A few of you have asked for a tutorial on making felted stones, and I have one in the works. I need an extra pair of hands to run the camera for me so I'll get to that this weekend when the family is home.
Right now the snow is falling softly and for a moment, it fell against a backdrop of blue sky. I like those odd juxtapositons.
I've ordered some new seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and to say I'm eager for spring planting is a massive understatement. I'm trying to make my landscaping as useful as possible, rather than being solely ornamental, and I'm stoked about these new arrivals and the mushroom spawn that's on the way.
The girl had a fever last week that turned out to be strep. So far no one else has gotten it and I'm crossing every crossable body part that it stays that way.
I really enjoyed the 'biting your tail' post by Jenna at Cold Antler Farm and it's made me think a lot about how and when to ask for things. And my inability to ask, even when I should. And other people's proclivity for it, even when they shouldn't.
Cabin fever has reared its ugly head here. Naughtiness is at an all-time high, tempers are short, and whining is rampant. Thank goodness we're having a few warmer days, it will give us a chance to get out in the woods and
primal scream breathe.
I made egg noodles from scratch last night but not enough to feed everyone so I had to mix them with some store-bought noodles. A blind taste test revealed that mine had a "richer" taste. Take that Barilla. (though the chickens should get the credit as I'm positive it's their bright orange eggs that made the difference) Also, making egg noodles is sooo easy.
I need to finish photographing the cashmere pieces I made last week. Only one of the two hats I made has survived, one being lost at school, (or the playground, or the bus) on the first day it was worn. Of course.
I've been doing more stitching and hope to have a shop update next week. I'll announce the date and time and give a sneak peek before I put the new work in my shop.
I need a refill on my coffee and wish we could have a group coffee date to chit chat. Coffee is tastier with good conversation, don't you think?
Have a good day, everyone.
