YAY! Did my year spell on NYE this year.
Yep. That's what I am planning to see in the following year. I'm stoked. :-D
We have made one full turn here at the Little House in the 'Hood. I thought it would be fun to see what it looks like year 'round.
The herb bed in spring:
The herb bed in summer:
The herb bed in winter:
Now wasn't that fun? You can see why I might be yearning for fairer weather.
I mentioned previously that I was a flurry of activity during November and December, attempting to finish some craft products I was giving as gifts.
My first Waldorf Doll. I gave this to Ember for Solstice.
Reusable produce and/or bulk bags:
Tiny felted animals:
More felted items:
Finally finished a quilt that was 10 years in the making:
(A girl gets sidetracked, yo.)
Cloth Moon Pads:
Highly recommend these. Washable, resuable, soft, wonderful, safe.
Fabric colored thumbtacks. These were really simple, and they are very cute.
I made a few sets of these:
I was lucky enough to get to participate in Wasatch Commons Annual Holiday Bazaar. I did a lot of trades for holiday gifts and was excited to share some of my own creations.
Mark made Sunny Buns again this year. MMMMMM.... Decadently so.
We had some other cool occurances happen 'round the house.
Is this one squash or two?
This was definitely one egg... Well, until I opened it:
All in all, it's been a good year. I look forward to at least one more summer here. I think Mark and I agreed that Northern California calls us.
I'm not going to just up and head off to California. I am going to stay for just one more harvest. It does give us time to decide where we are going and what we will do. I vote intentional community, he wants to have a traditional job at first. I guess we will see what comes up. Depending on what kind of situation we find out there, we might be selling a "ready made" homestead package: goat, bees, chickens, quail. Although I am not opposed, as you can imagine, to taking my farm with me. ;-)
