Some 2011 Christmas Gifts

DSCF0003Lotus Bags used as project bags. Just perfect for a pair of socks. The Christmas one has a pocket sewn onto the lining.


I made these for John & Linda:

The coasters are from Holiday Mystery Gifts. A “Pretty Maid” made with Coral Reef kitchen cotton cone from Wal*Mart. The Star Stitch Hand Towel is also in the same yarn.

And I made some angel ornaments for Miss L & Mr. B:

Hubby takes his lunch to work and is always trying to think of something new. I am making him some Pasties using some Honey Wheat Roll dough made in the bread maker and the following filling:

  • 1 pound ground venison
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1/2 head cabbage, shredded
  • to taste: salt, pepper, onion powder, cayenne, worchestershire sauce

Brown venison, add onion. When meat is brown & onions are soft, add the carrot, cabbage and seasonings. Let simmer/steam, stirring occasionally, until dough is done.

Punch down dough and divide into 12 pieces. Press out to about 4 inch round or rectangle. Fill with about 1/4 cup meat mixture. Fold over, sealing edges with fork & pricking some holes on top. Place on a cookie sheet, cover with clean towel & let rise about 1/2 hour.

Preheat oven to 350. Brush egg wash (egg & water beaten together) and bake for about 15 mins until pies are brown.
