Making Dala - A Journey

P1110600

Making Dala has been a journey - a journey filled with learning new skills, wrong turns, flashes of insight, mistakes and successes.

Dala was a challenge and it is the overcoming of that challenge and what I learned along the way that I am sharing here. It is a long post. It really is. In fact - you might consider it a free e-book! But hopefully, anyone wanting to make stuffed toys be they Dala's or frogs, will find it and the resources within useful.

Journals are not my thing. I have nothing at all against journals, I just never in a million years would have thought I would be making journals.

But I am now! And aren't they beautiful?  Can't wait to begin using them!

Celebrating Midsummer - Margit's Story

Open! Open! Open!

Please! Please! Please!

All the demanding and pleading I have done these past few days have been to no avail. This little pea flower refuses to open in time for Midsummer. It is probably waiting for something called sunshine!

I have a whole garden bursting with blossoms - why do I care so much about my sweet peas?

Creamy Luscious Strawberry Cream Pie

Strawberry Cream Pie! My most favorite way to eat strawberries and yet, can you believe it, I haven't made one in years?

I don't have a clue where I originally found this recipe but it was found a long, long time ago - in the olden days when I would transfer every new recipe I tried and liked to a recipe card and never thought to write down where I found it.
