Well, there are so many different things rattling away in my head today, the news just keeps giving me post idea’s..
If you live in Ontario regardless of what your choice is, please get out and vote today!
So with the colder mornings, my urge to knit has increased, christmas is coming, thankfully I have three almost finished projects that I have been slowly working on over the summer, While I can knit for a while in summer, the garden and the heat slow me down greatly, however with fall coming in, I am picking up the needles again daily.
I spent a little time visiting with a friend, and left with some amazing idea’s on two new projects for winter knitting, and one of the projects is for me, I so rarely do that, I tend to knit for others raither then myself.
I have been working on my felting skills, and am slowly getting better all the time, I have a winter project to self tan a wool sheepskin rug or two, not just working with the hides but working to keep them whole.
I also have been able to get some truly lovely birch bark peelings to go with my procupine needle work for a small gift box, as well as having gotten the beads in the colors I want (thank you Farmer T, who buys them in bulk and just gave me the little bit I needed) for my earings projects.
I was able to pick up materal on a amazing sale to make new heavy quilt curtains for the living room, and so sewing them is a planned coming project, it will make such a difference in regards to keeping the cold out and the heat in.
The only other craft project I have planned for this winter is to make homemade hankies and to do a few little sewing projects, I need a new big apron with lots of pockets and maybe a new table cloth or two, I have a tote or two of older clothes that need to be pulled apart and cut into squares and then I need to pull out my box with squares and have a look to see just how many I have, I will put the blue jeans patches into a different pile for later use.
So with the darker days, the colder, slower days coming in the near future, are you figuring out what your winter projects will be? Care to share what you got planned?
