Snippet Sunday

Been a busy week here, but not on the house cleaning front. Still haven't finished that, and what with the dust, it looks just as bad as when we arrived.  I'll get to it. Soon. Soon.

In the meantime, I've been making:

- sourdough starter (let the other one die while struggling through the first trimester)
- kimchi
- dilly beans
- makdous (combined this recipe and this one)
- homemade body butter (riffed off this recipe)

And I started a little sketch while S does her art.  And the blanket. Slow progress, but I think I finally have a suitable join-as-I-go technique down. Took me many false starts to find something I'm OK with. It isn't perfect, but I think it will do.
