Patchwork Sewing Kit

This pattern is one that I admired for a long time before making it, being uncertain of my patchwork and quilting skills. But after making a small quilt for my dog a while back, I decided I should give it a shot!

First cooking forays!

I moved into my apartment--and that means I actually have to feed myself. So I've been doing some cooking, and I'm pretty happy with it so far!

I've made breakfast potatoes, peanut curry, and some other things, but what I'm most proud of are my cinnamon apples in a skillet:

And my scones! I made scones for tea today, and they turned out great. Homemade scones fresh from the oven are the best. Also it is exciting that my oven actually works--it's a bit sketch.

You can see my pretty mug in the last picture--polish pottery is one of my favorite types of ceramics, and it holds up extremely well.

Anyway, I'm pretty proud of myself so far. :) Now I just have to keep it up!
