Here is my first crochet mushroom. As usual, I do not keep notes on the pattern as I crochet, so this is a one of a kind.

I have been pulling out half-finished projects to keep me inspired – I finished the stitching on this stocking last night. Now to figure out how to completely finish!

Melony was kind enough to get me a subscription to Real Simple magazine and I absolutely LOVE the recipes!

I made the black bean soup for an afternoon dinner yesterday and Dean and I really enjoyed it. Here is the link:

The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
and habit hardens into character;
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings
