This and That

Fall is finally here (although the temperatures are still above normal) and another grandson has discovered how beautiful my mums are.

Here's a close up of the yarn my daugher spun for the Sweepstakes Prize at the Tulsa State Fair.  She told me that the "stuff" she started with was quite ugly and greasy. (I know "stuff" is not the correct word but I'm not a spinner so I don't remember the right terminology).  She used her spinning wheel to spin it into something beautiful.  She added metalic threads and tiny, shiny beads.

This is another piece she won a prize on.  It's a collar, shawl type of thing.  The next picture shows it opened up.



And here are the latest of my applique blocks.  Right now I'm working on the last two and then it's on to the border.

The mums were planted 3 or 4 years ago and come back even prettier each year (with a few treatments of Miracle Grow in the summer).

Yes, Baby Wesley is growing up!
