Myrecycledbags.com is my latest favorite website/blog. Cindy is one amazingly creative person to come up with a wonderful idea for using these plastic bags we always seem to have around.
For anyone with little crochet knowledge and tons of plastic bags this is an ultimate cool project. It will also be a great project for kids. The yarn used is made using plastic bags - plarn. There is a picture tutorial here and it looks quite simple.
With her new found hobby being crocheting, and a passion for a cleaner environment, V is ready to jump into this project soon.

Our visits to other Southern cities - Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and many more really left us thinking that Southern Hospitality is long gone and dead just like chivalry. Our trip to NYC last year was a rude awakening (pun-intended). We did realize Houstonians and Texans and Southerners along with all the drawls and y'lls pack in quite a lot of friendly nature reserved for everyone they meet.
Imagine this, you are on a one lane road - a country road on a Saturday morning. The road is almost deserted other than few well-worn pick-up trucks (Texas stable) whizzing past. Probably ranch hands carrying on their chores. On both sides are typical Texas farms, grass, hay bales, a few longhorns grazing, oil rigs, pipe lines, sprinklers, wildflowers. In this wild west landscape, a lone sedan making its way on this road suddenly without warning turns on its indicator lights and pulls into a small dirt track with a "no trespassing" sign big and bold. The occupants of the sedan are surprised to see the while Ford pick-up truck behind them slowing down a few feet in front of them and the driver puts out his head looking at them. The occupants, V and R are stunned, V's over active imagination is conjuring up everything from highway robbery to a mere coincidence. But soon they realize that the Texan had just done what any other friendly Texan would have done, inquire if the suddenly-pulled-off-the-road-sedan needed any help on a lonely road leading to a ghost town.
Is this Southern Hospitality? Or is this the way life needs to be lived? Questions we asked ourselves! Randomn acts of kindness puts a smile on a stranger's face and that smile will surely come back to you when you need it!
Off they went IKEA, they measured and measured more and finally after quite some pondering and sweat equity designed their own closets and assembled them. Something to take great pride in ... first attempts at something of that scale and surprises it worked...
She thought about it a lot and planned out whose clothes goes where and places for assorted stuff that include gifts, jewelery, handbags... They had the "his" and "her" space. It looked perfect! It was their dream house and dream closet....
Slowly over the period of time, she started encroaching on "his" space and he being the nice guy always let her take over.... After all all he needed were two pairs of blue jeans, a few maroon tees, a couple of formal pants and shirts (and yes make them maroon, greys work too). After every trip to the mall, every trip to India, every arriving package from India her collection grew and more encroachments.
A couple of months earlier, they looked into the space called their closet where their clothes were thrown haphazardly and we were at times jumping over things lying on the floor. Oh yeah it is worth mentioning here, that 99% of the times, the things gracing the floor are V's.
Now if someone can launch such a service to Houston!!
Thanks K for those mangoes!
The pedestrian crosswalk signal at ****, across from the *****'s entrance, is now operational. Until pedestrians and motorists become familiar with the operation of the crosswalk light, the HPD officer will remain posted at ***. There are a few safety items to remember when using the pedestrian crosswalk:
In order to activate the crosswalk signal, push the button located on the crosswalk posts.
It is safe to cross the street when the crosswalk indicator light displays a solid (white) figure in the walking motion. Cross the street only when the indicator light displays the white figure. This signal indicates that it is okay to cross the street.
Always exercise caution, and make sure drivers have stopped before entering the crosswalk.
A blinking (red) hand on the indicator light signals that pedestrians who are already in the cross walk should hurry to the other side of the street. If you have not started to cross the street when the blinking hand is displayed, do not enter the crosswalk. Instead, stop and push the button on the post. Wait for the indicator light (walking figure) to signal that it is okay to walk.
The solid (red) hand indicator light means do not cross the street. When the solid hand light is on, cars on Hidalgo have the green light and right-of-way.
