Not so Crafty...

So, I haven't been doing a whole ton of crafts lately. However, I have been cooking quite a bit.
This has been the main culprit. Based on The Pioneer Woman's recipe for Chicken and Dumplings, I've been making this soup about once a week in various forms. We ran out of cornmeal for a while there so noodles and potatoes and other varieties abounded, but all were delicious.

I love making soup when its cold and wintry outside, and it definitely has been cold and rotten here lately.

As for crafting, the wool blanket is ticking along. Almost down to the last big spray, which means the end is nigh.

Straight Lines and Bouillions

This year's Christmas break saw us head down to the quiet countryside. Which is always a great time to get some work done. Apologies for the terrible photo, it was just not happening for me!
It being cold, working on a warm wool blanket was ideal. So I took it down and got a nice chunk of stitching done- mainly all the stem stitch lines. Actually starting to look like the end is in sight!
