Homekeeper Journal 2/3/2011

This week's journal prompts brought to you by Sylvia over at the Christian Homekeeper Network.  Check her out at

In My Kitchen this week ……

We’re using up odds and ends this week. It’s actually been quite easy to do since we received about two feet of snow beginning Monday night and haven’t left the house since.

When I think about Crafting/Sewing/Making Things, I want to …

do more. I would like to learn to sew better than I do now, but I know that practice makes perfect and I haven’t seen any tempting sewing courses available in my area. I have a lot of yarn I need to use up too, but just can’t seem to get back into crocheting.

My favorite creative outlet is ……..

writing and taking pictures. Very immediate. I also think of cooking as a creative outlet too. I do that a lot. I used to crochet a lot too, but haven’t for several years.

A Craft that I’d like to learn is ….

I don’t think there are many crafts that I would not like to learn. I’ve always wanted to know how to weld. I would like to be able to make baskets. Carving appeals to me. Sewing, knitting, drawing, painting, grooming dogs… Pretty much everything.

One Craft that I can do but don’t do much is ….

Crochet. I need to get back on it. I wouldn’t even have to buy yarn.

An unusual Craft that I can do or would like to do is ….

I would like to know how to do blown glass, stained glass, or make pottery. I would also like to play around with a wood lathe, just to see if I could make something.

Another Craft that I secretly long to do but don’t right now is ….

rug making. I would like to know how to make rag rugs. I know it has something to do with crocheting and material. Not that I have a place for a big rug. Not that it would go with anything.

The Craft/Creative Work that I have no desire whatsoever to do ……

is soap or candle making.
