1) Quilting 101. It's hard to tell, but the fabric has adorable little owls. Altogether the 45'' x 60'' quilt took about 8 hours and cost about $20 dollars. I used 3 fat quarters, 2 packages of bias tape, and scrap fabric.
2) Reading The Backyard Homestead's Guide to Raising Farm Animals. I really enjoyed this book, particularly learning about raising ducks and rabbits.
3) How to cure a cold with herbal remedies. Feeling a terrible cold coming on I tried "Fire Water" as found in "Being Your Own Doctor." True to the name, "Fire Water" (which utilizes cayenne pepper) is EXTREMELY HOT. It did, however, reduce the cold to a mere sore throat for several days.
4) Dehydrating the last of the carrots from our garden. In the fall we planted a row of carrots and stored them in the ground all winter along with the turnips. Anticipating Spring planting, we dug up the final carrots and dehydrated them in 2 batches. About 3 pounds of carrots yielded 1 cup of dehydrated carrots!
For more information on dehydration, I enjoyed this book. It provides easy to reference charts and some great recipes that aren't available online.
