i couldn't resist this yarn. i am loving aqua and red together at the moment. throw in brown and i love it more. tempted to cast on in the next day or so, but we'll see.
i have been doing a lot of online shopping lately. i see a few extra bucks in my checking account and i have instant rationalization for knitting purchases. nevermind the visa bill that is coming with 2 super cute new spring handbags charged on it. oh well.
i haven't been baking much lately, but inspiration hit when my mom bought me this book
granted, the recipe is here
for free (and since i have every publication of hers i am sure it is in one of the magazines on my shelf too).
but the book is so well designed i couldn't resist. good design makes me happy. anyways, these were pretty too look at, expensive to make and a bit of a time suck to prepare. and you know what? they were pretty tasteless! ugh. too bad. the honey bee ice cream from haagen dazs that i paired them with was excellent though!
(jan and chris, i don't know why but these totally remind me of jammie dodgers!)
and i meant to blog this awhile back, but newly acquired art for above the fireplace
. because it is a diy stretched fabric piece, you get a lot of bang for your buck. this thing is HUGE. 5 ft x 5 ft or something crazy like that. i love it though. marimekko fabrics are awesome.
my mystery piece is blocked and i took some pictures today (holy moly there is sun in seattle today!). they need some major photoshopping so i'll post later. have a great weekend. besides having to take my parents to the airport before 5 a.m. tomorrow, i have some fun plans and the weather is supposed to be sunny and warm. what more could i ask for?
