Our Fairy Welcomes Autumn

Just in time for our Annual Pumpkin Carving party, Fairy received her Earth in Autumn leaf mask from Mythical Designs. It is beyond lovely, and seems to magically transform our Fairy girl into a sprite of the season.

Today we will be busily prepping for our autumn party, which like most celebrations includes baking, oh so much baking, cleaning, moving furniture around to accommodate everyone, stacking logs by the bonfire, and for the first time setting up disco style lighting for an outdoor dance party. More than likely, as the weather around here is already dipping below freezing, this will be one of our last weekends spent mostly outdoors. Soon winter will be upon us and in the weeks ahead we will be turning to our indoor activities. Tomorrow though, we will celebrate the fall with friends, hot cider, good food, fresh air, a bonfire, and cold cheeks.

Happy Harvest!

The Gift of Caring (For)

Many years ago I gave my friend some mittens for Christmas. I still remember them. I used the same yarn for both mittens, but knit different patterns into each so they were mismatched. They were whimsical and beautiful. My friend loved them. About a month later I got a teary phone call from her. She had thrown them in the washer and dryer. Now, they were felted into unwearable munchkin sized mitts. When given her the mittens, I had forgotten to tell her how to care for them. Lesson learned. Now, whenever I make something for someone else, I always include care instructions. Also, if the item has buttons, I make sure to give them a couple extra and I even give them some extra yarn, in case a repair needs to be made in the future. I've never had to use the yarn to make repairs for someone, but I sleep better at night knowing they have it if I need it.

This weekend is my daughter-in-law's, Raewyn's, baby shower. Unfortunately, I can't make it, but my gifts can :) A while ago I shared a Stroller Blanket I was making...Read more

Drawing Mushrooms

Although we like to draw by studying our nature finds, I find it helpful to have the kids watch some "how to draw" videos and tutorials when we approach a new subject. When we are doing a nature study we are helping to train the eye to see shapes, colors, and other details. When we use "how to" drawing lessons we are helping to train the hand and learn a few tricks for creating forms and shading in order to replicate what we see.

Here are a few videos on how to draw mushrooms to get you started.

The first video is a quick and easy way to draw a mushroom. The examples above are the images my kids produced following this video. Practicing it a few times will help you get familiar with the basic form of a mushroom.

 

This is a long but worth while video that explains some parts of the mushroom as well as gives helpful tips for drawing, coloring, and shading mushrooms. Unfortunately some of the projection images are hard to see but the information is great. You might...Read more

Woolies ~ Sara

Woolies combines my passion for knitting and my love of animals. Still a child at heart, I delight in the magic and joy that small animals bring to us. The comfort and warmth that a lovey portrays....I still have a few of my stuffed animals from my childhood long ago. They are cherished possessions.

We have 11 animals currently on our little ranch - 2 horses, 1 wild pony, 4 dogs, 3 cats and a desert tortoise, many of them rescued animals....Read more
