Wheelie Wednesday - Helping Mom Sew

Hi everybody! It's me, Autumn!Mom has been sewing for the last 2 weeks making curtains for our entire house to try and lock in the heat and keep us warmer this winter plus maybe conserve on the oil a wee bit more seeing as the prices are so much higher this year than last year!

She bought a whole bolt of white fabric and she heads upstairs to sew whenever she get a spare minute!
Mom is still unpacking boxes that gram sent and look what we found! Sewing machines - just my size! So I am sewing my tush off and helping mom all that I can! I like to be warm too!
We have the dining room all done and the family room is all done and now we're working on the bedroom windows! It's a lot of work so hopefully it'll work and save us lots of pennies this winter!The gardening chores are in full swing too! We've been hauling all of the garden ornaments out of the garden and storing them upstairs in the barn till next spring and pulling weeds and cutting back on all the plants! Pretty soon it'll be time to rake all of the leaves out of the gardens! This is autumn sedum! It's it just the most spectacular color?!I sure do love autumn! It's such a busy time of year but so rewarding!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

Great curtains! Your mom and you are very talented. That's very cool that you have your very own sewing machines! We love autumn too, but we sure hate what follows it!

Woof Maggie and Mitch,

Tell your Mom that the curtains are looking pawsome. Oh, our Mom just wants to know how your Mom keeps your house looking so neat and tidy. She's jealous of anyone who has both dogs and a clean house.

Those curtains look great! That's cool you have your own sewing machines in your size! Mom can't find curtains for our new house that she likes and wishes she had payed attention when her mom tired to teach her how to sew.
