Eh, not really. Just another quiet day!
Work continues in the old office/craft room. I have yet to tackle my years’ (plural) worth of magazines. I have folded and organized the fabric, and removed much of the clutter. It’s actually looking might nice!
We had a quiet weekend. We did a little decorating for Halloween. Did a little reading and picked up my needles for a bit of knitting during football. Made some kick-ass chili. (Halloween? Knitting? Football? Chili? I think it might be Fall!)
I started the Winter Leaves Lace Scarf pattern by Laura Wick. A few weeks back I spied some Vanna’s Choice yarn in dusty purple on clearance. I have a weakness for clearance deals (especially ones dealing with yarn, embroidery thread or ribbon) so I picked up two skeins of it. For once, I decided to use my impulse buy right away, hence the scarf knitting. Hopefully, I have enough for mittens and a hat, too, but if not, oh well! Who needs matching ensembles? 😀 Here’s my progress:
Also, I did a quick little craft this morning. I’m not sure if even qualifies as a craft. I had a need, so I decided to fill it. My need was a decent receptacle to deposit my paper trash waiting to be recycled. What better way to collect recyclables than with an empty box that was heading to the recycling center? I took this box, removed it’s flaps (is that what they’re called?) and covered it in old wrapping paper, and, voila! A recycling bin for my office. Eh, okay–it’s not that spectacular. What it is, though, is money (and resources) saved.
Oh, and one last thing! My book club met last Thursday, and I wanted to bring something special to share, so I made Frito Caramel Cupcakes. I found the recipe here, and this is how they turned out! Impressive, no?
