Knitting and Baking and NaNo, oh my!


In between the work and the NaNoWriMo prep (come find me, I'm Denizb33 on the site!), I'm still knitting and baking a lot.

A fruit cake that turned into a crumble...

Vanilla icebox cookies dipped in chocolate!

A special birthday cake!

It took three tries, but I've nearly perfected these Sally's Baking Addiction chocolate chip cookies! Next step is to make them smaller, but just as yummy!

First snowfall on the Alps! September 2020

A baby blanket for a colleague!

All about knitting in Yorkshire, from Amanda Owen, the Yorkshire Shepherdess's books

A random flower that appeared in the pot in which the dill failed!

Morning yoga beside Lac Leman, bliss!

I'm thinking of tackling a murder mystery for the first time during NaNoWriMo. Not a suspense, not a romantic suspense, but an actual murder mystery... Nothing to lose, right? If it doesn't work out, I have the elements in place to switch it to a second-chance romance! All I need is the heroine's name...

Will you be taking part in NaNoWriMo?


I'll take a vanilla icebox cookie please.
Go for the murder mystery!
Hi Deniz - wonderful idea to do yoga by the lake - looks so invigorating ... but congratulations on Dylan reaching two ... yay growing so much. Good luck with NaNo. Snow already - guess that's the way it is ... take care - Hilary

A couple years ago I made a number of fruitcakes, they were good (especially after soaked in bourbon), but took so long! Love your pictures and good look in the November writing program. ( have never tried this as November is not a month I have a lot of free time.

I try it at Christmas and they do turn out well.
