new creatures for the craft fair

curious about pine comb

Here is a picture of Lincoln holding a pine comb. He is so cute and curious about the natural world. I love his little chubby hands!

handmade by a bookbinder paper folder

This toy was made for Lincoln by one of Bill's graduate school professors Hedi Kyle. I think it is so pretty and wanted to show you some pictures.

blurry autumn

Time has been passing so quickly for me. Last week was a great week. It has been so nice out! Lincoln and I go to the park everyday. Bill and I haven't accomplished everything we have wanted but we have been having so much fun with Lincoln and our friends. This weekend we made two delicious lasagnas and froze one and Bill made southern style sweet tea. Friday Bill, Sarah and I had a pizza pie from the upper crust in Salem and watched project runway. Saturday we went down to Providence to see John and his beautiful daughter Lola. Sunday we had family/work on stuff day and I made Lincoln a funny toy that looks like a ufo peach while listening to Johns new dirty Beatles album. Monday we went to the orchard with the Karjala family and ate some hot cider donuts and in the evening Rhea and Molly stopped in for some tea time. The week ahead looks just as busy as last but I am going to see Natalie and Molly, two lady friends I love! This blog thing is hard to keep up with but I am going to keep at it and put some new stuffed creature pictures up soon. I had more ideas and things to write about but I kept putting it off and now my mind is blank. bye bye.

hot chocolate cat

My old New England sadness.

I finally feel like I am back in Massachusetts the leaves started changing and the grey clouds have been in the sky since Lincoln got his first cold last friday. I feel tired today. He was up all night crying because of his fever and ear pain. He is napping at the moment and it is so quiet in my house. The cats are asleep and the rain and wind has stopped. This weekend Bill and I have big house work plans and creature making plans for the December Boston bazaar bizarre. It's exciting to have a weekend at home with Bill. Last weekend we went to visit friends in Northampton and the weekend before that Bill had to work for a book binder in Waltham. We have been so busy since we moved to Massachusetts from Philadelphia. Our house is still not homey enough so we decided that everyday we are going to do something to make our house feel more home like even if it's something small like hanging one picture. Tonight we might warm our bellies and make banana bread with our black bananas. I also need to get a pumpkin. There is nothing like feeling the weight of a fat orange vegetable in my arms. I love this time of year, the sun light, the dark evenings, the crisp air, the trees, and field grown sun warmed pumpkins.
