I originally started collecting sea shells because I saw a picture in a magazine ( a loooong time ago) of a wall built out of sea shells. This guy made a wall by his outdoor shower out of sea shells and concrete. I fell in love. I have always meant to build my own sea shell wall someday, somewhere and have yet to get around to it. But maybe next summer will be the year.
Anyway, I found my bin with my vintage aprons and aprons I made in Oregon. I love them all but never use them and thought I should put them in my Etsy Shop. So I will be doing that in the next week.
I've really have neglected sewing lately, because I have been crocheting! I saw this beautiful picture on Pinterest......
And now I am completely obsessed! This is called a sunburst granny square. The squares behind the sunburst are regular granny squares. This just SCREAMS happiness! So after watching two video's and reading three different written directions and ripping out no less than 15 tries of granny squares, and wanting to throw my computer across the room, I FINALLY got it! And I have made about 30 regular granny squares and 1 sunburst granny square so far. So yes, my poor lollibag's have taken a back burner...... but not for long.
As I am typing, my kitchen is full of the most wonderful ArOmA, bone broth. I know it sounds disgusting. But I just read about it here, so I am giving it a go. After Thanksgiving dinner I threw my turkey carcass in the freezer with all the drippings and it is simmering away in my crockpot and it smells divine. It actually smells healthy, if that is possible! And I love, love, love soup. Love making it, love eating it. So I will be making soup, soup, soup and more soup out of my bone broth!
On to blog design. I am lost, I have no clue how to change up my blog. I have no idea how to do a blog button... these things? Well it's like I'm reading Japanese. Will someone please point me in the direction or tell me how to do all this? Or tell me who to hire or SOMETHING?
