Did anyone say yarn? Oh yes, a little slice of yarn heaven here.

I splurged a bit and got these 100% bamboo yarn from a cute, little store called Ewe asked for it. The yarn collection in there is amazing. A little pricey, but great quality stuff. If only there was such a thing as a feel-o-monitor. You got to feel how incredibly soft this stuff is.

I didn't get a chance to hit the fabric store. Too many errands, too many visits. We did get to see the one and only Jeanie, the one that makes the awesome natural deodorants I mentioned a few months ago, well she's making natural lip balm too now. They're amazing! Go get some at the Royal Bison Bison Craft & Art Fair this weekend. She's going to be there with all her amazing stuff!

And the color of the day for today is Orange.

Tis the season for yummy mandarin and clementine oranges!

Dear fall,

Thank you for being so kind to us here!

Luv, Me

Fall walk

We are enjoying every second of this nice weather!

Tomorrow we head off to Edmonton to visit family, friends, and to do a lot of shopping. I am so excited to replenish my fabric and yarn supply/addiction. It's been way too long!

To those that been asking for patterns for my crochet baby hats. Thanks so much for the interest. I will definitely try to post one up when I have some time. I have never written a pattern so it shall be quite interesting.

It's almost 1 am. Off to dream a little dream.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Crochet ear flap hat

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Last few days I've been working on some more crochet baby hats for photographers. I knew ear flap hats were a must. There are some pretty cute ones out there and I had to at least try to do my own version.

I am definitely making a bigger one for myself this winter!

The spell of the pumpkin

Saturday, November 7, 2009

I think fall is absolutely beautiful. The leaves all turn orangy-yellow-brown, the crisp cool air, harvest of farming fields and gardens.

I was talking to my friend Michele last week about how the smell of pumpkins brings me back my childhood memories of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all those wonderful things that fall into fall. For me, you can't have fall without pumpkins or maybe it's you can't have pumpkin without fall. Whatever it is, thank goodness for pumpkin pies!! Ha ha!

Happy weekend!
