You know how with weaving you have odds and ends after you weave?
I have some blogging odds and ends that I'd like to wrap up in this post.
4 topics: Valuable Fungus, Cake/photography, Sock Mystery Solved and Camera FAIL at the beach
Please note, I am NOT a mushroom expert so do not take any advice from me about what you can eat that you find in the woods!!
Remember when I told you about this giant mushroom in our side yard? Well, after a few of you asked if it was edible, I did some checking around and I think it might be.
We'd already removed it when I checked into it. I haven't tried it. I wouldn't try it without some kind of expert help.
I did talk about it with a long-time NH resident and nature lover. She thought it probably was edible and that it might even be pretty unusual and valuable.
Not that I'll be going into business selling mushrooms that I find to restaurants in the area. I will add that one of the best things I've ever tasted was an open-faced wild mushroom lasagne at the Three Chimneys Inn in Durham. That was years and several chefs ago....and I haven't found it anywhere else since. But it was incredible!
The Massachusetts Audubon is holding an edible mushroom class in September. I might try to go.
When I first showed you this birthday cake, the words were backwards. (I quickly snapped this picture narrowly missing the Doritos bag in front of the cake and getting a fairly decent background. Upside down and backwards words didn't bother me a bit!)
Well, turns out it's not hard at all to flip an image in Photoshop. Not hard for Jim at least!
Sock Mystery Solved
Remember when I rejoiced over a sock that had been missing for years resurfaced???
Well, I asked myself where it could have been hiding in my washing machine, and found the likely culprit!! So now I know where to look!
Fortunately, this favorite sock that says "Shebeest" on it has not gone missing yet!!
Beachside Camera FAIL
I told you in some comments that I'd be heading to the beach this week with my weaving buddies.
9 of us met for an oceanside day of weaving, spinning, knitting, gabbing, feasting, walking, resting, and polymer clay button-making.
I took my small digital camera and had massive camera fail. Not only was the battery in the camera dead, but the spare battery I always carry was also dead.
So no beach pictures for you.
I can offer this picture of the red scarf for K in progress. I made noticeable knitting progress sitting on a front porch rocker at the beach. Doesn't get any better than that!!!
Hope you're all having a relaxing and fun weekend!!! Glad I got this all off my chest!!
