I made this afghan, using Lion Brand Yarn's Tree of Life crochet pattern, this summer to give as a fall wedding gift.
It is huge - it would fit nicely on a double bed - and it turned into a gift I thought was perfect for a special bride and her new husband.
Do-it-yourself and cooking projects at our house have been limited this fall, mostly because I've been really busy and Rob has been dealing with a hand injury for the last three weeks.
(The photo shows Milou not caring how busy I am - could I please walk him, already?)
Hey everyone, I mentioned last week that we have available Taste of Home magazines for those who didn't get them at our event last week.
Thank you so much to everyone who attended our Taste of Home Cooking Show in Urbana on Tuesday night. I had a great time, and I hope you did, too.
I've been really busy writing about K-12 education in Champaign-Urbana lately, but I wanted to remind you that tonight, I'll also be hanging out at the Taste of Home Cooking School in Urbana.
I love a good slow cooker recipe, and this one, for White Bean Chicken Chili, is provided by Taste of Home. It serves six.
I've been having a really busy fall so far, but I actually had some time to do some crafting this weekend.
A few weeks ago, my sister gave me a large grapevine wreath. Since then, it's been sitting on my coffee table, begging for attention.
I love apple dishes in the autumn, but this recipe for Apple-Brined Chicken Thighs is like nothing I’ve ever seen before.
Today, I finally have a chance to write about a piece of art I made to complement the newly painted gray walls in my spare room.
I've made several fun gifts this summer, which makes me happy. The problem with gifts, though, is it's hard to blog about them until after they're delivered.
I recently sent a few baby shower gifts I made for Rob's cousins and the baby they're expecting soon. I didn't know its gender, so that was kind of a fun challenge for the gift-making process.
