There is something totally fun and exciting about entering items in the county fair! Even though I crafted often as a child (sewing, crocheting, miniatures, etc.) I never entered anything in the fair until last year. I wasn't as excited about my projects this year, but I still did fairly well (no pun intended :).

It is such a fulfilling thing to harvest food and see it processed and made ready to give or store for future use. Yesterday my kids and I were able to go to our gracious neighbors home to pick from their chokecherry trees. We made syrup to enjoy on pancakes and waffles. Yum!

|Miss D's Crochet Hat|
I had a request from a friend to make a hat for her daughter, so I decided to make a couple more for my own daughter and her Hearts 4 Hearts Doll (she got to choose the colors). These hats are fun and easy to make. I did alter the finishing to more of a band and added elastic just around the bottom to make it a more fitted hat. I imagine making lots of these in the future.

|My Flock of Edible Penguins|
Had so much fun making these little guys for a Christmas party we attended. My husband even got in on it and helped me cut feet and beaks. They were so simple and cute! Next time I think one can of olives will be enough though, here I used two cans (one small, for the heads, and one medium, for the bodies).

Though the days have been busy I have continued knitting and sold a number of wristwarmers and coffee cozies at our local coffee shop, The Beta. This set of knit wristwarmers shows a pair in youth and adult size. Hoping to continue making and selling more during these chilly winter months.
