Sewing for Fun

Well, I have decided to make myself a lovely plaid skirt. I have enough fabric to make a matching beret too. I love to wear black tights in the winter and the skirt will go great with them since the fabric is black, red, and white. A sweet white blouse and black cardigan and I am ready to go!

Time For Apple Picking and Halloween Goodies!!

Well, it's that time of year again when the kids grab their baskets and off we go to pick apples. We really enjoy this time together and we get to make so many yummy things with our apples. This year, we are making homemade applesauce. (I'll be adding the recipe soon!) We also hunt for our pumpkins now too with all the lovely harvests that are coming in, it should be fun.
Aren't they beautiful!
We always get cornstalks too for decorating!
Here are a couple of photos I found and thought I'd share with you. They are really old-fashioned and vintage.
