Just Be Happy

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Hello, hello. I apologize for the bad picture, but it's not even 3 o'clock and it's already getting dark, which makes it very hard to get a good picture. Oh well... this one will just have to do it for now. Anyhow, the picture is of a knitted scrap scarf that I started yesterday and finished today, now I'm crocheting roses to make a couple of Christmas wreaths, one for my mother-in-law and one for me and my little family. Christmas is approaching so fast and I need to step on the gas to get some gifts made for a few friends.
Also, I have been meaning to mention that I ended up making the cabled scarf into a neckwarmer, but I still need to add buttons before I can take some pictures, so soon you will be able to see how it turned out. To be brutally honest with you, I am not crazy in love with crochet cables, maybe I should have used a thinner yarn, because it ends up being quite bulky, that's why I decided to make a neckwarmer instead of scarf, in my opinion it would be too thick for a scarf.
Oh, one more thing, I started hosting play dates, some of the moms and babies of the group I belong to come over and we chat, the kids play, it's a win-win situation. BUT I always like to have something to offer, I bake some cookies, a cake, have hot cocoa, spiced apple cider... but I know that a lot of people love to drink tea, I am not much of a tea drinker (I like coffee better), and for that reason I'd like to ask you guys what kinds of tea should I buy and have at home to offer? Please give me some ideas! Thank you in advance.


  1. I am trying to learn to crochet cables. I would like to give them a try.
    The play dates sound fun. There are some great sampler packs you can buy. Celestial Seasonings has some. That way you can have a variety of teas to offer.


  2. How nice! I love the little roses. I'm sure you will have the Christmas ifts done in no -time.
    My favorite tea is Earl Grey - a good standard to have in the house. Celestial Seasonings has some Christmastime blends out for a limited time. Tazo Green Ginger is also yumyum good. :-)

    BUT I'm with you - i prefer coffee!

  3. You're soooo busy, lovely roses. The play dates sound like fun, now mine are older mums don't come round and all the boys want to do is steal my computer for hours on end and Abi with the girls vanish into the bedroom singing and making potions!

    But tea, now there is something that I could write about, I usually drink earl grey at home (twinnings of course!!), but I do like english breakfast and a christmassy blend would be lovely too - have lots of fun. hugs Debs xx

  4. The scarf is pretty! I do understand the light thing. By the time I get home from work it is dark!

    I am going to be posting my "scrappy" post, which will include the picture of the scarf you sent me!


  5. I can't believe you can finish your projects that fast! Are you a superwoman or am I a loafer? lol

    I wanted to make a Christmas wreath for my family too but in summer it was too early to ask you about the styrofoam ring, later life was really hard on me and now it's too late to have it done - at my pace, I mean.

    Oh, I envy you! Wanna see those wreaths and Lucas' birthday party favours. :-)

  6. I agree with OliveStreetStudio - Earl Grey is always a good one to have on hand. I usually drink it with a splash of milk and sugar - my fav!
