So with the shorter days, cooler nights and autumnal backdrop, I have been thinking about soups. I think I am going to try to make some new soups this fall. I would like to try this Curried Carrot and Parsnip soup, recipe provided by fortysomething.ca . I love all of her recipes and they always work out so well!
I am also working on some fall projects. A little cardi for me, some pajama pants from scratch and maybe some freezer paper stenciling - new to me!
Since my last post, I did manage to complete a little cardigan for a friend who is having her baby shower next month. It is knit with Brown Sheep cotton fleece, so even though it is a cotton sweater, it has some weight and will hopefully be a cosy little addition. I am picturing it over a long sleeved onesie or a little dress. I found this pattern on Ravelry. It's the Baby Eyelet Cardi. Thanks to Linda at clickertyclick for the pattern.
I am especially pleased with the little label I made for the inside with some scrap pink and white linen. I used some fabric paint and an alphabet stamp set to hand stamp her name. I always think its nice, particularly for kids' clothes, to have personalized labels. Hope she likes it!
