I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Recycling Plastic Bags?

This is a link that I share in my group. This lady which I met by another link in aa group has so many ideas of what to do with Plastic bags and other materials. If you want to make a Tote bag to carry your groceries what better than a bag made out of recycled shopping bags!
This is one of the examples of a Tote made with recycled bags. Below is another example of another eco-tote bag. Think of the possibilities! This lady also teaches you how to make the yarn that you need to make this items here are some tips and instructions that you will be able to appreciate --> http://www.myrecycledbags.com/category/tips-and-instructions/



Here is the link http://www.myrecycledbags.com/my-pattern-links/ , I will say this, I am more than ever committed to reduce my oil (petroleum) . Petroleum (Latin Petroleum derived from Greek πέτρα (Latin petra) - rock + ἔλαιον (Latin oleum) - oil) or crude oil is a naturally occurring liquid found in formations in the Earth consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons (mostly alkanes) of various lengths. The approximate length range is C5H12 to C18H38. Any shorter hydrocarbons are considered natural gas or natural gas liquids, while long-chain hydrocarbons are more viscous, and the longest chains are paraffin wax. In its naturally occurring form, it may contain other nonmetallic elements such as sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen.[1] It is usually black or dark brown (although it may be yellowish or even greenish) but varies greatly in appearance, depending on its composition. Crude oil may also be found in semi-solid form mixed with sand, as in the Athabasca oil sands in Canada, where it may be referred to as crude bitumen.

Somehow we need to keep down our petroleum. Why is there a gas price hike when there are so many hybrid cars? If they save gas why aren't we flowing in a surplus of gasoline so that the price fall? Interesting indeed, reminds me of the Ferengi Rule of Acquisition #10 " GREED IS ETERNAL". Thanks for stopping by.
