When I started my blog I thought of what to call it.. I was inspired by other bloggers to start my own and many of them had crochet as a central feature, so I named it "Teresa Kasner's Crochet". Then as I went along blogging away I realized that the title wasn't really "true" as I post more about life as usual and crochet is just one facet of my life. So, I deleted "crochet" from the title. Now I add crochet things from time to time, but it's definitely not in all of them. But I finished some booties and showed a baby blanket recently.. and yesterday while our middle child and his family were visiting I got a few more flowers done on my shawl. I'll take it today and work on it while I volunteer at Multnomah Falls. I'm using Drops Alpaca - it's so yummy!
Atropa belladonna or Atropa bella-donna, commonly known as Belladonna, Devil's Berries, Death Cherries or Deadly Nightshade, is a perennial herbaceous plant in the family Solanaceae, native to Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. The foliage and berries are extremely toxic, containing tropane alkaloids. These toxins include scopolamine and hyoscyamine which cause a bizarre delirium and hallucinations, and are also used as pharmaceutical anticholinergics. The drug atropine is derived from the plant.
Speaking of volunteers, I got this blog post done just in time to get ready to go volunteer at Multnomah Falls for the afternoon.. with my sister Denise.. and of course we have to have lunch together in the beautiful historic Lodge before we volunteer. :-)
