See what I do in the basement late at night

After the last of my spinning students left Friday night I ran to open the box of "Acorn Caps" that came from a new supplier. I was so excited that I just had to play. The storms where howling outside but all I could think of was creating. I went to my stash of silk cocoons that I have saved for myself, gathered all my tools and glues as I ran to the basement. I started work on my "Funny Farm Silk Acorns" which I have been making for several years now. My wonderful nuts have been sold all over the world and soon they will be back up on Etsy. Some will have beads added others maybe a bit of glitter others will just be the perfect nut just the way they are - I so love what I do!!

You better start gathering your nuts now before they will be all gone... It will be a long winter without some these colorfull nuts.

Grace, I always thought you were a bit on the nutty side. Now I know it! Tee hee. They are very cute and fit right in on the funny farm.
