mending wednesday: a cozy collar


Mending Wednesday is back! 
   
My recent projects have been kind of heavy-duty, so for a change I've been working on something quiet and ladylike and not requiring an air compressor. My original intent was to make a scallop-edged tea towel, but somewhere along the line this cozy little collar took shape instead.
    
Loving my GIANT cone of Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn.

Pretty button from the button jar.

still life with m and pumpkin patch


Fall break destination: Starlight, IN.  

With piles of grading and sundry home projects underway, M and I still managed a little time out of town.  We took an evening drive across the river to Huber's farm for a caramel apple, a stroll through the pumpkin patch and a sunset picnic with a bottle of Huber's blush. Who's a country girl? This girl.

ficus braiding, pt. 2


Remember Mr. Moony?  He's faring pretty well these days under his new regimen of prune, braid, tie, repeat. With four trunks instead of three, this little guy is not so much braided as square-woven like one of those nylon lanyards from elementary school.  Friendship bracelet ficus.
