As many of you know if you have been reading Little House for any length of time-I like to make things, useful things, bread, soups, hand and body creams, deodorant, butter, yes just about anything and everything so I do not have to go to the BIG stores and buy items. I garden, crochet, spin, quilt and knit too. Now, do not assume I make all our needed things and am anti-purchasing of said goods…no, no, no! I like knowing how to do all these useful things. I feel it connects me with previous generations and in a weird way I am stronger and more independent. And to think I hated the thought of taking any Home Economics courses in high school or college. I refused to take any, knowing I was going to be a career woman. I also said I would never be a secretary or a nurse. I have been a nurse for the last 37 years…ahem! The point being, sometimes we end up loving what was incomprehensible at a younger age. Life is full of strange twist.
This past week I continue working on the baby gown and brown sweater. Knitting more on baby gown (Kumfy) than sweater. Baby items are fun and quick, so I seem to gravitate to those more and more recently.
Reading sewing and dying books, so much information.
