Happy (belated) New Year!

A few glimpses from what’s been going on at MadSilence recently:

The coldest year in the last 10 leaves us with non-stop piles of snow! I've forgotten what the sun looks like @_@

Cute Snowbunny

I found this cute little snowbunny living on the boat-shaped bridge in Kenrokuen, the famous garden!


Cranberry muffins

Cranberry muffins made in my brand-new silicone muffin molds! Nothing like baking to heat up a cold house.

Recipe for the muffins can be found here – I used orange-flavored cranberries (strange, right?) that really added a little oomph.  I bet a little orange zest would do wonders!


Knitting up manly Irish wristwarmers as a late Xmas gift <3

Pattern is here.  A great first-time-cabling project!

Centerpiece training!

Lastly, expanding my flower repetoir into wedding and event flowers! Here's my first attempt at a centerpiece using roses, thistle, fern, sweet pea, carnation...

Hope y’all are staying warm!

    Gorgeous Kenrokuen photo! I was sad that there was no snow there when I visited in Jan ’08… I have to go back, visit Kanazawa again.
