Yarn Nests and Christmas Aprons!

My sister made me this lovely Robin's nest for my birthday, I LOVE IT! She said it is a pin cushion but right now I have it on my night stand. I hold it every day! Each little egg even comes out!!! I don't know if it is crocheted and knitted I can't do either...isn't it sweet!

I have been busy sewing lots of Christmas Aprons for all the ladies in the family. I have used 3 different patterns and am very happy with the way they turned out.

Tuesday I made my last batch of jelly for the season. I am so grateful for the abundance our garden yielded this year! I have bottled for 3 months solid...I am so done and welcome the snow. We have weatherized the chicken coop, burned or composed all the garden waste and leaves. Raked, put the koi fish pond to bed for the winter and this week my son is going to hang the outside Christmas lights! I am so ready for the holidays....bring them on baby...I can take it!!!

What a delightful gift from your sister! So very unique. And she does beautiful work.
You have been quite busy this summer. But tasting all those yummy goods this winter will be so worth the work.

The nest and bird's eggs are adorable! What a sweet gift your sister gave you. And I love the idea of aprons for all the ladies. Especially when they're handmade. I'm sure they will love them.
