Just a quick post as I’ve got to spend some time with my discarded love…my sewing machine… lol.
I found a couple interesting articles recently. One is a blogpost regarding food coloring (did you know it was a petroleum product?! Eww). I’m definitely going to be putting my hands on some alternative food coloring for when I make birthday cakes & such. Thankfully we don’t eat a lot of packaged foods (well, relatively speaking), and when we do they’re (as often as I can afford it) organic.
The other is a news article on kids being, basically, micromanaged when they’re young. I can’t say I agree 100% with the author, but I was definitely nodding my head in the affirmative through most of the read. I am aware that a lot of this is variable depending on what sort of neighborhood & town you live in. What do ya’ll think?
The best link of all, though, is one of all (I think!) of my FO pics!! My old blog was hosted on dh’s computer — well his “file server” computer, anyhow. Several months ago, it died. He says there is some hope of salvaging more off it, but it will take much work — not the happy kind, either — the swearing & kicking kind. Anyhow, he somehow found where all (actually I have realized it isn’t all, but it is MANY) of my blog pics were stored, so I’ve uploaded the FO pics to flickr. I’ll get them posted on ravelry soon, but for now I thought I’d link ya’ll over. 🙂 Can you tell I’m stoked?? lol
Wish me much sewing mojo!! I have 2 project bags to sew, plus a whole slew of other projects. I also need to figure out some pirate themed goodies for ds1’s upcoming 5th birthday party! Suggestions welcome! 🙂
