My next completed item of clothing for Ruby was far more adventurous. I found, and pinned, this lovely tutorial with free pattern for a peasant dress on Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom ages ago and finally got around to using it a couple of weeks ago.

The tutorial is easy to follow and simple even for a beginner. I added a strip of bias binding near the bottom and made a double bow using this tutorial.

My girl loves anything pink, add butterflies & bows and she’s sold! Its funny that she’s otherwise so at home knee deep in mud…



This recipe makes delicious, chewy centered chocolate chip cookies that R absolutely loved. They definitely satisfy the chocolate craving but have a few healthy goodies in them to counteract the naughty stuff…

Dry ingredients

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • Up to 2 tbs raw sugar

Wet ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp veg oil
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • (optional) 1/4 cup LSA mix (ground linseeds, sunflower seeds & almonds)
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • Extra milk as needed

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Mix dry ingredients together and then add wet ingredients. Add spoonfuls of dough to greased or lined cookie sheets leaving space for the cookies to spread as they rise quite a bit. Bake for approximately 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly golden and the cookies are firm to the touch. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 min and then transfer to a wire rack. Avoid eating them all in one sitting and make sure they are stored out of your toddler’s reach (mine stole quite a few while I wasn’t looking). Enjoy!
