while the last few months have been super crazy I have managed to find the time to work on my blanket and work on this super silly hat for my friends new baby. I had some lovey friends give me more yarn for my blanket and I delight in seeing it grow as I add each persons yarn. As for the hat….well I think it speaks for its self. Although I have to say the hardest part was finding breast colored yarn locally that was soft enough for a baby and not too expensive.
This morning my little and I made scones with some blueberries we bought at the farmers market and some raspberries we picked from the garden. these scones were so easy to make and they taste great! I used a recipe from my favorite cooking blog smitten kitchen ( http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2015/07/very-blueberry-scones/). These were so simple that the 3 year old did most of the work and they came together in less than 10 minutes. I did make a few changes to the recipe to make use of what we had. first I added raspberries from the garden and I also replaced the wheat flour with oat since I am out of whole wheat.
