You might have guessed it but these have been busy times around here! Today seems like the official start of the Christmas season because we made or first batch(actually 6 batches) of Cranberry Chutney. The house has been smelling simply lovely as there is nothing like cinnamon and orange together :) I made another batch of granola bars a few days ago and need to make some more soon.
Tomorrow we are going to Remembrance Day in Gettysburg, PA! This is the event I have been busily preparing for as it marks the beginning of the cold weather season reenacting season for us. I am very (!!!) happy to say that all four pieces of outerwear have been completed and are hanging on hangers. My sister finished hers just a half hour ago. It needs trim as does My mother's but that will wait till the next event :) I decided to push myself and make my dad a wool vest so I still need to put buttons and buttonholes on it before I go to bed tonight but other than that I don't technically have to do anything. I could come up with nearly half a dozen garments that would have been nice to have done but I simply don't have any more time. Anyways, since we are going to Remembrance Day tomorrow and will be all decked out, I can actually show you all pictures of the finished garments. It might take me a while to post them all as it is quite a bit but I promise I will because I will have absolutely no excuse :)
Now that Sarah has posted about David's Overalls, I really would like to make a pair for my dad. They seem like such a universal garment and one wouldn't have to worry about getting a nice pair of trousers dirty. What do you think, Dad? So much to think on :) My list for garments for my dad is getting really long!
My grandparents are coming in on Tuesday for Thanksgiving so we have been also been busily preparing for that :) I hope to update on those festivites also.
