Blue and green are totally my colours for January 2012… They usually are, but right now they really, really are. I’m drinking in these colours and just can’t get enough of them, as you will see in a few upcoming posts!
Want to see a sneak peek of my latest crochet project?
Yes indeed that is my first ripple blanket… I have a love/hate relationship with ripple blankets, meaning I love everyone else’s but I always hate the ones I start myself. I’ve made a deal with myself to stick with this one to the very end. But more about that another time, I still have to show you KB’s finished Higgldey-Piggldey Blanket before we get onto ripple business.
I’ve been learning to bake brownie since New Years, when I found what seemed to be a totally do-able brownie recipe!
Back home, as a day-off treat KB and I used to go to our favourite cafe and buy huge slices of gooey, chocolatey, nutty brownie and take it home and sit in our little sanctuary and eat it with big mugs of instant coffee to wash it down… sooooooo much more relaxing than sitting in a cafe! As yet we have not found a cafe that makes excellent gluten-free brownie, so I’m making it my personal mission to create the most perfect GF brownie I can…..
It’s looking good so far, and tasting awesome too, but still needs a bit of tampering before I’m happy! Shall I post the recipe when I’m happy with it?
Hope your January is going well!
Sending you much love,
