In Search of . . .
Sigh. Another pattern that requires a color I do not have.
And then there was the triple sigh for finding another project when crafting journal if full already.
Today is the last day of school for the kids, and then Christmas break starts.
This cold winter air is really drying me out. I feel like I could crack. I'm on the hunt for a homemade body butter recipe now. Anyone have one?
If I make any candy this Christmas, it might be Sorghum Candy or Cider Vinegar Candy. Both are favorites here. Now that I have organic/non-gmo corn syrup, I might make some hard tack candy. I haven't made that one for over 20-some years.
If you are wondering how my solo "crochet-a-than" went, you'll have to patiently (in our large family there are many interruptions) wait. I'm still not certain whether I will meet the deadline or not. I am pretty sure that the dish scrubbies (sorry Brother) won't even get started due to the cramming of gift making going on. But....I have all of January to March to get them done for next Christmas. The weather may prevent one gathering this season too. I continue to watch the forecast for this weekend and Christmas week.
