Storm Pictures

This is some of the damage from the tornado that came through here last Thursday. This is Ohatchee, AL and it's about five miles from where we live.

We did not have any damages, but we could see the tornado on the river passing by.




this used to be houses all right in a row. You can still see the foundations.

Leftovers







With lots of leftover organic hemp, I made these little lovelies. I really like them and will be probably sad to see them go as they look so nice and friendly on my shelves in the studio. Buy them here.

Mushrooms Everywhere








I dont know why I always take pictures of mushrooms, but I do. I just like them (not eating them, yuck, just looking at them).

My peonies








Peonies smell soooooo good. I love them. I planted these in my back yard.

A planted garden










I planted onions, carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, corn, watermelons, and romaine lettuce.

It's my very first garden, so I'm not expecting much. :) My track record is not so good on growing things.

Wool



I've never worked with wool before and I received a custom order that specifically wanted wool batting. No problem.


Uh, yeah right.


Though it was as soft and fluffy as can be and I was excited to see how it would turn out. I was thinking maybe I could add wool to my product line.


Think again.


This stuff gave me such a time. It was hard to unfold, as it kept falling apart, so delicate it was. it was hard to cut, some parts were thick while others thin. It is now everywhere, all over the studio, wool dusties everywhere. I've found it going down the hall, in the living room.


Then, I stitched it all up and WOW. It made for one very puffy quilt, with quite a unique look to it. I really like it.


It's in the wash now, I'm anxious to see the very end result. Pictures to follow.


Will I do it again? Unsure.
