Lots of Autumny crafting to share, and generally me loving Autumn and Autumny things. :) I hear it's meant to be another year for early snow, so I'm getting in LOTS of this lovely season in a short space of time just in case!
Acorn cup floating candles. We stood the caps in modelling clay to keep them upright. Pouring was a bit tricky, not one for tinies especially with such small acorn caps! We want to find some bigger ones for next time.
Leafy garland, easy sewing in lovely colours. So effective for such little work.
Autumn coloured giant window star, made by Jenna and I one afternoon.
Bread, sitting in the sun, in the rainbow light from a crystal hung in my kitchen window.
More of Jenna's handwork, a broach she made for a friend. So sweet! Isn't her stitching neat now?
Night time walks, wrapped up warm, "look, snails!"
Damson and apple jelly. Mmmm...
A bit on the giant side, because neither of us are very experienced needle felters, but yet more Jenna handwork - the orange acorn. I couldn't find any brown wool, and she got tired of it after a while, so it will probably be one to come back to if we want it smaller and more tightly felted!
Wax dipped leaves, made with Aoife after school one day.
More leaves, a stitched journal, sent for the mama love swap.
Acorn collecting on the park.
We have had such an odd couple of weeks. I'm still feeling really well, and not so panicky-rushed, but gosh I do sometimes wonder if I will ever get to that lull, some kind of steady place where I can catch my breath! I'm burying myself in crafting, keeping up with the children where possible, and taking as much time for journalling and locking myself in the bathroom as I dare. In some ways, that side of things is only going to get worse - for the best of reasons - as Martin finally has a job. :)
