Saturday morning up and out I go into the yard gathering flowers for a table arrangement. Usually we're camping and I use my father's old minnow bucket (with a jar inside to hold the water), this year were home but I use the bucket filled with old vacation memories.
After collecting patriotic fabrics for years finally in 2000 I made this crazy quilt flag table cloth.
I don't remember the name of the patterns maker. It was simple method for crazy quilting and a lot of fun.
Last evening I went out to see what's ready to pick for weaving.
The rabbits have been terrible this year eating almost all of my dye plants. I'm very, very upset. My chocolate cosmos flowers that I spent 3 years looking for and finally finding seeds on line were coming up beautifully until Peter rabbit and his family ate almost all of them and other dye plants one night.
I do have a lot of sweet peas and some dyers chamomile that were ready to weave.
A flower dyed wool strip completes this holiday weaving.
