Hello! How have you been? It's been a very busy year here in the Wonderland Woods - too much to share in one post! So just a few highlights - a little sketching, a little stitching, LOTS of gardening!
From my sketchbook. Inspired by my garden last summer that was full of sunflowers and butterflies.
I made another little picture from this design created about a year or so ago for my beekeeping friend. This one is a bit smaller, only 6 X 6". Petite. Now listed in my Etsy shop.
I hate lugging around a heavy purse at craft fairs and flea markets, so I designed this little pouch necklace to carry the essentials - a spare key to the car, a little cash, or a credit card. Also now listed in my Etsy shop.
And my latest passion - kokedama. I've been watching past episodes of Gardener's World on YouTube (we don't get it here in the States!!) and saw a segment on how to create these little Japanese style moss gardens. I've made 6 so far!! This is a little pine tree that I pulled up from alongside the driveway after a deep soaking rain one morning. The photo really doesn't do it justice.
A small portion of an army of little seedlings growing in a variety of recycled containers. Just waiting to go out into the great wide world. We can't eat yogurt fast enough to supply the demand for containers!
Spring is just around the corner, and our little cottage is bursting with seedlings - under the table, on top of the table, on every windowsill. I haven't said a word, but I'm hoping my husband decides that I might really need a greenhouse one of these days. He's pretty good at taking a hint, so we'll see!!!
