About Me

I can't believe that it's already Friday, and Friday the 13th at that, if you're superstituos. I didn't see where the time went. Yesterday I picked some cucumbers from my garden to make Lady Ashburnham pickles but I haven't cut up the cucumbers yet. I posted some photos somewhere down the blog.  I'm just about ready to start cutting my cukes to soak in a brine.

I added a new Gadjet to my  newbee blog. It's a Youtube video bar on the left side at the top, under my profile.  I wanted to put a Rug Hooking Herringbone Binding and a crocheted edge binding videos on my blog but I didn't succeeded. You still can see the video by clicking on Youtube button and in the space provided at the top, type in Rug Hooking Herringbone Binding and enter or search and it will take you there hopefully.  It worked for me. It's pretty neat how the lady  from Nova Scotia bindded her rug.

On a happy note, my overdue heifer gave birth unassisted today to a huge heifer calf, two weeks overdue. The overdue cow is still waiting. That's all for now...  JB
