Twinkling snowman and raisins

Twinkling Snowman is now basted together so that I can spent bits of time here and there sewing it down.   I am pleased to get this far.

Remember the 4 gallon bucket of grapes we picked?   This is what they look like dehydratedAnd this is the total amount of raisins from a 4 gallon bucket of grapesThey are horrible to pick off the screen, so I’m hoping not to do any more of these this year or else find a better way to do them.

‘Strive for the Peace of Progress. Not Perfection”.  I found this on Busy Gal’s Homestead blog  this morning.  I have been thinking about it today realize that often I feel defeated because I don’t measure up to my own expectations.  The star I hitch to is way out there.  This summer has been so busy, I haven’t had a chance to get caught up.  I’m going to try to remember the progress made instead of how much is still to do.

    Your snowmen are adorable! I’m always amazed at how much fruit “shrinks” when it dries. Kudos to you for making your own raisins!
