this moment

Joining with Soulemama this week.
A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

oldgatesfarm.com

I haven't updated or even checked our farm website this summer...and I belatedly found out that Apple's mobileme is no longer in existence.  This was how we hosted our website (through iWeb)  Anyway, I'm bummed because I have no clue how to design a website (without a simple tool like iWeb).  For the time being, I've redirected any oldgatesfarm.com traffic to this blog.  Just let me know if there are any issues for our blogreaders...I'm not very good at this type of stuff! :)

EDIT: AND I just realized that somehow in the process of redirecting our website, I lost our "Where I visit" list!  If your blog was on that list and is no longer showing up, please let me know!

fall crafting

Finding some patterns and ideas for this fall and winter...
Something like this (which I found here)
and this
And if I knew French, this
and this
and this
We'll see how many I get to!  I *should* be preserving food or crafting for our 
upcoming holiday farmers' markets.  :)

cousins





Having a great time with cousins!  We all live in different states, so it's been a real treat to spend time together this week.  The boys love it!

keep calm, craft on




Joining Nicole from Michigan this week.  Finished this project..which I really like, 
though I wish it was a bit longer.
I'm happy with the yarn and it was a fun, quick knit!

Back to the beach! ;)

keep calm, drive on

No crafting right now!  I'm on the road with Micah...headed to the sandy shores of Lake Michigan!
Wish me luck--it's a long drive.  :)

favorite markets









We were vendors at a local historical fest this weekend.  It's one of my favorite markets to do.
Good music, interesting vendors, and two dear friends as "neighbors" (the beautiful yarns and 
delicious pies).  We had a great day!

keep calm, craft on



We're back just in time to join Nicole again this week!  It's crazy how tough it is to live without the computer for 4 days (when you aren't choosing to on purpose!)  
But it gave me extra time to work on this project. 
Another thing giving me a bit more time...I only have my little guy with me right now.  
Our big boys are in Michigan visiting my parents.
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Internet troubles here on the farm... hopefully they'll be fixed soon!  

Have a great weekend!

(Don't mind the very old photo..it seemed fitting and I had very few to choose from while on our library's computer!) ;)
