Hello, All,

Hope everyone had a nice holiday.  We did.  Dinner with my nephew and his family.  His mother, my sister, unfortunately was laid up with a migraine and couldn't come.  But we talked to her by phone and she is feeling better.

I always find it interesting when I find someone gives a name to things I do.  A couple of years ago I did a pair of quilts for a friend where I cut the figures I wanted from the fabric and put them into the quilt.  Then suddenly every quilt magazine on the stands touted the 'fussy cut' techniques.  I have lately been engaged in cutting the plastic shopping bags into strips and joining the strips so I can crochet them into something else.  Today, on the 'crochet' google search, I found a site that gives a name to the result.  'Plarn,' I assume, conjoins yarn and plastic.   Recycle Cindy has a nice pattern for a tote with a couple of very interesting suggestions I will have to remember when I start using my plarn.

There isn't much else going on that I want to comment on so I will make this post a short one.

I can't wait to see what your "plarn" creations look like. I wish I could still crochet.
