It’s all good

We are now in the process of putting the greenhouse up on our property, a nice warm home for the animals fix winter. 

There are a lot of rocks up here on our part of New England, we should sell them 😉

A lot of digging had to be done to remove said rocks to get the poles in the ground.

After today’s storm, that blew our trampoline away, I’m slightly worried about the greenhouse holding up.

I am excited to announce that I got my Christmas present early this year, something I’ve badly needed.


My old machine..well it was just not working very well for me anymore…nor anyone else who tried to use it. I was able to trade it in for a couple sewing feet!

I had previously borrowed my friend’s ambition essential and fell in love, I’m a happy girl and I’m happy about sales, without which this would not have happened.

I have been working on one special project, I’ve tried a couple times to make this and never finished….nor even gotten as far as I currently am. However I am almost done.


Leif’s birthday is coming up and I am making a life size Hobbes tiger. I am using the pattern from SukiGirl~~ changed just slightly. Using a I hook, HDC instead of SC, 10 in the magic ring for body & head, 8 for legs and arms. I am hoping to have it finished in the next 7 days.
Have a great day folks!

Harvest time

All week long I’ve been canning and harvesting


Applesauce, apple pie filling, apple jelly

This week I’ll be canning pie pumpkins

Our corn did not do well this year, we planted late and now all that remains is the popcorn, we are trying to give it as long as we can.


I am really enjoying the changing colors, we will have lived here a year November 7th and we missed all the changes last fall.

I am very excited this week because after dealing with a not so fun sewing machine for ten years, a friend from quilting is letting me borrow her machine…and I’m freaking out


I have never used a pfaff before, oh my goodness this machine is a dream 


How cool is that?!

Yes, I think a pfaff is my goal. I will work my behind off so I can afford one, it may take a year or two but one day folks, it will happen. 

Today I am currently working on trying to keep the illness away that seems to be plaguing everyone.
Have a great day folks!
