Yarn de-stashing

Hello, my name is Mette,
I'm an yarn addict......
I have boxes and baskets full of yarn in different colors and fibers.
I often buy yarn with no purpose in mind.
It must stop!

I don't have a lot of WIP's and UFO's,
I prefer one knit project at a time.

Since December I have knitted a sweater, a hat, a scarf and 6 pairs of socks - all knitted of yarn from stash.
Totally approx. 1,2 kg yarn.
Honestly, it feels damn good!

I have decided to continue my yarn de-stashing -
do you wanna join me...?

There are no rules, but your own.

I hope to keep the knit mojo and de-stash with some knitted gifts in mind. It's an easy way to great gifts and it's such pleasure.


A few (...blurry..) pictures from the workshop at my home last weekend 
- (how to finish and bind a quilt).
It was such a great day!

Knot quilting with cotton yarn.

Yeeha, put on the gloves and quilt freestyle!

A lot of tips and how tos -
I can't wait to see the quilts after the binding.

Pinky Liberty Love

I try to kick start my sewing mojo with some 
Liberty hexagons.

I love tiny scraps of fabrics -
so simple and lovely.
I think, it's hard to get rid of them or throw it away.......

Tomorrow I have a workshop at home -
four crafty women want to learn, how to finish a quilt.

I hope, they are as exited as I am!!

Feel free to email me, if you want to learn something about patchwork too.

A Glimpse of my January

Long time no see...
I'm still here, despite blog burnout.

A strange thing has happened - I like knitting socks!
I have knitted 4 pairs of socks the past month
- that's a victory!

I've lost my sewing mojo during December,
so I decided to knit, while I'm waiting for my mojo.

I guess therapeutic knitting is good for me -
and a great wait to turn off the thoughts.

Despite the lack of sewing mojo and too little snow
I do my best to enjoy every day in January. I like winter time.

Do you like to knit socks.....?
Perhaps I will plan a sock yarn swap, but I'm not sure,
if anyone think is a great idea.
What do you think...?

Have a crafty, cosy day out there.

Autumn and Apple Galette

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 

I like spring, summer and winter, but
autumn is my favorite season.
What's better than celebrating with Apple Galette?

I love baking with apples and I have been waiting to try this recipe 
- take a look at the other recipes from Homegrown Swedes!
Their videos are lovely and make me relax every time, I see them.

If you like apples too, you better try this lovely galette.

I hope, your sunday is full of joy too.
I'm a sucker for sundays......

Culture Night

September is the month for Culture Night in my town -
here are a few pictures.

Berit Engen invited me to join her in this lovely cottage.
Berit is Hillerød's secret flower woman. She makes amazing
flower arrangements.

Some of my latest quilts and a little teaser for our x-mas market in November.
The paper cones are made by Camilla and I love them!

A lovely night with lots of visitors.
I'm looking forward to our x-mas market -
I better start the to-do list now!

Squash boller med solsikkekerner

Torsdag er brøddag her i huset,
men i dag er det gode rugbrød skiftet ud med en omgang 
squash boller.

Som mange andre bager jeg oftest uden opskrift, men vores yngste datter er i gang med at samle opskrifter i sin egen kogebog.
Derfor har jeg forsøgt at skrive en lille opskrift til hende.

Squash boller med solsikkekerner - ca. 20 styk.

Du skal bruge:

en halv liter lunkent vand
50 g gær
1 stor teske honning
1 æg + 1 til at pensle bollerne med
200 g revet squash
1 spsk. rapsolie
1 håndfuld solsikkekerner
200 g Tipo 00 mel
ca. 4-500 g hvedemel (...her glemte jeg vejningen undervejs)
en nip salt 

Rør gær ud i vandet, tilsæt honning og æg. Herefter tilsættes squash, solsikkekerner og rapsolie - rør rundt, inden Tipo 00 og hvedemel tilsættes. Hvedemelet tilsættes lidt af gangen til dejen er fugtig, men ikke klistret.

Ælt dejen godt i hånden eller på maskine. Lad dejen hæve til dobbelt størrelse i ca. en time. Slå dejen ned og form til boller, der efterhæver til dobbelt størrelse. Pensel med æg og bag bollerne ved 200 grader i 10 - 12 minutter afhængig af din ovn.

God bagelyst, Frederikke.
