Will You Take A Walk With Me? πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸŒ³

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Lansing, KS is not your typical pretty ‘Small-Town-America’. But in the Fall it turns into a canvas for Mother Nature most beautiful work. 😍

It’s a sunny, crisp morning, so I took my camera with me on my daily walk.

Here are some pictures of the delightful sights I’m lucky enough to see every day 😊

Straight out the door stands this beauty

These pictures speak for themselves

There’s a little frost on the ground

As the sun went higher, more and more colors came to life

The little creek was really flowing after the rains two weeks ago. Now…not so much

Sunshine and a little green fairy πŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

This one made me chuckle πŸ˜„

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll 🍁

Do you have a lot of Fall colors in your neck of the woods? Let me know…I’d love to hear/see what’s outside your door! πŸ’•

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’•

Like A Butterfly πŸ¦‹

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

You’re probably wondering about the title of this post πŸ€”

Let me explain…that’s how I feel these days – like a butterfly flitting from task to task. Somehow I can’t sit still for any length of time. I’m always thinking about things I wanna/gotta do. And it’s never the one thing I’m doing right then and there. πŸ™ƒ

Do you know what I mean? Do you have times like that?

Things that did get done

-I did clean up baskets in my ‘Yarn-Room’. But only because the new winder called me in there. 😁

-I did go on a few walks this week. My friend Carole and I are taking advantage of the glorious weather – morning temperatures in the 40s is quite a change from last week, but we’re enjoying the sunshine that comes with it, and the fact that we’re not damp after one mile 😝

-Some yard work – The ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush that was out of control is no more. Normally I don’t like cutting down Flora that’s healthy and growing. But this bush didn’t seem to be doing too well. It was still green and growing, but the leaves were very small, and the buds wouldn’t open to all their glory. So the clippers came out…this is what’s left

It’s hard to believe that, just a few years ago, this was a spindly, little twig with a few short roots.

The trim should give it new life…we’ll see next year. 😊

While I was outside with my camera I noticed the sun hitting this beauty just right

Doesn’t it look like it’s glowing? 😍

We have the first red leaves in the yard! The Maple ‘volunteer’ in the flower pot wants to be the first one to announce that ‘Fall is here’ 🍁

The dogs enjoyed the time we spent outside πŸ’•

-Carpet steps are (finally) clean πŸ˜ƒ

Ever since we moved in I’ve had this problem with dingy steps, well – just the edges. Because our Lorelai (the white one ⬆️) is very low to the ground, so her belly gets a bit dirty walking around outside. It doesn’t help that she loves to lay down in the grass, pull herself forward, all around the yard πŸ˜†

Then she comes in, cleaning her belly on the steps 😝

I’ve tried every commercial product under the sun…nothing would get these edges clean. But now – thank you, Pinterest! – they’re clean…and it’s not the different lighting πŸ˜†

before

It’s a miracle! I’ll tell you what did it…

3/4 cup Hydrogen Peroxide

2 teaspoons baking soda

1squirt of Dawn

Mix it well, dab, then scrub, onto the stain. Done!

Happy Tina here! πŸ˜ƒ

-Crocheting

By the end of every day I kick back in front of the TV and add rows to ‘Georgia Mae’s Flower Patch’ 😍 Yes, the plan to make it a Crochet-Along is still solid. I’m taking pattern-notes, and hope to have Part I up by this weekend!

-I guess now I can add this blog-post to my list of things done 😁

I hope you are enjoying a sunny, creative, and beautiful day! πŸ’•

WIP ~ Wednesday – A Flowery Blanket πŸŒΈ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today I only have one WIP to write about…that doesn’t mean there’s only one floating around 😁 but this one is taking the #1 spot right now. It’s a blanket for our grandbaby, due in January 😍

The blanket is called ‘Georgia Mae’s Flower Patch’ πŸŒΈπŸ’•πŸŒΈ named after the wee one, and because flowers and an abundance of colors are the perfect way to say ‘ Welcome to the world, Baby Girl’ 😊

Here’s the beginning of the ‘Patch’…

As I was stitching I had an idea! I’m gonna make this a ‘Crochet Along’ πŸ˜ƒ

What do you think?

I’ve been taking notes, and Part I should be up and ready for you by the weekend.

I hope you all crochet along, and help me welcome Georgia Mae to this beautiful world!

I’ll be back soon…and looking for ya 😁

Until then πŸ’•
