" Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming.
See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop
and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains."
Being this far south, we don't have the same luxuries that Fall brings that I grew up with. I have such fond memories of going to real pumpkin patches with hayrides and corn mazes and mum bringing home the ingredients to make sweet potato pie (my dad's favorite) and pumpkin pie (my favorite!) :) There is just something incredibly enriching walking through the stands of squashes and gourds and pumpkins, etc!
Here, we do have some local farms that bring in the pumpkins and try to make it really sweet with 'make your own scarecrow', etc :) For us to experience the closest to the Harvest farm fun from days gone by, we make a day trip to central Florida where down home livin' is still the way of life and just about as serene and wonderful as it gets! I LOVE our trips there and we try to take the kids at least once during Fall - even though the girls are older, they still love the magic of it, too and watching their little brother see it through his eyes :) Beautiful :)
A month or so ago, I rearranged (semi-packed up!) the Cabana - my craft room :)
I was dismayed to see that a card I made and loved had been ruined by something that had leaked on it ~ not in it's plastic sleeve where I thought it was! I was able to save the image but none of the card which was perfect since this was always one of my favorites, so I quickly got to work and created a new card :) This peek-a-boo mouse is a digi from Pixie Dust Studios and I paper-pieced the pumpkin (my fave technique!) I used a Fall color theme and left the inside blank for future use. Peek-a-boo .... I do love you!
