Bit and Pieces from the Last Few Days

Enjoying the beautiful purple wild asters.

Working on some ideas for Christmas gifts.

Finished another Plain Vest for my shop.

The weather has been just amazing for so long now.  What a gift.

I love the little dangling feet in this picture.

This is Polly, the meat bird, that Sarah brought home to rescue from our friend's flock of 50 chicks.
She is huge now!  We are not sure what we will do with her this winter because when we put her with the layers they beat her up terribly.  

At just 2 years old, Emmy pretty much shadows me most of the day.  So when I make bread dough, as I add the ingredients, I give her her own bowl and spoon and let her make her own using just a small amount of the flours, water, salt and oil.


  1. I love these little glimpses into your days. Emmy is so sweet and big! And I love that vest.

  2. I do enjoy the scenes of your lovely life! You are truly rich. Have a great week!

  3. Beautiful glimpses into your life. What a joyful one it is!
    (Love those precious dangling feet too!)

  4. Did you know that you can use the Asters medicinally? They are great for coughs and respiratory issues, we actually have some steeping in honey right now for use in the winter : )

  5. Emmy is so beautiful! and I love the little pocketbook/billfold/notebook? anyway the autumn colours with the wonderful button! - is that a single crochet?

  6. hi!
    i was just coming to write about Asters as well - we have some steeping in honey, and you can also make a useful tincture with them.
