One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Finished Project ~ Crocheted blanket
I have a very happy 8 year-old daughter today. I finished her crocheted blanket, and she is so excited to curl up in it. I didn't get the chance to make final measurements (she ran off with it too fast - ha ha!), but it fits the top of a king mattress. I simply chose a pattern from an old library book, and chose colors at the store. Now I am so used to crocheting every night, I'm not sure what I will do with myself. I will be starting the next blanket for my 16 year-old daughter. She is deciding on colors for me to work with.
