October 1st has come and gone...






  "My wine overbrims a whole summer;"

My bowl is the sky, And I drink at my eye, 

Till I feel in the brain A Delphian pain - 

Then follow, my Caius! then follow: 

On the green of the hill 

We will drink our fill Of golden sunshine, 

Till our brains intertwine 

With the glory and grace of Apollo!

Hang a Wreath...



Mustard wreath.  



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!! 

What have you been crafting this winter? Do you have things planned for spring?  I know each time it gets a bit warmer out I'm motivated and filled with ideas to get working. 

if your not already following me please do and subscribe by e-mail if you want to see what I'm up to next.  



Have a great first day of spring!!

Time to get CREATIVE!!!

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)
