Shrove Tuesday

in a hunt for pancake recipes i found bits and piece on the tradition of shrove tuesday, which led me finally to the answer i've been looking for for ages: the answer of how the calculate when easter falls!

according to this site, easter falls on the sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.

now i know, it's off to find the perfect pancake recipe for dinner.
happy pancake eating!

i need winter projects.

and i think this might be the first one ... :

at the moment i keep having ideas, but none seem to get me interested enough to get started. i am crocheting hexagons here and there, which one day (maybe 2011!) will become my second blanket, but i want something to get absorbed in. i really want to start quilting but something is holding me back. probably because in order to plan a pattern, choose fabrics, i really need a full day to myself and that never happens!

so maybe the shawl could be the perfect thing, as i have wanted one for a while, and this one doesn't look too complicated for someone who's terrible at following patterns!
