Pumpkin Pie Apple Pie

Two sugar pie pumpkins...

yield a lot of pumpkin puree! Much more than I needed for one pie so I'll make soup from the rest.

The Thanksgiving pies. I meant to take a photo of the beautiful apples for the apple pie, Cameo and Granny Smith. Both were delicious!

"J" is for Birthday Cookies

My Auntie Janet and my friend Jennifer have birthdays in the same week, how convenient for these initial cookies! They're sugar cookies with a simple glaze, all packaged up and ready to mail. I hope they travel well!

Happy Birthday to you Both!

Toddler Peasant Dress


I bought a yard of this fabric at my favorite local shop, Buttons 'n' Bows, a few months ago. I've been wanting to make Gracie a dress and finally decided on this peasant dress pattern. And how perfect that I had just enough fabric! I made version C with some slight variations including shortening it two inches. I think it could be shorter still, but it might fit her for a while this way.

I enjoyed making it, she likes wearing it, and it looks very cute on her. A successful sewing project completed!
