This is a great project for children and adults. This is unfinished wood with no varnish or coating added.
One of my passions is spinning fiber and than creating something wonderful out of the resulting yarn. This shawl is one of my favorites. I used the wool of one of my favorite lambs who has no passed away. His fleece was always one of our finest and one I truly loved spending time spinning it up.
With this shawl I used a very Victorian looking crochet stitch and truly love how graceful it is. I kept the wool in its natural color which is a soft off white so that it can be worn with anything.
Shawls make a great cozy wrap for cool winter nights at home or out on the town. This shawl can be purchased at Lil Acres Farm on Etsy
I received my First Gardening Catalog of the Year !
It's that time again. Time to dream of warmer weather and planning this years garden.
Every year I love to add a new veggie I would not usually grow.
I think this year I will try Artichokes, they don't usually do very well in my area, but I'm going to give them a try anyway.
I have loved gardening since I was a child. My parents always had a small veggie and flower garden and I have continued that with my children and grand kids.
I have 10 acres to plant whatever I want. Not really, 7 of it is alfalfa / grass mix for livestock, 2 of it is the house, holding pens, sheds and a barn, leaving me with about 1 acre for flowers, trees and veggies.
The last few years I have only used 4 raised beds for veggies and spread perennial flowers, bushes and shrubs everywhere else.
I'm no expert in gardening, although I have been doing it for years, I've read several good books throughout the years, but I guess my mind just doesn't want to retain all that information. I have to go back to my books every year to help me decide how to lay out my raised beds for the season. I love watching everything grow.
I am a big fan of Square Foot Gardening, they have a great book available and lots of information on their website. I have had a lot of success following their guidelines for raised bed design and planting.
Well, time to dream away in my gardening catalog!
