Got a few bits and bobs to share with you today.
You may remember a while back I was repairing hand knitted woollen socks, lamenting that we no longer had anyone who knitted them for us. Well, this week we got a parcel from Finland with these two beautiful hand knitted woolly socks 😀 Thank you Eeva-Liisa ♥ Our feet are now toasty warm.
You may also recall that I have been learning the fine art of pyrography. In order to have a good base on which to work, I needed a plinth. So TRH (The Retired Husband ) made me one out of some of that mountain of scrap timber he has.
And yes, that is a celtic knot I’m working on to further develop the art of shading. And drawing lines that flow cleanly and are not full of black blobs. Not doing so well on that front! That’s why I’m not showing you a close up look !
This week, yesterday in fact, I came across a video on my Facebook page that had all these fabulous recipes for making healthy vegetable snacks in the oven. I was inspired to try a couple. So I made cauliflower hashbrowns and zucchini chips.
And here they are – newly baked. The cauliflower hashbrowns were a big hit. The zucchini chips tasted good but I need to work on them a bit more. Some got burnt to a crisp, some were fine, others were under done. I cut them by hand so the thickness varied too much. I knew I should have used a mandolin even as I was doing it.
And ta-dah! Here is the video just in case you want to try them yourself.
