Back in 2011, I was on the hunt for a flat Easter egg crochet pattern that was worked in the round. I had made a heart garland a few weeks earlier for Valentines Day and I wanted to make a similar egg garland for Easter. I searched the internet and found that there were plenty of patterns for 3 dimensional eggs and flat eggs worked in rows
I love bread… and when I say I love bread, I mean LOVE bread. Not the white, soft, tasteless toast bread that seems to be abundant in the grocery stores, but the crunchy crusty outside, doughy and full of flavor inside bread… bread that reminds me of the kind that you would find in Germany and Europe. Real bread… oh how I love it. The thing is, I’ve found that most stores seem to stock up on the soft crust, flavorless kind of bread… and depending on the brand, they charge a pretty penny for it too.
Valentine’s Day will be here in a few short days and while I may not have many decorations set up yet, I did get the heart garland up and have been busy crafting behind the scenes. There are lots of tutorials out there that will show you how to make very simple mini crocheted hearts… …
My love affair with ice cream goes back a long, long, very long time. You will rarely find me passing up a bowl of ice cream, and it never usually lasts long in our house, since I’m not the only ice cream lover here. In all of my ice cream eating years though, I had never heard of magic shell until I met Ray.
I love Pinterest. It is such a great inspirational site and I have pinned many, many things already… most of which I will probably never make.
It’s back to school time, so you know what that means… sickies galore!!! =)
The kids have been fighting something ever since they got their flu shots 3 1/2 weeks ago. I was hoping in Abby’s case that her runny nose was caused by teething (getting 2 of the last bottom 4!!), but it doesn’t look like that was entirely it. Both kids were feeling pretty crumby this past Sunday (lets face it, Ray and I weren’t feeling too great either – we’re fighting whatever “it” is too), so the day was spent doing “calm” things… even though it would have been great to get out and run and play… it was a beautiful fall day!
Now that all of the winter holidays are over and it is officially Springtime ( YAY!! Though you would never know it by looking or going outside today), I thought it would be a good idea to get some cheerful decorations in the house. I’ve seen Valentine and St Patrick’s Day garlands out in blogland and was inspired by them to make the pattern for my Easter Egg Garland!!
Now that Abby’s birthday is over and the thank you cards have all (hopefully) been delivered, I feel like time can start moving again here at home. No more worrying about what needs to be done and taken care of… everything is just back to life as usual… thank goodness!!
I know you all have been eagerly awaiting my deep dish, or stuffed, pizza tutorial… I mean look at this baby and tell me that your mouth isn’t watering just at the sight of it!
I interrupt the regularly scheduled program of not yet posted but will be posted later today reviews, to let you know that my Alphabet Bean Bag Tutorial was featured on Ucreate!!
