Happy day-after-valentine’s day!
I hope you had a good yesterday and of course today. I made a quick little gift for N the night before.
The inspiration for it came from purl bee which is always excellent for quick and gratifying ideas. I won’t say much about the fabric now (because it’s a little piece of what I am working with right now), but N had asked for something in red and something heart shaped so she got what she wanted. And it was super super quick to make.
This blurry photo is unfortunately the only one I have but she is pretty pleased with it.
Then also we sent off some stuff she made and I sent off my package a few days before that.
Sadly none of these have reached their destinations yet, it seems. So for now I will remain quiet about it!
All in all it was quite a valentines day celebration for someone (i.e. me!) who is not much into festivities.
Oh,and I almost forgot…on a totally unrelated note:
I cracked the method to make homemade butter! Over the years I have tried this many times, and finally on Friday thanks to some patient instructions of a good friend and pictorial aids from here, I got my first blob/handful (?) of butter. The taste is divine and N had three straight spoonfuls of it. I admit that I had a few undisclosed number of tastings too 🙂 And while I can always buy butter from the shop, this opens up more possibilites….
