I have a lot of this yarn. It's one of those jumbo balls.
I'm trying out various free baby hat patterns on the internet. Three little hats in three evenings.
The embroidery is getting there. It's just taking time.
I did manage to cut and sew nine little receiving blankets. They are all pre-washed so therefore, pre-shrunk. I have more flannel that I need to cut up and hem.
While looking for some broadcloth to finish off the binding for the baby quilt, I found (buried under a pile of fabric) a laundry basket filled with flannel. Totally forgot about them. I will be hauling it out to see what there is to add to Patric's rag quilt - still on the list.
And now, on to food...
I make smoothies almost daily. This one has fresh raspberries, plain yogurt, a banana, some almond mild and skim milk.
Yesterday, I made kale chips. My son Eric was over and helped me eat some. I had a bag of pre-cut kale and so it was a matter of rinsing it in water, shaking off the excess and tossing a bunch with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and some chili peppers (flakes). I then arranged them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, baked at 350F until crisp (15-20 minutes.) It took three pans full till the bag was finished and most of it got eaten right away. The chili peppers just add a bit of spice.
I'm off to work on getting some sewing done so I can cross stuff off my list.
