Favorite Things

Our favorite time of year.  Leaves are beginning to turn color...
And we're makin' fried pies from fruit gathered here on the farm...
On the knitting front I made another round of fingerless mitts from the pattern I mentioned last time. Find it here.
This crochet potholder makes me smile. Another free pattern you can try here.
Now, I think I'll go check on our hot cocoa supply for the winter. ;)
Have a great weekend, Y'all!


  1. Fall has for sure fell, Mum:D Them pies look awful good...I may have to go get some (cherry) pie fillin' from the store and make us a few...
    The blue looks really good in those mitts! It really lent itself to the pattern, didn't it? I think I'd have to grin a little at that potholder, myself:D

  2. Those fried pies sure look pretty !
    I like the way you have crimped the crust. My granny used to make those.
    Wish I had paid more attention to how she made fried pies.

  3. Mmmm, yummy-lookin' fried fruit pies, T. Those leaves look like what my mom used to call "wandering jew"...very pretty. I love your hot pad and fingerless gloves! Good job and my fav color :)

  4. Hello, I do not think there is any thing more beautiful to gaze upon than the foothills if the Smoky Mts in the Autumn. Lovely. I hope you will share more photos with us all as they continue to turn. Thanks. Hugs Judy

  5. Oh my do I want one of those fried pies, it looks sooooo good! I am also loving your beautiful pot holder and mitts. That is one lovely shade of blue!

    Happy Autumn to you and your family!



  6. That potholder is darling! I looked at the pattern on ravelry, and though those are really cute, I simply love the solid colored one you've done. I wish I could crochet a little in, enough to be able to follow a pattern.

    Thanks for your sweet welcome back comment on my blog today. :-)

    Oh, and those fried apple pies have me drooling on my keyboard.

  7. Love the mitts and the crocheted potholder! Happy Autumn!

  8. Oh, boy...fried pies!! My husband would love those :) I avoid frying anything at all costs. My boys gave me a mini deep fryer for Christmas. I've used it once ;)

    Love that potholder...looks like a giant mum :)
