I have been toiling with the fact I do other things besides cook as does everyone and there are times I have much more interest in other things.
Since I started this blog I spent a good deal of time sewing. Not necessarily for me but I have made a whole collection of tote bags. Which I have mostly given as gifts.
I have made tons of rice bags. These are filled with rice and sometimes essential oils are added for a special fragrance. This year one of my daughters-in-law gave them as Christmas gifts to the doctor and nurses at the medical office she works at. I made something like 14 total and had requests for more. You can heat them in the microwave and they hold the heat very well with no electrical cord to mess with plus it can be wrapped around or scrunched up to anyplace that needs a bit of warmth.
Over the last year I did a big Christmas stocking project and since Christmas have finished an embroidery project of lace edged pillow cases and started another in cross stitch. I also made cute little potato bags for fluffy baked potatoes in the microwave oven.
I made dozens of zippered sleep sacks for my grandsons in their first two years and have mended and repaired lots of clothing for my granddaughters. I made a few rice bag toys and a silk purse.
Currently I am interested in felting and am in the beginning of making some little blind mice and perhaps the three pigs.
At any rate I am wondering if I should start an additional blog or incorporate all my "stuff" into this one?? Say maybe adding a sewing and a felting drawer to my pantry???
I really do enjoy taking all of the pictures for the blog. It is the most fun of all. Just because I had to learn to do these new things with my new camera and on the computer and then again on the new computer.
I also like to sketch and watercolor a bit.
So if you have an opinion and would like to share it I would like to hear it.
