Cold weather arrived here at the Twin Cities much earlier than expected, and I needed something warm to keep my ears from freezing. I noticed a lot more ladies/girls around here wearing the cutest headband warmers, that I decided to make one for myself.
I found this pattern on Ravelry and it turned out to be so easy to make and most importantly...so darn cute!!!
So far I have made several head warmers in different colors and yarns.
I have to say that this one is my favorite! I love the color of the yarn and it's so soft and warm.
Last month I fell in love with these pumpkins and ended up making a set for myself using Priscilla's crochet pumpkin pattern.
My sister-in-law Jan love them at first site, and I gave her a set...then her Bunco group friends saw them and wanted them too!!!
So...this is the crochet pumpkin making mad dash marathon to meet those orders...
and more large pumpkins...
and small & medium pumpkins!!!
So now...Jan and I plan on making other fallish projects for sale at our local farmers market for next year...which means I better start working on this right after the holidays are over!!!
Jan deals with the business and customer service part of our new post retirement business venture, and I do the creative part of it...LOL!!!
See the little tricycle? Found it at a garage block sale for $3! It reminded me so much of my very own little tricycle...childhood memories. It belonged to the couples grown son.
Oops...I guess it's time to put the bunny away.
Mums are a sure sign of fall.
I found the blue pot at a garage sale for a mere $1!!!
My father-in-law's unfinished rocking chair and the chair on the steps, holding plants. The chairs have no seats and were collecting dust in the basement. So I thought how nice it would be to use them in the garden and hold plants.
I am simply in awe of its daily changes in color.
I picked up the 3 pots (I planted hostas) for free at a garage sale at the beginning of the summer.
This is my first experience of fall from beginning and hopefully to the end. Being from the Phoenix Valley, we simply don't experience anything like this.
Over the summer I worked on making a crochet edging for my late mother-in-law's vanity table.
I had never before done anything like this before. I would work on it, and put it away when I got tired of it, and then I would take it out and start crocheting again in hopes I would be done eventually!!!
I have been on a crochet marathon lately. I guess because I don't have any of my stamping/art supplies here in MN, I have turned to crochet and knitting. I am currently working, that is between 2-3 other on going projects, on an all pink afghan.
Being that it is a cloudy cool day with a chance of rain, I decided to make myself comfy and crochet my day away.
Dried hydrangeas in a pink vase.
I enjoyed drinking several cups of good hot coffee.
I'm so glad that you came to visit!! DH and I have been married for 28 years. Hubby and I are now retired and enjoying life. We winter in Sun City, AZ, & spend summers in Golden Valley, MN.
