Ordering Online Part 1

Due to my busy life and time constraints, I like to order things online. It’s easier to browse in the evening on my tablet or laptop during lunch than to cart bored kids into a fabric store or craft store and actually come out with fabric I need instead of a box of 25 foam craft frames. The grocery store is a mad house with kids, every other person trying to rush in and out between work and home, and weekends are just pure misery.

I recently restarted my Organics To You service to keep fresh vegetables and fruits in the house. This also keeps my cooking fresh and adventurous as I have to find creative ways to cook things like fava beans, chard, kale and it keeps the kids happy as they have a continuous variety of fruit to snack on. This way I only have to go to the grocery store to stock up on dairy, meat and bread type items.

If, say, I decide I no longer want fava beans, or come this fall, turnips, I can simple go online to my account and ask to have those omitted. If I need to skip an order or move my order to every-other-week, that’s an option as well. It’s quite convenient and completely without the hassle of the grocery store. It’s like the farmer’s market is delivered to me personally in this nice, jam-packed box that contains way more than I could get for the same price at the store or farmer’s market. I love it.

Best Little Cloche In Portland

How’s that for modesty?

Technically, since it’s not really based on MY pattern, it’s a compliment to Anneliese’s pattern on Aesthetic Nest.

I made a list of a few things I wanted to get done this spring and, with 3 days left of spring, I’m not going to quite make the list but I’m ok with that. I’ve added a few other things and am making acceptable progress considering how packed I keep my days.

I finished Hazel’s hat, which was on the top of my list if not only because it should be the easiest to complete. HAHAHAHA. Ahem. Sorry. My little girl is already going to be 8 years old this summer and she’s a big 8 year old. So using the Aesthetic Nest Best Little Girl Cloche pattern had to be more in theory than exact practice. I increased the size and added a few (many) more patterned rows. I think it still turned out super darn cute. It’s a smidge warped due to increasing size a bit too on-the-fly, but she loves it anyway.  These photos are pre-washing and I think it will tighten up well after washing being that it’s Lily Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn in Summer Splash.
