I love this time between Halloween and the full sprint of the Christmas season. It’s not quite time yet to scramble for presents and decorate everything in site. It’s cozy, November is pure fall weather, and the leaves are still bright and everywhere on the ground. But I feel crafty, and I’m in the mood to be out trekking around the neighborhood, and the woods nearby. I had a batch of leaves ready to go, so when my nephew came over last week for a playdate after school I decided to make some turkeys.

We bought Hannah a cedar playhouse from Costco for her birthday back in the spring, but Adam didn’t get a chance to assemble it until a few weeks ago. At first it was too cold to build it, then he broke his toe and couldn’t build it. So, finally, she has her playhouse now in the backyard!

Woohoo! I’m so excited to finally announce this one. I made this quilt about  a year ago, and now I can share it! It’s in Issue 15 of the Australian digital magazine Make Modern. I love that magazine (check out their Instagram, too, @makemodernmagazine–it’s gorgeous). And I’m so proud to actually be in it!

We signed up for a membership at Monmouth Museum, our local county museum over at Brookdale Community College. My brother’s kids love this museum, and it’s been on my list of things to check out for ages. Their recommendation pushed me to check it out on a recent weekday when we needed something fun, local, and out of the heat. The museum is doing a deal in July that gives you 13 months on a membership instead of 12, and they had some great hands-on exhibits and playscapes for the preschool set.
