Long time no post. I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. My husband and I had a blessed one, we are lucky enough to live in the same town as both of our sets of parents and my husband's grandmother. We had a lovely vegetarian meal.

This pomegranate is super simple and quick. I have been meaning to sit down and write this pattern down for a month now but Christmas gifts and custom orders have been keeping my fingers busy.

Tiny Turkey Leg

Just a little pattern today. I know it is a busy week for everyone but you may be able to squeeze in time to work on this amigurumi, I did.

Romantic Cuffs

Christmas and the winter holidays are fast approaching and my fingers have been in overdrive. I have been making shawls for family and blanket and hat sets for friend's children. Today I needed a break to make something pretty for me. 
These romantic cuffs were partly inspired by the lovely Half Moon Shawls by Lion.

Cream Puff

I have sweets on the mind since I skipped my cupcake day. I have major cookie baking to do tomorrow for a belated Halloween party and I know I will be checking all the batches for "poison" so I didn't think I needed a cupcake today.
A little tiny cream puff that won't ruin your diet.

Ever year a local Greek Orthodox church puts on a Greek Food Festival. This year it fell on the day of my physical so it was a good excuse to go as a reward for not screaming and running out of the doctors office. I must report the stunning result of my blood tests, perfect in all fields. I had the right amount of vitamins, cholesterol, and blood sugar. Yay me! Back to the fest- my husband and I always get a piece or two of spanakopita and tiropita. And what is a Greek celebration without pastries? We splurged and each got a lovely piece of baklava.

Another favorite Greek treat of mine is Amigdalota. It is a melt in your mouth cookie made with almonds. I particularly like the ones with candied cherries on top.

Forest Faerie Cowl

I got it done before dark. Yay!
This is a chunky cowl is crocheted holding 3 strands together instead of using a bulky yarn. I like the color it adds to the project. The cowl is also gathered at four points to help the fit.
I'm not normally a green person but when I came across the beautiful pea coat at Goodwill I couldn't say no. Not only is it beautiful, it also fits me perfectly. An unexpected bonus is that it matches some yarn I just bought.


I am almost all better. Although now I think I have a cold coming on. I promise I am working on a new pattern today but I am not sure if I will have it done in time to take pics.  To make up for it I will introduce you all to our newest family member and show off our Halloween costumes.
