Scraps and Leftovers
=
A neat pile of parts leftover from the last Bon Bon arranged on my table. Can I make something new and interesting from these? Or will I just be marking time? It would be easy to do a small piece now, after four larger works, but even so, is it necessary?
Should I maybe clean up my space and start over fresh on something brand new and exciting...that could take weeks to emerge?

Maybe I should knit. This cardigan got started to have something to bring to a knitting group, that I never did leave the house to attend. I let weather stop me. It is also made from scraps and leftovers from other projects.
While it seems pretty enough, it isn't the sort of thing I would wear to feed the chickens, and now that I don't travel, I don't get dressed up much. Or even regularly...
Today I will get dressed, as we are going to the garden center to talk to the guy about dirt.
I am so excited about dirt these days. Last week before the snow (3/4") I walked about the property in search of a good spot of humus. I found some that was dark brown, not red, and nearly perfect. Since we have abundant fallen leaves, one would think there would be wonderfully fertile soil, but it isn't in our garden area. That got compacted and is mostly clay so we need to have some topsoil/humus/compost delivered and spread before we can expect to have a decent garden. I am really hoping that we can also have it done for us, not by us. If you can imagine one wheelbarrow and two old fogeys moving yards of soil up hill...not gonna be easy.
And one more bit of scraps and leftovers. I came across the book (online) Artisan Bread in Five Minutes or some such title. I read the excerpt and got inspired to make some. I had just about a pound of flour left in my bin. I didn't feel like measuring, but added a couple tablespoons of salt, a packet of yeast, and warm water to the flour, right in the bin, until it was a soupy gloppy mess. Overnight it rose beautifully, but I am not going to bake it off just yet. I will let it sit on the porch until it sours a bit, and then we'll have a batch or two of sourdough bread.

Something good from scraps and leftovers....

  1. When you have your topsoil/humus delivered you might want to ask them to mix in some sand. Then when you mix it in with the clay-filled base it will help to "lighten" it. When I was growing up in Jersey the soil was terrible - a neighbor suggested adding sand every time we "added" to the beds and it made a huge difference.

    the cardigan is going to be wonderful!

  2. Your knitting is so intriguing. The colors make me so joyful! If you don't want to finish it, I know someone who would give it a good home ;>)

  3. Why not wear something pretty while you feed the chickens? You might even get better eggs.

    Is it hard for you to throw away left over quilt sections? I find myself making stuff just so I can use stuff up. Like you said marking time. Not the most credive use of my time. Liz
