In autumn begins my busiest time of the year, the harvest season. In my garden I pick apples, plums, quinces and grapes and I have a lot to do to process the fruit and often I just give them away 🙂
This year we had many grapes and my husband and I decided to make wine and Tsipouro (grape brandy).
What is Tsipouro and how is it made? For me that was a completely new topic, the world of spirits distillery.
After harvesting, we squeezed the grapes and filled them in large containers. The grapes were about 30 days inside and the sugar fermented into alcohol. The juice became wine and from the fermented grapes we made Tsipouro. Continue reading Autumn with Cat, Fish Bones and Tsipouro

I wanted to crochet a little rabbit for a long time. It was supposed to look like a real rabbit and I wanted to sew as few pieces as possible. I tried this once in the spring, but I was not really happy with my result.

For a long time I wanted to crochet a washing machine. Not one that only consists of a stuffed cube, no, I wanted a drum and a door to it. Since the washing machine, then can not be completely stuffed, I had to find a solution that the whole thing will be stable – and I wanted to make sure that everyone has the necessary materials at home.

Actually I wanted to crochet a gray mouse, but then I decided to make my mouse with the color ecru. Now I had to decide about the colors for the dress, and I thought that gray with a contrasting color looks quite well.
