Just About Over

YES!!!!! The worst part of Bryony’s bag–the body–is finally done!!! I’m working on the drawstring cord and the shoulder strap now, both of which are easy. And once I’m done, it may be a very long time before I attempt a bag of my own. Okay, probably not true, as I’m working on a design for a […]

Down to the Wire

11 days till Christmas, and seven till Yule on the winter solstice, which, being Wiccan, is really the day I should be celebrating on, but it’s easier just to stick with Christmas Day. The kids would undoubtedly be happier if we went for the solstice, since it’s sooner, but, hey, we’re not even certain yet […]

White Clam Sauce

Yorkshire Pudding, Revisited

You may remember, some months back, I was trying to make a decent Yorkshire pudding, which I am assured can really only be done properly by a Brit, which I most assuredly am not. However, I had to try. They cooked up the way the recipe said they should, but they were pretty bland. Never […]

A Very Dangerous Site: Pinterest!

I’ve known about Pinterest for quite some time. I’ve been a member since its early days. I’ve dabbled in it here and there. But never have I actually used it to its full potential…until now. Sweet baby cheeses, this site is the New York City of search engines, and coming from me, that is the […]
