Just for fun

I made baby Malawi these little leg cuffs

 Crocheted with embroidery thread, and I included 3 whole pictures! because I know what you are really looking at are the chubby brown rolls ♥

Feeling fall

We have made a few things that feel like fall, I cut, and Imani painted some pretty leaves

Up they go!

Our nature table is in full fall glory

And this is:  "what fall looks like" by Imani

Are you feeling fall yet? ~

Apple cidering

Is what we decided to do on this beautiful warm first day of Fall....

We made about 2 gallons of this heavenly fresh juice, and every drop was worth the blisters on my fingers!

I never dreamt                           
that tender blossoms
would be brown
Or precious angels
could come down
to live in the garden
of my giving heart
But here you are
brown angel

60 fingers and toes

I only realize the magnitude and sheer number of having 3 little ones when I have to clip 60 little brown fingers and toes....

And I absolutely love it ♥

Imani has been asking me to make her a crochet bead necklace lately.....

These are little crochet balls stuffed with soft
                                                                                          Alpaca wool

 ..... inspired by the warm earth tones of  the changing leaves, and the deep blue of the fall skies~

Golden days

Nothing feels and smells more like end of summer then a golden wheat field, freshly baked by the sun, slightly yeasty smelling, flies lazily buzzing

Cool mornings, bright sun, we could have played here forever ~~~~~
come fall!  we are ready for you
