October Favorites

Wednesday, November 1, 2023

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Favorites post! I'm transitioning Friday Favorites to monthly favorites! Today's post is extra long, since it's been a while. Catch up on previous posts here: Friday Favorites Archives

- I loved making these sweet stuffed kitties using the new Ghost Kitties Tutorial by Ann Wood Handmade. I made one to look like Dusty and the other two to look like my Mom's cats!

- My next crochet project is these Christmas Amigurumi by Lalylala, and I'm so excited! There is another set too.

- Love the colors in these pillows by Brooke.

- This scrappy quilt by Dana is so cheerful!

- How cute is this new Bunny Bunch pattern by Elizabeth Hartman?

- I made myself a patchwork coat this summer (that still needs photographing) and would like to make more patchwork garments. This dress by Ersa Fibers caught my eye!

- I made two cakes this summer/fall, the first is this Flourless Chocolate Wave Cake. It is now my go-to chocolate cake! It's from the book Dessert Person by Claire Saffitz*.

- The other cake we made was the Big Apple Crumb Cake by Smitten Kitchen. It was a great way to use some of the apples we got in our CSA. We liked it so well we made it twice!

- We discovered this delicious Couscous Lentil Greek Salad recipe and made it a bunch of times with cherry tomatoes from our garden this summer, it's from the book I Dream of Dinner by Ali Slagle*.

- I couldn't resist this card from Trader Joes, it was just too perfect! It was designed by Design House.

- There are so many cute stamps available right now. I ordered these Thinking of You stamps, these Winter Woodland stamps and these Tomie dePaola stamps.

- We recently discovered (and binged!) the show All Things Great and Small. It's just the kind of lighthearted show we need at the moment!

- We also watched The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. It was really sweet!

- I bought my first CD in many years, The New Abnormal by The Strokes*. I still have a CD player in my car, and I really wanted something new to play!

- Dusty has been enjoying using my crochet scrap basket as a bed, haha!

Have a Great Weekend!
