Mistress of Spices


Mom's spice tin - basics of Indian cooking

Sorry for putting up a few picture posts – I’m working on various Easter presents, so as soon as I have a chance to catch up, I’ll be posting some finished objects and WIP pictures


My weekend project

red yarn

yarn I dyed fire red

The yarn has a high nylon content, so I used Jacquard dyes since they seem to work well on yarns with a higher man-made fiber content. The color is Fire Red, and I’m really happy with the finished color. I need that color for an Easter project – I’ll post more about it once it’s finished.

Dyeing the yarn was lots of fun, so I think I’ll be experimenting some more in the future.

Easter is coming

and I’m making Easter presents. I’m thinking of making another one of these:

A bunny for Easter

It’s a fast and simple knit, and looks so cute. I’m also making some wood puzzles for my friends’ one year old kiddies, so one I’ve finished sanding them I’ll post some pictures. I guess this is going to be a crafting weekend.


… I’ve got to get them done. I’ve been doing other fun stuff, but it’s time to face the facts. April 15th is just a few days away. No more procrastinating. I need to finish them this Sunday, or I’ll forbid myself from knitting, reading and photography. Yup, I’m coming down hard on myself.

So it might take a day til I put up new content. Sorry!
