Those spam comments in my comments field really shit me and I can't work out how to delete them without using the whole comment modification thing which seems way too overbearing. Is it just me? Is there a magic answer?
The lovely Maggie sent Amy and I this pack on Monday as part of the cooking with kids swap. Amy already loves the cups with matching straws (matching straws!) and I can't wait to have a chance to road test the cookbook. I know lots of other people have given it rave reviews so I'm very excited! Takes me back to my student share house days where the enchanted broccoli forest and moosewood made regular appearances on the menu. Thanks so much Maggie!
And these came back from the binder and it's all official and I graduate in 3 weeks. Jeepers eh?
Progress is slow on all discretionary craft as I beaver away on my wholesale order. Tomorrow will be machine sewing central as I start putting together the Mibalas I cut out earlier in the week during nap times.
I've been working on a new design for this order, something that captures a similar aesthetic to the Steiner dolls I love so much, but which utilises my favourite material, felted knit. Perhaps it's the weather but I just love it's warm cuddliness.
I'm pretty happy with these early models which seem to maintain some individuality despite sharing the same basic pattern. One of the things I love about the felt knit is a certain level of unpredictability, the way each piece has its own level of stretch and give. Anyway once the deal is all done and dusted I'll let you know where you can find these babies.
And now it's time for bed. Hope you're all going well out there.
