Today's Creative Ventures...

Knitting Luke's Second Sock and figuring out tonight's dinner. 

My Freshly New Knitted Head Kerchief.
This is the first time I figured out bobbles.  I will post more about this soon too.

Busting my yarn stash....

here is my yarn basket with finished scrappy dish clothes. 
( used up all my odds and ends of craft cotton)

A Sample of my new way of eating. 
( This pic is for you Maria! [o; )

 Are you asking what in the world?  [o=  
For breakfast I eat soaked lacto fermented cooked oats with soaked chia seeds ( nick names vegan fish eggs. [o; ) And raw pumpkin seeds.  I will go more into this later.  But today is a quick and more visual post.

I also had fun playing with my camera  too by taking these pics. 

Being Creative 


  1. OK, that knitted head kerchief is just about the coolest thing I've seen created in a while.

    And your breakfast has me very curious indeed!

  2. oh my goodness Mary...it really looks different :)
    What a lovely basket...

  3. LOVE the shape of your knitted kerchief, Mary!
    Very pretty.
    And your breakfast looks wonderful and healthy!
    blessings..Trish xx

  4. I like how your hair can hang out the back. Very nice. I love raw pumpkin seeds. I have oats quite often these days.

  5. You are creative...and adventurous with your eating...go girl!

  6. Love the head kerchief, Mary. And the breakfast looks delicious! :)
    ((hugs)) to you, my friend!

  7. Love the knitting!!! Not so sure about the food, haha. You go girl!!! HUGS!!!

  8. Your knitting projects are so cute. Love the kerchief, very nice. Glad you are having fun with your camera. :)

  9. That kerchief is WAY cool! We are soaking our oats, too, ala Nourishing Traditions...I think the texture is smooth and delightful when they're soaked :-) I made NT's soaked bread, I'll try yours next (will do the end of the week) and see how it turns out. The NT soaked bread (I did the one you add some OG white flour to to make it good for sandwiches) is so light and soft, very good, I thought! Can't wait to try yours!

    Love and {{{HUGS}}},

  10. The basket of "strings and things" (which is what we call it around here) is just a fabulous homey picture. I like it.

  11. Oh love all the knitting I really need to make some more dishcloths...We should be moving back to our house this week and we have been busy so I have not have time for any of the fun crafty stuff I do miss it so much. Oh I would love to hear more about what you are eating and what changes you have made we recently made lots of changes to our diet as well. It is always good to hear what others are doing and if it works for them Good Health is truly a journey ~Enjoy the rest of your weekend Love Heather

  12. ooo, love your bobbles! I've been enjoying pumpkin seeds at breakfast too. I put a granola/pumpkin seed mix on yogurt for breakfast.

  13. Must have that kerchief pattern!! You didn't share a link... does that meant it's from a book? Love, LOVE it.

    Blessings, Debbie

  14. Hi Mary! After being away from home at the homeschooling conference in Redmond over the weekend, I've been enjoying a slow morning here at my computer catching up with everyone over coffee. So nice to see what you've been up to. Your breakfast looks interesting, to say the least. We're such a "texture" family when it comes to what we eat, that I'm not sure even I could do the soaked chia seeds (even though I love tapioca...). Glad you've found ways to incorporated more frugal, nourishing foods into your diet and look forward to what you'll have to share with us. :)

    Blessings! ~Lisa
