Holly's New Jumper

Hello!
We're having a nice, lazy day around here, as the world outside recovers from the latest blizzard.  We didn't get hit too hard - our power stayed on, and we were nice and cozy warm with the woodstove going.  Griffin and I made cheddar &  bacon muffins, and everyone's been happily munching away on them all day long.

Speaking of making... I actually made a thing for Holly!  So here it is, everyone that helped!  Holly in her new jumper.  This is a pattern from a library book, and I needed a lot of help, mostly because they pattern they provided had the pockets printed upside-down.  I thought that might be so, but I'm not an experienced sewer, and didn't trust myself.  It took both my Mother and my Mother-In-Law to get this done, and my friend Ambre to pick up the fabric from the store - truly a group effort.

When it was done Jai asked me if it was worth it.  Yes, I said.  She's going to wear it every day.




(Yes, that's a big stain down the front.  Of course!  I just had to give the kids a big pile of strawberries with their breakfast.   Luckily, it disappeared once dry (three cheers for brown corduroy), but here it is in the pictures, recorded for all posterity!)





Anyway, I know this was brief, but I've got to run for now.  Kids, you know.
The whole house smells awesome - we have a big pork roast from pigs raised by our friends, cooking away in the slow cooker.  Yum, yum.  Hooray for snow days!
