Making Fresh Pasta for the First Time

Dillon bought me a combination grinder/mincer/pasta maker for Christmas.  He knows that I have been wanting to try my hand at making my own sausages for a while and the one he bought for me also does pasta.  Since I don’t have any of the actual sausage casing…yet… I decided to try my hand at making fresh pasta!

My Singer Knitting Machine!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I took Boxing day off as an “On Strike” day, the same as I always do. I did nothing but sleep, read and feed Chris and Dillon leftovers lol.

Today however, I was playing with the Singer Knitting Machine that Chris got me  (because of a rather large hint) for Christmas.  I am having so much fun!

This is what it looks like out of the package, it even came with a couple of skeins of yarn to get started!

The first thing I made was a cute little baby hat! It took me about 15 minutes! 15 minutes!!!

And then I made a pair of socks.  If you have ever knit socks before you know how time consuming it can be.  I made this pair in a half hour! Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas next year lol?

I anticipate having a whole lot of fun with my new “toy!”

P.S. I also got a combination grinder/pasta maker/sausage stuffer, so stay tuned for recipes and ideas when I start “playing” with it!!!

Guitar Pick – Guitar Holder

This is another one of the wood crafts I am making for a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. This time I am making a guitar holder for him, shaped like a guitar pick.  Kim sent me a picture of something like this when I asked for suggestions.

Freezer Paper Transfer – Faux Vintage Coke Signs

Here is another one of those Freezer Paper Transfer crafts.  I thought it would be cute to take some dollar store wooden plaques and add old fashioned Coke logos to them for someone I know with a “diner” type kitchen décor!

I wanted them to end up looking sort of old and washed out but where you could still make out the actual logo.

Wood Dragon Cut Out Wall Hanging

I’m pretty sure I at least previewed this wall hanging in one of my previous posts but now it’s finally Finished!  And I am pretty happy with the results.  I hope my son-in-law likes it!

WIP for Christmas 

Seeing as I don’t have anything actually finished today, I thought I could at least show you what I’m up to!

I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but if not, I hate base painting.  I just want to jump into the fun part lol. But base painting does have to be done, so I generally try to do it all at once!

That’s what I’m doing today.  Or at least starting! I think this is about half of it!

I will try to get at least one thing done today to post tomorrow because tomorrow is Thursday, my new weekly appointment with the new specialist! 24 weeks worth 😔

This is what I’ve started!
