Poking around the blogisphere

I  am a committed blog reader, even in this era of Face book and Twitter, and go out looking for  new blogs every day.   Finding such interesting blogs all the time made my own lists grow so long that they were moved to  a separate blog.  That is the cactus flower button in the side bar.

 Today THIS blog rolled up in the hunt, and it's called Lost Arts Studio.  She has a tutorial on making tarn ( a yarn like product) from old T shirts..great stuff!

Hope you like it, too


  1. duh....I could have had a V8!! 'click' the catcus...sometimes I totally just miss the sidebar! Then sometimes I make a point to really look at people's sidebars! facebook I simply love to hate...tho have one (under pj) I have a raverly acct but never have used it...and twitter? well, I'd rather listen to birds!! ;)I, too, still love reading blogs!!! I'm wondering where everyone has gone to organize their blogs, but the 'bloglines' subcriptions have gone down. What do you use?

  2. Awww. A cactus isn't as obviously connected with knitting, but of course it does have needles. hehe

    I love Ravely. I didn't think I would but the groups that I'm in really give a person a lot of support and friendship and old fashion help, like how to downsize when you absolutely have to. Poke around again maybe? But face book is too big. It's just too big and unwieldy for me. It's friendly, and lots of nice people, but it's not for me. I've tried a couple of times but no thanks and I see nothing but trouble with twitter. Do we really want to know what people other than our own family are doing 7/24? I don't!

    I started using bloglines and still do to keep up with most of the blogs I read, but I really do use the two rings I'm in and my own lists. They always lead to new blogs.

    People are just the most interesting thing in life, from one end of the spectrum to the other.

    Americans are truly a friendly and mostly kind people when they know the truth about something. I hate it when power mongers lie to us. I think blogs help us to remain as "real people" to each other.

    Well, that's the edge of the soap box down there; I'll just hop of it! lol.

  4. Made a silly word mistake.. It's late, I should be in bed.

    It should have read:

    I have to say I apologize to my foreign readers for leaving them out because I try to read blogs from all over the world. I'd rather be a world citizen than not, and the only way to do that is to grow towards it. We aren't really raised as world citizens, not my generation anyway, we were/are very much into ourselves.

    It's good to get out of oneself and become a completely human being, accepting all and not drawing lines anymore on maps that are basically artificial ones. That is not the way to Perfect Peace.
