|My Bountiful Basket!|
|Scraps for bowls|
|Missing sets of swap blocks|
|Coffee bean burlap bag.|
Last year a friend got me hooked on Bountiful Baskets. We got several baskets before our garden started producing. I usually get them every other week since there is just the two of us feeding off of the basket. This is our first basket of the year. And I am pleased, it was a good one! I hope to get another next week.
A couple weeks ago I had blogged about losing my swap blocks and how they must be in a very safe place. Sure enough they were in plain sight! I have a couple of hooks on the side of my cutting table. I use them to hang scissors, rotary cutters, measuring tape and a bag into which I throw my skinny leftover strips for bowls. I must have hung the bag with the swap blocks on a hook so I wouldn't lose it. Famous last words. I have been working on the blocks. I really need to knuckle down and get them finished and in the mail.
I have been roasting my own coffee for a few years now. The company I order my green beans from have started to package the beans in these cool burlap bags! I made a lined knitting bag for my friend and it turned out nice. I have a bunch of these bags (we go through a lot of coffee in this house!) and want to make more for my Etsy shop. Hopefully if I get the swap blocks finished I can get a prototype made up, I need to improve the design from the one I made for my friend.
This is my Off the Wall post for this week. Check out what everyone else is up to at Nina-Marie's blog.
