    Welcome aboard, Jan! Sounds like agreat combination, washcloths and soap. When I started knitting, we made washcloths – so pretty, and so durable. ANd more power to you with your rugs making.

    Welcome, too, to all the other new members. Sorry I haven’t been jiggling this list to life much, but I’ve had problems with my knees + a heavy canning…[Read more]

    In reply to - Jan posted an update in the group Lint Buddies — Anything Fiber Hi all, I’m new to group. My favorite fiber craft is rug hooking – traditional hooking, not latch. This time of year though I am enjoying c […] · View
  • Bwahahaha! Crafty folks seem to think they can bend time and squeeze in more activity and rojects than should be physically possible. And ya know what? We generally do make it happen. I saw an art car once, and in a corner, the owner wrote: “I made this in the time you watch TV”. Frankly, that’s where I rob my time; I don’t watch TV at all & just…[Read more]

  • dee58 – what kind of artwork do you do? Fiber really is an underutilized medium. I’m a potter and I work fiber into my sculpting now & then.

    Been working like crazy knitting hats with my odds & ends of stash; then I send them to the local cancer treatment center for the folks having Chemo. Even in the spring time and early summer, the effects of…[Read more]

  • We’ve had lots of new people join. Why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself, or your projects or your stash.

    Nice hats, lattelady. All that and reading, too. My idea of happiness.

    NorthCountryGirl, check […]

    I don’t mind singing it, if I know the tune!

    Yay! Details, please!

  • Welcome, Lattelady! You sound like quite the fiber artist, an I’m looking forward to hearing about your projects. In fact, I’m looking forward to hearing about everyone’s projects. Let’s get some talk going!

    Welcome, BuckeyeGirl! I spin a lot just using a drop spindle.If you’ve got a jones for fiber, you will learn a lot about its character and temperment by spinning by hand. And the fiber is so soft. But if you want lots of yarn, you’ll eventually have to go to a wheel. The weight of your spindle will determine, to some degree, the weight and…[Read more]

    Leah’s Mom, thanks for the caerphilly link! Now that beer brewing season is on hiatus, and pickling season hasn’t started, it’s cheese season. I love the way the milk tastes different from season to season, and it will be interesting to taste that in the cheeses as well. I wish I’d made more in the […]

  • Merryment started the forum topic Saying good-bye in the group Chicken Chatter: 9 years, 4 months ago

    We live in town, and are allowed 6 hens & 15 pullets. I just sold 2 hens and eight of our pullets yessterday to a friend of mine. They’re going out to a farm and will live out their days there, so I’m happy for them. We’ll have some pullets that ‘go to Tahlequah’ 9where […]

    Welcome, cowgirl! Warning: cheesemaking can be addictive. And mighty tasty. My basic recommendations are as follows: Start simple, make the easy cheese a few times before moving on to more difficult ones. You’re learning the basics, so get a good foundation in them before moving on. It’s ok to make mistakes. Learn what happened & […]

  • Merryment posted on the forum topic Introduce Yourself! in the group Cheesemaking: 9 years, 4 months ago

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I really like this community! Sorry raw milk is illegal in your state. The insane politics of it all makes my head spin. We can go to the farm and buy, but that’s often quite a drive. I do go & help milk at a friend’s farm in exchange for […]

  • Merryment started the forum topic Tommes? in the group Cheesemaking: 9 years, 4 months ago

    Anyone out there make any tommes? I am fascinated by them, but haven’t stuck my toe in the water with them yet, though I think the moment approaches. Any tips or advice, or should I just dive in? Thanks!

  • Merryment posted on the forum topic Introduce Yourself! in the group Cheesemaking: 9 years, 4 months ago

    Hi – I’m Merry from Tulsa, OK. I just started making cheese less than a year ago & am having pretty good luck so far. But it’s not my first time around the dance floor with fermented foods, so that probably helps. I’m lucky enough to get Guernsey milk from a farm 30 minutes away […]

  • Merryment posted on the forum topic pecking order? in the group Chicken Chatter: 9 years, 4 months ago

    I hang a cage for suet cakes in the run, stuff it full of herbs and other tender green things. It gives the girls something else to pick at. When it gets hot, I freeze some goodies in an old butter tub with a bit of water and put it out for them to work […]
