Today I finished the sea in the rug.  I had hooked a lobster but it looked like a rabbit instead.  I remembered that my Mom had a lobster pin and she had given it to me.  Its perfect.  I plan to finish the house and lighthouse and then think about the sky.  The sky is another challenge.











The sea was done with old skirts, roving  some handspun yarn and wool fabric.


For the first time in many years I will not be in Ireland for Thanksgiving. I will miss everything about the trip.  Ireland is the place in the world that I love most.  Its home to me even though I wasn’t born there.  Instead Cindy and I are going to visit my Mom in Florida.  Our trip to Ireland will wait until March when Cindy has a week off from school.  My Mom will be surprised as she isn’t expecting anyone until Christmas. I can’t wait to see her.


Yesterday I picked Comfrey and today I started a batch of salve.  I don’t have many jars left , sold a lot at the fall shows.   I will bring it upstairs to the south bedroom and put it near the sunny window.    There it will sit for a few months.










Tonight there is definitely a chill in the air with a frost expected.  The cats know where to keep warm.

That is Sammy at the far end Willie in the middle and Shorty next.


Thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Im always impressed when people use other fibers in making rugs, I have yet to completely master wool! What ailments would the salve be for, wounds? So interesting. Nice job on the door quilt by the way I hope it makes your home nice and cozy!
