Fall/Pre-winter has arrived. It was a cold, rainy, and windy weekend here in the Philadelphia area.
Over the last few weeks I've been preparing myself for this.
The last and tallest sunflowers have bloomed and are about finished. Here they are peaking up over the top of the first floor roof.
It is lovely to see them in the morning. The bright yellow is so happy.
The last bouquet of sunflowers for the kitchen was picked,
The cool weather also makes me want to get into the kitchen.
I discovered this amazing recipe for Cauliflower Cake. Delicious!
After all of my chores were finished, I decided to do something I've been wanting to do for a while, sit down with my book, Headbands: How to Work Them, and try to make them all. While I'm not particularly interested in the first few - I decided - if I'm going to do this, I'm going to do it right. I'm going to do all of them.
For the first one, the bead is on the front of the headband, towards the foredge of the book.
My workspace. I made a very small text block, only one sewing station. These are the off cuts of another book. Really I just need the spine to be wide enough to get some good practice on the headband. The rest of the book is irrelevant (so far).
It will be a while before the next one. I need to make the text blocks first.
