Welcome to my little farm in the city.

This is a little blog about my life here on my little farm in the city. I am a wife, a mom, a grandma to 6 beautiful grandchildren. I live in a very small Mayberry like town in South Carolina . We live on the banks of a small river in the woods. I raise chickens and this year I really plan to try my hand at a small garden so that I can use the products for canning this year. It will be a venture since all we have is this lovely red clay that is hard as a brick, but I have high hopes. I am an avid knitter and crocheter and I love to work on new patterns that I find. You will probably find much of my work here as I finish it. Well thanks for stopping bye and please stop in often and stay as long as you like. Trudy

Oh my goodness what a summer for me !!

Wow  I had  NO  idea  it has  been soo long  since I have  been here.  So  much  has  happened  and I was  soo  busy  making  baby  girl  things  this  spring , I am the  very  proud  grandma  of  Alyssa Jean Effrick.  She  was  born  on August  19, 2012  in Michigan.  I  was  lucky  enough to be  able to fly  to Michigan  and spend  11 weeks  with my  daughter  and 2  beautiful granddaughters .  I had  not  seen  them  in over a year  and it  was  such  fun.  Plus  I was  there  to meet  my  3rd  beautiful granddaughter Alyssa.  She  is  also  named  for me , her middle name is  also mine.    This  is  Alyssa ,  and  Alexis  my  oldest  granddaughter .  


This  is  my  second  granddaughter  Gabrielle  she is  6  and  Alyssa  



And  of  course  there is  Miss Alyssa  who is  now  2  months old and  growing  so fast.


Before  Alyssa  came  I spent months  working on  little  girl  things and that is why  I have  not  been  here in so long .   I  had  so much fun learning how  to make  tiny little things  for  babies.    Here is a  pretty good  selection of  what  I made  minus  all the  things  I made while  I was in Michigan  for her but  this  gives you an idea what  I was  busy  with  .   


I also  had  made  her  3 blankets  and some  spit rags  and  a  Raggedy Ann and Andy  quilt  but  I guess I forgot  to take  a  picture.  

 Now  I am working on making her  a  pretty  Christmas  dress and  mittens  and  scarfs  for the  girls  since they have winter  and I do not   here in the  south .
