Random Joy


Hi, dear friends!

I hope you are healthy, happy and having a good time.

I certainly am.


Here are a few cute things that made me smile recently and which I’d like to share with you…

… like starting a new big, big crocheting project. I craved something bigger that would take a bit longer to make. I am somewhere in the middle of the process and I’ve loved every single moment so far…

New Pattern ~ Crochet Cell Phone Cover


A new pattern has been born – yay!

Cheesy Herbed Popovers


These are the first popovers I’ve ever made in my whole life.

I hadn’t known much about them before… just until the day when I noticed a gorgeous post over on Tracy’s blog where she, as I see it, convinced all people of this planet to make their own popovers immediately. Because there’s just no other way they can keep on living their lives. That’s how delicious Tracy’s recipe looked.

So I gave them a try.

And liked them a lot.

At first sight, they might seem like a drier kind of bread thing, but they are not. They are moist, light and airy… like puffed up savory pancakes. But most of all, they are amazingly tasty.

Their flavor is a perfect combination of cheese, thyme and oregano goodness. And there’s also a little bit of black pepper involved which really does the trick.

And the fun part? You need no fancy popover pans. These were prepared in a mini muffin pan and it worked out perfectly.



You want to make your own popovers? Here’s what you need…



1. First, in a larger bowl, mix the milk, eggs, flour, 2 tbsp (30 grams) melted butter, salt, pepper and the herbs.

You can see a bit more herbs in the picture above. I was in a very generous mood when I was making my first batch, I admit. I made them again the other day with less herbs, and that tasted better.

New Pattern ~ Crochet Chicks


I am sending you my warm greetings from this happy place where crocheting currently rules the world.

Like seriously, I am obsessed with yarns and hooks right now, can’t stop it, it’s stronger than me, and I am blissfully giving in …aaah!

I dream about spring projects, have so many on my mind… this time of year is sooo inspiring and invigorating.

Anyhow, I really liked and appreciated your response to this little chick when I posted a picture of it in my last post.

And now, as promised, I also have a PATTERN for you, so now you can create your cute little chick too…

Or an army of them, just like I did.



The pattern offers a step-by-step picture tutorial with 50 pictures, so it will be a snap to make one.




Look, they can hide a sweet treasure, if you want them to.

Kids would love this.




And it is really funny to look them in the eyes.

I can get lost in them for hours… hehe, not really. But they totally make me laugh.
