Feeling Better

I am finally starting to feel healthy again. Just the last remaining bits of congestion, but other then that, I am feeling good. I am also finally getting out of my funk.

Now that I am feeling better, these past two days have been very productive. I got a good bit of cleaning done. I went through some piles of paper that needed to be dealt with; and I even organized the foot tall stack of paper that needs to be scanned into categories (phone, car, medical and so on) so I can start scanning them in an organized fashion!

I came up with a plan and put it in motion to get my recipes in order. Every week I make a menu, and enter the recipes in a great recipe organizer on the internet, where I can also put my menu on a calendar. I did do that for this week, and even printed out the recipes onto index cards and put tabs in my index card box to keep them organized. I figure if I do this every week, eventually all my recipes will be in order. On the website, I can rate the recipes, and put tags on them, so that will help with picking out menus in the future. I still want the printed out index cards, so I don’t have to take the laptop into my tiny kitchen. I’m very excited about this, because I have so many magazines laying about with recipes I want to try, and a many, many bookmarked web pages with recipes, also. Maybe I’m just silly that way, but (more…)

The Craft Hope red scarves should have found their way to the Orphan Foundation of America by now. It was a lot of fun making them.

This one was made by starting with a flat circle in red. I then squared it out with the white, and finished with red again. It was a bunch of squares put together with the join-as-you-go method. The boarder is just two rows of single crochet. Here is a close up.

Quilt Squares for Janice

So remember how I told you about our friend Janice? She is very sick with cancer and when asked what her friends could do for her, she said she wanted a quilt. I made three squares for the quilt, and Doug made one, also. They have been sent to Rose who will put them together with all the other squares and turn them into a quilt.

I started with a log cabin. I’ve never made one before, but always wanted to. Now after making one square, I would love to do a whole quilt.

After the traditional log cabin, I thought “why not do the same thing with another shape?” So here you have a triangle. Who knows, maybe that log cabin quilt I want to make one day will be hexagons, ’cause we know my fondness for hexagons! (more…)
