What's Lois doing????

No, she hasn't escaped Crazy as a Loom.  Yet.

She is busy, too.
Weaving Rosepath rugs on the Cranbrook.

If you squint, you can see the diamonds.  They will be easily visible when it is on the floor.
 We are hoping to have a few of these for the Southern, Adirondack Fiber Festival on September 27 and 28, in Greenwich, NY.

Remember the refrigerator pickles I made not long ago??  I got the recipe off Pinterest.  I don't know why I didn't stick to the tried and true recipes that I have had for 30 years.
These pickles were horrific, and tasted like pure vinegar.  I dumped them all.

I got out an old cookbook, and made my "14 day Sweet Pickles".
As always, they rocked.

I made a mistake when I first made them, back in the 70's.  The recipe called for celery seed, and I used mustard seed.  The pickles were so good, I changed the recipe.  No one will ever know what they taste like made "by the book".  Ha!

September is MONKEY SALE month.
Stay tuned.

Hi, Lois. So there you are.

Sorry to hear about your bad batch of pickles, Hilary.

What is wrong with pickles that taste like vinegar? Oh yeah, they have too much pucker power. Yep, I like my pickles a little sweet, too.
