busy baking weekend

Yesterday I baked, and baked, and baked.

All the cookies (and the brownies) are for a care package to my cousin in Iraq.

On top of all my cookie baking, I decided to make pizza for dinner.

Today I made Smitten Kitchen's breakfast apple granola crisp. I'm so beat from all this cooking and baking that I didn't get any pictures of the apple crisp. Oh well. Such is life.

pretty dish mat

Using this idea from Amanda Soule's book, I re-purposed one of our old bath towels into a dish drying mat.

I used a Moda Central Park charm pack that I picked up from The Quilting Loft awhile back. I used the quilt-as-you-go method and added some simple bias tape around the edge.

I have a few more old bath towels that need a new life, so I think I'll make some more of these.

new hair

Well, it's still my old hair, just a new look.

My now-tiny ponytail.

This should give you an idea of how much I cut off. Roughly 4 or 5 inches, depending on the dread. They were a bunch of different lengths, anyhow.

My head feels so much lighter now. =)

this moment

From my walk last weekend.

Starting to sprout.
