Fall is my favourite time of year.  It makes you want to pull out that yarn and make something, anything just so long as it's on your hook.  Yesterday was I Love Yarn day and I only bought one ball of yarn, black to finish off the shrug I've been working on.  I just have to fit it to the person it's for and finish off with the fancy black I got for the edging.  I did manage to make a little pumpkin in between.  

Today honey and I went for a lovely nature walk.  It was a bit on the cool side but I don't mind when I get these cuties landing in my hand. 

The Vegan thing has been going well.  I've noticed some changes in the fit of clothing and digestion.
I bought my first Vegan face product today at LUSH.  Most of their products are Vegan friendly but the only thing is they are a bit pricey.  I don't mind considering how their made and recyclable container and all. Has anyone else tried LUSH products and if so what one are your favourites?
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Hello Fall

The cooler weather always makes you want to pull out the yarn and start something, anything.  
So I pulled out this chunky yarn to make my Pippa girl a little blanket.

She has this spot on the pads she sleeps but she needs a cute pink blanket. 
She's been a great addition to our home but still miss Marma everyday.

The last few weeks honey and I have been on a similar shift to be able to take him to work as my old car has seen it's days.  When you start to have to put so  much money in it than it's worth it's time.
So we have been out in search of a newer reliable car to hopefully last us a long time.  After reading about the most reliable cars on the net, Honda was always near the top.  Of course my old car is a 22 year hold Honda so we know how reliable they can be for a long time.
Last weekend we found it, a three year old Civic with only 13,400 kilometres on it. Almost too good to be true but an elderly person had it before and clearly barely drove it. 

After driving an older car for so long it seems weird. 

Maybe now we can go back to our usual routine and I can get back into crochet, knitting and sewing more.  That is after my thumb has healed from near cutting the end of it off preparing a meal and using a mandala. 
The Vegan diet has been going well.  I'm down 6lbs and feel good. 

Well happy weekend all!!!!
