Between his pillow case making and Audra's decorative pillow making, we are swimming in and around pillows and pillowcases. Yet they ask me if they can make another and I reply " Yes". The answer is always yes when it comes to stitching. They are becoming quite independent!

Year in Review:Update 1
Garden update #3
And what it looks like now all tucked in for winter. I spread almost completely by myself another 14 yards of wood chips, fully embracing a Back to Eden permaculture garden next year again. I had five years of tilling here, and no longer do I till. This coming year will be the 4th year of a no till permaculture. It's become my favorite way of gardening. Most of the work is not in the heat of summer. The cooler months are the months that require the attention. I much prefer it that way!
We're getting used to having a wee one in the house again. We do love our little Copper. And Holly. And our fireplace. And books. And kid love when I work from home and daddy has a training so they can watch movies. We've only had Copper a week and a half, but he has been such a great addition.
Hoping to do some weekend sewing this weekend, my little sewing buddy along side of me. My dad made that little 'iron' and she uses it quite a bit. She's even wearing a little wool dress that's mama made. <3
My husband brought the big kids on a hike and I stayed home for a 1:1 date with Anna-Kate and to tend the puppy. We went for a walk, sang lots of nursery rhymes, listened to her monologues without interruptions, played with the puppy, read books and she insisted we both eat fruit snacks and color. Her dream date is pretty awesome in my book! To think she did the 'date' wearing mama mades from head to toe (pants, dress, coat) is frosting on the cake!
