Say that blog title 5 times fast!!
Although I hate to think about it, autumn is just around the corner. That means school, sweaters and Spiced Pumpkin Lattes. Oh yeah. Maybe fall isn't all that bad!
While searching for cute **free** crocheting patterns on the web a few weeks ago, I came across a pattern for this little guy:
Here's the link. Patons Yarns You have to sign up for a free account to access it, but I think he is totally worth it!
And what is he, you ask? He's a coffee cup cozy. You know-- you put him around your HOT takeout coffee to keep your hands from burning.
He took me less than 1/2 an hour to crochet and even less time to sew his parts together and add his face. And he was totally worth it!
Look how cute he is on my new porcelain "Union Jack" travel mug. Hubby bought it up for me while we were in the UK a few weeks ago. Isn't he a sweetie?
My "Limelight" hydrangeas are the stars of my garden right now. I cut several flower heads today and placed them into my "new" Crown mason jars. I found a ton of them recently in a second hand store for $1.00 a piece. Score!
And then I snapped some pics.
The flowers look lovely.
The light through the jars, equally so.
And you want to know the best part? Now that the kids have a playroom in the basement, they rarely hang out in the family room anymore. I can safely put jars of flowers on my coffee table and know that they will remain there. Hurray!
One last shot of the flowers, but this time with my latest knitting project. The knitting part is done- just the crocheted edging to go. I'll share the finished product in the next few days!
