Forever fascinated with patchwork, scrapwork, and making things of beauty out of throwaways ... this week I taught myself the crochet v-stitch and I'm attempting to make a scarf out of yarn scraps. Pics are of my progress. Making hats is my joy, so I'm sure this will morph into my hat making. Yes, I'm fully aware that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Speaking of using up stuff ....In the icy depths of the freezer lie tilapia and shrimp .... and in me a craving for seafood chowder ..... so I googled the recipe, combined what I liked about 6 different ones and came up with my own .... I'm a "toss it in by pinches and handfuls" kind of cook so get creative and include what you like in your chowder to make it uniquely your own. Here's my "guidelines" for the recipe.
