  1. So far we have most of our Christmas gifts bought and most of Thanksgiving food bought. Ham for Christmas. Now with cooler weather, I hope to do more sewing done. I think it's going to be a hard winter. We're in the middle of KS, and it's already freezing here. May God help us.
  2. Ohhhhhh.....thanks for the tip! I will measure a bunch and sew carefully.
  3. Around the same time I got the machine, I bought 10 yards of fleece to make pajamas.... Every Christmas Eve we give the kids (5 of them) Christmas pajamas, so this year I thought I would make them: pj bottoms for hubby and sons, oldest daughter and myself, and dress pajamas for the little girls (6 and 7). I'm pretty nervous about it, but I think I'll be okay. My Mom used to sew, so I'll be asking her to give me advice....and I'll be checking in here with ya'll! I'm not sure the material is fleece....but super soft and warm. I also got material for making quilts. My hope is that by
  4. Oh, that can't be too hard, right?? I could see about making same or complimentary material. Yes, I'm that Mom. 😂🙈
  5. My mom showed me the mark that's to make buttonhole....I had no idea. She laughed....I was glad to offer comic relief.
  6. And I have a bunch of kids....so I should!! I'll be asking for advice!
  7. My finished napkins! The material I got for Christmas napkins I'm going to try to make a different style. I need to put away the rest of the produce from the garden first....I also made summer dresses for my younger girls (yes, I know it's fall, don't judge me!), simple ones. They felt so loved!! Now my son is asking for boy clothes, too. Help! So fun and rewarding, though!
  8. Back when the pandemic started, hubby got me a brand new Singer. I'm just now pulling it out!! I'm no seamstress, by any means....but can sew in a straight line, so have made curtains, quilts and napkins. We like to decorate our table for the seasons, so I bought material to make (more) cloth napkins. They will be simple, and then I'll try to do the fancy corner ones....wish me luck!!
  9. Oh, that would be lovely!! 🥰
  10. Thanks, Jeepers.....it's one of my favorite spaces at our place. I'm hoping to add a picnic table outside for my Mom to be able to join me and help. Nothing is hooked up yet, and I'm afraid it won't be this season....but I'm so thankful that we can get it set up and ready for the next one! And, if stuff gets really bad, I have a place to cook and bake.....and of course, can!
  11. So....the outdoor kitchen is almost done, but hubby had to put it aside and start the greenhouse before it freezes....here's hoping he gets it done in time! The kids have been helping, too! Here's what it looks like now:
  12. Thank you ladies! It was for some cowboy candy I made (jalapeno jelly, kinda). It's yummy with cream cheese on crackers. But I made a ton! Prolific plants, I guess, praise God! I am thinking about pressure canning them, just to be sure they're safe.... I don't know about the percentage of acidity, so I'll be sure to look!!
  13. Hi! Wondering if apple cider vinegar is okay to use instead of white vinegar when it comes to canning? Thanks!
  14. So....I saw an article on CNN about the shortage.... because people were cooking a lot during quarantine. https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/07/us/mason-jars-canning-lids-shortage-trnd/index.html
