    I had a busy weekend. While dh was fixing the brakes on the car I made 17 pints of chicken broth for noodle soup or chicken rice. I made 7 bags of home made noodles for the freezer. A lemon pie, did all the housework and laundry. Blueberry pancakes yesterday for breakfast and blueberry waffles...
  3. Sewing
    I was stuck at home this weekend with a virus that has been going around. Our oldest dd is autistic and has a thing lately where she gets really upset if I try to take a nap, which is what I usually do when I'm sick. Instead, I got out the sewing machine and worked on some things for dh and...

    I've taken a look at past posts from previous years and saw that a virtual crafting weekend retreat was held and was quite popular at the time. Would anyone be interested in one this month or in December? It's where we choose a weekend (Friday/Saturday/Sunday) to craft at home and post online...

    I am so glad for a lazy weekend! Our trip to KY for the dedication/ memorial for my brother and the other pilot left me a frazzled, raw nerved mess.
