The Apple Pie Social has come and gone. The day was a rainy one, but that didn't stop us - or anyone else from getting out there to join the fun.
Homemade apple pies were being sold whole or by the slice in the gazebo. We came home with a delicious pie and a jug of cider, too.
While snacking on a slice of pie and a glass of cider, I'll be enjoying this new pattern from Primitive Pieces by Lynda.
I left a comment on Lynda's blog recently and became a winner of her newest pattern, Mocking Birds. Thank you, Lynda - I can't wait until I've found all my supplies so I can get to work on this.
Look what else arrived on our doorstep yesterday! A thoughtful, heartwarming care package for the whole family from The Quilter.
Take a peek at me relaxing on the sofa in my new hand-knitted socks.
I just can't get over them. They fit perfectly, are snugly warm and just a wonder to look at - the stripes, the ribs, the heel. I'm ready to face winter now for sure.
Look who else is going to be snugly warm come winter.
Here is Hubby sporting his new scarf. If only you could see how the color brings out the blue in his eyes. He got a haircut yesterday and has a freshly shorn look that I don't think he would appreciate having published on the 'net.
Guess who had her nose in the box right away. I won't even make her do tricks for these.
Look at these little gift cards. Haven't we all had these sentiments when sending one of our creations out into the world?
I hope you don't think the fun is over. That box also had a little treat for the house, too. A cotton knit dishcloth and potholders.
Oh - and one more thing. A charm that will be in my pocket for a good bit of the time.
There have been many moments in the last couple of months that I could have really used a hug. Having this little charm in my pocket will remind me there is one out there whenever I need one. Thank you, Paula - from the whole family, but most especially from me.
