Hello from my mellow farmhouse in the Oregon countryside. I am taking a day off - to not think of anything whatsoever that I need to do. And do what I want. No worrying about appointments that need to be made, reports and agendas to write.. I'm just going to watch HGTV (Home and Garden TV) with one eye and crochet with my other eye. LOL! Hubby is happily sitting beside me checking his Facebook account and Kristi is feeding the boys lunch and doing laundry. It's cloudy outside which is fine by me. Bring it on. I'm thinking it's time to bring out the fall wreath for the back door and put some crocheted pumpkins on the table. But that can wait until tomorrow when it's officially September.
This is the pattern that my blog friend Meredith suggested to me. I didn't feel like working on it during the summer.. but now that tomorrow is Fall.. :-).. I worked on it while volunteering at Multnomah Falls and it's the perfect thing to work on this nice low-key cloudy day.
This is Blue Sky "Alpaca Silk" - 50% of each. It's a dream to work with - it's darker than in this photo.. a rich red. This is going to be quite something to wear near the holidays.. I might need to make a hat to match!
When the boy's girl cousins visited for 2 weeks, Caleb's Lemur that they won at the State Fair last year was a casualty. The head, body and tail were all torn apart. So, grandma did some re-stuffing and sewing...
I was happy to show Caleb his Lemur - but he proceeded to tell me that I stuffed it too much and it wasn't right. Hmmm... well, deal with it. LOL!
OK, back to crocheting.. when hubby and I get hungry for lunch we have Chinese leftovers. And life is good. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
