Although it's actually about 90 degrees in Chicago today (summer's last hurrah I bet!), I've been thinking about all the fun things that come with fall. We've had some cooler weather lately, and I'm already pretty excited for fall activities. I get to be in a fall wedding next week (we get to wear boots with our dresses yessssss!), get to go through a corn maze, pick apples, pumpkins! Eee!
And the thought of cooler weather definitely makes me want to burrow down in our apartment and just craft away. I even started knitting myself a scarf in this beautiful pumpkin orange yarn - I can hardly wait to wear it!
A few weeks ago I made this wreath for my best friend:
I've seen them all over Etsy and thought that it looked simple enough for me to give it a go. And it turned out great! Now I need to make one for our apartment. I'm thinking they would make some really great Christmas presents as well (yes, I've already begun to think of the holiday season ;)
Last week I started and finished my first ever crocheted pillow case. I also finished another but the weather was too gloomy over the weekend to take a decent photo. I'm excited with how they both turned out and have lots of ideas for others!
Now I'm off to enjoy the last of summer's warmth! ;)
