Broccoli Cheese Soup

broccoli and cheese soup recipe

With fall in full swing, I often find myself contemplating the amazing beauty it brings. In my world, the loveliest thing about this season is comfort food (what else is new?). And confetti colored leaves. And warm blankets. And Holiday cookies looming on the horizon.

Mmmm, sweet sweet fall.

With the above mentioned mood in my soul I prepared a really comforting soup for you today. It combines broccoli, carrots and a lot of cheese and is deliciously creamy. The epitome of comfort, don’t you think?

You can find all the necessary details below…

Crochet Owl Coasters Have Landed In The Shop

crochet owl coasters

From time to time I receive a question asking me whether I sell actual crochet products in my shop. I reply that I design the items and make patterns, but maybe one day… And that day has come. I just had this strong feeling recently that I should be nice and polite and make some real stuff for those of you who like crocheted items but haven’t yet mastered this craft. As crochet owls are the product that you guys seem to like a lot in my shop, it was very easy for me to choose what to make.

The colorful project that I showed you in my last post is all finished. For a while I dared change my old crochet-pattern-making ways and decided to make a few owl coasters. I made 32. Originally, I thought it would take me a week. It took me a month instead. A very sweet month, though.

Now onto dividing the coasters into colorful sets of 4 and into the shop they fly.

Will be back with more info soon.

Lately I have been trying to find bits and pieces of free time to work on my new colorful project. I will tell you more about it as soon as it’s finished and presentable. For now, I would like to share some of the colorful deliciousness that’s lying on my table right now.

Have I already mentioned that I loooove to crochet?!

And have I mentioned I loooove colors?!
