It is the end of what has been a week of ups and downs, worry and heartache. There are things are eldest son is going through that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy (but as a Mama Bear I do wish that bad things would happen to those who are putting him through this once again). Some day I may tell you all what the situation is.
As far as thrifty happenings here on the old homestead, there have been a few.
The Butternut squash pie turned out pretty good. It does actually taste like pumpkin pie. This gives me the courage to try some loaves and muffins with it.
I did some mending on a few seams, and even put a new zipper in a pair of pants. Well not really a new zipper but one I salvaged from an old pair of pants years ago. I knew that it would come in handy some day.
I couldn't repair the old knit blanket it was just too far gone. I ended up salvaging the yarn and it will be used in new projects. Perhaps even the mug rugs that are on my project list.
I cut out two pairs of oven mitts today from fabric left from other projects. I hope to start sewing them tomorrow.
Talked to the youngest Kris today. He lives in one of the cities that now have a mask for indoor spaces. I think I just might make a few more for him. The health region is now saying 3 layer masks are better. I could make more filters for him to use and that would give the masks he has three layers. I wonder if I could find some that could be washed.....
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
