September 2016

Yes, September is here.  I knew it had to come but I wasn't in any hurry for it.  I love spring and summer and hate to see it end. Every year I hope to do so much and get so much accomplished in the spring and summer months.  How does life get in the way? I probably don't make good use of my time.  To much reading books on dyeing, fiber art and photography perhaps, instead of DOING!

Fall is a wonderful season and I'll be taking more pictures of our beautiful fall foliage and gathering leaves for dye printing scarves and fabric.

I'm learning more and more about natural dyeing and how to print with botanicals.  One of my favorite sites is a facebook page called, "Printing Botanicals".  I joined last week and I've already learned so much.  It's made up of wonderful people who are willing to share their experiments in dyeing with all of us.  Now instead of reading books, I'm checking out their facebook page every day to see what's new.  I have to get back to the ocean soon to get some sea water to dye with, I've heard it's wonderful.  We'll have to wait and see.

We still have wonderful warm weather but the days are getting shorter with the sun setting at 7:30 pm now.  I don't like that part of the season.  I want daylight!!

Granddaughters are off to their second year of college, one grandson is working full time and the youngest is starting his sophomore year of high school.  I wish them all a successful and fun year!!

Ronnie and I have had a successful summer at the craft & farmer's market and the fairs we have participated in.
My children are well and had an enjoyable summer as did my grandchildren.  My brother Sid and sister Dot enjoyed time on the MS Mt. Washington with me.  My family and friends are dear to me and I'm very thankful for every one of them!  On to the next season.

Remember to Play a Little Every Day!
Peace, Diane
