I have been very busy here at the store with the holiday rush an custom orders, but the other day I took the time to make something fun just for the anyhow of it! Meet Mr Snowman....

I used up some Homespun scraps that were laying around from one of Moms projects. 

He looks all dirty but that's just the fabric;) 
I never did any hand applique or embroidery before so that was really fun!
I really didn't have a pattern, I saw a photo of a similar one but couldn't find the pattern for it. 
Will have more pics later on of a baby quilt I quilted the other week! After I figure out how to edit a pic taken in raw;)

Lil Miss..

Kricket had her first litter of puppies (2 girls and a boy) on 9-11. They are a rowdy bunch and a lot of fun right now. I was outside with them the other evening and just had to grab my camera and take a couple pics. Thought this lil girl looks a lot like her mama...

Add some embroidery and I think this just might be one of my favorite aprons ever. Other folks must like them too cause I already sold both of them:) 

Dad says I'm cheating or playing on peoples emotions cause what Gma can resist such an apron:):) LOL

Pumpkins, Gourds, and Mums

We did some Fall Decor in preparation for Harvest Fest.. which was on Saturday. I wanted to get those pics up yesterday but you see.. It was my birthday.. and I was busy:) Having fun:) My friend woke me up at 7 AM and took me for breakfast then I went to the library and checked out a big stack of books!! Such a good day:) Although I really didn't accomplish anything. Anyhow, here are some pics of Fall decor at the store.. on the outside anyhow..

Labor Day

We went canoeing and kayaking on Labor Day with friends.. Even Miss Rosie went along:)

wet, dirty & tired

The river was perfect. Not too busy, warm and just deep enough that we didn't get stuck a lot. Yet not too deep that we couldn't tip canoes if we wanted to:):) For some reason I got tipped:) and splashed a lot:)

This lil girly was awake and happy most of the 7 mile trip but promptly crashed when we got back. She was exhausted.

We then wanted to go to the covered bridge area there in Mohican for a picnic but it was very full. So we found another picnic area. Ended up going home earlier cause we couldn't really go on a hike or play in the river.

Most of us took a nap after we got home before playing a couple games of Fist! A very fun lazy day!
