Apples everywhere

We went apple picking with the Brancs on Saturday and it was glorious! The orchard was overflowing with apples. Our bags were stuffed and now we have about 10 thousand apples in the house. I've already made mini apple pies, apple cake, and apple squares. I am now over apples.

Here's what we've been working on....

The craft fair is October 17th so Mich and I have been sewing and crafting when the mood strikes. For me,that usually means a stint of 4 hours of straight sewing.
Here are a few things I've done this week. I didn't actually sew the dress or the onesies...just embellished them. I did however make the apron...I can do those with my eyes closed at this point!

A lil caterpillar

Obviously baby boys need the option to look dapper

Sweet Little Cupcake Onesie

I heart aprons!

these are just a few of the items that will be on sale at the craft fair on October 17th! Be sure to come support Friends for Friends RFL Team!

We're going for it!

A craft fair being 'it'! Mich and I are going to be selling some of our glorious yet to be made sewing projects at a craft fair. While a craft fair is 80's and probably makes you think of hand panted wooden cut outs...Mich and I are taking it to another level! Coffee Cuffs, Key Chains, Aprons, Luggage Bands, and any other crazy thing we can come up with will be for sale. All the proceeds go to benefit my Mother mother's Relay For Life Team; Friends For Friends! We need to get sewing.

I know I fell behind...

but it was for a good reason, not just being lazy.
My computer DIED....and I had to go to Cali for work. While I wasn't too enthused with traveling 4,000 miles for a 3 hour meeting with a crappy loaner computer I did get to visit with friends..which is always fantastic. I got to see lots of amigos and amigas as well as eat at Kemosabe! Good Things Growing may be my favorite meal item ever!

While I was away a sweet little baby girl was born. We've all been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Baby Brancaleone and she came just before I boarded my plain to Oakland.

Janelle Olivia Brancaleone of the Branc2 is the cutest! I got to meet her yesterday and love love love her. She is not only blessed with amazing parents, but a seriously loving Auntie Mich and Uncle Mink who are going to spoil her rotten. I brought my camera along for our first rendezvous and only took 167 photos.

First Night & some Bill Simmons

Last night was the first night by myself in doeviswood! Chris is out in Cali for work and it was just the loafster and I. It's wicked quiet. Thankfully I'm reading a baseball book instead of something scary or else I'd be sleeping with a henkle next to the bed.

Speaking of baseball.....

Anyone whose a Boston sports fan knows Bill Simmons. I think he is hilarious. I had the opportunity to meet him a few years back at a book signing. He definitely has OCD.

Speaking of bill Simmons.....

I'm not much of a basketball fan...not yet anyway. Being back home may be the catalyst for an obsession with the Celtics, but we shall see. However, this article is AMAZING! Really...using quotes from Almost favorite movie to explain the NBA free-agent buying spree:
