Cute as a Button?

Well, a rather naughty one in this case. I made it for a colleague of mine - he asked for it!
By that I don't mean that he deserves an insult, but that he actually wanted one like that after seeing a similar one.



It's a simple cross stitched self covering button that was so quick to make. I'm planning on making more four letter word buttons as well as smaller ones with single letters to spell out more insults.

Harvest Time

Over the course of the past week the remaining fields on the farm we live have been harvested.


Everyone was very busy, including the bees trying to get the last pollen before the winter.


So I thought I'd make a corn wreath to celebrate the harvest activities.




I gave the finished wreath to my chickens. They were a little sceptical at first ...


... but soon discovered how tasty it was, ...


... leaving nothing but bare stalks and straw.
