Time to de-stash some of my yarn. This is only about one fourth of the pile that is growing faster than it is being used up. There should be enough for a blanket or five.
made this great blanket, of twelve, 20 round granny squares sewn together. Brilliant. I get bored easily making big blankets. Making a bunch of little blankets keeps me motivated. Each square is like starting a new project all over again. It never gets old!
This holiday weekend, all the kids were home. My daughter took over one end of the dining room table with a jigsaw puzzle, which everyone contributed to as they passed through the room. The other end was piled high with my crochet yarn and a cross stitching sampler started by the other girl. There were baseball games on TV, spaghetti with homemade sauce and a surprise thunderstorm that beat down the dust and left everything smelling fresh again. Sunday morning I made pancakes, plain ones for the boys, and coconut protein pancakes for the girls.
adapted from the book Gorgeously Green by Sophie Uliano
1/2 cup pancake mix
3/4 to 1 cup of cottage cheese
small handful of unsweetened shredded coconut.
Mix all ingredients until well blended and spoon onto hot griddle or frying pan coated with coconut oil.
Serve with your favorite syrup or jam.
I love eating these as a snack, warmed up, alongside a cup of tea.
Now that September is here, I can start putting out some fall decorations, beginning with this idea found on Pinterest.
