Make & Listen

~ On Thursdays I will post what I have been making and listening to as creations grow. 
If so inclined post, on your blog or flickr, about what you have been making (on your own or with little hands by your side) and listening to while you create. It can be new music, flash backs, a song or a whole album... whatever you like. You can be stitching with needle & thread, yarn, paper crafting, painting, cooking... and beyond. Share what you are making and the tunes that are fueling your creativity. Then come back to my Thursday Make & Listen Along post and leave a link in the comments so we can be inspired right along with you! ~

This week the making in the kitchen started to take shape again, in earnest. After stocking the pantry with the needed flours and such, baked goods actually make it to the table after a long hiatus. 

The Allergen-Free Bakers Handbook came through again with the Morning Glory Muffins. They were yummy and packed full of good stuff like shredded carrots and apples. 

 The twigs on the table are doing what twigs to when they are brought into the heat of the home - they are bursting with leaves. The birch is the most beautiful and bright of them all, but we have been making sure to keep tabs on them all, even the very slow moving alder.

Wes has enjoyed having them on the kitchen table along with the rest of us.
Of the birch he said it is thinking, "Yay! It's spring! ... and now I'm dead!"
All in the name of science and a sneak peek at the spring to come.

I am still making lots of photos as well. Between ice storms, and the never-ending winter, there is much to see and photograph out there. With fresh snow falling almost daily we are certainly getting our bit of winter in this year, no matter what the calendar says.

We are still listening to The Hobit. It is long and takes even longer in short little doses, but is still being thoroughly enjoyed.

Your turn.
Please share what you have been making and the tunes on your playlist. And don't forget to leave a link to your post if you played along so others can visit your Make and Listen posts. 

I have been trying to get around to visit your posts each week (sometimes it takes me a few days) and they are wonderful! Thanks, to all of you who are joining in and linking up!

  3. Those muffins look delish. So happy you are all settled in, must feel good.

  4. This week has been a push to finish a quilt for V. And I've started carving stamps again. I'm really loving it and wishing I had more money to splurge on supplies. :)
