as our summer comes to a close, so do my summer ADVENTure projects. tomorrow the boys start school, and I begin a few weeks of adjusting. it happens to me every year. I can remember putting spencer on the bus for the first day of first grade, and the struggles that followed. ever since then, the first few weeks of school are quiet and somewhat lonely for me. so I've compiled quite a list of "to-do" ideas for those moments when the silence gets to be too much.
last week we visited the park for some sunny project photos and a bit of fun. the bit of fun starts it off...
and here's what I'll be adding to my ADVENTure collection:
*a few dishcloth additions using this pattern...
* cabled boot toppers for a boot lover on my list...
Pattern: Cabled Boot Toppers from Gifted by Mags Kandis
Size: One size
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, Color #4294- Turquoise Mix
Needles: US 6 dpn
I love these boot toppers! the pattern was easy to follow, but intricate enough to hold my attention. and those bobbles at the top....they're really fun to make!
* and Christmas pillowcases (by request) using Lisa's pattern...
tip of the month:
start thinking about December birthdays!
if you're like me, you probably have a few special people in your life who celebrate a birthday in December. and maybe (like me) the holidays end up grabbing all of your attention, and you end up behind in purchasing and delivering thoughtful birthday gifts. one of my goals this year is to have those gifts purchased and wrapped before December rolls around. this month you see a part of my niece's gift- a Happy Birthday pillowcase!
I hope september brings you scented candles, falling leaves, and creative projects that bless others as they bless you!
