Lovelyarns’ Sue Caldwell did a delightful yarn bombing at South Moon Under at Harbor East, Baltimore MD.

Sue Caldwell of Lovelyarns has done more in Baltimore to bring positive attention to yarnbombing than anyone I know. She has knit cozies for the Hampden area’s trees, parking meters, and other objects; she’s covered port-a-potties at Artscape; and now she’s adorned Harbor East with some warm and fuzzy work! See the whole album at Lovelyarn’s Facebook page.

Banana Flax Crackers from Undressed Skeleton

Another gluten-free, quick recipe – this time, with only TWO ingredients, how much simpler can it be? I wonder if sesame seeds could be subbed out, too?
