joy hunt

20 07 2010

We had a quiet, restful weekend. A little knitting,

damson wip

a little swimming, and a lot of napping & nibbling on baked treats & drinking water. We have all caught mild summer colds – nothing horrible, just bleh. Sneezy, Coughy, and Raspy, that’s us.

Meanwhile out there in the world, joy continues. Here’s to a little inspiration:

making little lanterns from mandarins : tutorial from lucy patterson hands-on
printing with starfruit : tutorial from alphamom

raspberry rosemary cooler : recipe from maya*made
matcha poundcake : recipe from moonstitches
fun prints on tea towels and aprons : from fisk and fern

how to dry herbs in your hot car : tutorial from planet green/discovery channel

Hmmm… Is that a Damson I spy?

Love the color.

I need to go on a joy hunt right now. I’m not feeling nearly enough. Just bought “Happy for No Reason” at Borders from the bargain bin because it said “Happy” and the cover was yellow. That’s a good reason, right?

Yep, it’s a Damson 🙂 I love any excuse to knit with Malabrigo.

What a fabulous inspiration list!
I adore that yarn you are using. You have totally inspired me to take a trip past the wool shop this morning. Hooray! Happy Wednesday. X

Funny – I dried mint in my hot car on Sunday. It wasn’t on purpose though. LOL!
Love the color of that yarn.

Thanks for checking in at my blog. Your cherry dessert from the last post looks so delicious. My daughter loves cherries. I got her a cherry pitter last year (the OXO) and I use it all the time. I’m going to try it. I saw the recipe in 2 old Fine Cooking magazines lately. Your post confirmed I must make it!
