Playing With Yarn & Colors ~ A Freeform Collage

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Are you enjoying the brilliant colors Mother Nature uses to paint the trees around us this time of year?

Every morning, while walking the dogs, I see more and more patches of reds and yellows pop up 😍

And some wonderful people have been sharing their Fall pictures on Facebook

Glorious…isn’t it?! I wanna jump right in! Don’t you? 😁

Seeing all these photos sparked an idea = Freeform Collage!

I’ve been trying my hand at Freeform Crochet Scrumbles, and am loving it!

So I got all my Fall-Color yarn out and went to town…no plan, just a picture in my mind.

Luckily I had the perfect yarn in my stash. πŸ˜ƒ

Like this one here – Fall colors in a skein…

And this beautiful handspun wool

And of course many more, but these two really stand out. πŸ™‚

And inch by inch it grew

Glorious Autumn – A Freeform Collage

It’s so much fun to play with the colors and different stitches.

Please watch for updates, and see the lake, sky, and more trees appear πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ

Do you think Freeform is for you? You should try it sometime – once in a while it’s good to let the crazy child inside you create πŸ™ƒ

Have fun! πŸ’•

Last Week At A Glance πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Funny story…funny, weird – you decide 😁

Two, three nights ago I dreamt about this very post. I dreamt the title, that I wrote it, the pictures were there. It was so vivid, that I honestly thought it was done.

And I was a little bit sad 😒 that no one liked it!

So today, while scrolling through all your wonderful posts, I wondered where my ‘Glance at last week’ disappeared to.

Well, you know the end of that story. πŸ˜†

So…without further ado – here it is (I hope πŸ˜‰)

Monday…

I finished writing the pattern for my next workshop. It’ll be a ‘Lacy Scarf’. I decided to introduce three different stitches that make a gorgeous lace pattern.

See…

Tuesday…

Michele (my partner in crime) and I met to set the date and talk about the details. We agreed on everything, so that was done fast 😁 and we got to enjoy our lunch while visiting with our friend Lili 😍

We forgot to take a picture…so I give you this. Just pretend it’s us πŸ˜†

Wednesday…

I decided I need new sneakers. That’s easier said than done…ugh! I must’ve tried on every pair in the store. A big shoutout to my friend Carole – she was very patient. 😊

Just as I was about to give up, I spotted a pair -in my size!!! – at the bottom of the clearance shelf. And they fit, and are very comfy! Score! 😎

One question remains though…why do all ‘Asics’ in 3 different sizes (6.5, 7, 7.5) fit the exact same way? Just a tad too small πŸ˜• It’s quite puzzling.

Then, of course…Lunch! πŸ˜† Good thing I only eat salads 😜

Thursday…

Just an ordinary day πŸ™‚ Dog walking, ‘breaking in the sneakers’ speed walking, and – no, not lunch 😁 – grocery shopping.

I finished the picot edging on the last sample scarf while watching the latest ‘ Garage Sale Mystery’. Those are so much fun! Do you watch?

The workshop flyer! I almost forgot to tell you about the flyer.

Here it is…

We have a few places in mind where we could distribute them…wish us luck 😊

Friday…

Started as a pretty normal day…until the kitchen sink clogged up. ☹️ Without warning- it just didn’t wanna anymore. Pffft

And nothing worked. We plunged, and poked the clog with wire. I even bent a wire hanger out of shape…nothing. Snake wouldn’t fit. Drano didn’t do diddlysquat.

Just as we were about to call someone, hubby poked it again…and there it went. Whatever it was – it’s gone.

I did get a little bit of crocheting done. I started to look into Freeform Crochet 😍

It is so much fun. Pretty perfect for yours truly! 😁 Last years Puzzle Poncho had a few elements in it, now I did a sampler of different Scrumbles

Very promising! Don’t you think?

Saturday…

…is Farmers Market Day! Michele has a table at one close by. She sells her son’s wonderful artisan breads, and had the great idea to make a little display for our workshop.

Looks great! Doesn’t it? I would wanna sign up 😁

Sunday…

After a yummy lunch at the Casino Buffet, hubby went to poker and I played with Freeform Designs 😍

I’m really loving it! ☺️

That’s all! Overall a pretty good week I’d say. πŸ’ƒπŸ»

I’m sending you Smiles πŸ™‚ Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’— for a wonderful week!
