A lot of Dia and a bit o’ Jalie

Hey lovely folks!  I’m so excited we are finally to my favorite season of the year:  FALL!

This Autumn has been a bit different with the COVID factor, but we were still able to make it to our favorite orchard for some apple picking in our fabulous Misusu Dia sweatshirts (and Jalie 2918, more on that in a bit!)

Happy Summer Solstice! Why not read about my last make for Easter (exactly two months ago) whilst enjoying the longest day of the year? In Southern Wisconsin we’re looking at a lovely 15 hours and 22 minutes of daylight: well earned in the dark of Winter.


Also, this is my 250th blog post! Took almost seven years. 😂

Last but not least, here’s Peaches’ dress! Another Baby Jaimesyn by Simple Life Pattern Company. You can see what Cheeks and I wore in these previous posts. I had designs to make daddy a tie, but I ran out of time. Sorry for the short end of the stick, Mr. 5. :(
