The Owl Has Left the Owlery

Yes, I mailed my package this morning via Priority Owl Post. He is winging his way east and should arrive at his destination in a few days.

Cheers for another great swap! I hope there will be a #5!

New Poll

Hey everyone - a bit of fun on my blog ... I put up a new poll:

Fantasy pet, which would you like?

Pop on over and cast your vote Ginger Gargoyle Gems

For anyone interested in the results of my last poll (age of participants in the HSS4) I moved it to the very bottom of my page ... just keep scrolling down -- my side bar is very long because of my stash lists.

Queen Frysia
(aka ginger gargoyle)

Moth Repellents

Grandma Beth shared the following on another list we share. I thought it might be of use to someone here, as well. All the recipes/suggestions use natural ingredients, many of which are easily grown in the average garden.

Here's a moth repellent recipe from Martha Stewart
Another from DIY Life
From TipNut
Most of them are variations on the same herbs. I'm thinking making
several of them and stowing in my sock yarns....and other wools, too,
might be a great idea, not to mention a "smelly" treat when opening up
the containers!

This was from another list I am on. I'm already thinking that a few of
the bottles I've been saving from the recycle bin would look great with
these in them and a shear fabric tied over the top.

Or maybe sew the bags in house colors, or the shape of owls. So many
possibilities. Grandma

3 Days left!

Ok it is time to get your house elves in high gear, brush up on your knitting charms we only have 3 days left to get your soks done and send them off with the owl!! If you need anything or help with anything please ask!!!

I can't wait to see all the packages that everyone got!
