Sort Old Projects

Out of site, out of mind. Or so it is with my sewing projects. So today I took a laundry bag full of knitting and crochet projects out to the patio to sort them. That was hours ago and I'm still not done, because I keep getting distracted. I did get some knitting done on the newest project, which is using geometric shapes from an afghan pattern to design something new like a hat or a vest or a scarf. That's going pretty well.

But I'm getting worn out and my head is starting to hurt and I don't want to leave those things out in the dark.
Leave a comment if you stop by.

A Saving Habit

Save $50 a month. I decided to start on July 1, 2010. Saved money will hopefully help me feel safer and have peace of mind. The trick is to put it in savings and leave it there.

A Bottle Tree

Decorating outdoors with colored bottles has always appealed to me. Then tonight they had a blurb on a show about bottle trees. Imagine a dead tree with all it's branches cut short, and then a colorful bottle is inverted over each branch. Viola, bottle tree! And there is a metaphysical meaning to them. It was said that the bottles attracted evil spirits over night, and then in the light of day the spirits would be destroyed.

I don't have much of a yard but I'd sure like to make space for a bottle tree. You can use old artifical Christmas trees as a base too. Or even a fence post with pegs in it would work.

The bottle trees with blue glass are particularly striking to me. If I ever get one built I'll let you know.
