Guest Post

I did a guest post on my mom's site last week. I am sorry that I did not post about it before now.
Mom and Joy in My Kitchen are doing a series on nut allergies. Joy in My Kitchen has had a nut allergy since she a child. She is an adult now. Mom is posting about my nut allergy which I have only had for a few months.

I hope you enjoy the post!

The Rabbit Under the Back Deck!

There is a rabbit living under my family's back deck! It is really cute. The rabbit is probably about a year old. It is a cottontail rabbit. I can see why they named them "cottontail." Its tail is a white ball of fluff.

My sister and I took several pictures of it. I am surprised that it did not get scared!

Here are some of the pictures that I took.

The rabbit from a distance.

Isn't it cute?

Finding Inexpensive Thread and Yarn

I have several suggestions on finding cheap yarn or thread. I like to have a lot of yarn and thread on hand for my different projects, but I do not like spending a lot of money on it.

Yarn and thread can be very expensive. I have found several ways though, to help me save money on yarn and thread.

One way to fined cheap yarn or thread is to watch for sales in newspaper adds. I often find yarn and thread this way.

Another way to find yarn or thread is to go to garage sales. I have never found yarn or thread at a garage sale, but my friend has.

My crochet teacher often buys yarn in big bulks. It is cheaper that way. I do not make a lot of things with yarn, so I have never bought it in big bulks. However, I do not suggest buying thread by the bulk. It is cheaper, but it was difficult to use. When I used it, it got tangled.

I have also ordered crochet thread online. I have been able to find some good deals on hard to find thread this way.
