Crochet Floral Clock

I’ve seen some pinned crochet clocks and definitely wanted to make one myself. My cousin is celebrating here birthday so this will be a surprise for her, as I understand she does not wish for anything materialistic.

Crochet Ben10 Winter Set for Junior

image

High-vis yarn, gotto love it. Fluorescent almost (standard no 1 from lammy). Purrfect for the kid, since it gets really dark in Sweden in the autumn/winter and this kid will be visible!

Chain Cowl

Today I tried a pattern for a chain scarf on some scrap yarn. The results turned out okay – nice little chain cowl in shades of green with some grey.

Purple Veggie Lasagna

The hubby and I eat too much meat. In an attempt to rectify this we try to cook vegetarian every now and then.

This is what we conjured up today.

Broccoli + purple cauliflower + onion + aubergine + salt + pepper

With cheese sauce and lasagna plates

The end result

Surprisingly tasty!

The purple cauliflower was fun and added a bit of fun coloring to the whole thing.

Retro Homemade Applesauce

Our trees are providing (as usual) a tremendous amount of apples. A good way to use loads of them is Swedish traditional apple sauce.

Handmade for best result.

Guest Bathroom

Well.. this is a weird one..
Once upon a time this was just a tiny boring toilet used by guests twice a year. Then one day, the mother in law gave us a chandelier that really did not fit anywhere in our tiny little house. The only place where we could fit it and pass it off as a sort of joke was the guest bathroom.  After some time we found our old blacklight lightbulb by coincidence. Then naturally to make the most of the situation, we needed lots of white and or glow in the dark items.

Peach Pie

With limited time for baking (between making the cupcakes and the two kidz) I threw together this peach crumble pie. 

Shortcuts used; Peaches in syrup, thus I only had to make crumble and pie crust. Then for directly to the oven.  Fast and simple.

BBQ veggie skewers cupcakes

image

My first attempt at this so they’re sadly not as pretty as I would like.. nonetheless, this is apple/cinnamon cupcakes (same recipe as for apple cake) with chocolate buttercream topping. I melted chocolate to create a BBQ grid and added gummy bears on toothpicks.
