Let our Q and A begin :
*I’m so thankful Meredith and Dee are okay after the hurricane. 9/11 is such a sacred day. Do you have your American Flag flying today?
*I give you my weekend project: A needle felted sheep. I have four punctures in my fingers as a result . Have you needle felted? Did your fingers get in the way?
*I used to kid myself that caramel apples were a healthy treat. What is your unhealthy healthy treat?
*I have a new rule for the rest of 2017. We have 111 days left of this year. Are you reaching for a certain goal before 2018?
*Name your favorite intersection of two streets. Give us the state too.
*Do you own any mini skeins of yarn?
*What color is the yarn you will work with today or tomorrow?
*What is the fiber content of that yarn?
*Did you have a old fashioned lunch box with a thermos, when you were growing up. What was the theme of the lunchbox?
*Were you ever given a detention?
Yes, we always have an American Flag hanging outside our home. We saved the flag Fireman flew on 9/11.
I think the fact that I Only stuck myself 4 times making my first needle felt project is nearly miraculous. Each stuck bled. Don’t worry I’ve had my tetanus shot. 🙂
Well, obviously I had to come to terms with the fact that the caramel on the apple is ridiculously high in points. I love a taffy apple. Zach and I share a fondness for them. Let’s face it, they are best in fall, freshly made and unpackaged. If you are going to wipe your points out for a week in one sitting, this may be the way to do it.
My new rule for the remainder of this year, 2017, is that I’m done cooking for company. I’m thrilled friends have visited. I love having friends up to the house. But we have great pizza places here and I’m just over the whole menu thing. I think I’ll just focus on baking.
My favorite intersection is Highway 51 and K in Hazelhurst Wisconsin. My father had a cabin for years just past that intersection. I also love Fullerton and Clark in Chicago. It is where Lincoln Park Zoo is and where the first Lettuce Entertain You diner was built.
I own 8 mini skeins of cotton yarn. I don’t like joining ends so a project in mini skeins is something I’d avoid. I’m not tricked by the cuteness of the mini skein grass movement. I swooned over them for a full minute and then thought, ugh what a lot of work.
The color of my yarn today is Black. I’m knitting a FALL KAL Halloween bag. It is knitpicks Stroll Merino/nylon blend. Um . Knitting with black yarn….yeah…good thing tis a small bag !
I did have a metal lunch box. More than one I’m sure. I recall on that looked like a school bus. I think it has Peanuts characters smiling all the way to school. I usually cried all the way to school. I was such a baby. Truly , I was 15 days before the cutoff and while I could keep up fine with the work and the grades, emotionally I should have stayed home another year. Seriously my name tag, that I had to wear, was unreadable due to the tear stains on it. No one made me a new one, I just wore it tear stained for weeks.
I was given detention once and was FURIOUS about it. The whole class was forced to stay after due to only some individuals misbehaving. Group punishment. I was really mad. I was not the kind of kid who wanted ONE MORE MINUTE in school for any reason. hahaha.
Can’t wait to hear your stories.
