Today we will take a short look at knitting. To me, this is one of the most difficult crafts to do. I am able to crochet without an issue, but knitting seems to escape me. I know there are many knitters out there and Carina (from the Carina Knits Blog) is certainly a master! Carina can knit herself into a storm - she made the whole family Merino Wool bed socks!
Don't you love it when there is a special day in our lives? National Strawberry Day snuck up on me and I was not truly prepared at first. Today I will go and buy some strawberries and make a few dishes - maybe even buy a strawberry milkshake - oh yum!
Did you know that strawberries were originally a gift from Chile in the 1700's?
Did you ever put up your hand to take a turn to write on the White Board (or BlackBoard) at school? Most of us shied away from being anywhere near the front of the room facing our classmates but in the back of our mind, we always wanted to be picked!
As February nears its end, I am thinking about St. Patrick's Day and what kind of party I am going to attend. Last year a friend of ours arranged for everyone to meet at the "Shamrock" pub located near downtown. The Shamrock is a very popular place at any time as it is near the beach and on St. Patrick's Day it is particularly busy. We had to be there at 9 am to get a seat - and of course, we had to order a green beer. I am afraid that 9 am is not a very good time for beer for me but I placed the order and let it sit.
Someone asked me if preparing a new recipe for dinner counted as a daily make. I wasn't exactly sure how to answer the question but I started to think about it and making food is a craft in itself. I was more concerned that adding food to the mix would dilute my original intention of having a "craft" a day but calling them makes.
