Catch-Up Clicks :: Part One

My mending pile reached critical mass yesterday and I spent a long-awaited break just sewing little bits of things back into place and ironing on patches.  I've felt behind lately and the triumph of March's clean basement is now April's big mess.  But, I got that pile down a bit and it's time to do the same for links I've been saving since January.  Here's the first installment.

*Inside :: All kinds of sweet handmade stuff from the family at Our Ash Grove.
*At Home I Have a Little Bed :: A sweet movement verse with instructions.
*The Blacksmith :: A Michelmas circle.  I might use this in the Fall.  The children love movement associated with real work.
*Halloween Circle :: You get the drift. Because Willow really likes Halloween.  Enki provides us with a few movements (in the hundreds they offer) about this specific day, but this might be fun, too.
*Swedish Cardamom Coffee Bread :: Cardamom is a spice I am learning to use.  Brace yourself for a lot of Scandinavian links.
*Swedish Rye Bread :: I bought some rye flour awhile back and am looking for ways to use it.  I'm also planning to make some rye'n'injun bread some time soon.
*Pepperkakor :: Another version of a recipe we enjoy.
*Scandinavian Christmas dress :: This looks so sweet.
*Gnome Lovie :: Simple instructions for a towel doll (that is not made out of a towel).
*Gingerbread Snowflakes :: Lots of crafty stuff with a Scandinavian slant.
*Kid Tomte Outfit :: Too cute.  A lot of these require the purchase of another pattern, which is not likely to happen here.  I like to make things using existing clothes for patterns.  And I try to limit clothes to limit the insanity, but I can dream. . .
*Pilot Hats for All :: Another pilot hat pattern.  I love them, love them. This is no secret.
*Natural Play Dough :: We used the recipe with packets of kool-aid to color it.  It has lasted a long time!
*Forest Gnome Baby :: Itty bitty!
*Knowledge through beauty--a pleasure :: On child development from a Waldorf perspective.
*Fighting back against the 'pester power' in kids' TV ads :: Interesting thoughts here.  We don't do any commercials (and very little TV), but magazine ads still sneak in.  Our habit is to tear out any page that has ads on both sides or has garish images.  The children are well-versed in this.  Additionally, I would say that the products themselves are, of course, designed to be commercials in their own right.   You can feel them reaching for you as you walk by.
*30-Minute Rolls :: To raise the mood a bit.  These take longer, as everything does that promises speed.  They are a little heavy, but they are very tasty and reheat well.

Speaking of food, time to cook some bacon!  Happy Saturday!

We have that very postcard on display right now! I am enjoying your links here. I love all the Scandinavian things; we are very drawn to Scandinavian culture. I make a cardamom coffee cake with sliced almonds, which I am now craving. : )

The coffee cake sounds so tasty. Now, I just need an occasion to make it. I could bake a yeast bread every single day.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
