W.I.P. Wednesday: Keeping Crafty

Unfortunately, I don’t ¬†have a completed project to share this week. I am still knitting the wormy/snake I posted about last month. I have made several new cards, sewn up some reusable bulk food bags, and spent quite a bit of time thinking about what to do with this fabric:

I absolutely love owls and this fabric is covered with colorful, sassy owls! My sister gave this to me for a birthday gift, and I can’t figure out what to make. Suggestions? I think there is a yard of fabric, but I have not measured to be sure.

And, since I can’t share my creations, here is a photo of a turtle my nephew made. I received this for my birthday as well, and I absolutely love it!

Too cute, right?!!!!

I also recently purchased a new book from Herbivore called Make Your Place. This book is full of recipes and tips for creating your own eco-friendly health and first aid items, cleaning and body care products, and even some useful gardening tips. There is so much great information packed into this little book! It will lead you toward living a much more sustainable, simple life without relying on toxic commercialized consumer products. Hooray for that!

You should probably get yourself a copy.
