I still feel that she is a little out of touch and caters mostly to New Englanders, but I find myself inspired by her craft projects and perfect cakes. I recently saw an episode where she made dog clean-up bags (the kind you take on a walk for your dog's deposits) by ironing three sheets of trimmed plastic grocery bag together and installing a grommet at the top. You then place the disposable bags inside. Personally I don't know why one would go to so much trouble ... but it was entertaining.
Since watching her show again I have noticed I have been baking more, buying flowers to adorn my kitchen counter, and I'm even thinking that I would like to grow my own veggies. And though I have no interest in taking care of chickens, I think it would be pretty cool to have fresh eggs every morning - and I don't even like eggs! I'm telling you, it's the Martha Vortex; resistance is futile.
Ooh, today's show will be all about yarn! I can't wait!
