Sunday in my Kitchen

A cool, rainy Sunday meant lots of cooking.... snickerdoodles for afternoon tea.
A rustic apple tart and a pork roast for dinner.
This was the scene at one end of my kitchen.

A cool, rainy Sunday also meant crafting.
This was the scene at the other end of my kitchen.

alas... my needle-felted pumpkins are now balls of orange dust-bunnies.
I decided we needed something new to grace our seasonal table.

First Nels and Helen cut down a beech sapling (nice pajamas, Helen).
Our woods are just aglow with the beeches right now.

Liz and Nelson then chopped and sanded.

We all gathered with fleece, felt, sharpies, and a glue gun.
To make these fun little guys.
They just need some lanterns...I'll happily skip Halloween and look directly to Martinmas.

I hope these don't turn into dust bunnies too.

These gnomes are so cute! My cats love to steal anything made of wool.

Adorable ~ they can be used year round! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment....and I did read about your daughter getting lost. If you have to get lost, that was a great place to do it. I would have had to stay in that professor's class. How neat that she gets to go to such places of academia. I agree with you, there are very few blogs that feature teens...especially teens that are doing cool projects; so I am glad to find this one. I am lucky that my teens are willing participants and OK with me putting them "out there". They don't like to admit it, but they are secretly proud when I feature them....the best is when I don't tell them and they read the blog on their own!
