so when i started knitting this fall – hoping to actually make some gifts this year I didn't know I'd stick with it…but there has been
this piece is actually done – as far as the knitting goes. it need a few things, like stuffing, but i'll get to that.
there will be some finished project pics at some point, but that will have to wait as this is a gift (although some are too little to surf!).
i think i might have the most beautiful pumpkins. it only took three pumpkins patches (maybe four) to find some non-traditional orange pumpkins. with heirloom tomatoes so much in vogue i thought finding 'other' pumpkins would be easy. we did buy 3 'regular' pumpkins – plus the two we already had. and then we picked out a 'cinderella', a 'lumina' and a 'jarrahdale' – the blue one – my favorite!
so i'm picking up the pace baking/cooking wise. fall (almost winter) is definitely here and it seems like a good time to bake and eat. i made pumpkin pie and cookies with the kids after school today. and since i was making pumpkin pie and was going to have an extra crust i made quiche for dinner. thank goodness i steamed some brocoli to go with that so that at least one dish didn't have cream as an ingredient!
