One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

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.

Finishing Up

I have been working like a mad woman (just an exaggerated figure of speech representing my speed of work- ha ha!) finishing up half started projects and other unfinished projects.

Crocheted dishcloth

Oversized pot holder and two small pot holders

Although I am still knitting blocks for my blanket, I finished up this kitchen set for a nephew on hubby's side of the family.  I like the colors, so I hope to make a set for my "store" also.

My crafting journal is slowly filling up with new ideas too.

With gardening season starting early, I am working even harder at getting Christmas presents finished early.

Great idea. I have been the opposite and getting may garden prepared for gardening season before the blackflies arrive, which I think will be early this year. Still knitting after dark but my knitting days are getting shorter and shorter.

Love the kitchen set-- what a nice gift.
Did I KNOW that you had a crafting journal of ideas? This is new to me.
I've read your post here with excerpts from your journals...but I was thinking this was just a theme for posting.

I think this is a great idea...I need to write things down.
