Just finished up this gorgeous yarn from fiber given to me by my friend Edith. It's a blend of bison, yak and wool and maybe some alpaca. It was so much fun to spin. the roving was such a lovely blend of colors and I really like how it came together. It's interesting how cream, caramel and black worked together to make this lovely color. I'll probably weave it into a scarf using it as warp because it deserves to be showcased. AND I have 4 more ounces to spin! #yarn #handmade
Taking a few days off from working. Kidlet has come down with a cold. So I’m making more elderberry syrup. We go thru this all winter long.
I use 2 cups dried elderberry, 8 cups water and add vanilla, lemon, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom. This is what I have on hand. You can use whatever you want.
I do mine in the instant pot for 1/2 hour and then let rest til warm, strain well and add raw honey to taste.
Store in fridge.
Good stuff. #elderberrysyrup #naturalm
Today is Christmas Eve and I am writing you and drinking a cup of coffee before I begin making some food to take to my sister's house. We will spend time together and eat yummy foods and exchange gifts.
Tomorrow is reserved at my house with my children and their significant others. We will exchange gifts and nosh and drink mimosas.
Then, I will take a nap and rest a few days as I prepare my ideas and thoughts for 2019.
One of the things I am certain
