Photo Finish Friday


We got snow yesterday! It's the earliest in the year we have had snow since we moved to Colorado.  Of course, it will all melt today as we will get up to 64 degrees and it's supposed to be 71 tomorrow. Ah, crazy Colorado!
Hello friends! How are you this week? I'm doing well, no migraines and I've adjusted to not eating all the things I told you about last Friday. Yes, there have been moments of feeling sad about not being able to eat something (pizza, I'm looking at you) but I have discovered some great things. Like, have you tried Vegenaise? If not, it's delicious. I've been making tuna salad sandwiches with it and also homemade honey mustard dressing that I'm obsessed with, eating tons of salad. Off for lunch. Yes, tuna sandwich with a salad. Later gators, have a lovely weekend! XOXO--Teresa

UPDATE: Philadelphia, PA Chapter

Look at these awesome bags that Donna tie-dyed! Love them, so will her students, I'm sure! Keep up the great work Donna, so excited that you are going to teach your students how to sew bags. YAY! Teresa

Hello again!

It’s been awhile but I haven’t forgotten about you. I am following through on my plan of making bags out of plain fabric and tie dyeing them to teach the after school students sewing. 

I dyed them yesterday (first time I ever did this) and am so happy with how they turned out. 

I hope you like them!

Photo Finish Friday

Long tailed weasel in a wood pile at our cabin. Hubby took the photo last week while he was up there hunting.
Isn't it the cutest thing? He said it was running through the wood popping up in different spots. :)
Hello there, how was your week? Mine was good. I'm getting adjusted to a new diet. Some of you asked about this so I will share more. I had a follow up visit with my Naturopath Doc last Friday and got the results of my blood antigen test. For the next four weeks I am to avoid the following foods:

Almond, Aspergillus mix, Beef (which I haven't eaten in 30 years), Casein, Cashew, Clams, Coffee, Dairy, Crab, Eggs, Gluten, Goat milk, Mushrooms, Onion, Rye, Tomato, White potato, Avocado, Barley, Flax, Hops, Spinach and Whole wheat.

After 4 weeks, I am going to add things back in and see if they cause migraines or not.

Fun, huh? So how has it been going? It's ok. I have oatmeal with berries and pecans for breakfast every morning now instead of eggs. For lunch it's usually edamame or rice toast with peanut butter and a salad. Dinner is usually fish with veggies and rice or some type of Mexican food like salad with black beans, coconut cheese (which is surprisingly good!) and corn chips or corn tortilla tacos.

It will be interesting to add things back in and see how I do. Since I wasn't having any kind of stomach/digestive issues that is not a concern, it's only the migraines. I sure hope I can have some of those foods again. Off to eat my boring lunch. XOXO--Teresa

Washington Bag!

Hi Teresa,
Becky raises chickens and loves her new bag made from one that feed comes in. It’s very sturdy and definitely unique. This one was sewed by Bagette Bell, and Bagette Linda’s daughter sewed the green webbing.
Best,
