This is quite a work! A hooped pink fuzzy conversation piece. And it was 3 feet tall. Would you have left it behind?

I had never made anything with poms before and I love their effect! I used up many scraps of left-over yarn and have 91inches of wall hanging I really adore! I used grey wool felt as the base and coiled and glued for many weeks. Their method is available as a DIY, but is really hard! Just coil and glue my friends. It cost a few dollars for the felt and the poms.

I loved this at first sight. Happy and foody and a little bit chippy. The scallops are perfect. It will be great hung on a wall and I’ve added it to my etsy shop.

This week’s haul of kids clothes. I threw away three pairs of pants with butchered knees and was thankful to find replacements. I do select thrifted clothes very carefully. Gone are the days when I could buy a size without having the child try it on and be confident that it fit, so clothes must be perfectly sized and of good quality. These are from left to right Gap, Gap, Gap, Gap, and Old Navy and while these brands matter not as a sign of status, they usually mean the clothes will last well and have good hand-me-down value. $10 for all.

We love to eat dim sum, the food of a Chinese brunch. While on a quest to make some at home we succeeded in making very passably yummy steamed buns, or baozi. We used this recipe and made up a filling with lots of pork, ginger and garlic. It was fun and good and budget friendly! Also MSG-free. Also a great family activity.
