They are shabby pictures, but they do their job. I took what follows on my sidekick and emailed them to myself; that will have to be the way until I get my card reader up and running. (When I get there, I have so many OR pictures to share from our trip.)
First I want to share some baking that I did just before we left. I had an intense desire for cupcakes the night before our flight and I found the recipe for Magnolia cupcakes (which I hoped that my dear fan of SNL's "Lazy Sunday" would be excited about...I am giving this very sterile link to the clip because I think the definitions are rich and you can link to the video near the bottom ;)). So they were a pretty classic recipe and very easy to make and crazy delicious.
They also come in the wedding color trifecta.
So as promised to the yahoo SnB, I am posting pics of the crocheted patterns that I figured out this weekend while up north.
The first is unique to my fiance's grandmother. I used Encore.
The second is one that I my grandma was famous for making but I never could figure hers out because the ombre made the moves a bit confusing. My mom often suggested that I take one apart, but I couldn't bear it. So, my fiance's grandma had made a striped one out of a light color and it suddenly became blaringly obvious. (I'll share how soon ;)...maybe tomorrow ;).) These in the picture are going to be thank you gifts for my future in-law's hospitality. For this, I used Lily Cotton from Michael's. I am going to try to stay away from 100% acrylic only because I think that one of my other hurtles in figuring it out was that the older ones had melted a little through many years of use.
Anywho, they may seem homely but I think they are glorious. Did anyone else's grandmothers make these? What would you say your grandma or mother was famous for making ;)?
