Finish It Friday

Finished the September Crochet A Long in my Ravelry group. If you'd like to join us, it's not too late :)

I have only done the one so far, as I don't celebrate Halloween so the apple was the best choice for me.

Can't believe we're already IN September. Time is FLYING!

Happy Fall Y'all!

What's on your hook??~~Amy

Never Forget...

I was trying to think of something to write about today. Trying to find appropriate pictures. But I couldn't. It was difficult to look at them all, difficult to think about that horrifying day. So instead today I want to say, Thank You. Thank you to all the first responders, the service men and women, and the accidental heroes of that day. Thank you those who continue to this day to defend and protect us from terrorists and enemies. Let us not forget those who lost their lives and the families forever affected.

Never forget.

Getting Excited for Fall

Oh I can feel it....I can sense the change in the air...fall is coming. Today we had a cool front and it was a little taste of fall heading our way. Usually we get a few 'teases' of fall, so we could be in the upper 90's again next week, but I'm going to enjoy this weather while I can! We let the windows down, air out the house, and get outside!! We can suddenly enjoy a bike ride, swinging, playing outside, without feeling like we'll die of heat exhaustion. The heat down here truly is an entity of itself, an angry demon you don't mess with. You avoid it with air conditioning and wait it out.

Fall means Saints football is back, and although that makes me a football widow because my husband watches EVERY SINGLE GAME he can, I enjoy a good game. Fall means a chance to wear and use the crochet things I make! Fall means leaves changing, apples, pumpkins, Thanksgiving is soon! I LOVE FALL!!

So, I've got my windows down, yarn out and enjoying it!

Even my guinea pigs love the cool weather!

Enjoy it!!

August 2012 Photo Wrap Up

Well I don't have much to show for August, photography wise....I was so busy with work and pesky hurricanes...but I took a few, most of which you've seen. But I'm showing you again anyways :)

Hopefully September brings much more opportunities to photograph!

Here's to a safe, happy, fun September!

I Am Alive....

PHEW. Sorry I went MIA. First I went back to work (which should be ending soon!) and then we had good ol' Hurricane Isaac wreck havoc on us for a week or so. But we are back home, getting life back together. I have a lot of catching up to do at work, in the business and at home but we're here, safe and sound!

What's new in Mama World? Well, first off, HOW did it get to be SEPTEMBER?? I mean, whaaaat?

Secondly, YEAH ITS SEPTEMBER! That means cooler weather is coming, football and Thanksgiving is just two months away!! I love fall, however short it is here!

I've been trying to create at night after the day job is done, the kids are in bed and the man is occupied. I had hoped to be plunging full on into my business when school started, but this temporary job came up. I knew they needed my help and hey, who doesn't want a few extra coins? :)

So I've been crocheting at night, and FINALLY finished the Mario Granny Square blanket! It's so cute. I still have to edge it and back it with a cotton. Oh and tie off a gazillion strings...

Yes, each "pixel" is one 4 inch granny square. Yes, I am insane, thank you.

I also made this cute little weenie dog. The lovely Scotti at Inner Hooker found it and we could NOT find the pattern anywhere. (Though we truly wish the creator had written one, we SO would've bought it.) So I dabbled a bit with existing amigurumi patterns and came up with Andrew, the Weenie Dog :)

I'm tweaking the pattern more and making it easier and more consistent and working on that, slowly, surely.

I also finished up a pillow cover based on the Summer Garden pattern from Lucy of Attic24. It's lovely and is a great late summer addition to my house :)

What have you been up to? Make sure you do something every day that makes you smile!
