Busy busy

This time of the year is always so busy.  I only do craft shows in the Fall and Winter, so I'm super busy trying to make things for those.  In addition, my new part-time job is taking it's share too. Add on top of that trying to take care of the harvest from the garden, and there just doesn't seem to be a spare minute!  Here's just a few things I've been working on.  I'm so excited to have gotten some new patterns today and can't wait to get started on those!  Have a great day everyone.
Two of the Santas I have made so far.  They are available for sale on my blog as well.  Price for each is $22.95 plus $4.95 S&H  I just love these guys - their beards are pure sheep wool from my friend's sheep. I'm so lucky to have two bags full of it.  One cream colored and the other black.

Remember the apples in the display chain the other day?  They are now yummy applesauce!  My husband made the wooden box cover for my mixer - He did a great job!

A little basket of goodies I prepared for the neighbors.  I made a big batch of cranberry nut granola and included some of that, a jar of the applesauce, some fresh baked cookies and one of my little fabric pumpkins.
I got my granola recipe from Stone Gable, and added my own extras to it.  They have lots of yummy food recipes.  Check out the caramel apples featured today.
