A small part of me briefly considered running some to the store back in Brainerd that I liked so much to see about selling on consignment, but then I remembered the last time I showed them my earrings and the lady was pretty firm about my style being "not a good fit" for the store. I'm pretty sure what she meant was that only skilled professional artists are welcome there, and not folks like me, who just dabble and make a hobby of it. Despite really liking these dish cloths, and fully standing behind them (we use them for our own dishes too), I lack the confidence to try again with pitching something for consignment.
Today I put in an order with SeedsNow to get some garlic samples. I know it's late in the season, and I'm not even sure if it's too late for garlic, but I want to give it a try. I bought Nootka Rose, Silver Rose, and Early Purple Italian. I plan on pulling back some of the mulch in the new side garden to plant them in there. I suppose the worst case scenario is that it's too late, I plant them, they don't come up, and I've wasted $6. Best case scenario, we get to try three kinds of garlic next year. We're only getting the sample size, so three cloves of each variety. Start small. I wanted to buy a variety from Baker Creek, but they only sell by 1/2-pound packages, and I wasn't sure we wanted to invest $20 into an experiment with garlic.
While unable to sleep the night before last, I decided to try my hand at something new. I made a yarn butterfly. It actually turned out really nice, and I am thoroughly impressed with it. I'd like to find a hair clip that I can fasten it to. Unfortunately, with no pattern and no working knowledge of how one is "supposed" to make a yarn butterfly, it took me quite a while, and I don't plan on making any more in the future.
