We have been extremely busy the last year building a new house. I haven’t had much time for crafts let alone updating this blog. However, a friend just had a baby and I just had to knit the babygirl a little something.
Knitting felt so good that I might have to knit something else, too. And maybe keep this blog updated, too!
New Year’s Day is perfect for slow cooking.
Pulled pork burgers and a polka dot cheesecake. Utterly satisfying.
We’ve had an extremely warm and rainy winter, and there is no snow on the ground. But I’m saying “Let it snow!”
Place some marshmallows through a popsicle stick and decorate. So cute and so much fun!
It is definitely getting chillier here and my girlie needed a new, warmer beanie. I let her pick the fabric and she loves her new hat!
Cotton velour from Kangastukku, ribbon from a local crafts store.
Lassi loves jumpsuits. I thought that it’d be fun to let him choose the fabric for a new one. He chose black and white cotton velour and the jumpsuit turned out pretty nicely!
Star velour is from Selia. I made a pair of pants out of it a couple years ago and the rest has been sitting in my stash ever since. Black velour from Kangastukku.
Have a great week!
Cream cheese buns, fresh from the oven.
The weather is definitely getting colder so we’ve been making soups later. Soups are comfort food #1 in my house.
I had picked up some mushrooms earlier, so I made cream of mushroom soup today. So totally, utterly satisfying.
It’s September again. Nights are getting darker up here so it’s definitely time for candles.
Tealights, washi tape and a pair of scissors.
Aren’t they cute?!?
Pretty, pretty candle light!
Super easy: combine miniature marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate (I used M&M’s). Kids love it!
Fairly quick to prepare, extremely delicious! A new family favorite: parmesan chicken manicotti.
