Liz loves to cook so Dana put together a group basket full of kitchen items. I decided to crochet a few of these. I'm loving the crochet gifts--it gives me time to think about the person/people I'm giving them to and to pray over them. I really treasure that time.
I found the yarn for these at Goodwill for a great price (love finds like those!!)! I ended up loving the pattern and will have to make some for me. The are so thick and a great size! I was really happy with how they turned out!
The gift itself is something I love to do for new married couples. It came from something Ralph and I loved to do for each other as newlyweds. We would sneak out of bed early and make each other breakfast in bed. It was always spontaneous but so much fun. Now we take the extra moments to snuggle and sleep and then fix breakfast together. I wanted to capture some of that newlywed excitement in a gift so I came up with this.
*Spoiler alert* If you've received a wedding present from me over the last couple years, I'm revealing my true thriftiness here.
This time I used this Homemade Whole Wheat Pancake Mix. I doubled the recipe and had some left for us. We had them over the weekend and they were VERY YUMMY. I think this recipe is a keeper! (She has a chai tea concentrate recipe on there I think I need to try too.)
Hope this inspires some of you DIYer's from A Soft Place to Land. Thanks for stopping by!
