Tonight we will be visited by our first cold temps this Fall season.  A big part of me is doing a happy dance because it means that finally the Fall colors will soon been gracing us with all their glory.  Oh how that makes me happy.  Just knowing that you can probably tell that a Fall stroll down by the river wasn't accomplished over the weekend because of all the green that was still gracing the trees.  Then there is a teeny tiny, itsy bitsy party of me that is sitting there going "great, the heater must be turned on".  That grump of an inner voice is trying to be ignored while we enjoy cuddling on the couch while watching movies and enjoying hot chocolate.

While waiting for this most wonderful season to finally make it's appearance, I've been trying to wrap up odd and end little projects so that I can get to a couple of really important ones.  One of the little projects are placemats for a friends Mum in England.  All that's left is sewing the binding to the back and give them a good wash so that they can start on their journey across the pond.
 I just love this little charm pack with all it's country, farmish charm.
 I've been also trying to figure out which soup recipe to share on Jodi's blog.  On the 7th of November she will be hosting a soup recipe sharing event so that you can have new soups to try this wonderfully, chilly season.  I can't wait to see all the different kinds everyone will share.  Hop over and join in.  Mark the date on your calendar!  You just can't go wrong with a ton of soup recipes.
 Speaking of important projects, this brown yarn sits patiently waiting for me to start on a few little things for a few little people in the family.  It's so important that the little people in the family look their absolute best during the changing seasons.  Especially chilly, breezy ones.  More on this by the end of the week.  Cross your fingers.
 And hopefully by the end of the week I will be enjoying a colorful walk amongst all the Fall color glory that I'm hoping this cold snap will bring tonight.  That way I don't have to keep looking at the photos taken last year just so I get my fix of Fall color.  Enough with the delay already.  Get here now!


  1. Kar, those placemats are absolutely beautiful! I've got a bum wrist right now so I'll just have to craft vicariously through you. lol

    That soup blog sounds like a winner too. You know I love my soups.

    Well, it's sleeptime for me, but I do wish you the onset of Fall!

  2. Love your placemats! Its starting to cool here a bit so I made soup the other night..Your soup looks yummy.. I love soup its comfort food.

  3. Thanks for the shout-out! The more the merrier -- if you can't decide which soup to make just make them all. Haha. I love the fabric you selected. That mum over in England is going to be thrilled with what you made her. We finally broke down and turned on the heat here -- and have had several fires in the fireplace. I heard SNOW for the weekend. Grrrr.
