Another rain storm kept us home most of the weekend, but it was nice and cozy inside with a little baking and handcrafts. We made baklava (a Turkish/Greek cookie) with ground walnuts & cinnamon between flaky fillo and way too much butter and sugar...yum! Such a dangerous thing to have sitting around on the kitchen counter. Especially with the addition of chocolate on the top. Thank goodness we only make this once a year. In the meantime, we finished our falling leaves mobile. Initially we thought a small grapevine wreath would look neat to suspend the felt leaves from, but ended up using a round bamboo purse handle instead. Which actually worked quite nicely. The leaves are sewn together with different colors, so that when they turn the colors change. We also used some of the felt beads we made earlier in September, that I shared about in a previous post here. I wanted to keep this simple, but the addition of a few sequins and shiny beads added just enough sparkle, like rain drops and dew. I really like it.
