Monday Stuff on the Way to Other Stuff: Let's Be Brief

I'm still here. Sort of.

The Mama is still recovering -- and I am staying in Michigan with her. But I leave Saturday to teach for a week at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. "Pioneer quilting" is on the menu -- and we're going to have fun. More here if you're curious...there are still a few student spots, if you'd like to participate! This school teaches everything from blacksmithing to clogging -- many of them old-timey arts that need to be kept fresh. I'm looking forward to it. 
   Before I go, though, there are quilt samples to finish, an article or two to write, and final items for PAAQT's annual conference to finish up. (PAAQT is a national quilt appraisers group - head here, if you're curious about that. Yours truly is currently president.)
    Which makes me busier than, as the Brick says, 'A one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.' But I did notice a few things on the Internet... (photos below, by the way, are from the John Campbell school)

Shakshuka recipes. If you haven't tried this Middle Eastern eggs-and-tomato-sauce dish, you're missing out. It's frugal as all getout, too. (From Livelovelux)

Two cereal boxes and a mirror. That's what you need to make this wonderful wall piece. (From Flimsy Pi)

Mentos. A tank of Diet Coke. Weird.

A mommy blogger, who chronicled her son's struggle with illness -- and his death. Now she's been arrested for poisoning him.

 How some people squander their wealth -- from the viewpoint of a financial planner and her nail polish-loving daughter.

Have a good week.
