Fall WONDEFUL, BEAUTIFUL Fall,
My favorite season !!!
Not only is the weather more enjoyable I love all that fall brings. Beautiful Colors, decorations, scarecrows, crows, pumpkins, mums and leaves. All the wonderful elements of nature. Another great thing fall brings is pumpkin pie, hot tea and tasty soups and stews….mmmmm.
After my last harvest of lemon balm my harvest basket has now been put to rest for the winter along with all the lawn furniture. At this time of year I start thinking of relaxing myself. I start gathering my winter supplies for warm winter teas and also my winter Art projects.
Since there are no local stained glass suppliers (I don’t like the 55+ miles drive through snow and ice to get my supplies) I always try to get a stash of supplies in my studio for winter projects. Guess I’m kind of like a squire. When the snow starts flying I want to be ready to work away in my studio or curl up in front of the fireplace with a hot cup of tea…LOL…...
My “To Do” list has already been started for winter project and things I hope to achieve this winter. On this years list I’m really going to try getting a few stained glass pieces made for our home ! Have a piece for our dining room doorway that’s been in the works and on my work bench for several years. Hope to get it finished along with a piece for a double doorway into the hall, at least one window valance for our breakfast room but if all goes well I’ll get 4 done !!! Guess I always aim High…LOL…
On my list also is to do some sewing and needle work which I haven’t done in quite some time. I’ve already started a crochet project so I’m off to a good start. Thank God I have a cousin who makes baskets !!! Thanks to her and the many baskets she’s sent me I have several to fill with supplies and projects. Making it easy to grab a basket and switch projects quickly.
One needle project I hope to work on this winter is a Colonial art that dates back to the 1800’s, I love ALL things vintage !!!! I’ve been researching and gathering supplies for over a year now. I’m really looking forward to getting started on this one. More on this project later as I get more into it.
