First (official) Post

Hope your holidays were just ducky
(my Indian Runners)

This blog was created to fulfill a promise I made to myself to step out of my comfort zone, to put myself out there and let others see my work.  The catalyst that finally prompted action is the above mentioned fundraiser in which I am a willing participant!

My latest projects both include recycling.  I have recycled my husband's old ties.  As a pediatrician, I felt his ties must be teeming with germs :), so, years ago I talked him into wearing bowties.  Not that I had a hidden agenda, but doesn't Woody make a great pillow?

My second recycling project is a pair of mittens I just finished this morning.  They are made from sweaters from a thrift shop and lined with fleece.


  1. Welcome to Blogdom! Your recycling projects are terrific.

  2. Are those really your ducks? Great picture.
    Have a good time blogging.

  3. Yes! Nine of them, thought I was getting all females and ended up with 8 girls and 1 boy. Gosh, is he happy!

  4. What a great start to your blog...the look is wonderful and I love these mittens! I just started my blog recently also, so I know how scary it is to put yourself out there. Have fun with it! Here's mine if you want to drop in... http://quirksltd.wordpress.com/
