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.

From the Handiwork Journal. . .

( Previously finished)









...finished more crocheted scarves.



...working the last color row on a lap crocheted Christmas afghan.


...working on another order for dishcloths (knitted) and a new pattern for pot holders.


...planning to finish off one more scarf today. 

We attempted to split wood yesterday, but the chainsaw was not going to stay running for us.  Hubby promised to look at it.  Today, I must call the chimney sweep.  I am behind on that too.

Sorry I am slacking in posts, but times here have been extremely stressful.  Hubby and I nurse headaches from stress daily.  He is working very long days, and dealing with stress at work on top of this.  Raising kids today is sometimes (most times) a very difficult task.  With cell phones, texting, internet, facebook, twitter, e-mail, and so forth....it's a whole different world than when I grew up....sigh...
