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.
