We have made donuts with Emmy Bo's adorable little donut machine. They lasted just enough to take this picture. My favorite was the cinnamon sugar coated ones. This is something we will do over and over again as it was so simple to make the donuts and so much fun to decorate them.
The garden is green and lush, full of vegetables to harvest although the tomato plants died from too much rain... We enjoy sunny afternoons and Luca Bo is playing motocross between the cauliflower plants... He never stops to surprise me... He has a great imagination and love for play. And Emmy Bo??? She is a little bug. Always with a big grin on her face. In the way, bugging, wanting attention and playing hard on her charm to get it. And she gets it. Yes, she is the baby. I guess she will always get the attention being the youngest...
I sit down with my latest fabulous crochet book addition, a signed copy of Puur Haken (buy it here!) from dear Maaike at CreJJtion. Her first crochet book is a work of art and pure joy to read. Pictures are divine and inspiring and there are so many projects I want to make. I instantly threw myself into making rag rug inspired pot coasters... Love on high level...
I look at Charlie the cat and suddenly I feel exhausted of all the hallibalou that has been going on here lately... And even if the hallibalou have been of the wonderful kind (successful pattern release, late girly dinner party, the start of a photo course and also thumbs up for a summerhouse purchase in Sweden -YAY!) I think I need to do what Charlie does... Take naps and only chill and recover. Play with color combos of the Popcorn & Lace Squares to find just the right one for just the right Popcorn & Lace Square project... You can buy the pattern for the Popcorn & Lace Square here.
Now it is time for pasta with homemade pesto... Simple and cheerful. Quick and easy. Just what I need today.
