Fall/Winter sewing camp: the planner

After looking through all the fabric, patterns, and the few clothes Asha can still wear from last winter, Alison helped me come up with a good plan for fall/winter sewing.  I made a chart to organize it in my binder.  Here is one of the pages.  If you are interested in the books I am getting the patterns from, you can check our Japanese sewing blog.  


We are deep into the canning season.  My kids are loving all the fruit and tomatoes.    


Quinn likes to talk to the birds.  "Birbie, birbie" he calls, and then gets sad when they fly away.  


Here is Kai grinding the wheat for me.  He takes this job very seriously, and does a great job.

Where did you get all that fruit? We went picking but it wasn't great stuff.

I think you should post a pdf of the chart because I could use that and I'm too lazy to create my own.

Maryanna misses Kai!

Alison,
We got the fruit from Lewiston. I will work on the PDF.
