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.

around the farm




A very quick around the farm this week.  Fall is here, for sure!  
And we're busy getting the farm ready for winter
and trying to enjoy this beautiful season!

What's going on around your farm, garden or homestead?

in the kitchen, on the needles







Joining Nicole today with some crafting in the kitchen AND on the needles.  
I bought the simplest lipbalm (just olive and beeswax) and loved it.  Thought
I'd make some for myself!
Lots of yogurt and fall raspberries
and lots of squash for dinner, too!

Finished the baby sleep sack and the Noro cowl.
And started this dress, although I read the pattern wrong...
I'm still going with it though, we'll see how it turns out! :)

any ideas?

Kaylo would like to be a woodpecker for halloween.  I have some ideas (black felt wings with black outfit), but would love some of my creative readers out there to help me brainstorm the best way to make the head/mask/beak!  Thanks! :)

knitting, knitting, knitting


Joining Nicole this week with a bunch of knitting.  Finished another cowl/hat--love this pattern!  Just have to add the ribbon.  Made a quick baby hat, working on a "sleep sack" and about to start another cowl with that beautiful Noro on top!  ...Thinking about our big craft fair coming in November! ;)

"Too Many Pumpkins"

We felt like we were in one of our favorite fall books today--Too Many Pumpkins!
Our pie pumpkins and butternuts did so well this year!  Now we just have to sell them.  ;)

crafting





Joining Nicole this week with a little playdough kit we put together for our friend and neighbor who is turning two (now I just need to make some playdough to go with it!)  The lovely maple roller is handmade by Tonya's family.

AND, the cowl/hat pattern that I started last week.  Love it!...though I actually forgot the pattern on our little trip to a wedding this weekend, so I improvised the ribbon holes and top.  Wish I had more ribbon laying around...will have to make a trip to get some more because I'm working on another one already.

around the farm



















Our fall crops are coming in great...beets, carrots, chinese cabbage, spinach, lettuce, herbs and our winter squash is ready early (and delish!)  
Our pullets are in with the layers (and hopefully will be laying soon),
our cover crops are coming up,
10 new piglets born early Monday morning,
 lots of happy barncats
and farmboys,
and I snuck in a baby bump picture (or at least a reflection)--20 weeks this weekend.
