Pin It Tuesday: Crochet

If you remember from last week, I love crocheting. I love the satisfaction of creating something with my own hands. It is so rewarding. My grandma taught me how to crochet simple hot pad holders, such as these-



They are just about the easiest things to crochet. I stuck with these for a few years. I believe she never had to make another one, and still has new ones to use from this time span! I then moved onto afghans-



Nothing like this one, however isn't that a beautiful pattern? I then started experimenting with fun yarn thicknesses. I made everyone baby blankets and ended up giving a lot to charity. I then found amigurumi. By definition it means
crocheted or knitted stuffed toy is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures.
In other words, ridiculously cute little crocheted creatures that serve almost no purpose unless you are a child. So I must share with you the cuteness pinterest has to offer in the world of amigurumi.





In case you are wanting to learn how to create these awesome little creatures, here is a wonderful tutorial.




Now, these aren't amigurumi, but they are just awesome enough I can't keep them to myself!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?




How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.




How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.

Ingredients:

-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
