Fall is in the air!

Fall is in the air and I love it! It's my favorite time of year. I love the color in the trees and the crispy air. To celebrate Fall, I crocheted this very cute little pumpkin hat.

I don't do much crocheting but every now and then I get the urge. I think it was one of the first crafts I learned how to do. My Grandmother crocheted and she taught me. She couldn't read patterns and did everything from memory. Good thing I can read patterns cuz I can't remember sh&^*&^&! The one nice thing about crocheting is that you can complete a project quickly. I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino for this project. I couldn't decide between this shade of orange and another that was available so I bought both. Stay tuned for Pumpkin Hat part II.

The Mystery Block of the Month IV arrived last Friday and I got right to work. I'm happy to say it's done. Very pretty.

I think I'll take a picture of them together once I get six done to get a feel for what the finished quilt will look like. Till next time...

Quick "Hello"

I've actually got 2 really great, nearly finished projects to show you but I'm worried that the recipients might see them and guess that they are for them. I'm pretty caught up with my sewing projects and of course I'm looking for a new one. My current purse is getting a little worn so I thought I'd make a new one. I've decided on an Amy Butler pattern...The Madison, and some of her fabric from the Nigella collection. I like the weight of this fabric. It's a bit heavier and great for bags.

My fourth Mystery Block of the Month should be in any day. Good timing. I'll be able to get right to it and stay on schedule. Oh yea, I also finished one more block from my Anna Maria Horner Garden Party quilt. Three done and 6 to go! These block are big. 17 inches x 17 inches and they have a lot of little pieces. I'm trying to make at least one between other projects so that it will get done this year. I'll get some sashing and backing fabric once all the blocks are done and put together.

A Bowl of Key Fobs!

They are done. Can you say "HalleluYah"! I made 50 of them. Actually, it was not bad at all. I set up a mini assembly line for myself and got to work. Take a gander...aren't they pretty?

On another note...there's a new blog in town. Introducing Nicole! Good job Nicole. She's very talented and does just about everything. SO, if you like crafting you should check it out. You won't be disappointed. :)
Gotta go now. Miss L needs to go out.
