In the last four weeks I made another mochila, an order from my colleague. It's my fifth mochila and I'm a bit full of it. So I guess this will be the last mochila you will see from my hand for quite a while.
It's almost King's Day, the day where the citizens of The Netherlands celebrate their majesty's birthday. The big day is next friday and because the king's surname is Van Oranje, which means From Orange, basically everything you can think of will be orange. I myself crocheted an orange little crown that fits around my Flemish Giant's ear. So if he wasn't my king bunny before, than now he is.
Look at him, so handsome. Of course you also can attach the little crown to a hair pin and wear it on your head.
I altered the pattern a little bit, but you can find the original pattern here!
As told earlier this week, when showing you the orange crown that I crocheted for King's Day, worn by our bunny, it's King's Day today in The Netherlands. King's Day is celebrated on the birthday of the king. The whole country turns orange, from clothes to balloons and from food to decoration, sometimes variated with red/white/blue. The surname of the king is Van Oranje, which means from orange, and the colors red, white and blue come from the Dutch flag, which from top to bottom is striped red, white and blue.
My 8 year old daughter really wanted to bake a cake for today and made her own design: orange on the outside and red, white and blue layers on the inside. On top she wanted to have red, white and blue vanes and orange banners.
I just helped her a little bit here and there, but she made it mostly all by herself! Love it!
Three layers of biscuit
And here's a picture of one of the many, many Chai Teas that I made this week! Such a great this recipe is! An absolute recommend!
My muffin tin was rusty and old (not that strange after twenty years of frequent use), so I bought a new one a couple of days ago. That means that I was on the look out for nice cupcake recipes this week and I found this one with hazelnuts, orange, carrots and cream cheese. Sounds like a great combi!
