Photo journaling

Daytime moon from a few weeks ago.

My sister asked me to tear apart one of her rugs and make her two smaller ones.  This got me to pick up my crochet hook again after about nine months.

There's a handsome big boy outside my door.

A new rug!  I gave this shabby chic one to a friend.

And then I went nuts with the rug making.  I have the calluses to prove it.  There are even more after these ones.  I'll take pics of them individually later.  Maybe.  

Found feather

I kept it.

Honey bee on my aunt's purple cone flower (echinacea)

More of my aunt's flowers

A big moth I found hanging upside down

I ordered this pound of dry mustard (I'm not messing around with those little two ounce cans anymore) from Amazon so I could make some sour refrigerator pickles.  I'm excited about this yellow and red tin too!

Wildflower bouquet

I found this picture of my back and my daughter's shoes on my camera.  (From when we were taking pics of the city.)
Have a great weekend, everybody!

Always love your photo journaling! Those rugs, any tips on making one? I love them! I do crochet but have never attempted a rug.

Here's the tutorial I used to learn how to make rag rugs-
