I've spent a lot of time this week getting back into a sewing routine and getting ready for the HandmadeMN Fall Market that I will be part of tomorrow. Above are a few of the new aprons I have been working on. I'm looking forward to spending the day meeting other crafters and sharing my work with a new audience.
I haven't made anything new in the kitchen lately but I did make this pumpkin cake into delightfully spiced cupcakes.
Have you read this article about parts of the world where people live longer and some of the reasons why? While longevity is not necessarily a focus of mine, I was inspired by the simple and beautiful life they live. There are many elements of their healthy lifestyle, like a relaxed pace, good food, and community that I want to continue to incorporate more in my life.
Just a few thoughts from this week. Have a good weekend and if you're looking for something to do in Minneapolis, be sure to stop by the market.
