♥Things I'm Loving♥

Not a lot of crochet time lately now that Mr. Boy is down to one parent.  (Daddy is in Indonesia on business.)
So I've been doing a lot of browsing and playing on-line.

Here's a few things that I've found that I'm loving:

Boat and Tote bags from LL Bean.  There's just something so classic and timeless about them and now you can customize your own.  I've been playing around with different colors and combinations all week. Here's a link to one of my favorite custom combos if you want to check it out.

This quick bread recipe from Inside a Black Apple.

I changed it up a bit.  I used 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 2/3, and instead of just 1 cup of walnuts, I added 1/2 cup each of walnuts, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips.  It came out sooooooo delicious! My picture doesn't do it justice.  Just try it because it's super easy to make and it tastes like something you slaved over.  I'll bet you have all of the main ingredients in your kitchen right now.  I did!

I can't wait to try these Salon Effects nail polish strips from Sally Hansen.

I've already bought some, but haven't had the chance to actually try them out yet.  Pictures will follow when I do.

Thank you, Ladies! Andrea you'll find that I find it almost impossible to bake without adding chocolate. Haha!
BTW- This bread is even better the 2nd day! It has the loveliest flavor and texture to it. Try it!

The quick bread looks delicious.

I weave with a Kromski Harp (a rigid heddle loom). You can read about my first project here, http://oiyi.blogspot.com/2010/06/my-first-rigid-heddle-weaving-project.html . I can go on and on about weaving and my loom. If you want more info, I will gladly email you.
