Wednesday and wandering about

Why I did not think of this middle of the week display of links sooner, is beyond me.

There is so many tasks I must get done with work and a house to keep. But beyond that, there are so many things I want to do. These are the ones I have begun to think about more and more, the want list. Everyone needs to have a little fun! So lets get started.



If you want to learn how to knit (or return to knitting), this is a great feature at Suburban Jubilee. Many years ago I taught myself to knit, I made a sweater vest for my son and a poncho for my daughter. I am looking forward to knitting once again.

Also at Suburban Jubilee, re-purposed curtain. A great idea. This idea goes hand in hand with picking up a curtains at your favorite thrift store and re-purposing the cloth.

Mending and patching are coming back, as are many of the lost skills from years ago. This is a great tutorial on patching, from Firesign Farm.

For general fun and great ideas, check out That Artist Woman. She is an elementary school educator, with a great flair for art. A great resource, and lots of photos to help along the way. All posts are age appropriate.

Homemade spill resistant drinking cups. A great idea for any age. Personally I don't (usually) spill, but an open top drinking glass will let your drink become contaminated, especially if you are outside in the beautiful sunshine.

Because everyone loves a whoopie pie. That is what these are, Carrot cake whoopie pies!

Healthy snacks that are also delicious, bring them on. These are also easy as well as thrifty.

Puffy pizza casserole, I hear Saturday afternoon calling for this one. Knife and fork pizza, sometimes I don't want to eat with my hands.
