I am finally taking the plunge, and revamping/upgrading my web site.
I've had it for years and years, and I've always done it myself....but it's become pretty lame.
I sell a lot of stuff on FB, but when people ask if I have "more" or "different colors", I really can't refer them to my web site, because it is so lame.
Part of my reasoning is that if my web site is decent, and I can drive customers from FB and Instagram, over to my new and improved web site, where all the towels and all the clothes are available, perhaps I won't feel so bad about letting shows GO.
Not that I won't do a show if I feel like it, but no more of this 5-8 shows a summer. I am just too tired of all of that.
So stay tuned, I'm hoping in a couple of weeks, it will be up and running, though I won't probably be putting a lot of product on it until after the Guild Show November 21-24. After that, I will be diligent about keeping the web site as current as possible.
The mushrooms in the last post were oyster mushrooms, and this one is "hen in the woods".
Both allegedly edible.
Here's what's for dessert.....a Swedish Apple Pie.....to die for I might add, and SO easy.
Recipe available on request.
This next minutia is for Lois, I know she wants to know. How accurate it is? Well, who really knows.
So the other day I was wasting time on Pinterest..... and I saw the term "chaffle".
And of course, I said WTH is a CHAFFLE???????
Which led me to tons of pins, and basically, a chaffle is a thing popular with Keto diets.
It's a waffle, made with cheese and eggs........and there are more variations than I could imagine.
You can use any old waffle maker, but they suggest this Mini Dash.........about $10 at Target.
And the first one I made was pretty tasty, kind of like an egg muffin...but so much easier and quicker.
I'm sure I will be making more.
Well, the hand dyed milk warp is on the AVL, and I'm using a hand dyed cotton hemp as weft. It is yardage.
Lois is weaving an 8 harness draft, making towels, on the Baby Wolf, in 8/2 cotton.
I love the pattern.
and the color combination.
I usually love October, but this year, the abundance of ticks has me pretty disheartened. I hadn't seen any ticks all summer, and this week alone, I've taken at least 20 off the dogs, and a couple off myself.
They are supposedly more active at this time of year. They are hateful little creatures, and I am nostalgic for those days when I was growing up, and my kids were growing up, when we had never even heard of them, didn't worry about them, and being outside was a lot more enjoyable without them.
The world is going to hell, in a hand basket.
