Autumn Faves

Up next for my Autumn favorites series is:

HOT COCOA!!!

                                                                            source Ahhh... As soon as the nights begin to cool down enough, that's when I start craving hot cocoa!
I love going out and ordering this yummy treat but I like making it at home too! I either use cocoa powder or Mexican chocolate brand Ibarra and I add cinnamon to both, oh and I use Mocha Mix instead of milk. So much more creamier! :) If you've never tried Mexican chocolate you should give it a try! Really yummy!

                                                                           source

                                                                            sourceI think I need to go make myself some hot cocoa!

Work In Progress

My next project! I'm really excited because well this one's for me!

As soon as I saw this pattern I knew I had to make this for myself. I really loved the color scheme
but when I went to the store there wasn't really anything that matched up to the photo. So I chose
these lovely colors:






Sorry my camera phone just isn't quite picking up the colors. I'll take one with my real camera soon!

See ya tomorrow!

The LEAVES! lol! I love watching the leaves change color. The way they blanket the ground. There's even a nice scent with some leaves. Of course one memory that stands out from my childhood is raking the leaves together into a giant pile just so I could jump into it.

See ya tomorrow!

Work In Progress

Here the pink blanket I promised to share last week.

Sadly these last two weeks its hardly gotten any attention. It's a gorgeous pattern I just found myself getting bored. But this has been happening to me lately with every project that I start.

Here's the photo provided with the pattern:

So pretty! Right?

Next week, a cardigan! Yup! I'm working on three different projects right now. I'm thinking about starting a fourth, but maybe I should finish one project first :)

See ya tomorrow!

Autumn Favorites

                                                                              source

The temperatures haven't totally gotten fall like here just yet :(  Well the nights are starting to get cooler. Yay!
But when the temps. finally do begin to dip, my favorite thing to do is light candles. And this goes on well into winter. I love scented candles as well. Apple cinnamon is one of my absolute faves as long as the scent isn't too sweet.

It's Beginning to Feel Like Fall!

                                                                                               source
In Autumn
by Winifred C. Marshall

They're coming down in showers,
The leaves all gold and red;
They're covering the little flowers,
And tucking them in bed
They've spread a fairy carpet
All up and down the street;
And when we skip along to school,
they rustle 'neath our feet



                                                                             source

Autumn

The green leaves are turning
To yellow, red and brown
And when the wind comes
Whistling by, they'll
     all
          come
               sailing
                    down








Yay! So glad the weather is changing! This is definitely my favorite time of year!
See ya tomorrow!

One Down...

One to go!

But it took a few tries! I had to unravel a lot of my work at least two times :(
The good thing is I now know the pattern better so making the next one will
be easier.

See ya tomorrow!
