Old Quilts...Angel Wings...Wool Feather Trees...

I have a collection of old and worn
cotton quilts.  But, they are not used 
to 'cozy with'...

They are perfect to "cover up" my 
tomato plants when the night time 
temperatures fall to freezing.

I use clothes pins to secure the quilts
around the tomato plants...

These are my tomatoes today,
at the end of October. I am hoping to have
homegrown tomatoes at Thanksgiving.
I've already had them at Christmas, 
but it depends on if the weather cooperates !

Something angelic maybe ?

Wings that take flight...
(all those little loops, almost look like tiny little pearls)

~Also, I have been receiving MANY, many 
requests for the Wool Feather Tree directions.
I now have a link on my side bar, for 
how to obtain them.

Have a wonderfully creative day.

  2. I have a goose feather tree I made years ago which had dyed green feathers and enjoy it. Have been tempted to make a wool feather tree but haven't yet. Lauren, maybe you and I should take on that challenge.

    Rose, I'm jealous of your tomatoes as I'd mentioned before. Smart woman to protect the bounty.

  5. Good Morning,

    I tried to purchase the directions for making a wool feather tree, but they are sold out. Any other source that you can think of?

    Thanks much.

  6. I love your angel wings. I do hope you are able to have fresh tomatoes at Christmas. That is positive thinking. :)
    We were so foggy this morning I couldn't even see the fences. :)
