DIY Elbow Patch While perusing Pinterest one evening, I came across an intriguing tutorial on the wonderful art of needle felting. I had to learn more – especially after realizing it entailed repeatedly stabbing a needle up and down into a piece of fabric or sweater. A satisfying stress reliever that results in something wearable? Sign me up. And now that I can officially call myself a needle felting maven (and nerd), trust me when I say that you’re going to have a blast with this technique. You’ll need: With the sweater on, place a piece of tape about half an inch below the elbow. Align and center the bottom of the cookie cutter along the top of the tape. Fill the cutter, spreading out the wool fibers evenly. At the base of all felting needles are tiny, sharp burrs, which grab and interlock the wool fibers. Continue stabbing away until the surface is flat and even. Remove the cutter and use the tip of the needle to reign in any stray fibers, if necessary. Carefully peel the sweater away from the foam.

It’s not necessarily that they don’t care, sometimes it’s simply that other people are caught up in their own lives at the moment and simply don’t realize you’re waiting for them to motivate you. When You See a Slump Coming Forced vs. Final thoughts on self-motivation … Mahalo!

Limoncello Recipe Limoncello While searching for a good recipe for Limoncello, I found a lot of conflicting information. Some recipes use vodka, others use grain alcohol (without specifying the potency, which varies) and others even used rum! So I started with the premise that grain alcohol will extract the most lemon oil and flavor from lemon zest. Limoncello 3 pounds lemons, preferably organic. 16 oz. grain alcohol, 190 proof (I use Everclear) Wash the lemons thoroughly in warm water, and rinse well.
