The Hummers are gone

I guess fall is really here, the humming birds are almost all gone.  There are only a couple left.  One female sits on top of the feeder and chases away any that come to to eat.  I have not mixed up new food for three days now because they are not eating much.  I think the males have all gone and just a few females or young ones are left but they will be back next year and ready to raise another brood of little ones.

Today I finished up this first set of pants for James and Colby.  Photo on 9-22-14 at 4.01 PM

I did not have enough material to make two of each color but I did get two of the blue ones.  I made them each a pair of shorts this summer and now they have longer pants and these are in a flannel with the same print.  these are all cargo pants, that means they have two large pockets in front and to smaller ones in back.  The red ones don’t have back pockets as there wasn’t enough material.  Today I cut out two pants and two shirts.  The pants are in navy blue and the shirts are a spider print  with navy blue sleeves, collar and pocket.  I also finished the Baby Doll PJs for Dyhanna.Photo on 9-22-14 at 3.59 PM



This is done in muslin and has the bloomers as you see under the short jacket top.  I think it came out cute.  I am finally learning how to make button holes.  Tomrrow I will cut out another dress for Dyhanna and Prem.  Have a great day.


About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
