I am hoping to make some more books but maybe on Khadi paper which I really like. Have had lots of fun doing these, especially making the stamps. Maybe I will have a finished version some time next year to share.

Life seems to have been a bit crazy recently but I have found time to have a bit of fun. I have been doing an online course with Roxanne Evans Stout called "A Book of Trees" which is slowly coming together. Have been having fun, getting very sticky and learning new techniques.
I don't think I will get much more done before Christmas but have now done the front cover, not shown here.
I have also dyed with avocado stones, still more brown than pink, waiting to be washed.

|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.
