The other day Mike and I ducked into the Astor Place Walgreens looking for a restroom. There are no public restrooms in the Astor Place Walgreens but I did spot this amazing tool set for just $3.99!!!!
I went home, went to the bathroom, and then emptied out the cheap tools and filled the case with my crochet supplies. It works perfectly and securely holds all of my hooks, my safety eyes for my dolls, note paper, a pen, scissors, a seam ripper tool, and my magnetic block that holds my pins and needles.
It even has a cover to keep my supplies from falling out of their compartments.
I tell you, I've purchased many different varieties of crochet tool cases over the years (most costing between $15 and $40 bucks) and they all pale in comparison to this case. If you need a crochet case, get yourself to the Astor Place Walgreens now while supplies last.
We have a little breather from work this month so in a few days we're packing up and heading to Ohio. Here is a preview of what we're likely to see:
Dad and one of his bee swarms
Just a few of Dad's many, many hives
Some of Dad's bees at work
While the world bee population is dwindling, my Dad is having trouble building hives fast enough to accommodate his growing bee population!!! Dad has been keeping bees for more than 40 years. He attributes his success to his bountiful garden and the many fruit trees on his property that provide his bees with good nourishment.
When I ask dad about the tremendous success of his garden and fruit trees (so far this year he's sold over 300 pounds of peaches!) he says the success is due to his bees who provide pollination. There you have it! The secret to hearty fruit trees and a thriving bee population is to have BOTH.
