Hello, I'm in Davis, WV. That's Tucker County, next to Canaan Valley Resort and Timberline Ski Resort, etc... I'm up on a mountain in the middle of nowhere, basically. About 20 miles from Oakland, MD. Anybody nearby?
How about a "gift in a jar"? You know, like, a jar of dried soup mix or brownie mix or pancake mix or something like that. You just take the recipe, mix it in a jar and seal it, cut out a pretty cloth square for the top, tie some jute or twine or ribbon around it, and maybe attach a homemade card to it stating what it is and how to make it. Maybe assemble a few of these in a pretty basket with some raffia all around.
Okay, so I finished weaving a very rustic shawl on my triloom. I used handspun/hand-dyed wool. This project took me about a week, out of which I worked about 30 minutes a day. I'll try and post a picture if I can figure out how to do it.
