favorite thing:

cold-brew-coffee

cold-brew-coffee


aka toddy coffee

how to make coldbrew coffee:
supplies: mason jar, bowl, coffee grounds, water, metal sieve, coffee filter, funnel
1/4c-1/3c course ground coffee (remember: good beans=good coffee)
1 1/2c room temperature water
put coffee and water in jar, stir with spoon until combined, put on lid, and let it sit. 3 hours minimum, but overnight for best flavor
in the morning, put sieve in bowl. open jar, pour coffee gunk through the sieve into the bowl.
discard coffee grounds (good for garden and compost!)
rinse out mason jar really well. put funnel in top of mason jar, put coffee filter in funnel. pour coffee from the bowl, through the coffee filter and into the mason jar. let it sit and filter through.
when it’s done, remove filter and funnel, cap jar and put in fridge until you are ready to use.
if you are ready, pour over ice, and add water or creamer, sip and enjoy.
want it hot? okay! add hot water. want it strong? don’t add any water! drink it straight!

Look at all the pretties!!!!

Published by Meghan under Babble,Felt,Spinning

I had my Nuno felting class today, and it was SUCH FUN! I made some cute little sample squares just to get the basic idea, and we got enough silk and roving to make a scarf at home! i can’t wait!

look at my pretties!!!

This one is my favorite!

Reminds me of VanGogh’s starry night, don’t you think?

PLUS, the teacher and i really hit it off, and she sent me home with another 2oz of merino silk roving so i could try spinning it up! she said she also has a TON of roving at home, so if i wanted i could come over and check out what she’s got! she has like 5 sheeps worth of processed wool!  she’s actually going to cast on this week for a sweater that she is knitting up with handspun wool she spun on her DROP SPINDLE! an ENTIRE sweater’s worth of yarn on a drop spindle!!! i’m totally amazed!!!
