    I love doing some Christmas in July projects. Here are some quick and cute peppermint scrubbies you can crochet that make wonderful little Christmas gift ideas. Of course I had to make some using recycled plastic bags. Here is a crocheted scrubbie with a green plarn center made from a thin cut plastic bag. I used one green plastic bag cut 1/4 inch wide to make the center and used cotton to finish it.

The work here provides not only an enormous amount of, freely available, data; but is also presented in a reproducible, reusable containerized form, allowing scientists to recreate the experiments at the touch of a button.

The main difference in this towel topper is that it’s a heavier, more basic pattern for the topper. It has a waffle looking texture to the pattern and so I named it the Waffle Towel Topper pattern. This towel topper is crocheted using sugar n’cream weight cotton yarn with a G crochet hook. I used a kitchen towel folded in half that requires no cutting or sewing.

    Usually if I find antiques or near antiques at all they are broken or damaged. Like this old chalkboard with abacus I picked up last summer. Still I believed it was worth rescuing and my buyer certainly did too. He was a very friendly guy who confirmed my idea that it was from the 1920-s and told me that judging by the walnut it’s made of was used as an educational toy for higher class children. Curiously I asked him what he was going to do with it and he said it would end up as a picture frame. Quite original!Unfortunately he lived in another town and asked me to ship it. I was pretty…

I put it up at a set price but without success. When the ad expired I forgot about it and left the basket gathering dust under my bed holding some mess out of the way.Over a year later I was about to offer it in a Facebook free pick up group, then decided to try one last time. Ready to accept any price I left it at free bidding. And what do you know, a week later a lady offered the exact amount I had asked…

    The production line is the line of machinery at your factory or office where materials move through a process, completing the production.
