Episode 262

I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude this week.  These meditations have been fueled by webinars, conversations with friends, and reading.  In this episode, I share some of those thoughts, as well as the details of my finished Bressay, an acorn squash recipe that is makes a special addition to any fall menu, and some new stitching projects.


THE BACK PORCH

Oh, I love this sweater.  Complete, and I mean COMPLETE details can be found on my Ravelry entry for this project.


EVER-EXPANDING SKILL SET

Acorn squash with coconut custard filling — fresh out of the oven (above) and drizzled with cider syrup (below).  This dish is dynamite.  I love the sweet and savory notes; hint of sage, vanilla, and orange.  It is very special and plates up delightfully!


AND SEW FORTH

Shisha stitched ornaments will be going out to special friends and family this holiday season. I was fortunate to learn this technique from a TATTER class.  Check out their offerings, as well as the quarterly journal which launched this weekend.  Issue 1: Isolation. So visually compelling and containing lots of inspiration.
