I just bought this cute little screen printed patch at an adorable little store in Eugene called Nest and I am trying to figure out what I am to make with it...
Isn't it great? I am just in love owls lately!
Also, I have had this great fabric for a while but just can't decide to make out of it. I just love it though!
It is so funny to me. The lighting makes the colors a little subdued, but it has very vibrant colors, and I love the little trains and submarines! I have about a yard....and I just can't decide how best to use it. Any thoughts?

The weather is definitely cooling off! I can say that I am not ready for it, but I am also excited about crafts that the winter brings. I am working on my Christmas list, and already seem to feel behind, hehe.
And since it is cooling off, I am getting myself ready for the cooler weather. I have started making some little ankle warmers. This is one of the first patterns I tried, before I took the leap to double pointed needles and knitting in the round. It is a simple rib stitch and then you just seam up the side.
I have also been working on a new knitted purse. Pics to come soon!

So about a month and a half ago I decided to get my creative juices flowing and make a new skirt from fabric I had in the house. I am finally getting around to posting it, but I did get a few occasions to wear it when it was still warm enough. And with any luck, I can wear it a time or two more!
I found this material in my scraps and can't remember where I got it. But it was great for panels for this skirt!
Working on my machine from Ric's grandma. :)
Finishing touch of cute little lace at the bottom.
Ta da! I love it! Although I have to watch it when it gets windy out...a little Marilyn Monroe action....
