I decided to write a rambling post today. While I'm enjoying the Little Women read-along so much, I decided to take a day off and write about happenings. Early March seems to make me ramble.
|The baguettes. Delicious, but not pretty.|
|Lime and Sea-Salt Brownies from Kitchn. Delicious!|
|Just a pretty mess. A tea towel, dusts of flour, and the lime zest for the brownies.|
|Homemade Hot and Sour Soup, also from Kitchn.|
I started a book called To the Wild Sky by Ivan Southall who is, apparently a fairly well-known Australian children's author from the 50s and 60s who wrote about children having adventures. To the Wild Sky is about six children who are on a plane to a birthday party in New South Wales. Their plans are immediately thrown to the wind when the pilot dies, leaving them in a rapidly falling plane. One of the boys steers the plane to safety on a deserted island, where the children have to learn to fend for themselves. It's very exciting and I'm really enjoying having such a gripping book.
While spring is lovely and I absolutely can't wait to see ground again (even muddy ground!) I saw struck by the absolute gorgeousness of winter as I looked out the window at this.
Today is World Book Day! What are you reading today? I have To the Wild Sky, Little Women, a few inspiration cookbooks, and November Knits, a knitting book.
It's the Easter Dress time of year again! I have my dress about half done and waiting by my sewing machine. I found some fairly cheap organic cotton voile that looks like watercolors. I'm making it up in a 50s party dress pattern, which I think is going to work perfectly as an Easter dress.
|I'm doing the view with sleeves|
|I am so proud of those neat little pin tucks all down the front. I still have buttons, a skirt,|
and sleeves to put on, but it's starting to feel like a real dress now!
