Slowly..........Getting some things accomplished, making some headway! I'm not really pushing myself, I don't think, but I am never not busy. Things to catch up on, bills to pay, phone calls to make, thank you's to get out, daily chores and family......it all takes so much time. BUT I'm getting a few things finished along the way.
I made a batch of Strawberry Jam to go along with the Raspberry Jam I made a few weeks ago. It is delightfully delicoius. I can't decide which I like best, it's 50/50 with family members!
Look at these red strawberries
They made 8, 8oz jam jars : )
These were the raspberries and sugar
Also made 8, 8oz jam jars
Next on my try to finish list was my second and youngest granddaughters American Girl doll sweater. Over the summer I knit and knit, off and on, during the summer.....and it occurred to me why was this taking so long to finish a doll sweater. Finally I finished the front and back and realized it was so wide it could have fit two dolls. I worked the sleeves and had to do some major adjustments......not fun!
So it looked like this
Can you see how wide the sweater is.....I think two American Girl dolls could wear this. So I had to do a lot of fudging and zig zag stitches and then cut my extra knitting off.
All that extra knitting and time......chopped
But the end result I'm pleased with : ) But I'm not happy about how I had to do it......if it were for a real person I would have started over!
❤Ready for Lizzie❤
Fall is here in my part of the world. Let me show you in photos...........
Here is an update of the farm animals down my lane.
There are 3 baby lambs, 9 grown sheep, 5 baby calves, 4 cows and 2 pigs. I feel so lucky to have this a short walk away. I see them everyday with my walks with Jack. Jack thinks he is so tough and runs for them. Of course his back hair is standing on edge, he is really a big baby, but I won't tell him!!
Jack and I thank you so much for visiting us here on my blog. Love you popping over and especially love your comments. Hope you are all having some time for being creative or doing what you love best.
