CRAFTS AND SUCH


RECYCLED CRAFTS

S’mores Valentines

Kimberly at A Night Owl.com has created a S’mores Valentine’s mason jar that I think you will like. All you need are Valentine M&Ms, marshmallows, Goldfish graham crackers and a mason jar with a handle. She has a free printable for the finishing touches.

CROCHET

Crochet Temperature Afghan

In every place I went this week, the topic of conversation consistently revolved around a temperature blanket made using crochet. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a temperature blanket, I stumbled upon a comprehensive resource called the “Complete Guide” by Lucky Kate Crochet.”

For a year, you crochet a row a day in the color relating to a temperature chart.

KNITTING

Gray Days Gansey by Hope Vickman

The designer describes this sweater as:

Gansey-style sweaters similar to this one have been worn by fisherfolk for hundreds of years. Densely knit and uniquely patterned, this sweater calls to mind images of the fishing line unspooling and the waves lapping on a gray and dreary day.This unisex sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armholes and worked in the round from the shoulder down. Stitch patterns are written and charted.

FOOD/RECIPES

Throughout the week, our meals consisted of grabbing food while heading home, consuming easily prepared dishes, or enjoying leftovers. On a particular evening, I experimented with a fresh recipe recommended by Ricki, a fellow food blogger from SeveralPeoplesMama.com.

This recipe does take an hour to bake, but it is quick to throw together. Actually, by the time the oven was at the correct temperature, I had the pan ready for the oven. Mike gave this recipe a thumbs up, too.

I wrote a product review on the Headlamp Flashlight. I didn’t know how useful this item would be until I needed to use it. Every crafter’s home should have one.

Have a great week!

UNTIL NEXT WEEK–
