I love these rolls, everything about them! I especially love how easy they are. I was inspired by this recipe which is a variation of a legendary PW recipe. I’ve posted my variation on my food page if you’d like to make some too. My secret ingredient is Cardamom! This stuff costs like $70 a pound but thankfully I can buy it in tiny quantities at my favorite market in the bulk food section, I get these super moist raisins there too.

That’s a new dish towel I made to practice my crochet-edging skills on. Come to find out I’ve been crocheting wrong…forever!

Summer has been nicely busy and the days are flying by. We’ve done the fair, had a visit from the Grandparents, child # 3 is gearing up for college and I’ve been super busy in the sewing room. Jerry has some vacation time coming up and I cannot wait! Here are just a few recent images…lots more at instagram!

PS – something new from Impie, Hattie & Bea is on the way!

I made two tiny quilts, one just a simple 9 patch with 2.5 inch squares and this pretty tulip quilt from Quilting in the Rain.

I glued some fabric to a jar for a pretty night light using a led candle :0)

and pulled out my watercolors to paint the flowers on my balcony. I need to do this more than once a year if I want to improve I think!

Lots of sewing going on as usual. Today I have something new!! Impie, Hattie & Bea A Bit of Knitting Bags (or a bit of anything you like)…

These are perfect to take your project along on a walk, commute, out to eat, coffee break….the list goes on. The base of the bag is about 5 inches square and they stand about 6.5 inches tall. The needles that are sticking out of the closed bag are 10″ needles

I’ve also made a pretty little coordinating stitch marker for each bag. Many are one of a kind and others will be added each week. As for their names, just a way to keep track of the styles…I named them after all the times I like to knit :0)

Pop over to the webshop for details, save if you buy two bags!

Happy Tuesday!

They stand up all by themselves, even when they’re empty!
