Gourmet Delights

I made myself some lunch the other day, and as I looked down at my plate, I started to laugh.  I was thinking of some of my friends who post beautiful photos of delicious foods when they go out to eat.  I start drooling just looking at those gourmet delights.

And then there's mine.  Notice the artfully arranged "crudité" and the fashionable paper plate.  Just gives me a little laugh every time I think about it.

Obviously, it's better if I stick to posting fiber art!

Update on Holder's Clay

I decided to put the first chapter of my novel up on this blog, so you can read it for free by clicking here.  Or just click the tab at the top of the blog that says "Holder's Clay, First Chapter Free!"

I hope you find it entertaining.

Starflower Scarf

I've been playing with my Starflower crochet pattern (which you can buy if you click here.)  The pattern is for the block only;  you can make a blanket, a stole, a scarf, or whatever you like with the blocks.

I was going to make a throw, but didn't have enough of all the colors, and I realized one block with sport weight yarn was 6" wide, perfect for a scarf.

I crocheted ten blocks together, did a nice little reverse single crochet (a.k.a. crab stitch) border, and this is the result.  A nice light scarf for fall, which can't get here soon enough, imo!  Have I mentioned how hot it is here?  This is not normal!  I'm afraid it's the new normal, though.

Soon we won't need scarves at all, or shawls, or blankets, and then what to do with our yarn stashes???  Just kidding, I'll keep knitting and crocheting regardless.

P.S. I just want to mention that Blogger has quit forwarding comments to my email, so if you have commented anywhere on my blog, and I haven't responded to you, it's because I haven't seen your comment yet.  But I will find it!  Eventually.  I hope.
