CRAFTS AND SUCH

 

CROCHET

I have always loved owls.  When I found this free pattern for Otis the Owl from The Loopy Lamb, I just had to share it with all of you.  The owl pattern uses a fur yarn.  The Loopy Lamb has a tutorial on working with fur yarn and one on making the owl.  You can purchase the yarn on KnitPicks.

 DIY

Did you ever try paper mache?  Well, these functional bowls created by Paper & Stitch use fabric scraps and not paper.  You need:

  • balloons 
  • a paintbrush
  • fabric scraps
  • scissors

 KNITTING

Do you have leftover yarn from winter or pandemic projects?

In the Loop Knitting has collected over 35 patterns using scrap yarn, and most of the designs use less than 25 yards of yarn.  Plus, they are all FREE! Check out the Facial Scrubbies.

 FOOD

Since I have been on the Keto Zone diet, subscribers have asked what vegetables are Keto-friendly.  I found this post on 10 Keto-Friendly Vegetables by Health.com.  I mostly eat romaine and iceberg lettuce, avocados, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, green beans, mushrooms, peppers, spinach, and tomatoes.  I haven’t acquired a taste for arugula or kale.  Here is a nice image of the best Keto-friendly vegetables.  You can click on the images for a full explanation of these vegetables. [Remember:  I am not a medical practitioner, and I am only sharing what I am using.  The Keto Zone Diet that I am on is being closely monitored by a medical professional.]
