Sunday Inspirations

Rally over at Eleven Stitches. I knew I liked that dress for a reason. It looks wonderful on the right shapes!

Intertwined Triskeles is a wonderful embroidered piece. Love the geometry and it is nicely stitched. I like that the green is variegated while the orange is solid. Very lovely.

Sock Froggee is adorable! As you know, I love to knit toys and I think this one is a definite in the future!

The free sock pattern from KnitGeekery is very nifty. I have some yarn that I think might work well with this. Love the movement the pattern creates.

This free Scrappy Doll Pattern from f.pea is adorable. I want to make one. Hopefully I can find the time.

Knit.Sock.Love. is Cookie A's new sock book and right now if you pre-order the book and the pdf download, the down load is only $5.95! Yes, I am thinking about it! My only problem with her patterns is they aren't sized for my large feet. So is the inspiration and the peek into her mind enough?!?!

Recipes I want to try:
Beef with Snow Peas from The Pioneer Woman. I still read her blog even though I can't eat 99% of it any more. Every once in a while there is something that is not only easily made gluten free but also looks good. This might be made soon.

Baked Southwest Egg Rolls with Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce
sound super yummy. I am a fan of southwest egg rolls but haven't had any since I can't eat gluten anymore. I figure with the recipe I can easily exchange the flour tortillas for corn and we are off!

Cream Cheese Chicken and Vegetable Soup
sounds delicious. I like the thought of cream cheese used instead. I think this is definitely worth a try.

Slow Cooker Chicken seems like a good way to cook a chicken. I'll be the first to admit, the only bird I've even cook whole like that is a turkey, but I'd love to try to make chicken. I'll probably replace the dried rosemary with powdered rosemary.


  1. Those recipes sounds good! None of them are on my edible list at the moment, but maybe someday...

  2. As usual, after reading this, I have more things I want to try out.
    Love the little doll, super cute. And of course the socks are great!

  3. Wow. Rally is AWESOME. I don't know that I could see it through though, since I can't even finish a cardigan, scarf, socks...
