Last weekend my church sponsored the organization WorldCrafts by allowing the group to sell some of their items in our building.

Here  are a couple of video's about the organization:

I think this is a wonderful way to help families all over the world. God bless these artisans and the ones helping them sell their work.

Some new totes...

These are the totes I finished. I just need to add linings to the both of them & they will be complete. I love the colors. My plan is to sell the hexagon market bag. I am still not sure if I will sell the chevron bag yet.
I hope you all have a wonderful & blessed day!

p.s. You can find both of these patterns on Lion Brand Yarn's website.

Photography for the week

Made from scratch chocolate cookies, a rainbow tote bag in the works, my brother, Jordan's, doodles on his math notes & Owen, our maltipoo, waking up this morning; these are just a few things I have enjoyed this week. Hopefully there will be a lot more to enjoy this weekend.
I hope you enjoy your weekend.
God Bless,

cross stitch cowl

 I finished my cowl the other day. When I awoke this morning I was happy to feel enough chill in the air that would justify wearing it today.
I used Vanna's choice Dusty Green acrylic yarn. I really happy with how this yarn worked with the crossed double crochet stitch.

Enjoy the Fall season!
God bless you,

Granny Square Afghan Progress

I am getting excited! I am planning on making the afghan 11x7 squares.  I still haven't decided whether I will try and sell this or keep it for myself :)

Fingerless Mittens

I am loving my new fingerless mittens! They are so pretty and colorful. I plan on listing them on my Etsy Store as soon as I get it up and running. I got the pattern out of the book Crochet Designs: 25 must-have items to make by Tess Dawson.

The quintessential "holding a mug with mittens" pose

I can't wait to start wearing some of my crochet items, but it is still pretty warm in North Carolina. Bummer :( But when I checked, the prediction was that some Autumn-like weather is on its way.

Double crochet cross stitch

I have started what I think will be a cowl. I have some left over Vanna's Choice, and was looking through my patterns and stitches books and have decided to go with this double crochet cross stitch.

This was taken quickly with my phone, so apologies for the poor quality.
I'll be taken some better photos with my camera.

I hope you are having a blessed day!

I woke up to a cool, rainy day this morning. I am excited about the season change. One thing about living in this part of the south east is that our autumn is very mild or nonexistent. We can have hot weather until November, then when the weather is mild enough to enjoy, all of the beautiful leafs have fallen and all the trees look barren and dead. But maybe it will be different this year.
Fall, of course, is very crochet friendly.  I have been looking at some crochet images for some fall accessory ideas.

Have a blessed day,
