More fungi which make useful stools. Stropharia aeruginosa. No common name given. Aeruginosa means ‘stained by copper salts’.
The yellow one is Amanita citrina which means lemon coloured. Apparently it smells like raw potatoes. Amanita muscaria. Muscaria means ‘a fly’ and it gets its common name fly agaric from being used in a preparation to kill flies.

I sewed her hair this morning. I am making a house too-well it was a house but continued lack of planning means it is too small so it is going to be the bedroom of the dancing witch.

Trying again with a witch doll. This time I decided to make her human. She seems to have turned into a ballerina though.

8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.

Mouse. An example of making the best of a bad job. I set out to make a felt cat which I was going to make into a witch. I didn’t bother with a pattern and also only thought as far as the head after a quick look at one of my cats. But it turned out like a mouse so I thought it could be a witch mouse. But then I couldn’t see any way of making it bend round to fit a body. Having just spent some time with a taxidermy artist, and having seen lots of crafty dermy type things, mouse stopped at a head, and was mounted on a piece of beachcombed wood from Dungeness. The piece of china is from Northumberland. Hurrah!

Thank you card I made for my friend for feeding my cats for the second weekend in a row. I used a piece of Honesty from a bunch I got the other day. The lady in the shop told me that in Italy the common name for it is ‘the Pope’s money’.
