what are we DOING?

I’m thinking of killing my Etsy shop in a slow, painful death as I slowly, painfully get rid of my inventory (it could take years!). I haven’t sewn in a long time and I’m just losing interest in making garb with the hopes that someone, somewhere will buy it. I think I just want to make garb for friends and family from now on, so they can be there to provide measurements and try on mockups and all that. The weaving sells pretty well, so if I ever get rid of all the garb and jewelry, I’ll change my shop name and just sell weaving.

So here’s what I’m making:

Current tablet weaving project. I’m nearly done with it. The speckly light green yarn is 100% wool, the dark green yarn is mostly lambswool with some cashmere. Luxurious! I hope someone appreciates it enough to buy it.

For the yard work, I shoveled a lot of that gravel to transport it from the driveway to the back yard. The pain! I have no idea what the gravel is for.


And today I cleaned my room (yay!). It’s not REALLY clean, but it’s the best I could do. While cleaning off the hoarder pile of papers on my desk, I found a bunch of notes for my script and ended up writing a bunch of scenes. Yay! I’m getting there!

One more thing. Our garden was freezing, so we picked all the tomatoes to let the plants die. The vast majority of these tomatoes are green. I’ve been making and snarfing down salsa verde like crazy. I make a new batch every day. Here’s the recipe:



1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
3 cups diced green tomatoes
1/2 cup parsley
1/4 cup diced onion (1 small onion)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. thyme
2 tsp. sugar
4 garlic cloves, minced (2 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. – 1 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)

Blend all ingredients together until liquefied. Makes 1 quart.

    Cilantro-free salsa recipe! Win! :)

    I love the pattern and the color of the tablet weaving you’re working on. Maybe specializing in tablet weaving on your Etsy store will actually be a really good thing all around.

    I’ve never done anything with Green tomatoes, but I am going to try this. There are a bunch of green tomatoes on my dead plant outside. Will they still be okay? We shall see.

    Yeah, they aren’t green anymore. More of a greyish brown :(
