Working Small

Since a lot of you really liked my Bird's Nest necklace, I made a baby bird's nest stitch marker for the giveaway. Just like the necklace, it's made with sterling silver wire and freshwater pearls. It is so small and cute. The original pendant is on the right to show scale.
Continuing the theme of making small thing into the kitchen, I made Jam-Doughnut Muffins from How to Be a Domestic Goddess. They are baked in a mini muffin pan and dipped in melted butter and rolled around in sugar. I dipped 2 in butter and thought it was overkill, so the rest was rolled in sugar without the butter. I filled half with blueberry jam and the other half was filled with raspberry. The texture is light and fluffy. A very tasty treat. Plus, it was really quick to make.

Also, I really like your tiny stitch markers. I wish I had the patience to work with stuff that small.
