Brewing and crafting

During my down time, which I don’t seem to have much of, but I’m not complaining… I’ve been squeezing in a few moments to do some hand crafting.

Kombucha and kefir soda

I have been making some hand crafted items and of course I’ve been staying on top of my ferments; kombucha, water kefir soda and fermented vegetables.

Oh… I finished that little embroidered bag that I made for my daughter. I decided not to purchase ribbon and chose to crochet a cord for her. See?

I liked it so much, that I decided to make another. Can you see the difference? It’s nothing major. With this bag, I do believe I’ll knit an icord. It appears that my daughter likes it to and has asked to swap bags. She’s already has placed the first bag into her book bag.

That’s an adorable bag! It’d make a great project bag.

Cheers on the brewing, I’ve been seeing posts about kombucha and kefir brewing, I think I need to go research the benefits.

Opal, I have been giving some thought to what you said about the fermented coffee– Think I may want to give it a try– where do I start and what do I need?


I like Wholesome Sweeteners! They are a good company! OH!!!! Almost forgot to ask…have you tried Coconut Kefir yet!?

Wholesome Sweeteners – I saw the label on the bag of Organic/Natural Sugar you used in the background 🙂 Sorry should have mentioned that – now I realize how random and off topic it sounded! LOL – sorry about that!
