Little Flower Bookmark (new pattern!)

Hello again! Since mother's day is coming up I decided to remake one of my favorite knitting gifts and write up a pattern for it. It's these adorable little flower bookmarks!

Super cute, right? They are also easy and quick to make, although I do make them a bit more complicated by sewing a felt backing with embroidery onto the leaf. Either way though, you can easily finish one in a day--perfect if you are scrambling for a nice present!

even more food!

I'm back with some more food updates! Basically, I just want to show off the vegetable pot pie I've made. I love pot pie, and it's such a great dish because you can basically put whatever you want in the filling. For this pie, I had potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms. It turned out great!

more cooking!

I've been doing a very good job, if I say so myself, of actually cooking! I do tend to repeat meals, and so I thought I'd show some of my favorites.

Lentil curry is a great meal for perpetually broke a graduate student like me, because it can be made entirely from long-lasting ingredients, and is quite filling. Mine does have coconut milk in it, which I store in the freezer to make it last longer. Otherwise the curry is just lentils, carrots, and potatoes, on top of rice.
