Friday with a storm coming in the Lake was kicking up the waves.
Down I went to quilt and enjoy. The paddle boarders were out,
In our area parts of the Lake you can park so close the waves splash up on you car. With the windows open you feel like your in a boat!
With the Full Harvest moon that night, I brought along my table runner (I started last year) and began appliqueing on the wool moon and pumpkins.
After the Mississippi I wove in The Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic with sea shells we picked up while vacationing there. Next is the Pacific with driftwood from a tiny spit of land jutting out into the Pacific. A wonderful little village called Homer, (Alaska) resides there.
The next weaving will be a sunset or sunrise depending on your location to the water!
It's time to harvest here before the first frost comes. I cut back some of my herbs to make herbal salt for the winter. Simple process:
chop up your favorite herbs in a bowl,
Pour on a cookie sheet, I cover mine with foil first. Put in a 180 degree oven for a couple of hours, every once in awhile stirring. When the herbs are dry, let mixture cool.
