Not a lot happening on the crafting front - just been messing about with an old bag I found at the carboot, putting a few toadstools and whatnot on it.
I just find I have to do something with my hands as I sit watching TV.
Taking advantage of the sunny weather I have been drying herbs for the winter, I find I use them quite a lot, and I didn't do enough last winter, so 'trying to do better' this!
This is some sage I hung up a week or two ago - it doesn't take long to dry. I just hang it from the ceiling in the conservatory bit - along with all the other junk!
Had to show you these delightfully PINK PINK, gloves and secateurs (they were a Birthday present - from people who know me Soooooo well!!) Ideal for clean cutting my herbs.
I thought I would dry some Lemon Balm (Mellissa) - I drink a lot of tea made from the fresh leaves in the summer - so refreshing (Properties - calming and helps the digestive system), so dried leaves might just be the thing during a cold wet winter!
To days haul Golden Morjoram, Oregano, Lemon Balm, and comfrey - I make a salve from the comfrey to help heal cuts, bruises and fractures (I used it twice a day, every day on my broken ankle, and it mended remarkably quickly - and well) - the country name for comfrey is Knitbone - they knew their stuff those old wise women!
