Odds and Ends

This morning was rainy,



I saw this little guy on the window...

And I spent most of the morning organizing/de-tangling my yarn stash. It feels great to get that done. Now I have at least some idea of what I...well...have. I certainly don't NEED to buy any yarn for a while. (Needless to say, that doesn't mean I won't buy any yarn for a while.)

In addition to the usable balls and skeins (or the ones with enough on them that I can at least make a pair of small wristwarmers or something), I found these little odds and ends.

I'm not quite sure what to do with them yet. I made a shawl from bits like these once. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Annnnddd... I also listened to CraftyPod, a podcast I recently discovered. It isn't new, but it's new to me, and I found it to be quite entertaining and very worth while! If you're into crafts (and, since you're reading this, you probably are) you should definitely check it out. And if you're into crafts AND you are interested in crafting for business, you MUST check it out!!

The episode I listened to today was about how to be a better blogger. So now want to be a better blogger. And I better follow through after announcing that in public.... ;)


What do YOU, the reader, want to see more of??? I'm thinking about some tutorials in edition to the regular things on here. But is there anything else?

Let me know!


  1. love your pic! noticed the great apple pic too, do you want to join the Barn chick meeting on apples and barns?


  2. I haven't listened to CraftyPod much but I've heard of it. I would like to become a better blogger as well. ;)
    And... Tutorials are always awesome! I have been wanting to post some for a while... I just get wrapped up in the project and forget to take pictures along the way. lol

  3. karen, that sounds cool! what/where is the barn chick meeting?

    tayla, i so know what you mean about getting wrapped up in the project (or forgetting your camera which is often the case with me)!! practice makes perfect, i suppose. :)

  4. Hi Leanne,so glad you came by. Great photo of your little friend, and I so know what you mean about getting organized. It does help my productivity! Cool and rainy sounds wonderful, have a great weekend!
