Where wuz I?

 

……Here I go again, trying to catch up once more with blogging and answers and comments….I’m sorry I did not manage to do that before, I know I’m sort of a chaotic, but life insists on getting on the way every time I think things are running smooth and coming back to the “normal” routine. But I’m NOT going to complain about it,  that’s life, isn’t it?…..

It is better to talk about nice things, like winning a lovely giveaway from René.  It was such a surprise to receive her mail telling me I had won her prize! Thank you so much, René! Please, visit her blog, she has lovely ideas and she will be very glad if you drop by!

Here is her gift:

A lovely pattern from Rosalie Quinlan with all the material included! It is so neat! The Lady bug is a pincushion and when she is not resting inside the bag, you can use the bag for your sewing things.

The black dots are yo-yos! A cute idea!

 

 

 

Before the chaos broke in (…) I was trying to finish some projects and I was also planning some new things for Fall. Well, I’m still on that stage.…Crocheting was something that I was able to do in the evenings, it helped to relax a little. On Sunday we had such a wonderful weather and that was the right time to take some pictures outside:

The colors of Fall, always warm and lovely!

I wrote I’d let you know about a visit to the Quilt shop.

Yeah, I did!

But yesterday!  A very short visit, to buy a little bit of batting,  thread,  some FQs, and new ideas.  That is the kind of remedy quilters always need, no doubt about it.

That’s all for the time being, I hope you can bear with me.

Wishing you lovely sewing days!

Congratulations on winning the giveaway! You have found such lovely autumn colours for your potholders. I hope we can keep you in blogland now.

Congratulations on your win. I just love how you displayed your potholders. Like Melanie, I thought they were leaves at first. Do you use cotton yarn? It's always nice seeing you pop up in my google reader.

Good to see you back. Cute giveaway.
I love your crocheting projects and you took some lovely photos of them. Looks like they should be in a craft magazine.
Well Suzie, it is always nice to hear from you :-)

So good to hear from you again ! Don't worry, life can be pretty hectic sometimes, isn't it the same for everybody !!!
Your potholders are really nice. I love the flowers in the background, reminds me of my trip to the garden center today... needed to change into something more "autumny".
Do you have a pattern for the potholders ? they seem pretty simple and I might want to start a collection ! It is true that crocheting is relaxing in the evening.
And congrats on winning the giveaway, the ladybugs are really cute !
Love the colours of your crocheted pot holders! Well done on the win. Have a great week - hope lfe settles down soon:)
