I've lost it you say? Perhaps in many ways that's true right now! Selling a home in this crazy market is enough to lose your mind, but I assure you - so far my sanity is still intact! But I am planning for Halloween a tad early! I saw this new pattern of Meg Hawkey's a few days ago and had to have it - even if it doesn't get made for this Halloween. I just love stitcheries and those from the gals at Crabapple Hill are some of my favorites. I also love Halloween! Once we get to the Squash House I'll be doing it up big-time. I want the neighborhood children to enjoy Halloween as much as I did when I was a child! We have a great yard for it, too. Lots of big trees to hide ghosts in and Mr. Squash will make scary noises before he opens the door to the little ghosts and goblins! This stitchery may even be hanging on the door!
Check out this cool color chart I made for my Babette blanket. Terri convinced me I should show it to you. I converted my Cascade 220 colors and numbers to the pattern, got a piece of card stock, lettered each color and with a glue stick and a few inches of yarn I made myself a handy guide! I can already see that N and O are awfully close in color, so I may have to order another blue. If you haven't been over to Terri's blog to see her Babette progress, you must go have a look - it's beautiful!
While I was spending money on the internet the other day I decided to buy this book. Have you ever checked for a book on Amazon and gone to the ones that are "like-new" or "used" for a better price? I always buy those nowadays - I've never received one that says "like-new" that isn't in perfect condition and the saving are enormous!
Anyway, I saw this potholder on Laurraine's blog a while ago and absolutely adored it! There are so many cute potholder patterns in the book; I want to make them all!
I'm still working on my last Christmas in July Swap piece - as soon as I get a little farther I'll give you a peek!
