Who We Are

The past few years, the area where I live, Crawford County, Ohio, has seen a wonderful explosion of younger families who are embracing the joys and challenges of living off the land. Because of them, amazing things are happening which have been embraced by our community. Farmer’s markets have been created and on-farm stores have opened. Families dedicated to growing organic produce and naturally raised meats are meeting the public’s needs for locally raised foods. And at the heart of this movement are the women.

Ohio Country Journal is my attempt to share the essence of farm life, focusing on, but not limited to, women. My goal is to bring you into our circle of friendship by inviting you to share your stories and experiences with us. You don’t have to be a full time country woman to benefit from joining us; you just have to be you.

The full-time country women featured in Ohio Country Journal are an inspiration to anyone who dares to follow her dreams, whether it is to live in the country or to bring the country life-style to their urban neighborhoods.

Ava's Fashion Shoot

In between going to weekend country festivals, I was able to get the "trial" sundress/jumper done for Ava. Of course, I don't really like to spend our time together in the sewing room, especially when the weather is as wonderful as it has been the past few days, but I wanted to be sure about pattern size so that I can make other garments for her without worrying that they will be too small.

Even with her here, the dress turned out a bit too big. But I think it is OK...if made into a winter fabric, there is plenty of room for a blouse or knit top underneath.

Ava added the leggings for a "touch of fashion".  Ava loves her new sundress, so we did several poses outside for her to print out for her fashion scrapbook. :)

She goes home today. It has been a fun five days filled with lots of activity. And our adventure is not quite over yet...we plan to stop at the boardwalk in Galena on the way home to check out the Osprey platforms. Maybe we'll see some of those majestic birds!
