Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Basmati Bags

Megan asks "Is it wrong to buy rice you don't need because you like the cotton bag it comes packaged in?"

Take a look at her pretty basmati rice bag with two roses!

My husband buys basmati rice because he likes the rice.


I save the bags, even though our basmati bags are only coarse, strong-smelling brown burlap. When I went looking for a bag so I could take a picture, I found not one but FOUR of them. They do have a nice red zipper, about 10 inches long, and I had half-picked out the stitches holding one of the zippers. So I assume my past self was saving them for the zippers. I can't be sure, because she didn't leave me a note.

Yes, we really did eat all that rice. Basmati rice smells wonderful when it is cooking. Tastes good, too!

Has anyone else a basmati rice bag they'd like to share?

Oh, I think your burlap bags are much nicer! Cool! I would save those too - not sure what I would make with them, but I would save them nonetheless.

I always buy Basmati rice. I liked the bags, but never knew what to do with them so I have always thrown them in the garbage. Now that you pointed out the zipper, I will keep them :)
