Pioneer Day

What a great time we had at Pioneer Day.  The weather was cool but not too cold, just cold enough to bring out the wool sweaters : )

I was able to finish Livie’s longies (again) and making the thighs wider worked like a charm.  It took every second of spare time yesterday to rip out the legs and redo them in time but I am so glad that I was able to finish them because she was nice and toasty the entire day.

Livie was in love with this calf

I could have parked myself at this spinning wheel for a few hours

    I second that WOW! Looks like a fun and educational day. I wish we had Pioneer Day near here. That palmetto brush and the candle dipping looks like something I would like to do (and my kids too, of course!) 🙂
