I still eat mostly raw foods... we do love our soups so cooking is in order... soups are the Bald Man's favorite food ever!
Here's a soup recipe I made up last week.. its creamy delish!
Almond Cream Tomato Soup

6 Large Ripe tomatoes/ quartered
1 red bell pepper/ chopped
1 large yellow/sweet onion/ diced
1/4 cup oil
3 TBLS citrus salt
1 tsb celery seeds
3 tbls basil
1 tbls white pepper
3/4 cup almond milk
Saute the onions in the oil for about 10 minutes. Add spices, tomatoes and bell pepper. Cook until soft. Puree' in the blender with almond milk

In other sew news... I have completed the blazer... the yoda blazer! Its hideous!!! But my man likes it... and it counts for a major Christmas present... esp. since I was so tortured making it!
Pics of it soon.. though it pains me to blog about it because its so ugly.... I am, however, proud that I made a Man's Blazer!!!! and it wasn't near as hard as I thought it would be!!
