|Squash in the hedge|
Autumn is my favourite season, mellow and bright. Still warm at the moment, still a lot of colour in the garden. We have began harvesting squash, a good year for all our vegetables, I have frozen pounds of beans, and during the year have also harvested potatoes, onions, garlic and salad crops. We are still harvesting carrots, beetroots. winter salad leaves mooli and have just began to dig the parsnips.

This was the first batch to go in the bath. Cotton cloth, silk thread and woollen yarn. I was amazed at the difference in colour between the wool and the other fibres. I can't wear wool but am tempted to dye some wool scarves as gifts for winter.
I have done a few more yarns but will show them another time.
Hoping to dye a blouse for my Mum over the weekend.
