Argyle's for Dad
M and I were watching "Made in Spain". The episode we watched showed Jose traveling through the region were the delicious piquillo peppers are canned. Well Jose took cheese and stuffed the peppers then sauted them. We tried the recipe and it was yummy! Nothing better than melted cheese.
I was house sitting last week and these adorable dolls were sitting on the window sill. They were knit by my friend's mother years ago. I had to take a picture of them since they are cute and I want to try to make some. They look pretty easy to construct. The hardest part would be decorating them.

I just finished a great seed stitch scarf for myself. It keeps me warm and cozy in my cold office. I made it out of 5 balls of Aurora 8. I was going to do the entire thing in ribbing but then decided that I liked the look of seed stitch. I also decided part way through the blue that there was no way that I could finish the thing in blocks of color so I ended up striping it. It matches my new polka dotted bag also.
I spent my holidays in Vermont with my family. I come from a crafty family so there are always projects to work on. My mother might be a little crazy or perhaps I am the crazy one. We have a new tradition of having two Christmas trees and one is dedicated to these little white stars. My mother had the brilliant idea to make hundreds of these stars for a simple white star and white light tree. The only problem was that she didn't understand how to make the stars so she gave the project to me. I must be crazy since I agreed to folder over a hundred stars for her tree. This year she convinced me to make some more for her tree since she will never had enough stars. They sure look pretty though.
