a new appleturnover

my warm woolly wrist warmers knit by Elisa

Motherly pride is showing when I write how I’ve long enjoyed our daughter Elisa’s blog appleturnover since she started in the spring of 2006. As demands of family and an art practice grew, the blog waned at times, was revived and waned again.

This summer while visiting us at home here in Vancouver, away from their present home in London, UK, Elisa redesigned her blog and started it afresh, focusing even more on the natural, can we say old-fashioned, side of homemaking much like her grandmothers practiced and which skipped some of my generation. I never took to knitting myself and did not do much canning, preferring freezing. I used to do a lot of sewing and was challenged this summer to teach a bit of those now rusty skills such as hand-made buttonholes.

Do visit the new and beautiful appleturnover and say ‘hello’. Don’t miss reading her wonderful ‘about’ page. Enjoy!

P.S. In case you are a newer reader and have not made the acquaintance of the blogs of our other two daughters, here is Anita’s and here is Erika’s. Yes, I’m proud of all of them.

Added October 16th, 2010: If you are a knitter, you may be interested in a pattern for a similar pair of fingerless gloves that Elisa has made and posted on her blog.
