What are we talking about today?

I used to have theme days. I've stopped doing that for now. My husband died in February and I'm trying to find a new normal. You'll probably read some sad stuff here for a while, mixed in with my usual ranting about bicycles and buses and books. I like 'B' words.

Please note that I'm not doing the A to Z Challenge this year. I welcome your visits but am having a hard enough time seeing straight without adding an extra challenge to my life.

Crafts

I'll post my craft-related pics here. Unfortunately, my crafting is pretty sporadic (bordering on non-existent) these days.

My first attempt at a reusable,
cloth, made-from-scraps
 sandwich bag.
And the snack-sized version.



A peppermint wreath in progress...

Our hand-decorated socks from Journeyland last May.





And the finished article.


The cotton bole angel herd from the 2009 Christmas tea.

Baby blanket.

Another baby blanket

Angel ornament from a couple of Christmas teas ago.

A jar of (really good) hot chocolate mix. I used to give these as gifts, but stopped when I realised, as I visited the recipients at other times, that they tend to sit unopened on people's counters for years. Now I only make them upon request.


I think the size on these two would be called lap blanket? They're bigger than baby blankets, but not big enough for a bed. Made for a couple of kids at church.


Baby blanket.
Another baby blanket, made with the leftover material from the lap blanket above. Or it may have been the other way around.
