  1. Kitchen Basics
    My wife is notorious for leaving exactly one bit on the plate, regardless of the amount served. If I'm dishing up her plate, I'll ask her when there is enough, and then have her watch me put one bite's worth back. Anyway, I have a container in the freezer, in which I'll put a bite or two's...

    No fabric goes to the trash from my sewing room! I make 3 sorts for fabric scraps: 3 inch square, 1 1/2 inch strips, and tiny slivers. The tiny slivers and other misshaped are used to fill up a pillow case, then I make a pillow. And my favorite is the string quilts from the strips. What do...
  4. Homesteading and gardening
    We're surrounded by God's wonderful creatures, so tossing the kitchen scraps on the pile in the winter is just feeding the critters.

    My neighbor is constantly giving me leftover material from quilts and things she makes so here are a few of the things I've made recently with them. My favorite part is how cheap it was to make these things :D I made Gracie a tree for her wall in her room (I got the ornaments in a pack at...

    http://www.black-purl-magazine.com/SPR07-PATshapesscarf.htm I'm thinking this will be a good project to take on vacation (and maybe convince Deana to knit too). I can use up lots of scraps of yarn, and get some stuff done for Christmas.

    I had these denim scraps left over from hemming pants and I just thought they would make a neat skirt. So I trimmed the scraps to rectangles and sewed them together and then I decided that the seams would be irritating so I lined the skirt with ORANGE satin leftover from a costume and I put in...

None of them are big enough to do much with so I have a bunch of pen pals and decided to use the scraps to make my envelopes for my letters. I tried it and they actually turned out pretty nice. I dont follow any...
