Challenge #208

At the moment there are seriously not enough hours in the day.

Autumn = mad, crazy times around here.

I'm canning like a woman possessed, there's tomatoes everywhere! It's almost time to begin on the apple pie filling that my daughter loves and I am contractually required to put a years supply away for her or, apparently, I am out of the family.

We're madly scrambling to get things done around the place in time for a Permaculture group tour in May - one of the big projects was to properly fix up the kids old cubby that I've been using as a potting shed over the past year. By the end of the week it will have shelves and wall hooks and big windows and doors that closes. It will definitely be my garden happy spot.

We've got some cool Autumn festivals that I just have to go visit - today I was at Cloudehill an amazing garden that's part of the Diggers Club (heritage seed savers/garden club that I'm a member of) of course,  I couldn't help but buy a stack of seeds and plants - just doing my bit, you know? (well that's what I tell John, anyway).

Tomorrow we attend a Biodynamic field day as part of the BD course we're doing.

I've got lots of gardening to get done over the next few weeks, compost heaps to build so that everything is ready for the Winter wind down. Whew. I'm feeling tired already.

So, I did get a chance to take a peek at the challenge this week, which was a duo tangle using Cubine and Pokeroot, and this idea came right to mind, so I was compelled to put it down on paper:

ribbon and floral using cubing and pokeroot tangle patterns

I'm going to apologise in advance for not getting around to visit any challenge blogs this week. I'm hoping once Winter is here things will settle down and I'll be able to get more involved again.

Have a great weekend!

  4. It's so funny to read that you have to prepare your garden for winter!
    It's nearly spring where I live, the first flowers are out and we all are waiting for some nice sunshine *grin*

    Your tile reminds me of these flowers and a nice ribbon around it. I like it very much!

  10. I am always in awe of the whimsy that you create with...whoa! It always makes me pause and wonder about the process that goes through people's minds when they "see" something and then put it onto paper with art tools. Beautiful work!

  14. sounds as though you have your hands full! We were members of the Diggers club years back. Love their heritage seeds - would love to have an opportunity to visit them at some stage, but for now will sigh and look at their website (thanks for including :)) Love the easyflow pattern that you did of the pokeroot and cubine tangles - your tangles almost always look like native plants. Take care, Tracy
