Autumn Craft

The clocks have changed, the mornings are brighter and the evenings darker; Venus visible, as it follows the setting sun.
The weather is changeable, cooler nights with rain and quite windy episodes.
I picked about 10 ripe limes, which coincidently weighed the exact amount to make a batch of lime marmalade. The batch made 6 jars of marmalade, which has set perfectly and tastes wonderful, jars of sunshine! There are 5 ripening pink fleshed grapefruit and the olives are nearly ready to be picked.
I have made over thirty Christmas cards, using two designs, the angels from a peel-off sheet, the robin, images already on the journal. Techniques used include decoupage, printing, layering, stencilling and embossing.
