It's Girl Scout cookie time! If you don't manage to come across a booth sale at your local grocery store, search for your county name and "girl scout cookies" -- every council is different, but that's a good start.
Our troop had our first booth sale last night, and pretty much sold out of what I thought was a fairly generous stock. And we have three more sales scheduled! So I'm off to get more Thin Mints, for sure.
I woke up early this morning with the rain, and decided to take a stab -- metaphorically speaking, of course -- at a crochet flower which I'm going to use to identify my tote bag from the fourteen other ones at our meetings. The pattern is a fairly simple one from Simmy at Echoes of a Dream. I am obviously still very new at crochet! but after a few initial puzzled frowns, I got the hang of this one -- and you can probably see that I felt more sure of myself on the last row of petals, in the back.
Obviously, sock yarn wasn't the ideal choice for this particular use -- thicker yarn would be best for a luggage identification -- but it'll do in a pinch. I might turn this one into a barrette later. Hmmm...
