Craft Project - Crochet

The weather is a recurring theme here.  Today the high is supposed to be 12° and tonight should set a record low.
Snow still covers the ground so hay feeding is a steady job for DH, maybe every two days or so.

I got out of the house for the first time in three days yesterday to do some errands.

I have been crocheting for the first time in several years..........and making lots of mistakes.  When the grands were down over the Holidays, they both wanted ear flap caps and went online and found the pattern they liked.  It was listed as simple but I could never figure the pattern so ended up with some ad lib ones.  I did this after ripping out the lavender one 4 times!  I sure hope  they fit.  The are extremely easy (except for the design) and could easily be made in one day.


Gardening:  I got my last order of seeds yesterday from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.  Their service has been the best, no delays, and no back orders.  I will certainly use them again if I need to.  Once reason for going all open pollinated is to save my own seeds so that should I don't have to order repeatedly.  I may try different corns or squash now and then......can't resist when everyone starts talking about their favorites.

My afternoon project is going to be getting all my seeds on a spreadsheet like Ilene does (her Blog is A Visit with Grandma).  I thought that sounded like a super idea.  I can't count the times I have spread all of them out on the kitchen table (two or three boxes full) to find something or see if I had something.

It will be a good day for it.

  1. Wow Glenda You DID it. I am proud of you. I think they turned out great and your gkids will love them.

    It sounds like your day spent with seeds will be a good one. My seeds are in a basket, a plastic container and who knows where else.

    Keep warm. I feel for your DH having to go out into the frigid weather with all that snow too.
