Erm. . .yes. . .thaught it was a dying art when the granny age ladies at Church were amazed. 

Four years ago, my mother-in-law asked for help picking apples. . .on the way over hubby said we'll pick a bag or two and go home.  So we got to the back yard and I looked from the tree to hubby to MIL and back to hubby and told him "go away, I'll call you when I'm ready." Two hours later we were done and had 2 black bags, 2 13 gal bags, and a bunch of plastic grocery bags full of apples.  Takes about two weeks a year depending on the harvest and I've got apple sause, apple butter, pumpkin apple butter, apple pie filling, apple jam and maple apple jam. 

LOL, then when we moved almost 2 years ago we inhearated 3 apple trees and a bunch of raspberry bushes.  Even with freezing half the berries (eating the rest fresh) I had a 13 gal trash bag of berries when the season ame around again and so we had a jam making party. . .each gal made her own batch.  What we learned was surgar free suregell made syrup and regular made jam. . .

Lion Brand's Homespun. . .can you say pain in the butt?  Bought tons of it when it was on sale then found out working with it turns me into a nasty person.

Most of the yarn I have is a mix from yardsales.  This last summer I got 2 13 gal trash bags of the plain Acrilic (for like $10) that I like to double up with the Bernat Baby Coordinates. . .from Walmart.  Thoes are ending up as prayer shawls. . .

Summer before last there were a couple weavers getting rid of the extra fancy $10-$30 a skien yarns for $8 a grocery bag so I got a few bags of that.  Would have baught more had I known how to crochet then, mosty baught it for booking binding and bookmark ends.
