The Great Soup Recipe Hunt is still on. Do you have a soup recipe you want to share, or are you looking for that perfect recipe, then check out my earlier post. I"m collecting homemade soup recipes to put in a binder for my parents. Dad has been told by his doctor he can't have canned soup anymore, too much sodium. Please add a link to your favourite recipe , or send it via private email to heatherdpear at hotmail dot com.
Did you ever have that moment of panic, you have the vacuum out and it gets a bit too close to your needlework project that is laying on the carpet. What would you do if the vacuum started to eat your yarn? Oops, that happened this morning with tragic results. OK, only tragic for the yarn.
There is a surprising amount of yarn wrapped in there and I was very quick at pressing stop.
Papa Bear Sampler Scarf is finally finished. This final section is "Double Moss" Stitch. I've got a lot of ends to work in and then a gentle blocking to get it in shape. Should have a final photo for you next week. While you are visiting with Grandma Coco, I recommend that you browse through and check out the cookies she has been decorating. They are a work of art.
looking for the pattern, it's available for free from Redheart. Remember, if you use their variegated yarn, you need 7 balls not the 5 that the pattern suggests.
Pattern from Redheart. When finished, each will get a gold thread loop for hanging.
So why am I making sprinkle donuts for my tree and for my family. In July my dear nephew Alex passed away at the age of 26. From the time he was quite young, he loved sprinkle donuts. This was not a passing fancy, he enjoyed them throughout his life. A trip to Tim Hortons for a coffee and donut was a regular outing. Almost every time we visited, at least one of use would go to Tim's with him. I am making these for my family and friends in memory of Alex.
"Snowflake Hostess Apron". I am using the Red Heart Shimmer as suggested in the pattern. Daughter said no way to the Christmas colours and choose instead this vivid blue.
Snowflake waist band.
I am curious, what kind/colour/pattern of pillowcases do you use? My daughter has a whole slew of Halloween theme ones that she uses all year round. My mother and I make lots of them for the various nieces and nephews. I don't know that the plain ones that come with the sheet sets ever make it out of the cupboard.
If you had your choice, what would be on your favourite pillowcase? I have a fiery orange flannel one that warms me up.
