Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

Bike Capris Arrived in the Mail

My bike capris are here; woohoo!  I ordered them from aerotechdesigns.com
 They were one of the only places that sold plus sized padded bike capris, so I took a chance and ordered them. I only wanted one pair but one pair didn't come with free shipping, and by the time I would have paid for shipping I figured it would be a better deal to get two pairs with free shipping.
padded bike shorts, plus sized
 I had no idea that the material would feel like bathing suit material or I would not have ordered. They feel quite hot on.  I tried them on and they fit OK  but they don't breathe at all and I couldn't wait to take them off. I also hated the feel of the padding but I'm sure it will be helpful when riding.  I'll just have to use them on cooler days, when it's around 70 or 80 instead of 95-100 F, like today.
 You can see a close up of the padding. I hope it will help so that I can ride further/longer without severe pain or chafing.
 As an added bonus, they sent a cute bike keychain.  I put it up against my 1:24 scale pet shop to see scale; I think it works as a children's bike.
I think I will much prefer the gel saddle cover, as that is what I've always used, and loved, in the past.  I probably jumped the gun by ordering these, but they'll be OK in colder weather, in spring and fall I can wear them under my pants.
