curtain making

on friday i spent a better portion of my day making curtains!

they were for the guest bedroom and since we were having a guest this past weekend i felt the need to finally tackle this long awaited project.
simple panel curtains made out of "linen look" attached with curtain clips.i love the airy, light affect it now give this space.
this room, along with every other room, will eventually undergo extensive renovations, but for now     ( as i have to keep reminding myself of)
i can do little things to keep making it feel like a home.
...and on the plus side we already put new windows in this room last fall! one less on the to do list.

easter brunch

 we had the pleasure of hosting jason's sister for the weekend. she lives a couple of  hours away, so it was great to spend some more time with her. on sunday we made a pancake feast and had brunch out on the porch. we got a little crazy and decided to make cake batter pancakes with sprinkles. i had seen the idea somewhere and thought it would be fun to try. and maybe i just happened to have some extra cream cheese icing ,ahem, to spread on top.
oh it was a yummy feast.
followed by a much needed bike ride.



i hope this easter morning finds you well. its a sunny day here after many days of storms... we are taking a laid back approach to easter this year. usually we get together as a family, but we are putting that off till mothers day weekend. 
the flowers are from my garden out front. they bring me much cheer after this long winter.
the cake is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.


more baby sets

i have been asked to knit for baby once again! i fell in love with this darling set from pickles! they have some of the most wonderful patterns i've seen! i always enjoy making baby things. they knit up so quick, that you can feel satisfied that you completed something in close to one sitting. i used a bamboo yarn for this project. soft and delicate and quite appropriate for baby, i think.
