Too Long

Oh how time flies. Seems like yesterday I posted and now I'm realizing it has been 5 months since my last post.  FIVE months! My apologies folks. (Lots of photos in this one.)

New hobbies have taken up most of the time lately.

play silks dyed with kool-aid

dill pickles

garden salsa

peach butter

My fabric penchant isn't lacking (that's for sure).

And my adventurous cooking makes it's occasional appearance.

(I'd link a recipe but, I just kind of made this one up as I went along)

Summer has gone, even though, it doesn't feel like it around these parts. Fall is arriving late to New England.
Despite the lack of typical fall weather we have done our usual autumn traditions. This past weekend we took the cubs pumpkin picking.

Then the cubs helped scrape out the guts.

I roasted the seeds, which were the best I've ever made.

Next up is making Halloween costumes. With a little over a week to go it's crunch time.

I'm also working on some wedding gifts which can not be revealed yet because the bride follows my blog.

More to come soon...

We are in exactly the same spot -- too much to do to blog! Looks like the family has been having fun!
