Mother Nature's Son.
Moving to the suburbs (OMG, two years already; I can hardly believe...) comes with a lot of benefits. But, it's also limiting in a lot of ways. In our former lives, we were incredibly accustomed to having access to specialty shops and grocers that provided us with access to the types of foods and products we prefer to use: organic, vegetarian, gluten-free, local. We've been able to adjust. Now that we have a yard, we garden and grow a lot of our own produce, for example. But, since moving away from the city, Mike and I have searched for places in our new surroundings that filled this void for us.
Quite on accident, Mike found Heritage Prairie Farm. We have a strange fondness for pickled foods: cucumbers,beets, garlic, green beans, etc...Anyway, right after we moved, he found a pickling class for us to take, so we could propel our fondness to the next level, at the farm. We've been continuously drawn back since for plant sales, they grow seedling from the same seeds we use, farm fresh eggs, honey, and Saturday morning coffee. They make an incredible cinnamon honey goat's milk latte. It's a really special place.
The farm also host a variety of other events, everything from weddings, to farm dinners, and craft shows. We were out there ordering our turkey for Thanksgiving dinner (this is a battle I lose, as the sole vegetarian in my clan) last weekend. It was a blustery (check out that hair), but beautiful day. And, Mike and I were able to take a couple of photos to share this place with you and show you another Archer/Moss Mini mash-up.
The flannel I used this time is Robert Kaufman Mammoth Flannel- Adventure. The fabric is considerably heavier than other flannels I've sewn with and has more pile. It's soft and scrumptious. The denim was shopped from my stash; it's secondhand from an estate sale. I'm steadily working through the fall/winter sewing I planned for myself, with the exception of pants... I'm not going to be able to put them off much longer. It's going to be too cold for tights soon.
Yeah...I'm the sole vegetarian in a sea of carnivores. And my daughter is a celiac so the holidays are EXTRA special fun for the two of us whose family just doesn't 'get' it. There's a rescue out here that has a big party the week before Thanksgiving that lets you eat WITH the turkey's :)
