our weekend was spent:

baking chocolate chip cookies - good ol' nestle toll house classic
is still my favorite. chewy in the middle and golden brown on the bottom.

finishing up some knitting projects.
the pattern for my springtime bandit 
can be found at kelbourne woolens
a great collection of patterns (a lot of them free)and beautiful yarns. 
i especially like the acadia line of yarn in blackberry, granite, and asparagus.

how was your weekend spent?

just a reminder that things are starting to get busy around here. i will be back on wednesday with a new block for my 'starry skies' sampler quilt. if you want to see all of the posts about my new sampler quilt just click here and you can start your starry sewing, too! i will also be writing the first post in another new series here at the homestead on friday featuring a quick and fun project for your home. hint: it involves minimal sewing, string, and you can hang it anywhere! see you on wednesday.


  1. i made chocolate chip cookies last week, too, but they weren't nearly as pretty as yours. that didn't stop us from eating them all, though. i love that shawl... such a lovely color!

    1. nothing should stop you from eating all of the chocolate chip cookies!
