It's surprising how the new seasons creep in on you when you still trying to let go of the last.  But each year as fall comes, I realize how much I love fall. And that Christmas isn't far off so I better get working on Xmas project gifts.  I have been doing some sewing projects. I'm not completely going to show them so the ones I'll be giving them to won't be surprised. 
I've been working on a Lucy bag here for my aunt for a few years now. Well it's coming up to be her 60th next month so I am trying to get it done for that.

Working on some African flowers for the Happy Hippo. I'm sure that may get completed some time next year. LOL

Stash busting to make some hat, tis the season. I may change the flower because once it's on the head it's HUGE. Chunky yarn flowers don't work on chunky yarn hats. 

And finished my granny square tree. 

Here's a fun thing going around on Instagram. 
What would your name be?

Mine- Mystery Crochet Hexagons To Die For.

Happy weekend all!

Happy Yarn Day

Yesterday was International I Love Yarn Day.  It would be nice if such days fell on a weekend to really be able to enjoy yarny things.  

This is my morning crafty scene.  Cup of Joe via Hello Kitty mug. A new project underway.  Clearly Christmas themed. 

Received a gorgeous pack of fabric this week from E-bay. I am becoming a fabric junky too.  Now the next step is to get making things with them.

My honey was eyeing a mug online that he had as a kid. Vintage Yogi Bear cup.
I found one on E-bay and put a bid in and I got it.  It's a bit pricey for an old mug but you pay for nostalgia I guess.
Not in perfect shape but better than another one I found online. 
I hope he likes it. 

It's getting cooler and I got out my ripple blanket I finished last year.

I love it, makes me want to make another. LOL

And for those fellow Canadians, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
It is on Monday for us. I volunteered to work it. 
Honey and I were invited out to my aunts for dinner today.  Yum

October Already

I can't believe it's October already.  It still feels like the end of summer. 
But the leaves have been changing.  I do love Fall. 
This week I finished this little owl by request of my good friend for her daughter.

Got a few new things, this resin Snowman from the thrift store. I may paint his coat and hat.  A hexie template to help in cutting material to size for the hexagons. And another nice fabric, should make for a nice lining in something.

I haven't got much progress on the circular ripple.

Happy weekend all!
