Happy Friday all!  I am overwhelmed with gratitude at the wonderful and positive response I've gotten about my first design, Baby Wren.  (In case you haven't picked up a copy yet, I'm offering it for free from my Ravelry store with coupon code LOVELYSEPTEMBER until Sunday at midnight!  Just use the above link, put the code in--you don't even have to be a member of Ravelry--and voila!)

Since Wednesday morning, nearly 4000 copies of the pattern have been downloaded!  It's just so exciting!  I can hardly wait to see project pages start popping up!  And (if you're familiar with Ravelry) my pattern even made the "Hot Right Now" List on the Pattern Search page.  Squeeee!

In honor of this, I'm also offering 15% off purchases from my Etsy store (this discount is on top of clearance prices too!).  The coupon code for that is BABYWREN3000
Check out my shop A Lovely Homemade Life.

In addition to all of that excitement, I've been doing a fair bit of canning this week.  Since Gala apples were a steal at the store I bought almost 13 lbs!  I've made two kinds of apple jam, plus apple core jelly and apple pie filling.  I'll share those recipes and some pics on Monday, so stop back by!

And today I made a 2nd batch of red pepper jelly.  Actually...a triple batch.  And bless her, Isla napped through the whole project!  She's learning to do so much!  Standing, cruising along furniture, climbing stairs, wrestling with Luca.  And he's been doing awesome at school!  I'm so glad that's he's enjoying it so much.  Love them!

Oh, and that project Michael is working on in the pic above?  I'll let you see that one of these Mondays too :)  Have a super weekend!  See you back on Monday.
