Weekend doings and a giveaway winner

This weekend was so restful and refreshing. K and I did make it out of the house to run errands, but the majority of our time was spent holed up at home, keeping snug and warm.

I did a little sewing...

Wrapped up in a ripple rainbow (great for chasing the winter blues away) and read this fascinating book for class...

Baked a British loaf from a breads of the world book I got at the library...

and picked a winner for the eye pillow giveaway. 

Congrats, Lisa, it's you! (I've sent you an email--just send me your address and I'll get a pretty eye pillow to you).

I want to thank everyone who entered the giveaway. Thank you! Your comments were lovely. It's so interesting to hear how other people relax! I think I've picked up a few tips.

**What did you do this weekend?**

p.s. I've got this winter manifesto as my desktop wallpaper, and it's been making me so happy all weekend! I thought you might like it, too.


  1. What a fun and productive weekend you had! What class is the book for? Your bread looks wonderful- I love the act and the smell of bread baking nothing compares.

  2. Well congratulations to Lisa on winning the eye pillow! That bread looks soooo yummy! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.

  3. That bread looks delicious. I really should bake more yeast breads -- they are definitely rewarding. And I love your ripple afghan. Sounds like a good weekend. I spent mine sewing costumes for the school musical. Cow costumes, no less -- I don't care to see white and black-spotted fabric ever again.

  4. Mmmm. Bread.

    I did a double take when I saw that book. I've been wanting to read it for about two years. I have a thing about only buying books (except craft & photography) at our local used bookshop. They haven't had it...and I'm at the point where I think I will have to shuck the buck and get it new. Crazy. Is it worth the $$?

  5. Oh, rats! I missed the giveaway!!! Sigh.

    Your weekend sounds lovely - cozy and relaxing...

    We hiked in the woods, ate homemade pancakes, and acquired a new pet fish (we were really just supposed to get dog food - and somehow got talked into bringing a fish home by a certain little guy who can be very persuasive).


  6. I missed the giveaway! Your eye pillows are so lovely!
    And it looks like you had a wonderful weekend. :)
    I *pretended* I was snowed in and took many naps, read a lot and made progress on the next baby quilt!
