RAIN TO SNOW FLURRIES

IMG_1787

It went from rain to flurries this morning with a dusting on the ground and a few still coming down.  I need to get the bulbs in sometime today.  Still lots of work to do outside, I will have the boys do some of while they are here.  I want the little dog house brought near the barn as I will bring it in.  The caravan needs to be brought into my sons barn for the winter.  Its getting old and needs more protection. Oh well they will get done in time.

CRAFTS OF COLRAIN

TOMORROW starts the 2 day event, I will be ready, in a much better situation than last year.  I have made a bittersweet swag , my friend Susan told me about this and it really came out nice, I put the lights on last night.

 With pumpkins and pinecones and sweet annie drying on the porch it will be welcoming for customers. I am lookingforward to it.

NEEDLE FELTING

I had a wonderful time last night at one of the SHEEP AND SHAWL’S classes.  Check out their web site for many more fun and interesting classes and lots of knitting  time at the store  www.sheepandshawl.com.  I had needle felted many years ago but my daughter CIndy bought me a fantastic book on it my interest was peaked again.

I think that I would have liked to have felted the leaf a little more and the acorn needs to be a bit smaller or the cap a bit larger, but all in all for my first time doing the both of these I think they came out good.  I will be out in the back yard looking for more caps.  I hope to find some double ones.These were fun and easy to make.  The wool is some of mine carried at the shop.  Thanks Deb for offering this class and also to Liz for having wonderful classes at her shop.

DROP SPINDLE CLASS AT SHEEP AND SHAWL

I am teaching a drop spindle class at Sheep and Shawl on Sunday, November 17th and the 24th.  If you have every wanted to spin but didn’t want the expense of a spinning wheel this is your opportunity to learn.  Hope to see you there.

Many thanks for reading my blog on this flurrying  morning.  I hope you have a wonderful day.  Carole and Minnie
