A few weekends ago Mr. Owl (my night owl boyfriend, aka Mr. Kitchen-Crafty) and I spent an idyllic summer weekend visiting family and friends. It was a weekend filled to the brim with good food, wonderful company, and some craftiness too (hurray!).
The weekend schedule was as follows:
1. A long bus ride made fun with knitting and audiobooks (the local library is a great source of roadtrip fun).
Working on my Shalom cardigan.
2. Crepes with fresh blackberry jam and maple syrup.
dill beans love posing with pesto
4. Extreme croquet (crocket as it's been nicknamed) in the woods - trees, logs and rocks made for interesting obstacles.
Scared to look. Did I make the shot?
6. Blackberry picking from a wild patch. Now to decide what to make: jam, pie, juice...
(picture from weheartit)7. Handmade body butter and body bars, which we named Baby Beaver Body Butter after our fabulous encounter.
Recipes for pesto and body butter and balm coming up! Stay tuned!
Hope you're enjoying the final days of summer!
