brownies, reading, & knitting

If you are a chocolate lover, I must recommend that you head on over to Amy's for a fabulous brownie recipe. These are the richest, and most chocolately, and I have been eating way more of them than I should. I just enjoyed one with a cup of English breakfast tea ~ yum!

I have finally found a copy of Country Home Holiday with Matthew Mead. Lots of great ideas for Christmas crafting and baking, and if you go to his website you can download gift wraps, tags, and labels.

The guys are off hunting this weekend so I have been trying to finish a pair of fingerless gloves for myself. I made a pair of cranberry colored ones for Stephanie, and since she's been wearing them each day I haven't yet gotten any pictures. They are really cute though, and I promise some pictures soon of the finished project.
These are mine, in Andean Silk cinnamon...

Today my sister and I had a great time at an antique co-op, and I came home with some vintage buttons, fabric, & linen. Then my Superbuzzy order arrived in the mail with the hedgehog fabric I have been eagerly awaiting, so I promise some pictures soon.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I look forward to the pics of the fabric. Love the pics of the fingerless gloves and those brownies are so tempting. I saw them at Amy's also. I have been working on my potholder this evening. I decided to try crocheting mine so I'll let you know how it turns out. Nice girl's weekend, huh? Sounds really nice.

  2. I love the color of that yarn!
    I've immersed myself in Christmas magazines this week including this one. This one had a couple of recipes that sounded wonderful and some nice gift presentation ideas.
    I'm glad that you are having a nice weekend.
    Take care.

  3. That brownie looks so very good this morning. Yummy!

    I saw the brownies on Amy's site and you both appear to be talented bakers! They look yummy and my dh favorite is brownies so today I shall try these too. Thanks for the pattern link for the fingerless gloves, these will make excellent gifts for my sisters:-)

  5. I can't tell you how tickled I am that you enjoyed the recipe so much. Yours look lovely - you even iced them. Yikes!

    I'm itching to start a new knitting project, but I've got Christmas sewing to finish first so I can send of a parcel to my sister.

  6. It sounds like you have had a great weekend! Thanks for the link to the website~so many fabulous downloads! I haven't seen the magazine, I will look for it... and the fingerless gloves you made are gorgeous.

  7. Those brownies look delicious. I'm looking forward to this year's selection of Christmas magazines. We get the US ones a bit later here but usually before Christmas.

  8. Your weekend sounds wonderful. I also made Amy's brownies this weekend and they disappeared very quickly! It is now my official brownie recipe, they are perfect!

  9. Your magazine looks very interesting. ;)

  10. That brownie looks delicious.

  13. The colour of the yarns is so rich! I saw Amy's brownie recipe and it does look yummy but I've sworn off chocolate for a while (sob, sob. Thank you for the link!

  14. Thank you so much for giving me the link to Matthew Mead's site. His site is gorgeous.. and I just found out he lives in my state! So that was pretty cool. :) Now I just need to find the magazine....

  15. I love the magazine - the white Christmas feature was my favorite.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving

    Thank you so much for promoting my new magazine... I am so thrilled to see your inspiring site and that delicious looking Brownie... I can't thank you enough for posting the cover and am thrilled to see how much appreciation of life and beauty there is out there... Happy Holidays... Matthew Mead

  17. I wanted to wish you a Happy and safe Thankgiving.



  18. The brownies are nearly "My Recipe!" I don't add baking powder (I whip up the eggs for levening) and add 2 c. flour. These are so rich and good!

    The fingerless gloves are so COOL! I'm impressed.
