Christmas Stockings!? What?

P1100362

I found a free pattern on WEBS recently for a Christmas Stocking and decided to knit it for the Christmas Stocking giveaway in December.

Including a practice swatch to satisfy myself that the pattern really would work with all those slipped stitches, this is my progress so far!

Trust me, the stitches are much straighter than they appear in places.

Playing Around with Beautiful Brown Eggs for Easter

I've been playing around with brown eggs this week!

Having never even considered using brown eggs at Easter, I was more than a little apprehensive last year when I learned that Sophia and Antonio had been dying brown eggs for Easter.

Turns out - brown eggs are beautiful when dyed and tomorrow I will show you Sophia's and Antonio's tricks!

Today, however, I wanted to share some beautiful brown eggs I have been playing around with - revisiting techniques I have used in the past and some great ideas from fellow bloggers.

Ribbon Sandwiches - Perfect for Easter

When I was a kid and my mother made these little Ribbon Sandwiches - which she did every year for the church circle Mother's Day Tea - I was in heaven when she finally pulled the chilling loaves from the fridge and sliced off the crusts.

You see - we kids got to eat the crusts and the bits of those yummy fillings still clinging to them! We weren't allowed to have any of the perfect ones because they were for the tea. But that was just fine with us. The "reject" crusts were just as good.

What am I saying? I think almost everything she does is really cool!

What is she doing? Taking the road less traveled and embarking on a journey that will hopefully lead to a more sustainable solution for all bloggers trying to make a living from their crafty and artistic endeavors.

I don't get out much - in the blogisphere that is!  By that I mean, I don't surf or just wander about seeing what there is to see. I tend to be a very destination driven person.

My filtering system is highly developed to the point I never see an ad and really have to make a concerted effort to notice side bar information.
