Jake & The Hungry Caterpiller

Jake on his new quilt Mom made called the "Hungry Caterpiller." He also has his new fav items...wooden eggs in a bowl...each has been in his mouth at least a dozen times! I planted Narcissus in a bowl of vintage marbles...they smell sooooo sweet too! Tempting to bend over and sniff when gettin' those dishes washed.

The actual 'Phat Acre Farm'

It occurred to me that I had not yet posted any photos of our home & property here in Northern California! Below are a few glimpses...I will post more of the flowers, roses, and our beautiful Stone Pines! The back pasture photo was taken before the redwood fence went up.

Homemade Blackberry Honey Jam...
















We picked lots of blackberries this past Summer at Phat Acre Farm. These are the 'fruits of our labor'--freshly canned blackberry honey jam. This recipe is actually good for you since it uses no sugar, only raw Tupelo Honey as it's sweetener! I was pleased with how it really really 'set up' nice and thick despite the honey addition.


Little Jake is sitting up now at 7 months & playing ball with 'Sis' too!!!

'Retro Chic' Purse finished!


I took a class this past Saturday using Amy Butler's Sling Purse pattern. The pattern turned out to be a bit more complex than expected...with it's pleated center and 'bouffant' bottom...but is very roomy with 2 inner pockets (pictured below)...thumbs up on the practicality, plus it's cute!

Tropical Sunrise Muffins...

I ADORE muffins for breakfast with a good cuppa...& this morning the baby actually went back to sleep from 6-7:30 a.m....I decided to start my day with a bit of baking. These are actually GOOD for you, cuz their made with yogurt, crushed pineapple, high fiber whole wheat pastry and coconut flours too...could NOT resist adding a 'cherry on top'!!!

Chocolate Eggs.....& Frustrated Cutie Pie



The last egg on the right is from one of our Dutch Welsummer hens--looks like a Chocolate Egg! They are known for laying the darkest brown eggs of all chickens. For comparison I included the white egg from our Leghorn and the light brown from our Cochin.



JUST FOR FUN....This Lil' chick photo is from last Spring--A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!!!!!!!! Our daughter's doll bed was just too tempting for this 'Goldilocks'!!!

I stitched some themed pillows and a quilt for the season...The front pillow is raw silk homespun with wool applique hand done in wool thread, and the other is a simple pillowcase for daughter, Brooke.


Mom made this 'lil Halloween quilt just so I could look cute laying on it.... K?
