After setting a week (in a plastic bag with a pail of water on top) I washed out my wool. This fabric will be the top third of my Family Tree quilt.
This is the raw silk that was wrapped up with maple leaves and rusty metal. They would make some great scarves.
Don't forget if you have any pumpkins left that you don't carve, put them away in a cold place all winter (not freezing). Next Spring bring them out, cut off the top, fill with good soil, water and place in your garden for the Summer. Hopefully, the seeds inside will grow and you will get pumpkins next Fall.
