Yarn Along

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along...

My current knitting project is Another Plain Vest in Luna grey Spectra (the colorway is Calm) and have only the finishing left to do.

As far as reading goes, I'm still slowly reading and enjoying Trauma Farm. I'm also really enjoying reading and testing recipes from The Mystic Cookfire: The sacred art of creating food to nurture friends and family. I just recently purchased it after reading about it many times on Laura's blog. It's a very inspiring book and exactly the kind of cooking that I love.

Keep Calm Craft On: Weekend Sewing and Lavender Picking

This weekend we went lavender picking!!! It was such a nice outing! The flowers were beautiful and the perfume was heavenly!

Once we got home, we had fun experimenting with some recipes using our fresh flowers. 

lavender skin lotion and lavender body oil
lavender-lemon tea cakes

I also got some sewing done this weekend and finished a little jacket for Sacha just in time for our outing. The pattern is from Anna Maria Horner and so is the fabric (Field Study). The buttons are from Wooly Moss Roots.

Happy crafting on!

Here is Pippa's MLB on The King of Ireland's Son by Padraic Colum. We both enjoyed this book very much.

Voici le cahier de Pippa sur Le Fils du Roi d'Irlande de Padraic Colum. Ce livre nous a beaucoup plu.

Keep Calm Craft On

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On...

It's hard to get a picture of my busy little guy these days. He's always on the move... I just finished knitting these very practical little Pea Patch wool soaker/shorts in Peace Fleece. I love these two colours together!

I also just finished sewing this infinity scarf in a very summery fabric that I love (I believe it's Liberty of London, but I can't remember for sure since I purchased it a while ago).

Happy crafting on!
