Trying some Harry Potter Recipes – Hagrid’s Rock Cakes

It's Monday again so I'm trying out another recipe from the Wizarding World! Last week I made Kreacher's French Onion Soup*, so today I wanted to try something sweet instead. * with a side of Feelings. I'm picking up another recipe from  The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by Dinah Bucholz: Hagrid's Rock Cakes. I bet you Harry Potter re-readers…

Bookish Cross-stitch: Bilbo Baggins

I adopted cross-stitch as a hobby because I’m sure I’m an old lady inside and thought I might like it. Of course I did!

But soon enough I discovered that this was not an old lady activity at all. Cross-stitching is so fun and relaxing, and a great way to display pixel art around the house!

Once I started looking at it this way, I knew I had to make a piece inspired by one of my favorite books. And that's how I came with this pattern of Bilbo Baggins (the greatest little hobbit of them all).the-hobbit-cross-stitch-finished-1

DIY Tassel Bookmarks

If there's something a bookworm can't have too much of - apart from books - that's bookmarks. They make it so easy to read multiple books at the same time, jumping between them and instantly continuing were you left. They also make cute handmade gifts! That's why I'm sharing this easy DIY tassel bookmarks tutorial to make at home :)
