I thought I would catch you up a bit with what has been going on in my little part of the world. :)
Tonight was a wonderful night filled with carving the pumpkin and roasting the seeds. The weather is fantastic, nice and cool. I hope that it lasts a long time! We have our back door open and the breeze coming inside is absolutely delightful. I have been enjoying today, spending time with the family and working on my crochet. I did also take a nap! Love these sort of days :) Perhaps I shall have a cup of cocoa in a bit.
Here is our lovely pumpkin, who now has a darling face!
Earlier today, I received a package in the mail ...some charts I had been waiting on. I love them!
I did notice that Bless The Harvest Sampler does not have the letter "J" in the sampler. I did not see that when ordering it..I am assuming it is representative of how they did samplers years ago..leaving a letter or two out? Not sure..but I love the chart!
Not too long ago, I also received another small package from a family member up north. They are sending me things from my past..things that they thought I might like to have. I had forgotten all the things I used to do as a teenager, I guess I have always had a crafty side. Most people know I love dolls, especially Raggedies! I made these dolls from a pattern in a book from what I can recall..many years ago. I think I was about 12 years old when I made these little dollies :)
Another surprise in the mail was a chart from my dear sweet friend Kerribeth. She is always so good to me!
The chart is titled "My Favorite Things" and as you can see, spotlights my sweet dear Raggedy Ann doll. :)
I have been working on my crochet afghans this evening. While others finish their blankets in no time at all..I think mine will take years! I don't stick with one thing very long...
But, here they are..coming along, coming along!
Blue and white ripple:
And my 70's blanket...That's what my husband calls it..I call it kind of ugly..I don't like the colors I chose! But, I will keep on...it is really growing in size and will be very warm! This is a crochet Granny Stripe:
Blessings to you!
