Mad about hats...

I had to show off the new hat I got at the Queen Bee Market. I love the mustard color. I wish I could knit!

Here is my Mom modeling an Emily Sparks Scarf
Just got home from the Queen Bee Market! So much fun. It was wonderful to be able to see hand crafted talents in San Diego. I was able to get a few Christmas gifts and something for myself. I had to use a lot of restraint and not spend to much. I got some pretty red rose earrings from I also got a lovely beret from All other purchases will have to remain a secret till Christmas.

Fall apron

So excited! I finished my fall apron. It fits just right and the ties in the back aren't to long. The pattern called for 2 pockets but I opted for just one. The pocket is the perfect size to tuck my blackberry away while I'm cooking. The pattern I used is Simplicity 3670. Its a great pattern for beginners and it comes with 2 apron patterns!

I started my Fall apron! Here is the pocket. I found a very simple pattern at Walmart. I got the fabric from Rosie's quilt shop in La Mesa.

Love it!

This is one of my favorite things! Whenever I catch F.W reading it makes my heart swell with joy and pride. I am so happy he loves to read. The boys have always enjoyed a good book but giving up TV really got them reading even more. F.W. loves Percy Jackson

Coffee Cozy

I've been a crumby blogger and I am playing catch up today. The month of October I have been working on these coffee cozies for a baby shower. I finished 35 fantastic coffee cozies. I used flannel receiving blankets to make them. The flannel is really thick so that was a bit of a challenge.


Laura's party table
So many goodies


Halloween being on a Sunday was fun. It was like a 3 day Halloween celebration. My sister had a great Halloeeen party for all her nephews. I didn't do home made costumes for the kids this year. However they did reuse the trick or treat bags I made for them last year. I'll find any reason to wear a wig.

X-Mas already??

"Get a head start on Christmas" That's what I saw when I clicked on for my moment of zen. Seems like Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year! Day before Halloween and Target already had fake trees adorn with ornaments sheesh!
