August Making and Doing

Have you noticed the light changing in the evenings?  

Every day, the sun is setting a little earlier. Such slow and subtle change, but so different than just a month ago.

Our days have been full of making and doing. Daniel started his mushroom logs, so in two years we will have shiitake mushrooms to enjoy!

Essentially, Daniel drilled holes into a log, then the plugs with the mushroom spores were pounded in, and then covered with wax.

Daniel had extra help, as you can see.  

With a little time to knit here and there, I made these little gnomes for the boys to enjoy.


Tell me, what are you making and doing these days?
