2) I learned several things yesterday and one was that there is a product that will soften my dried up Sculpey clay and it's made by Sculpey and I can get that and MORE Sculpey all on Amazon.
Also, I am reading a very good book about the Amish and then there was a special on PBS last night including the very authors that wrote the book I'm reading. I have learned more than I ever knew about the Amish and their religion, culture and history and it is very interesting.
3) I started knitting a new scarf in a new pattern called a basket weave which is basically cast on 20 stitches, knit 5, purl 5, knit 5, purl 5 for 10 rows and then the opposite; purl 5, knit 5, purl 5, knit 5 for the next 10 rows. I am using 2 skeins of Noro Kureyon but you can use any worsted weight yarn (the author said so...not me) and I am using 10.5 U.S. needle size. It is called the Magic Scarf from Crazy Aunt Purl's book (Laurie Perry), Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair. She also recommends a hearty Shiraz with it but since I didn't have any I sipped some green tea instead.
I'm thinking Martha has the right idea and I may just have to keep doing this every day....it's all about balance. Have a delicious, creative and learning filled day!
