It seems summer is slowing down. Our firewood shed has been visited a few times in the last month and we have enjoyed the warmth of our fire. Our garden is producing baskets of food and we love it. I have been bottling tomatoes which will come in handy in the depth of winter. Our pumpkin crop is looking very healthy, we dined on two varieties tonight – delicious!
The making and crafting never stops around here and I have been making, for one thing, felted shoulder and carry bags. Having made them in the height of summer which was strange , I can’t wait to snugger one the colder month. The process is quite magical with a huge over-sized object becoming a well proportioned mode a transporting all the useful things we need at hand. And we know those are many!
My pets still entertain us without effort and I sometimes run to grab my camera to catch something comical or just plain cute.
I recently helped run a felted wool and bead workshop at work. It was successful and everyone went home with a beautiful piece of work to wear. There are just so many great ideas out there for us to enjoy.
I have started going to a sewing night class with a couple of textile queens and we have fun and also learn tips and processes from our great tutor which is what it’s all about I guess.
We visited the Monet exhibition in Wellington today. It was amazing to see such beautiful work – very inspiring! I recommend it to you all!
