Sock yarn one-skein wonders by edited by Judith Durant — So often I find myself with just one skein of a gorgeous yarn. It can be hard to know what to do with it, and running short just shy of completing a project is not a place I want to be. I also love sock yarn, but I'm not a sock-knitter, so I love these projects that allow me to use that gorgeous fiber in other ways. I have added many of these items to my queue!
Success with small-space gardening by Graham Clarke — Many people would like to have a garden, but find that they are limited by a lack of space.

This book show how to design for whatever space you have available, using clever and unusual but easily executed techniques.

Felt me a smile-- for you by Toyoko Sugiwaka — There have been a lot of books about how to make cute stuff lately, and this one rises to the top for its unique approach. The first section includes photographs of the creations - vignettes of each object in its own little world or scene. Later in the workshop section, there are detailed instructions (with step by step photographs) so that you can create your own. Just flipping through this book will make you smile.
LB's at it again! While it was snowy and freezing here in Michigan, LB went to sunny, warm Key West, Florida with Miss Marianne! LB must stand for Lucky Bear! There are lots of fun things to see in Key West — Lighthouses, Libraries, Post Offices, Fish, Butterflies and Cats! And you can eat lots of Key Lime Pie! One of the neatest things LB and Marianne did is they went to the most southern point of the whole United States and got their picture taken. You can almost see Cuba from there! Key West is also where Ernest Hemingway lived. Ernest Hemingway is an author who wrote books for grown ups. Some of his books take place in Michigan, because he lived here for awhile too. Then he moved to Key West and ate lots of pie and owned lots of cats. Make sure you check out all the pictures from LB's trip on Flickr! It sure sounds like he had fun! Until next time…
Canton is undertaking a Five Year Consolidated Planning process to determine the strategic goals for the Township’s housing and community development needs and how to best use its resources to address those needs. In addition, a portion of the planning process will include an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) so that important fair housing programs and policies can be reviewed. All of this information will be used to complete plans mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The most vital component of this planning process is the feedback provided by residents regarding the Township’s fair housing programs, affordable housing needs, homeless and special housing needs, and other non-housing community development needs. Below are two links to brief online surveys for you to record your input. All responses will be anonymous.
