Fall Pot Holder Sewing Pattern

Autumn brings the harvest in for our community and our home.  We spend hours each week in our own garden picking tomatoes, green beans and of course pumpkins.

Around town we watch the harvesters plow through corn and beans.  Or spend the evenings at the local orchard picking peaches and apples to send to families in need.

We also enjoy gleaning potatoes or fruit from leftover harvests to can or munch on for our own family.

Which means our kitchen gets a full on workout in the fall.  Canning, freezing and baking become a big part of our daily routine.  Counter space is sparse and windows are open 24 hours a day to keep the house cool.
