Time for a post

I have precisely one excuse for my lack of updates just lately.  I've been a little under the weather and have spent most of the week hiding from a headache under a warm fluffy blanket.

But it's been a good week.  Last week, my good friend Canary Knits (aka Teresa) featured me in her Indie Designer Day section. 

It was pretty awesome.  It's one thing to enjoy your own designs, but it's another thing entirely to get props from others for them. 

Teresa is pretty talented, herself.  She's even gone a step further in the design world and managed to get herself into a book with this lovely piece.  We've been working on a project together and are getting ready to roll it out.  It was quite a bit of work, but it's also been quite a lot of fun. 

On a completely non-knitting tangent, I've been playing with all the yummy things my breadmaker can do.  I discovered foccacia bread.  Not that I haven't had it before...I have.  But I've never MADE it before.  I made garlic cheesy-dill foccacia bread yesterday evening.  I'm pretty sure, if I let myself, I could eat the whole loaf in one sitting.  It's just amazing!  Of course, the "amazing" might come from the garlic butter mixed with green onion and dried dill, spread over the whole loaf with a basting brush.

I think I am going to serve up the remainder of the loaf with garlic cheesy-dill chicken wings for dinner.  I've never made garlic cheesy-dill chicken wings, and the thought is making my mouth water.


  1. Mmm, bread maker! They are FABULOUS! The fact that yours can make foccacia has me mondo jealous.

    Thanks for the props too :)

  2. I know I rarely comment, but I love your blog and am citing it as such over on mine. Just wanted to let you know! :) Enjoy your weekend!
