It’s very overcast today, a little breezy and 60 degrees, drizzling. It was supposed to get up to 75, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. It’s just lovely! I’ve even seen a little glimpse of fall colors around town already… Love it, love it! The pups and I even enjoyed the cool weather with a cup of coffee out on the deck this morning… Here they are, enjoying the outdoors:
I thought about stopping at the coffee shop downtown this morning, but came to the conclusion that if it isn’t Starbucks, it probably isn’t worth the money… Yes, my husband has made me a complete coffee snob! The pups are really glad I came home for coffee, anyway!
It’s Bee’s sweater…completed! Well almost completed. You knit the collar as you sew it together, which is what I’m going to do with my mother, in Colorado this weekend. I can’t wait to get this puppy off my needles and on that boy! I already have big plans for wearing this to the pumpkin patch! (Yep, I’m already considering what the boys should wear for pictures to match my scrapbook paper! lol )
I’m going to get Rachael out of storage and start on her now… Do you even remember Rachael? She’s a lace shawl that I began last summer…my first big knitting project. I want to finish her up, so that I can wear it this fall. Also started another pair of socks. Made out of the Knitpicks yarn that I bought for my fair isle socks that…um…didn’t quite work out… I’m putting these on the back burner for now and plan to finish them up during Sockoberfest! Gonna double strand the heel and toe and hopefully have a really comfy, durable pair of hand knit socks…we’ll see…
This first layout was created by Nicki for our page swap. All I had to do was add journaling and finishing touches. Love doing page swaps! Nicki is a very talented scrapbooker too… She needs to do many more pages for me! lol
This second one is mine. Done for Challenge #3 that Belinda sent me. The topic was "The Place You Call Home". When I realized all my "home" stuff was the house in Iowa, I decided that I had to participate in this challenge. This layout is based on a design by Nisa Finn, but tweaked quite a bit.
So many tomatoes, so little time…
