Chinatown remixed

It's surprisingly difficult to take a picture of all of the members of a seven person band while its moving...

Garden Update

The first signs of ripening in my balcony garden have appeared! Very exciting! My other tomato is heavy with fruit, but they're very green.

Cheese update

Two weeks in the fridge, and my cheese has developed a good, if patchy, halo of fuzz! For the next four to six weeks, I need to keep turning it regularly, and the fuzz should be compacted into the 'crust' of a good Camembert.

Blanket Progress

So, I really slowed down on my creating in the second half of June, because I was knitting furiously on this blanket! I have 8 (almost 9) of 14 squares, but I'm really not sure I can finish by the deadline (it's a gift).

It's funny, because I knit all the time, yet I rarely feel like I'm creative. Mostly because it takes so long to actually produce anything. I really did enjoy the challenge of trying to make something new every day, even if I didn't make it to the end.

Day 26: Cheese! #30daysofcreativity

I made cheese!! (well, actually, I watched someone else make cheese, and got to take some of the results home)

I have assisted in the making of mozzarella, and a failed batch of mozzarella that became ricotta, before but this required far more steps. It will become camembert (after 6-8 weeks in my fridge). I have to say that pressing cheese with a mold is a much easier process (instead of wrestling with a sheet of cheesecloth).

(Yes, I'm aware that Cheese was actually a few days ago.)
