Just poppin’ my head in to let you know my posting will be very erratic this month. It’s the holiday \(>o<)/ rush!
I have seven teachers to gift this year. My plan was to make mug cozies after seeing Deb’s. However, after trying to start a different pattern I thought was cute on Pinterest and not being a fan of cotton yarn, I was so not lovin’ how it was comin’ out - grrr. So I’m thinkin’ instead of stressin’ myself ridiculously out, Plan B will be baking sweet loaves.
I do also have the mandatory projects to finish:
1. Get the tree up and decorated,
2. Take our pics for our 2013 Christmas card,
3. M’s ripple – I do have the yarn now,
4. Her birthday cardi to steam block and buttons to buy and sew on + add a cute outfit to it,
and 5. this…
Do you any of you read Adrialys Handmade Creations?
She makes really cute amigurumi. I purchased her Aquatic Animals ebook. I loved her Santino the Blue-Spotted Stingray every time she posted about it so I had to have it!
Anywho, I contacted her about designing a particular sea animal I had in mind for my nephew. She only releases two patterns a month and so I’m not sure when it’ll come out, but I need to get started as it has to get shipped out to Virginia ASAP.
I leave you with what most of we, Chinese, do with a turkey carcass – jook.
My mum made it. Yes, you see scallions. The black jelly lookin’ things are cut up pei-an – a.k.a. thousand year egg, hundred year egg, or century egg. If you want to learn more about it, check out this article. The fried food is you tiao - Chinese fried donuts or Chinese breadstick.
And a dessert I never tire of…chocolate chip mint ice cream in a cone:
I always feel a cone makes it so much betta! My hubb bought these Safeway waffle cones and they surprisingly came with these cute, striped, festive sleeves.
Until our next chat…
