Labour Day Labours

This was a beautiful fall weekend. The clematis on the back deck is in full bloom, twined around the railing.
We were up and at it early for bee work, and the honey supers are now off. It appears to be a somewhat smaller crop than last year. We passed a field of cattle, silhouetted against the morning sky. The picture is a bit blurry, snapped quickly through a dirty windshield, but captures the stillness of the moment nonetheless.
There was even a bit of time for sewing, and a few more diamond samples were added to show at the upcoming workshops. I love sewing diamonds, and use them a lot in my designs.
Now that school has begun we are back to the routine of homework and packed lunches. The first batch of chocolate chip cookies came from the oven yesterday afternoon and a willing group of teenage boys were on hand for the taste test. The cookies got the nod of approval; surprisingly, there were even a few left to pack in the lunch bag today.
