Grape Jelly Please....

Good Evening Internet Friends!!

At LONGGGG last I have finally completed my #Kindness Knit Along Socks.  I likely would have completed these long ago had it not been for the "unfortunate" mountain bike incident of September 2017.  

Knitting speed and overall productivity still hampered by the wrist at times but tonight I finished the toe and grafted closed:

These socks are made with a full skein of Amethyst and a mini skein of Light Through the Leaves both of which I picked up at 4Paws Quilting & Knitting.

I call these socks my Grape Jelly socks because as soon as I saw the Amethyst that is what I thought of πŸ‡.  Plus, toast and jelly just might be one of my favourite foods 😸🍞.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

More FUN!

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Today was Day 2 of the Quilt Show.  I only attended part of it but still got to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

Right now I have no itinerary or plans for tomorrow other than sleeping in until kiddo and dog decided to stampede the house.  I have made this weeks Sharon's Scrap Sack Star Block so that I can post it now:

"Sew" Much Fun!!!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today I got to accompany my friend Sharon with 4Paws Quilting & Knitting to the Black Gold Quilt Patch Guild - Quilt Show 2017.  

It was "sew" much fun to see all the beautiful quilts and fibre art displays.  I think I was supposed to help but I had a jolly time meeting people and looking at all the wonderful quilt things available!!!

All set up!!!

This evening I am quite tired from all my socializing, but I did spend a wee bit of time in my craft room and made:

Another of the star blocks that should have been finished two years ago!!!πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰


Now possibly a bit of knitting before I fall asleep as I promised to go back tomorrow and meet more people!!!

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

"Sew" the joke still stands that I am one cat away from being the crazy cat lady.  As such, I had to have the latest book that Sharon brought in to 4Paws Quilting & Knitting.  This evening I spent some time in my craft room and made:

A Kitty Cat Hot pad!  🐈

Scrap Sack Star Block

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today was a really big deal of NOTHING!  Kiddo and I slept late.  Had a late brunch, finished reading the last of the Nicholas books.  We have thoroughly enjoyed reading these books and now I will be introducing my son to the comics by the author.

Later this afternoon we took the dog for a walk in the River Valley.  It was very beautiful but my lungs started to bother me.....

Since it is Sunday I also completed my 5th block of the Sharon's Scrap Sack Star Block hosted by 4Paws Quilting & Knitting:

I think I must still have pumpkin on my mind.....

I LOVE making these blocks because I feel validated when I get to dig through my scrap box and make something pretty from my scraps!

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

More Pumpkin....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Last night I baked the pumpkin so that I could have pumpkin for making pies today.  I ended up with 12+ cups of pumpkin mash so I decided to start using it up.

First off was breakfast where we had pumpkin oatmeal pancakes topped off with fresh raspberries and maple syrup.  Yum:

After breakfast it was time to prepare pie crusts for the pumpkin pie that I am taking to Thanksgiving Dinner this evening.

I discovered that I had no butter in the freezer.  No vegetable shortening decided to use canola oil that of course I do have to make pie crust:

Filled with the pumpkin pie filling and off to bake:

Surprisingly enough these crusts turned out amazing!  I will definitely be making this substitution again 😼

Dinner was being hosted by my friend and neighbour Sharon and since I did not have a hostess gift other than the pie.....I made a Thank You card:

Dinner was fabulous and I think turkey brain has homesteaded as I am super tired and it is not even late. πŸ˜΄πŸ›Œ

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Weekend.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well......I MADE IT to the weekend.  Somehow this was a very long week.

This evening after the roast beef dinner I made in the slow cooker while at work today I chose to spend a bit of time in my craft room.  Plus, I was baking a pumpkin so that I have pumpkin to make pie tomorrow:

With more than 12 cups of pumpkin here there might be a LOT of pumpkin baking happening around here.  

In my craft room I made another two Anne of Green Gables Christmas blocks with my fabric from 4Paws Quilting & Knitting:


Here's hoping I can get organized to make some more this weekend.
