Goodbye Fall! Welcome Winter Holidays!

and another set!
Just pulled these from a tree and took a quick shot before putting them in the "press" to dry. Definitely preserving these amazing beauties with Mod Podge.
I have never seen leaves do this before. Do I have any crafty biologists reading who might share why the pigments migrated into pools of color like this?
My apologies for a little earlier than usual Holiday header. My fantastic web master, who is also my wonderful daughter who takes excellent care of her tech-challenged mother, is very busy sharing a few days with Rachel in Austin and then a gig to demo Clover's newest Kanzashi templates.
So we moved on to the holiday look here on Gingerbread Snowflakes just a few days early!
We just finished up our annual photo fun at the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island - a quick shot of our assistant and good friend, Leona, to show you a little part of our "set-up". Leona does all the printing for us on the busiest weekends. We could not do it without her!
The quiet moments on the less busy weekends were spent knitting this pretty little cowl. It just seemed appropriate to knit with the yarn that I dyed last fall using purple Indian corn husks grown at the Pumpkin Patch.
I love how it turned out. The pattern is modified from one I purchased from Valley Yarns and the yarn started out as Cascade 220 white.
I will be popping in in a couple days with an update on purchases made from crafty bloggers during October, and then the Winter Holidays officially begin November 1 with my third blogiversary giveaways!
In the meantime - Happy Halloween everyone!
