Happy Weekend to you! We are enjoying a cozy warm day inside as our weather has finally turned to rain and clouds after a completely unusual 3+ months of sunny dry days. I snapped a photo of the pretty orange tulips that greeted us when we got home from our week away. The flowers were a gift from my friends Shirley & John, who took care of our house while we went to Ohio to visit our daughter, SIL and granddaughters. Wasn't that nice?The warm orangey tones of my fall tablescape make me happy.
Peeking out my back door looking at the grey and mist and checking on the chickens. The moss on the sheds is happy to have some moisture.
I took my shawl on the trip to finish and finally did! It was chilly in Ohio and that gave me the added incentive to finish so I could wear it around my neck over my leaf printed jacket, along with my orange and black velour hat I made years ago. I was definitely autumn colored while we went on our jaunts to the historic towns in Ohio. I love the lacy edging! You can get the pattern here: CLICK HERE
The yarn is Deborah Norville's Serenity Garden - color is "Gems". I ordered it online.
My favorite part of the shawl is the wide lacy edging.
I thought of making a hat to match the shawl and then I was over at Kris' blog - SIMPLIFY (CLICK HERE) and saw she is making these snuggly head bands/ear warmers so I thought I would try one and this is what I came up with. It's the lace pattern in my shawl with a crochet flower. I have shoulder length "silver" hair and put it up on my head with a barrette - this is a fun alternative to a hat as my "rooster tail" sticks up out of the top. LOL!
The shawl and headband.. pardon the clashing color of my turtleneck tee. I should have changed it!
Have you ever made a head band? It's a fast fun project.
I had to share this preschool photo of my granddaughter Paige. She's a darling child.When we were in Ohio and our daughter took us to a farm store, there was a tray of little painted pebbles - we got 2 for the girls, 1 a pumpkin and the other a ghost - this is mine. Dayle glued a pin on the back so I could wear it as a pin (which I'm doing right now). Isn't it cute?
Funny story.. we only have one chicken laying eggs so far, Buffy the Buff Orpington -- she didn't lay one egg while we were gone. Yesterday hubby comes in and brings in this egg - he's convinced they missed him. What do you think?
We're enjoying this fall weekend.. what are you up to? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
