It's fall already.

It's here.  Summer is gone and fall is here.  The blustery winds and rain have arrived after an unusually good summer.  I'm never prepared, really.  There is always so much more that I wanted to get done this summer.  Every year it's like that.  But it's over in a blink of an eye.  Now we can light candles in the evenings again and curl up on the sofa listening to the winds howl.  Oh, well.  There is something cozy about that too.

I bought the perfect thing for fall.  I found this rya (also called smyrna) rug at the Good Shepherd (our local junk store).  It's owner had only just started it and obviously put it away and given up on it.  I love the colours, reds, yellows and oranges with purples, pinks, browns and blacks.  And it came complete with all the yarns, the pattern and colour swatches.  I only paid 15$ for it and now I'm all set for fall.  I try to do one line in an evening.  It's very calming and I don't have to remember anything.  It's numbered and I just have to change the colours.  I have no idea where I'm going to put it when I'm done, but that doesn't matter in the least.  I have a piece of handiwork that will entertain me in the coming winter months and serve as a warm blanket while I work on it.

Not that I have no projects going.  I'm still cleaning my eiderdown and there is a long way to go.  I'm also dyeing yarn regularly, right now I have some Dyers Chamomile in the pot.  But I haven't made soap in the longest time and I'm starting to miss that.  So much so, that I'm even beginning to get ideas for new soaps to make.  I guess I just might write a post about soapmaking soon.


  1. I am ready for you to make more soap too. I love all the muted colors you use. Love the colors in your pic as well. your home must be wonderful

  2. Thank you Donna, I think it's about time I got started again :)

  3. It is a cleansing agent made from the salts of vegetable or animal fats. In some countries, the television serials are known as soap operas because they are mainly sponsored by soap ads! Soaps are two kinds, washing soaps and bathing soap.
