If you leave me an answer to this week's question (by Friday), you could win this:

That's a hank of Sweet Georgia Superwash Worsted in Coastal,
the 2014 Comfy Collection from KnitPicks, and

There are 200 yards of the yarn.  Even though the pattern book is the "2014 Collection," rest assured that I bought it very recently.  There are 32 pages to color with 12 colored pencils.

The Question:
If you could become adept at one of the visual arts, which would you choose?

*Subsequent weeks will further indulge my love of coloring. . .


  1. I'll start but I've already won so I'll disqualify myself---but sketching!

  2. I love taking photos but don't yearn to be better at it than I am (though I'm not brilliant), and I love how portable sketching and painting can be- plus you can use color... But I'd likely choose sculpture because it's so tactile. Plus, I tend to pick things that will frustrate me (!) and the variable of how the material will respond would likely do the trick!

  3. what a great question and marvelous choices, husband fills empty hours with painting and our walls are filled with his work, he also is an excellent photographer and passed this to our son who is a professional photographer, our youngest daughter also paints beautifully. I could not draw a straight line if my life depended on it, but would choose sketching. The idea of sculpting and the hands on of it all intrigues me but sketching would be more do able to me

  4. I am okay with my photography skills, and painting seems like too much work (prep and canvas stretching and all) and sculpting is messy... so I would pick sketching. Seems like it would be a fun way to capture life!

  5. Already won,but sketching. Definitely.

  6. I'm not sure I could choose between photography and sketching. I'd love to be able to do more,than doodle the same hearts and flowers but taking a beautiful photograph is appealing as well.

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:

Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.

As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
