I have been working on this custom flannel baby blanket for a VERY long time and finally listed it in my shop. It's not like me to take a long time on custom orders, since they are my favorite part of what I do. However, having been sick for a while, this one took longer than usual. Thanks again to my fabulous customer Christine for being so patient with me!

After being side-lined for a while due to some health issues, I am feeling much better and I'm slowly getting back to listing items in my shop and sewing away. Most importantly, I have the energy again to play with my two "best guys." Here are some pictures from our trip to the pumpkin patch last weekend. We couldn't resist getting this little pumpkin for Moses in addition to his big one.
A HUGE thank you to all of my super understanding customers as I've been very slow with orders over the last few months. I appreciate all of you so much!

And I'm not speaking figuratively, as you can see. We live on the "back 40" of my dad's farm and are so fortunate to be surrounded by REAL farm animals, as my dad raises sheep and chickens for fun. There are also a huge flock of wild turkeys, the occasional raccoon or coyote, and plenty of deer to be seen on a daily basis. It is a fantastic place to raise a little boy, and he and I spend the majority of our time outside exploring the farm. Yes, it does make for more laundry and MANY more trips to the bathroom to wash our hands, but it is so fun I hardly even notice. (Having three younger brothers I already knew that little boys are supposed to get dirty!) This is one of Moses' new favorite locations: perched on the fence along the driveway on the lookout for turkeys. He does a pretty darn realistic turkey call, too!
