The girls were so bored; not a busy day there. The one who cut my hair said, she had been reading her car manual :) Last night the Royals lost and the Chiefs won, so the Monday morning drags, I guess.
also making more rag rugs and bowls – so fun ! ! !
I’ve become quite obsessed with this. I even got up at 2:26 because the dog barked. I couldn’t find her and finally checked the bathroom and there she was and couldn’t get out. I took her outside and then tried to go back to sleep and couldn’t so worked on the rag bowl/basket thing for about 45 minutes. Thankfully I got some sleep after that.
And starting a looser one with sheets; it will be larger, about 36″ X 24″ for a possible bath mat. Here is how to tell how big to make an oval rug. The starter should be the difference between the length and width, so the starter is about 12 inches.
Making a rug from a kit I got at Silver Dollar City Saturday. I was frustrated not know how to join the strips properly until I found some good instructions. I have lost the website for those instructions, so here are my own:
I’ve made this tonight and it will cook all night.
21 medium apples (Jonathan, Gala or Fuji)
4 1/2 c. apple juice
6 T. ACV
3 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 tsp. cloves
1/3 tsp. salt
Core and slice with skins on. Add to 6 qt. crockpot and and also the rest of the ingredients. Stir to coat. Cover and cook on low 12 hours or over night. Turn off; let cool for 1 hour,. Blend it in blender. Cool. Refrigerate for 2 weeks or freeze for 6 months.
the next day:
Friday I bought a box of canner tomatoes from the farmers market. Since I don’t can, I will freeze them according to these directions. So glad they can be frozen with the skins on.
