Let's Get Crafty


The mornings have been cool and crisp and the afternoons sunny.
Fall is really on it's way.  For me ~ this is that "love my house" time of year.
I have been so content and happy to be cooking, and baking.  Yes I am 
really starting to love baking!  After all these years too.  So after the house is
all clean and tidy, and something is cooking on the stove or baking in the
oven ~ I want to stitch and crochet and get creative.




I was inspired to make another pincushion when I spotted this "Feeling Groovy"
hearts pattern by Riley Blake Designs.  Isn't it cute and so cheery too.



I could spend all day just playing and having fun like this.
Too bad I have to work!

Let's play hooky and go visit ~


Okay Bentley, let's get the laundry finished so we have the
entire weekend to have fun!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  12. Hi Susan and Ruff Ruff to Bentley - Yes, tomorrow is my play day I can't wait; I'm going to create some whimsical animals. I'm following you on Twitter and Pinterest and FB Page. I got my FB page up last week. Would love for us to follow each other; appreciate it so. Happy PS. I love to sew and pink is one of my favorite colors -- all pastels are.

  33. Love your pretty pincushion in the happy colors! It is always nice to sit and play hooky! I am afraid I did a lot of that this summer and now I am playing make up! It was worth it all, though!

  36. I am itching to get sewing again. I think I will try a pin cushion or two very soon. It seems it would be a very rewarding project that would not take too long. Thank you for the inspiration.
