The BF took me to the thrift store in search of yarn. Didn't find yarn, but did come across two Kitchen Art Spice Carousels. Neither carousel looked like they had been used. They retail for $20-24 each. I had a 10% off coupon and ended up paying less than $5 for both of them! Each one holds 12 spice containers and they rotate so you can find the spice you're looking for pretty easily. I ended up filling 21 of the 24 spice containers... all different spices... even different than the 12 you see in the chrome and black carousel in the background.
There are three ways to get the spices out: There's two flip tops... a large one in front so you can use a measuring spoon and a smaller one in back with shaker holes. There's also a flip door on the bottom. See the knobs on the front? They can be turned and each click dispenses 1/4 tsp. of spice out the bottom door.
See the little labels? I made those with my Brother label maker.
I've made different recipes in the crockpot over the years, but never lasagna. Until now. The recipe is very similar to my no-cook lasagna oven recipe.
It was scrumptious!
I kept reading about how easy it is to make homemade tomato soup. I finally decided to try it. It definitely is easy and tastes good. Plus, it doesn't contain all the additives and sodium in canned tomato soup.
I think I may have mentioned stitching on a Wizzer during my lunch hour at work. It's about 2/3 done and I remembered to bring it home for a photo op. I think this may be an OOP kit as I've not seen it online anywhere.

My plan was to get the cat stitched and at least the outline of the moon done over the weekend. However, it didn't happen. Here's my latest progress:

A few years ago, I created an online class to teach fellow stitchers how to make a needlebook. The weekly lessons gave students a chance to ask questions as they created their projects. After class was completed, I put the tutorial on my blog (see left sidebar). Recently, Patricia, a stitcher from Facebook, contacted me and shared the needlebook she created using my tutorial. With her permission, I'd like to share with you:
Isn't it adorable?
Kudos to Patricia for creating a beautiful needlebook!
