Crafting On :: Allsorts

We've been creating a lot of things here lately, so here they are, all at once.

We pulled most of the onions from the garden, Roan helped clean them, and then I strung them.
I used the instructions from All Year Round and it was very simple.
You do need very strong string!  I doubled mine after the first one broke.


Sewing is decidedly on hold for awhile as we focus on getting settled into schooldays.
I did hand sew two doll pillows for the children from fabric I found in my scrap box.

Robin's Pillow

This is flannel from seven or eight years ago that I bought when I made maps in Wythe County. 

Marian's Pillow

I decluttered my scrap box, too, cutting the fabric quantity in half.
It felt so nice and was definitely a trip through the memories of old sewing projects.

Willow's Fairy House

The children have been working on fairy houses and they spent part of their first day on this.
We've gotten a lot of mums on clearance and they provided many pretty blooms.

Roan's Fairy House

I'm making a beret for Becky out of sequined yarn she chose.
This is obviously a departure from my usual worsted wool.

Sequin Beret

And here's a small pie made by Willow using scraps from an apple pie we made yesterday.
I'd share a picture of it, but a certain little girl got in it and "Laureled" it while I was being silly with the bigger ones.
Still tasty, though not very pretty.

Your onions look very impressive and the sequins are going to make a fabulous beret, I can just imagine it glittering on a frosty morning walk!

Thank you! The beret would be very pretty on a frosty day.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
