Tea Towels

Tea towels - ah how I love thee

I'm becoming quite the tea towel addict/user/abuser of late
there are a million and one uses to which I put them a thousand and one times a day. I can't seem to get enough of them and blow through my pile daily with abandon

and they add nice color and variety to the kitchen scenery :)


In an effort to truly test out the new oven on more then a casserole (of which there have been many lately) I have decided to use my lazy lazy Sunday to make: Bread!
nothing better then the smell of bread baking - so homey

I have two bananas about to go off so some kind of banana bread (quick bread) is in order and some kind of rolls I do believe.

The banana bread recipe is from The Fresh Loaf
Love me The Fresh Loaf :)

and the dinner roll recipe I decided to try is from Recipezaar: Delectable Dinner Rolls

I'll post pics of the finished yumminess

Move -we have successfully moved. Packing a house and moving is a pain and exhausting and argh! inducing but we have succeeded and now - we unpack
boxes - and crates and more boxes.

Swap-bot = renewl of creative crafty-ness

Swap-bot has become my latest time sink/mail obsession. On the plus side it has me doing all kinds of things I had not done in a long time (papercutting, stamping, being creative and social). Good fun :)

Bead Sprites

So the Muppet♥ (yes I live with a full grown muppet -that's him over there (Sweetums from the JimHenson Muppet crew -thanks to muppetwiki for image)) and I have recently begun dabbling in making Bead Sprites from Perler/Hama Beads. You basically construct your image then iron the beads to fuse them together into a lasting image. Fun, easy and tons of video game applications (which makes the Muppet very happy - he has a thing for the vid-ia) So eventually when I upload my pictures they will start appearing here.
