Life is like that. Which is exactly why this little post is important for me to do each week.
Here are a few things I did like this week and a small giveaway at the end, because I Like y'all.
1.Brianna's salad dressings. I am allergic to soy and corn and these have good ingredients for me. Even if you aren't allergic to those items, and they are hard to avoid in American foods, these taste great! We use them as dipping sauces too.
This show is fabulous. We get the CD's from the library but I expect one can find them in other places.
The characters are developed and very interesting, the plots keep me guessing to the end, I get to see an area of the world I know less about, it's very well acted and great scripts, the only negative is there are only 3 seasons so far. I think it's still in production. We watched all the midsomer mysteries, like Miss Fischer's Mysteries, Really loved Broadchurch, so that's our review. Four paws up!
3. Books. Nothing new about my love of books, but I have more than I have shelves. I did a quick review of my cubbies, and said I was going to pull out at least one from each cubbie that I no longer needed.
Well that is harder than one might think. I find something in almost all books to like. Taste's change though, and needs change, time marches on and I find I really like working with scraps, making landscapes, or in general making my own patterns.
I was able to take out 12 books and maybe 20 patterns to release into the wild.
4. Fekkai Shampoo full volume. It smells nice and lemony and it plumps up my fine straight baby-bird hair.
It's found in lots of stores
5. Textured Yarn I was gifted with a bag of textured yarn.
In honor of being able to live in a Democratic country and vote, (and women, we fought for respect, and the right to be seen as real people and "to be allowed" to vote, not that long ago)
I'm giving away this partially knitted scarf, and two balls of bright Red fringy soft yarn to anyone who wants it. If there are more than one out there who wants it, I'll draw a name in a couple days. I want to encourage you to "use it!" which is my motto this year.
While I'm at it, how about these little triangles in red and green for Christmas? Seam lines arked on the back in pencil. I hand pieced a few into some circles and I'm done.( I'm keeping my circles) (I'm going to applique them onto a pieced table runner)
Your turn... "use it!" for me. Then you'll help me not feel wasteful, and you'll carry on for some quilter out there who couldn't finish it.
If you want either of these, leave a comment answering this question:
How many UFO's will you leave behind?
(and tell me which you want)
Approximately, a meeeeelion UFO's or at least a hundred. I finish a lot, but I also start a lot that go South.
I didn't start these triangles but you can finish them. Imagine with me now... (swirling music) what in the WORLD could you do with triangles? They can be appliqued, they can be pieced they could be made into little boxes to hold trinkets, pin cushions. The sky is the limit! I only ask you show me what you make with them!
As usual, I will link to anyone doing an "I like" post today... let me know, my email is up there
