Reasons to love autumn/fall:
Not so bloody hot.
Nights are cool.
Evenings are drawing in.
Socks and sweaters.
Friends can come over and not die of heat exhaustion.
Long walks outdoors without burning up.
I could go on. I think September might be my favourite month.
I’ve made a few things in the last week. Some have been for work. I brought home a preprinted cotton panel and sewed up these trick or treat bags. After I hung them up at work, the fabric sold in a flash.
Today I sewed these stockings from another panel and will take them to the store tomorrow for display.
The sewing pattern I mentioned last time has now been transformed into this:
It looks a bit disproportionate because it’s on a decorative mannequin which is way smaller than I am. But this one will return to me for keepsies once it’s hung at the store for a month.
From the pile of yarn I showed you in my last post, I made these:
A beanie of my own design and a teeny elephant https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amigurumi-elephant-25
To accompany these little gifts all the way over the Atlantic I cross-stitched another elephant and glued it to a card.
And from a <ahem> yarn purchase at work because it went on clearance, I have started crocheting dishcloths with a scrubby centre like the ones I made a while back. They are great in the kitchen.
I hope you too are enjoying the season you’re in and finding ways to get out of your head and into your hands, as Kate from The Last Homely House says!
