In honor of the American Thanksgiving holiday, I am thankful today for the Earth we live on. (cheesy, yes, shut up!)

On the run!

The Guilt-Free Shopping Bag! Take it along and use a little less in the plastic bag and paper bag department.


Yes, these can both be recycled, but the reality is, recycling these cause a lot of toxic chemicals, so I am trying to keep that down.

I have a bag and you don't!

Now, I will still need plastic bags for kitty litter, so this won’t replace all bags, but it will replace a lot. I don’t get bags in most places anyway, just the grocery store. So this will replace one or two of those each visit.

I have a headache!

Special bonus: It can double as an ice pack holder for those days when you have a wee bit of a hangover!

Everlasting Bagstopper Upclose

Pattern: Everlasting Bagstopper from
Yarn: Organic Cotton and Recycled Soda Bottles from Little Barn (purchased at SAFF)
Notions: Chocolate brown ribbon, stringy thing, claspy thing
Cost: Yarn: $1.79, ribbon: free cause Cristi owned it, stringy thing and claspy thing: $1.00 purchased at the Dollar Store in the form of a laundry bag that I ripped it off of. Total: $2.79 (HELL YA!!!)
Modifications: None really. I placed the stringy thing a little lower than a handspan.
Notes: I will make this again. Mostly because it only took one skein and I have 2. someone is getting the gift of a reusable market bag from me! WEEEEE!
Time: Ummm…This was a FAST knit, but I didn’t really keep track as I worked on it in between things. I think it was probably less than 4 hours. Really it was 2 nights I think.
Models: May and Cristi last night at knitting group. Thanks, ladies!!!

For Zonda

A special picture for Zonda…that is a bird ornament if you are wondering.
I have gotten a little bit of crap for my special Thanksgiving tradition of Wheat Thins and Diet Coke for dinner. I will have you know that will be lunch today. I am cooking dinner for me. Wanna know what is on the menu? Well…peppercorn crusted pork tenderloin, fresh asparagus with lemon, four cheese risotto, baby greens salad with blue cheese crumbles and pomegranite and blueberry salad dressing and fresh baked wheat dinner rolls. mmmmmm….yummy. And all for me. So yes, I will have lots of left overs for next week.
