Time is going so fast! It’s been a couple weeks since my last post. My Easy and Fun Silk Scarf Dyeing Class last Saturday was so much fun. Everyone went home with two beautiful scarves.
This is my last class at Scattered Art. Dolly will be closing her shop in December. I sure have enjoyed teaching there, and I know the community will miss her creative place.
For our book club this week I made grandma’s pumpkin pie, but added some pie crust leaves to decorate it a bit.
The past two Wednesdays I’ve attended Connie’s stitching class at one of our local libraries. In the first class we printed our canvas fabric. I did a bit more at home and then sewed the pages together so my stitch “book” was ready for this week’s class. I even made a faux binding.
Here are some of the inside pages:
And the front.
And a closeup of some stitches.
Needless to say, I didn’t get much done in the class. We are talking about having a monthly group where we can stitch and visit. That sure would help me get this book finished!
The trees and shrubs really started to turn this past week. I love looking outside our front window to the trees across the street.
I just can’t get over the lovely Nandina.
And I did finish my orange rope bowl. I started it quite awhile ago, and then got side tracked when I was making those purses. I ice dyed the rope this time instead of the regular dyeing I did with the other bowls.
This was a much bigger bowl than I’ve made using a little heavier rope.
That’s what has been going on here. I’m off to finish cleaning out the asparagus patch. I’ve spent two sessions so far, and will probably need a couple more before the entire area is completed.
Have a great weekend!
And let me add the pumpkin pie turned out great!
The color on your rope bowl is heavenly! So beautiful. Looks like you’ve been keeping busy.
Sherrie, Thanks! You know I don’t feel like I’m doing anything, but I guess I am!! Thanks for dropping by.
Love the colors of your bowl. Would you care to tell us which procion dyes you used? I’m especially interested in how you achieved such full coloring and those green highlights.

That bowl is a work of art! Love it.
Luann, Thanks. I used Orange Sorbet and Turquoise. I wasn’t happy with the first ice dye so over ice dyed it with the Orange Sorbet. I lost a lot of the turquoise, but like the end result.
I belong to a Facebook group about native plants. These people are adamant that nandina is a dangerous plant and no one should have it. The berries are poisonous to birds. You could look that up to be sure.
Lee, I had no idea. We have noticed that the birds do not eat the berries. We feed them all winter long. We are both master gardeners, but had our landscapers choose some of the plants. Thanks for the heads up. We’ll need to give them some thought.
