Crochet Baby Blanket with felt motive

This is my first baby related post and I am so excited. I am now 21 weeks pregnant and finally feeling better and happy to share my news.
During the first few months I have kept myself busy but I just didn’t find enough additional strength to write any posts.
Anyway this is the first baby blanket I made. At the time I made it I didn’t know the baby’s gender and so I tried to keep it as neutral as possible but I wanted it to be as colourful as possible. Obviously you could change the colours to pinks or blues if you wanted to.

The perfect Sandwich Bread

I love making bread, the kneading, the smell that rises from the oven and the immense satisfaction when the perfect loaf sits on the kitchen counter.

Yellow Haddock, New Potatoes and Peas

This is one of my husbands child hood food memories. Fresh poached smoked haddock, served with new potatoes and peas. How very English!?!


The perfect "lighter" meal for springtime I would say!

Chicken Tikka Makhani

This is another one of our favourite “take away” recipes, this one I found on the Great British Chefs site. Tastes just as good as the popular Chicken Korma! The Chicken Tikka Makhani is based on a tomato sauce and a little spicier than the Korma but still fine for the whole family!


In search for perfect Baby Booties "continued"... I found them!!

These are more what I have been looking for!  You can find the original post and pattern at Tao of Craft – Modern baby booties here


They are gorgeous as they are but the possibility of dressing them up to make them a little more special are tempting…ribbons, buttons, gems…. For my first attempt I used some red ribbon and made two bows to decorate the straps.

In search of the perfect baby boots

My sister in law, my cousin and my work friend are all expecting babies early this year. I thought it would be nice to make them a quilt for their babies as well as a pair of booties and matching bibs.
I am all set with the quilts but I am now looking for inspiration on baby boots.
