Where does the week go?????

This week seemed to fly by, so glad the weekend is here.  We have had heat indexes of 110-115 for 2 weeks now, when will fall arrive?
A former co-worker and friend surprised me the other day, she stopped in and had an armful of material and wanted to know if I could use it, I defiinitely could.  It is perfect for some of my fall crafting.  Thank you, Dorothy.
 I've had this pattern for over a year now and while I was at Goodwill the other day,I found this pair of shoes and thought perfect for a mouse.  The pattern is by Homespun Hugs and Calico Kisses.  I just added the Dear Santa letter and felt stocking.  Now, I will be on the hunt for more shoes.
 These are also new, made from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.
 I also made two more of the large scarecrows, I had an order for one and made one more.  They are also a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.
 I am also trying my hand at bottlecaps, I have a simple craft to do for our Halloween Craft program at the library, so I'm thinking something witchy or spooky.  I ordered the bottlecaps and covers and graphics from EBAY and ETSY.  I'm loving the look of these, I bought some vintage witch tag graphics and somehow I want to create a tag with the bottlecap and tag image.
Well, close to bedtime, happy crafting and weekend!  Cyndy

    of fabric. Just what a stitcher can always use.
