Paper Ladies September

September is here....and our lady this month is headed back to school. I have always loved the fall, because it seems I get my life put back together after the chaos of the summer months. We have been pretty busy these last few months with reunions, and traveling back and forth to see family. I love the quiet time that returns to me as the school year begins and we return to a schedule.

This sweet girl and I had some plans today.
....and despite my attempts to keep our plans afloat....

Checking in with a few Secrets...

It is that time of year are back in school, and it is always a bitter sweet time for me. I sure enjoy my kids, and miss them around the house. However, it is so nice to return to a schedule and the quiet too. It gives me lots of time to get some work done!

I cannot believe how fast this year has been flying by. I am going to be working on my cute September Paper Lady and I am determined to finish up this project from a while back by next week....but first I have to finish a secret project.

A day for crochet!

I have been busy this past week doing a bit of crochet. I made a little Lamb for Mary.
Then, I had to make a sister to MC....she is called MS....Midnight Sasha. She is to become MY traveling companion and fits perfectly next to the flower holder in my VW Bug. I used a vintage hat pattern  from the 1940's to make a new hat. It actually fit my head this time. I cross stitched the rose pattern on it in pink and red instead of purple. I think it is beautiful, and I can't wait for a chill to fill the air so that I can wear this little beanie. I love the combo of crochet and cross stitch, it is so pretty don't you think?

Inspired by LOVE....Crochet LOVE!

Crochet has long been a love of mine. I began crocheting seriously when I was about 12. I have a special connection to crochet animal toys..and this is why.....

 Does it get any more adorable than this?

WELL.... I don't think so! This little girl and her sweet big brother have been visiting this past week. She is the only one who has taken a shine to this monkey friend of mine.
