Farmgirl Friday

Good evening friends! It has been a week since I posted so I will just show you a couple of finished projects before I go over to Deborah Jean's Dandelion House to check out what all the Farmgirls have to share this week.
How much more farm girl can you get than a project from MaryJanesFarm magazine.  I have been meaning to try this pattern since I got this issue of the magazine but just got around to it.  Had to look through quite a few to find it, which was not a hardship at all.
Knitted these to pack for an upcoming trip this next week. 
Love the color. 
Last Friday night I was Friday Night Sew In and I was suppose to post what I got finished on Saturday.  Well I did not have the project finished until Monday so I will just have to add it to this evenings post.
Jelly Bag pattern from Bunny Hill
Fabric used. 
I also wanted a new tote for the same trip I mentioned a minute ago.  I thought this fabric made a great fall bag.  I think I can get all my magazines, a book, some knitting and my normal bag stuff in this bag.
This is my favorite tote I have sewn so far.  I think the handles are so cute! 

Since today is the first day of fall I thought I would share this photo.   I walked through my flowers and cut enough blooms to fill a jar this evening.  These are hubs favorites and I did not want to miss bringing some in the house before they were all gone.
Happy First Day of Fall! 
 Hope you will all go over to Farmgirl Friday for a visit here.  I will post Sunday Praise but then I will be "Leaving on a Jet Plane" (sorry could not help myself) and not be back until the following week.  I am sure I will have a lot to share with you when I get back.  Until then, blessings from our home in the woods!

Friday Night Sew In

I have sat here for a couple of hours visiting some of my favorite bloggy friends and getting some wonderful ideas to pin to my Pinterest boards.  But now it is time to get busy.  It is Friday Night Sew In over at Handmade by Heidi.

Handmade by Heidi

My choice of sewing projects actually starts from a recent weekend spent with the wonderful group of ladies I hang with whenever possible.  That is me in the center.  Do not like my picture taken and usually move off toward the end or in a less conspicuous spot so I am not sure how that happened.  We spent the weekend at this wonderful lady's cottage.
Receiving a thank you gift.
We did a bit of this.
We did a lot of this.
Took the following picture just because I loved the front of the shop.  Did not go into it.
But getting back to the Friday Night Sew In. I picked up the following patterns and fabrics of which one I plan on working on tonight.  Just need to get downstairs to my work room and make the decision.
A tote for my upcoming trip?
A Christmas gift?
I actually do not have the fabrics for these but I bought them on my girlfriend weekend and thought I would share.
 We also went to a Hosta farm that was inspirational.  Although mine have not been planted yet. 
Enjoy your Friday Night and hop on over to the party and check out what everyone is working on.  Or maybe you might want to join in?  Have a wonderful weekend.  Blessings from our house in the woods.

What I've Been Up To

I know it has been a while since I have told you all what I have been up to.  I think tonight I will mainly just post some pictures and you will understand that I have just been living life as we all have to and need to.  I always have good intentions of posting more often and sometimes do, but most often I am a once or twice a week poster and sometimes less.  Want to thank you now for coming by and for putting up with this post of pictures.  Hopefully I will have something of substance soon.  In the mean time this is what I have been doing.
Tomatoes from our garden.
Salsa put away in the downstairs storage room.
Tomato sauce for pasta.
Dehydrated tomatoes and hot peppers.
Worked a lot on this project over Labor Day weekend while our power was out.
Still hand sewing the binding on this quilt.
Spending Time with the Grands
 Gramps giving a golf lesson.
Lost first tooth.
First week of school.
As you can see, I have been busy with family and projects.  I have not forgotten about you friends,  I think about you all often.  Tell me what has been happening in your lives, I hope it has been as full as mine.  Blessings!

Sunday Praise

So sorry I have been missing for a couple of weeks.  We have been living life here at our house in the woods.  I will give you an update soon.  How many of you watched the tribute for the 911 victims this morning and how many tears were shed?  I think this song is appropriate for this day.  Have a wonderful Sunday!
