There is no fighting it anymore, fall is definitely here. Beautiful fall colors are everywhere. Though there is a definite nip in the air. It seems as if nature just wants to skip fall here and go straight to winter. The last 3 nights it we have had frost and today there have been snow showers! Seems a bit early.
I thought I would start making some Christmas presents. I made a pair of mittens today out of a felted sweater. They are lined with fleece from a thrift store. They are very warm feeling. I think will make quite a few of these for gifts. I was able to whip them up pretty fast.

I finished the hat for baby Beau in Idaho. I think it turned out really cute, I just hope it fits him. They are already receiving snow in Idaho, so it will be just in time. (Though really the gift is 2 months late.) I'm thinking I'll have to make a few for Christmas for my nephews. It is time to get rolling on making Christmas presents.
I found these cute slippers at the "Bethel Butique" yesterday for a quarter. I bought 2 shirts, a skirt and slippers for 2 dollars. What a deal.

Well, I finished the blanket for baby Shannon. It is only 3 weeks late! It feels good to be able to cross that off the list. I just haven't been much in the mood for sewing. I've been rather obsessed with drawing and painting instead. Overall I think it turned out pretty well, considering I have no idea what I am doing. I used the disappearing 9's for the front pattern. Thank goodness for binding. It is very good at hiding all the mistakes at the edge.
I started the baby hat for baby Beau in Idaho. That gift is really late. He is already 2 months old. I should be able to finish it tomorrow and get it in the mail. Next comes a Halloween costume for Fischer. He wants to be a pterodactyl.
