Ready for Fall...

I finished the all important pumpkin hat for Connor.  It was such a pleasure to sit at the end of the night and work on such a cute knitting project.  The girls are going to bed earlier so they can get ready for early morning wake up's when our school schedule starts.  Love them dearly but it is so nice to have an hour or two of quiet time at the end of the day.
As I was finishing the leaf of the hat, the flood gates opened with tons of ideas of Fall projects flooding into my head.  It was a bit overwhelming.  So after the last stitch was weaved into the hat and snipped I started digging out all the fall fabric that I have stuffed away for the last few years.  Now I just have to figure out what fabric will be used for specific ideas running around my head.

I don't know about you but I'm so ready to bid farewell to the heat of summer and welcome with open arms the cooler, crisp air of Fall.  With all the warm temps lately I've not been so yippy skippy about cooking every night.  Quite pathetic really.  There have been alot of crock pot recipes lately.  To be very honest I'll be glad to get into all that warm and comfy cooking that Fall brings out.  Things will feel normal again.  

So heat be gone so that our beloved Fall can arrive in open arms.
I'll be more than happy to welcome it.
What about you?


  1. I totally agree Kar. I am so ready for fall. Your hat is so cute. And I bet it will be so warm too.

  2. Kar I agree also..It is miserable hot here. And FLorida's so called fall does not happen till late November..But Im ready...SOoo ready..Love the hat!

  3. Truly. I can not agree with you more about the heat bidding us farewell. :o) I look forward to conducting our school lessons on the front porch rather than tucked away in an air conditioned house.
    Your little pumpkin hat is just the very cutest! What a sweet little man Connor will be in his hat. :o)
    I can not wait to see what you decide to create with all your lovely fall fabrics. :o)
    Enjoy the rest of your week.
    Sincerely, Trish

  4. Hi Kar!! The pumpkin hat is precious!! Just love it! And I really am loving the summer, but a little coolness would be a delightful change!! I just don't do frigid cold...at all!!

    Hugs to you!

  5. While the weather been awfully warm and I do love fall, following that comes winter and you know how I HATE winter. I'll let summer last as long as it wants if it will shorten our horrible winters.

  6. Gosh, I am so not ready for Fall...I need just a couple more weeks of heat.

  7. That is so cute Kar. I'm with you I can't wait for fall to arrive. We have been having some cooler days 70's and the nights have been awesome!

  8. I will admit that Fall is my favorite season. :-)

    BTW, that's a pretty cute hat you made there. Go, Conner!

  9. Loving the little hat, Kar. And all that luscious fabric! I love fall but I am totally not a winter person.

  10. I am so ready for cooler weather! The hat is adorable!! There is a page on Facebook called Remember When Greenwood and I think of you often as I read the posts thinking how I wonder would you remember that, too! They have a few pictures.

  11. Goodness, gracious YES to Fall. I can't stand the heat and it actually feels great to have the kids back in college and school. It spells FREEDOM for me! And more craft time.
