I came home from work on Friday with the stomach flu (I know, yuck) so needless to say not a lot of sewing or cooking or gardening happened this week-end. I’ve actually being going a little crazy with all of the things that didn’t get done (including end-of-year progress reports for my students – yikes!) it is hard for me to be still and rest, even when I am sick.
My mind never rests though, so I thought I would share with you a few tidbits of upcoming posts as well as link you to some great posts I have read recently. Hopefully I will be back on my feet again soon (I’m at the point where I can look at food again – I just can’t eat it!)
A few projects in the works:
I bought all the ingredients to try again in the hopes of making a more solid version. I do have to say that despite the soupy consistency hubby enjoyed eating the whole thing!
I have decided to make some of these for my students as end of year gifts. They are crayons made out of old crayons melted in a star-shaped mold. When I was young my cousin gave me a multi-coloured crayon stick with my name on it and I loved it so much that I still have it! I thought I would make a few for each of them, write their names on them with a silver pen, and include a doodle book. It’s not quite as exciting as the monsters I made for them at Christmas but I think this art-loving group will enjoy them.
A few links:
I have seen this course talked about on several of the blogs I read and it sounds amazing! I am currently trying to talk myself out of taking it as even with the discounts offered by some sites, it is still a lot to spend, but every time I turn around another of my favourite blogs is talking about how wonderful it is going to be and I get hooked all over again….
This morning I read this great article from Fake Plastic Fish on how to store fruits and veggies without using plastic. I have seriously reduced the number of plastic bags we use in our house – cheese, bread and lettuce are still a problem for me, as well as freezing.
I am looking forward to Mending Week at Making More with Less. It’s not that mending is such a fun thing to do, it’s just that it needs to get done so I’m excited that someone has decided to turn a chore into a fun event! And there is a lot of mending waiting for me in my sewing room at the moment so this is perfect timing….
Anything else interesting happening in the blog world? Feel free to post it in the comments. Have a great week-end!
