Pokrývka čajové konvice - Tea cozy


Uz dlouho si rikam, ze usiji tepelnou "cepicku" na cajovou konvici. Caj piji od rana do vecera, zeleny, bily, bylinkovy, ovocny, stridam je pravidelne a mohli by jste si vybrat nejmene z dvaceti druhu, kdyby jste se u me na salek caje zastavili :) Dnes slavime narozeniny kamaradky a ja i kdyz darek uz mam koupeny, jsem ji dnes jeste narychlo usila tuhle pokryvku na konvici. Snad se ji bude libit ....

I want to make a tea cozy for a long time. I drink tea all day long, green, white, fruit, herbal, I mix then up all the time and if you would stop for a cup of tea at my place, you could pick from at least twenty different varieties of tea :) Today, we are celebrating friends birthday and even thought I had a present already, this afternoon, I also made her this tea cozy. I hope that she'll like it ......




Zabaleno a nachystano na cestu .....

Packed and ready to go.....

Kdysi jsem se tady zminovala o tom ze rada maluji. Kazdy ctvrtek se schazime s partou stejnych nadsencu. Tento tyden jsme zhledly prezentaci Briana Buckrella, ktery nam predvedl svou techniku malby.

Makeef's 1

V sobotu jsme oslavili Makeefa prvni narozeniny. V predvecer oslavy jsem mu jeste stacila usit maleho medvidka :)

Saturday, we celebrated Makeef's first birthday. I managed to make him this little bear the night before :)


Oslava byla moc hezka, myslim, ze i Makeef si to uzil, mel tam spoustu kamaradu sveho veku a take dospelaci se nenudili.

It was a nice party, Makeef had his little bodies there and also we adults had a good time.


Dcera mu udelala papirovou cepicku a na triko nasila kravatu ve stejne barve.

My daughter made him this party hat and sewed the tie on his shirt in coordinated color.

Hezkeho Valentyna!

Happy Valentines Day!

KEFIR

Mnohe z vas asi uz nekdy slysely o kefirovych zrnech nebo kefirove kulture. Nebudu se tady podrobne rozepisovat o tom, co uz napsali jini, treba pani Jarmila Teplikova ma velice informativni stranky. Ja si zrnka privezla pred vice nez deseti lety z navstevy cech ale pri odjezdu na dovolenou v nasledujicim roce a po preruseni vyroby jsem se uz ke kefiru nevratila. Posledni dobou jsem ale premyslela, ze si je zase obstaram a jak uz to tak nekdy chodi, ona si "obstarala" mne. Nekdo je nebizel v inzerci mistnich novin a ja si je druhy den dovezla domu :) Od te doby piju nejmene 2x denne cerstvy kefir, delam z kefiru tvaroh, vymyslim nove recepty, kde bych mohla kefir vyuzit. Pridavam do ovocnych poharu, zadelavam s nim testo na vafle, chleba a ruzne buchty, zkratka mleko nahradim v receptu kefirem. Jako mala a mlada holka se slovo kefir, zakysana smetana, ci kysele mleko prede mnou nesmelo ani vyslovit, tak jsem to vse nemela rada. Ted si na kefiru pochutnam, delam ho hodne husty a vychlazeny je naramne lahodny. Pouzivate take kefir a mate nejake dobre recepty na jeho vyuziti ?

Lots of you probably heard about kefir grains or kefir culture before. I am not going to write about it here, since there is so much information out there already. More here. I brought the grains back with me from one of my visits to Czech many years ago and made kefir for about a year before I stopped due to our holiday. I never went back to it. For a while now, I was thinking about it and decided to find the culture again. I didn't have to, it found me :) I saw an add in the local paper last week and the next day a brought it home. Since then I am drinking at least 2 cups of kefir every day, I am making quark cheese from kefir, I am testing new recipes where I can use it. I add it to smoothies, to waffle batter, bread, cakes. I replace the milk in the recipes with it. When I was young, you couldn't even say the word kefir, buttermilk or sour cream front of me, I just distaste it so much.Now, I drink at least two cups of it every day and I savor it. It's thick and smooth. Do you consume kefir as well and do you have a good recipe how to incorporate it in your food ?

Deka žinylkovou technikou - Heirloom cut chenille baby blanket


O vikendu jsen usila tuhle detskou deku.I kdyz prikladam link na blog kde jsem ji objevila, a kde najdete podrobne nafoceny postup, chtela bych vam trosku priblizit, jak jsem se stim "poprala" ja. Misto tri vrstev flanelu jsem pouzila dve, z vrzchni latkou jsou to tedy celkem tri vrstvy a myslim, ze to uplne staci. Prosivane rady jsou asi 1cm - ridila jsem se ryskou na sicim stroji abych nemusela merit. Koupila jsem si na strihani pomucku ale zkusila jsem strihat nuzkami a jde to take pekne, takze se bez ni obejdete. Latky a dokoncena deka se perou az po usiti! Pouzivam susicku na pradlo ale myslim, ze neni potreba, prouzky se roztrepily uz v pracce, tim deka nabyde a je hezky "hunata". Prosivani je sice zdlouhave a zpotrebovala jsem 4 spulky niti ale vysledek stoji za to, 100% se brzy pustim do dalsi :)


Over the weekend I made this Heirloom cut chenille baby blanket. I am including link for the blog where I found this baby blanket tutorial. I used only two layers of flannel instead of three and I think it's totally sufficient. I love it, this is by far my favorite baby blanket ever! I had fun making it and I will be starting another one soon :)
