Completed projects

Roller blind (purchased from Ikea) for Colin's room installed. Which has resulted in much longer nap times :o)

Sheer window coverings for both the small side windows of the bay window. Now it's not scary to be in the living room alone.

Lilly apron complete. I wore it tonight while making Beer Cheese Soup, good thing I did cause I already got food on it. The pattern was fairly easy to read, only one minor mistake which turned out for the better I think. I didn't sew on two additional pieces to the ties, I missed that part in the instructions, and by the time I noticed I decided it was just fine the way it was. It's a really cute apron that covers really well, but for my body type it is not at all flattering.

Spare a Square Scrap Challenge- still working on the project but I finally figured out what I am doing and am almost done. I hope it turns out as good as I imagine it.

Roloff Farm Pumpkin patch- the weather was perfect and we found a very nice pumpkin and had a wonderful time. There was a bit of a wait to get into the parking lot but once we got into the pumpkin patch it didn't seem like there was that many people there.

Picking out a pumpkin just his size.
The family.

Tanner's dog jacket-My cousin Tiffany came for a visit this last weekend we went to fabric depot with Sarah and she found a Simplicty pattern for a dog jacket/sweater. So guess what we did. I have never made clothes before so figuring out the sleeves took a bit but they turned out great. the only problem was that we sewd the neck on wrong, our seem was on the outside. I of course wanted to take it apart and redo it, but Tiffany didn't want to. So we added a ribbon and a bow to cover it up.

Outdoor chairs- I can't remember if I blogged about this or not. If I did please excuess me. We went with apple green spray paint. We have one chair done and three more to do. Unfortunatly the fall weather is already here so we will probably finish the chairs in the spring/summer.
I think the chair looks pretty good with the dark brown table. Please ignore all the tools in the background.

Home made baby food- I have made zucchini, acorn squash, carrots, and apples. So far Colin likes the squash and the apples, he will get to try the carrots tomorrow. Lucky us, the vegetables were provided by my moms organic garden and the local grocery store had organic apples. I wish I knew of a local apple orchard where we could go and pick our own. That would so much fun.
Beer Cheese Soup (I forgot to post about this in the original post)-
I love beer cheese soup! Christina has the best recipe for home made beer cheese soup I have ever had. I didn't ask her permission to share it so if you are interested in it head on over to here and email her. Maybe if enough people ask for it she will post it. Also, she has some other great recipes on her blog so check those out too.

Well, that is a big list, makes me feel like I got some stuff done. I will try and take some photos of projects that i didn't have photos for. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

You have been a busy girl. Colin looks so cute in his little suit and I love the pumpkin picture. I've never made a dog jacket but I bet I could use a few. Lady and Olivia are alway cold. Post a pic of your apron I want to see it done.
