Farewell to 2012

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
2012
 
It has been a wonderful, busy year! I started out with huge plans for my blog. Unfortunately, my job got in the way with so much overtime and scheduled Saturdays.
I kept up with all of my favorite blogs, lost myself on Facebook, Flickr and Pinterest  and YouTube.  Then I sewed like a Madman on the last two weeks before Christmas!!!!!
This upcoming year is once again full of determination to be a better planner of my blog and my spare time!
Looking forward to 2013,
Love PJ

Honeysuckle Fills the Air

Honeysuckle beside the front porch.
 
I love the scent of honeysuckle and the delicate yellow and white petals.
Soon Jack Frost will whisper his icy breath across the meadow, turning everything a frosty golden hue. We will wake up to shimmering, frozen dew, pull on our sweaters, OR, we can stay in our flannel jammies and snuggle deeply under a comfy quilt!
Fall colors are so amazing! They change from day to day, becoming so brilliant - until the winds whirl them from our reach.



         A view form my porch.

 

 It's only the last day of September. I have been into crocheting afghans and bedskirts for the house.

Vintage Baby Booties

I found the cutest baby booties at an antique shop. They have the tiniest crochet stitches.
I can imagine a sweet expectant mother taking the time to create such delicate stitches for her baby's layette.
Crochet, sewing and quilting are not the lost arts, they are the Fine Arts that we create with our hands and hearts!

crochet coffee cozy

More crocheted fun! This is a cozy for my coffee cup. I guess crocheting is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
I found the pattern online by Paton yarn. This could make a cute holder for party favors.

A downpour going on outside. I didn't make it out of the sewing room! Four blocks made, five more to go. Nine blocks for "9 Lives".

A nice day for sewing, it's raining off and on today. If it clears up, we might go to one of the many festivals around here!
