It was all gray this morning, as you can see from my picture. I love getting up in the early morning, just as it is getting light, make a cup of tea and enjoy the views from my picture windows. The tide is in this morning and I could barely see the water. Leavers are everywhere. All my walkways are covered in red and yellow. We have a forty foot white birch that is raining us with golden leaves, it feels like it is snowing. I am busy baking today for a bake sale for my sister tomorrow. I love days like this.
I have a new magazine to tell you about, if you have not heard. Living Crafts,it is wonderful. Living Crafts is based on Waldorf principles (read below). I love their approach to hands-on crafts and using natural things. Although i still love my glitter ;-) While this magazine has handi-crafts for children, there was plenty for adults too. There is a knitted smock top I am dying to make, beeswax snails. edible dye painted plates. And you have to see the knitted farm. Oh my gosh there is no words to describe. Well I am going to have to adopt some baby so I can make these. It is very inspiring and there is a free crochet crown pattern. So please check it out.
