Last Minute Embroidery

I decided to do a little Thanksgiving embroidery, but haven't actually started stitching yet. Need to get to work! Thanksgiving is a week away!

Popcorn Kernels

I'm slowly removing the popcorn kernels from the cobs. Does anybody want to help? There is a lot of work left and you can even pull out the stray silks.

The Crochet is Finished

Over the weekend my crochet circle was finally the size of my pillow, but I was nearly out of yarn so instead of purchasing another skein of the yarn I decided to try to do a circular weaving on the other side of the pillow.

I'm not really sure how I want it to look and I'm considering purchasing some more yarn (which totally defeats the purpose of me switching to weaving) because my stash yarns aren't the colors I think I want. Do you have any weaving tips or suggestions?

Popcorns and Rhubarb

My garden clean up is mostly complete! (I forgot to add my sunflower stalks to my compost pile; somehow I overlooked them even though are a lot of them and they are right next to the compost pile.) I've finally filled the latest raised bed with soil, divided my rhubarb and moved them into said raised bed, and harvested my glass gem popcorn (it's so pretty)!





pretty kernels. ears. giant rhubarb rhizome. forgotten sunflower.

I do need to get back outside to compost the sunflowers then plant garlic and some flower bulbs. The windows for the cold frame are still in storage, I'm not sure if I want to grow anything right now or wait a few months and use it for seed starting. Is it too early to begin planning my garden for next spring?

crochet progress

It feels like I'm moving along very slowly in my crochet project, but I realized I'm nearly halfway done! The plan is to devote a lot more time to crochet over the next few days to finish this thing! Check back Thursday to see if I have or if there is another photo filler post.
