FO Friday - A Bunny!

I finally did it! I assembled the pieces of the long lost (hibernating) amigurumi and finished it!
Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Tinkerbunny!

I think she's one sassy lady! More pictures here! Have a lovely weekend!

WiP WednesDay!

Happy Wednesday! I'm so happy we're halfway through the week. Last couple of days have been a bit chaotic and I'm hopeful that from tomorrow, life will be a bit more mellow..

Since I last blogged about my "beanie-block", I decided to just give it a go. I just picked a pattern and I started hooking! And with some bulky yarn and a 10mm hook, it's working up fast!

Sorry about the blank-face pic, but I really didn't like the ones where I was smiling.. Let's move on quickly!

Basketweave and Beanie Block

Hello! And happy Sunday to you! I don't have much to show you this week, since I've mostly spent my days scrapbooking..

I worked a bit on my Chevron Winter Pillow, but I didn't bother taking a picture since there wasn't much difference to see.. I did however start with the knitting version of the basketweave stitch! It's one of the many stitches I wanted to learn.
It's kind of hard to see because of the yarncolor.. Sorry about that! I think I'm getting the hang of it, though I'm still experimenting (numbers of rows before switching, if that makes sense?) to see what kind of look I like. I have to say though, to me it does look very different from the crocheted version of the basketweave:

Do you do 'freezer cooking'?

Good morning! Lately I've been thinking a lot about freezer cooking..  I have to admit I rarely freeze my cooking, but supposedly freezer cooking would make your life easier and your cooking cheaper.. The only thing is, fiance and I are picky eaters and I'm having a hard time finding recipes that sound deliciously good to try! So far I've found 3 recipes that I want to try:

1. Breakfast Burritos from Hot Coupon World
Freezer Breakfast Burritos

2. Chicken Enchiladas from Annie's Eats

3. Spicy Kale Lasagna from the Oven Love Blog

... I might have to search the web some more for more blogs/recipes. But how about you? Do you cook&freeze? What's your favourite meal to 'freezer cook'?

Floating between winter and spring...

Does anyone else have that feeling that, on the one hand you're still enjoying Winter but on the other hand you wouldn't mind if Spring would come along? I'm still loving the scarfs, mittens, boots, sweaters and hot chocolate, but I would love to see the trees and flowers grow and sprout, and have baby bunnies and ducklings roaming around again!

Last week I summoned up the courage to start another pillowcase project, and I found a pattern that would hopefully match better with the Chevron Winter blanket.. I figured if I didn't start soon, I'd postpone it untill next winter.. So here's the progress so far...

I'm positive this will be a better match than the Puzzly Pillow I frogged 2weeks ago, though it's coming out much smaller than I'd imagined so I might have to be creative how it'll fit around a pillow.. I might have to make another square or sew the back? Anybody have ideas?

I finished the granny blanket last week as well! I just love how easy and fast those granny blankets work up! I especially liked this color combo, it really reminded me of Spring! (and some of you guys too! Yay!) 

So since then I've been in the 'Spring-mood' so to speak.. I want flowers in the house and Spring cleaning and colors and singing birds and all that! Then again, am I ready to not snuggle up under a blanket? Am I ready to not put on boots and not drink hot chocolates? Mmmmmmm...

Why Not?

Happy Sunday! How was your week? I've had a bit of a surprising, lovely week, actually! I'm a bit hesitant by nature, so surprises - or anything unplanned for that matter - don't always work that well with me. But this week, with every new 'adventure' I was like, "why not?" and "let's try that!" I tried new recipes (for example, a combination of these two 'White Chili Recipes' 12), I met new people, went places I haven't gone before! I felt... free! ....I found this drawing that pretty much sums it up..

Out with the old!

Hi everyone! How's this year treating you so far? I've been obsessed with cleaning, organizing.. and some more cleaning this week! So I didn't spend much time on crafting, or is frogging/taking out projects also crafting? It feels like un-crafting to me somehow. But I felt it was a necessary part of the organizing and getting rid of clutter!

I did start on a pillow cover with left-over yarn from my Chevron Winter Blanket, which looks like this:
