At summers end I took all the mustard stems that had grown out and gone to seed and wrapped them together to create a wreath. It was super easy. By now it's dried out completely and turned a straw color.
Share your ideas please!!

PLASTIC BAG FUSING
Layer plastic bags upto 4 - 5 between parchment paper. With an iron on a low heat setting iron over the paper. The plastic will begin to fuse together.
I created a pillow with my fused sheets of plastic. Get creative by cutting out different shapes and sewing them together. Fill with more plastic bags or polyfil. These are great for an outdoor space, like a deck or workshop (Mine is on a pallet bench I made, which is in my barn/workshop)

Summer and fall have passed and winter has found us.
Here in central New York we are covered in snow.
Snow makes everything pretty!!
Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year. He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound's the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark, and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
