Morning gathering - some to dry and some for us. As we pack up the house for our move back to Vermont, freshly cut flowers will be the one touch of beauty we can still add inside. These are bachelor buttons. I planted them by seed in many of our gardens at the beginning and middle of May.
Sharing some hand sewn elephants today. They are made using wool felt for the body and then a bit of special fabric for the inner ears. In addition, I embroidered little hearts to either side of their back end and added a braided wool yarn tail.
If you would like to make one here is a link to the pattern.
Yesterday the humidity returned in full force so after Mike did his workshop work, I did the wood burning and packaging, we headed out to the lake. We are blessed to have Lake St. George State Park about a 12 minute drive away.
