My Favourite Pins This Week
Frozen peaches and cream cake is crazy easy, guys! I had no idea it could be so easy. it’s not the mot photogenic dessert, but it tastes like heaven and is a perfect summer dessert. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Sometimes, the best dinner is just amazing ingredients on toast, and summer is a time when that pretty much seems like they way it should be. This is a brilliant way to braise fresh tomatoes, and if you don’t have access to burrata cheese, use feta. That’s what I did, and it was delicious. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe can be found here.
How beautiful is this crocheted flower? I love the technique, it looks so easy and would be a wonderful way to use up leftover bits of yarn, even those with angora. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here (in Russian, but if you use Google Chrome, you can right click and translate to English or the language of your choice).
These clay confetti coasters are so pretty, and would be a lovely homemade housewarming gift. Or you could make them into shallow bowls for change or keys, too! Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY can be found here.
This isn’t a DIY tutorial, but it’s such a pretty wall decoration (how perfect for a craft store or yarn shop?!) and would be easy enough to mimic on your own, using the photos as a guide. yarn wrapped embroidery hoops, colourful pom poms, and some little bird houses and branches- just so pretty! Pinterest link is here, and the original post can be found here.
Were are the weeks going?! Lila’s just had her last full week of school and after school programming, next week she has her final 4 days of school (and there’s no after school program). Eeek! Something about when school lets out that makes it feel like summer is truly, officially here!
I know that it’s been quiet on the knitting front- once my fractured finger healed, I had a deadline for a top secret new design coming out this fall. I will have shareable knitting content soon! Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
