My son makes a movie

This is what happens when our son makes off with the camera..

Watch his reaction near the end when he hears his Daddy call from the other room. So funny!

Harvesting onions

...I love the smell of wet earth-and-onions...

My "pickers" are so sweet! :o)

Finished a dress

I finished this jumper dress today! I made it with lots of room for a growing belly. The bodice is lined with natural muslin. This was a fun project, and I tried a new technique, French seams.

French seams were actually very easy to do, and while my side seams are not perfect, I love the smooth finish underneath! Will definitely be using this method again in the future, since I don't have a Serger to finish the edges.

Roomy patch-pockets.

100% natural. Traditional. That's me.

Hubby says I can be a little saucy at times, too. ;o)
