This little project was actually knitted last year, and then I finally got around to embroidering the flowers on it recently.
The pattern is totally made up on the fly- just a stockinette sleeve with a seed stitch border, and some blue flowers embroidered for a bit of colour and detail. I really love embroidery!
Saturday we had a little party to celebrate Guy’s permanent residency visa. I baked up a storm- I made gluten free brownies, maple leaf sugar cookies, Canadian wildlife sugar cookies, mini cupcakes with maple leaf sprinkles, and mini quiches. Then I had to finally cave and buy pre-made nanaimo bars and butter tarts, because I had spent sooo many hours in the kitchen and I was just plain exhausted. I took some photos of the cookies, but I decided to kick back with some sangria and enjoy the party, so sunbsequently did not do much picture taking. But here are the wildlife cookies:
And while we’re on the subject of wildlife, I have to share with you all some of the cutest little photos I’ve seen in a while:
This is a little orphaned fawn that Taylor’s mom (you might remember Taylor from this post) is taking care of, with the help of her pet German Shepard!! Everything about these photos just wrings my heart, it’s all so adorable. The second shot even has, inexplicably, gratuitous kittens wandering around. So much cuteness!!!
