Summertime blues

I love this simple scarf pattern by Joyful Abode.  You can make it as wide or as long as you want.  For this one I  crocheted 4 shells across and used up one skein of Cascade Pacific in multi #508 with a J hook and some cat hair from my sofa. (ha ha :) cat hair optional)  I'm thinking about making these for Christmas presents.  I know.  I said the C word.  Is it too early?

Around this time of year I just become tired of summer heat.  September is around the corner and that means fall decorating!!  My most favorite time of the year!  I love the colors, the crisp air, apples, pumpkins, walnuts, cinnamon, cider, falling leaves and tucking in the garden for the winter.  Outdoor chores slow down and I can spend the time sewing a quilt on my lap while a stew simmers and bread bakes.  Mmmmm. Can't wait.
Since the Pottery Barn catalog came yesterday displaying their Autumn goodness, that means we must be getting close!

I pulled out one little quilt from my closet in anticipation of the upcoming season....

Hurry Fall!  I lovelovelove you!


  1. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It leads straight into the holidays and beautiful snowy winters. My heart will probably sing from now until New Years Day and then only on days with plenty of snow after that haha. Love the scarf you made! What a lovely pattern!

  2. Hi Lynne. I've certainly been enjoying the cool nights on the deck this past week. It is a refreshing change. Wishing you a happy weekend.

  3. Lovely scarf! The yarn looks very smooshy and cuddly. And it is never too early for the C word. Bring on the holly and mistletoe!

    Also, am in love with your pillowcase project bag. Must do one right away. :)


You guys are awesome! Thank you for the comments!
