crafternoon


My friend Chaych coined that fantastic word. Today I had a lovely one. Half-day at work turned into a super crafty time. I got lots done. Birthday presents worked on (almost completed!) practiced knitting on circular needles (I'm terrible at it, but finally "getting" it), cut, sewed. It was lovely.

I decided to go outside and enjoy the warm sunshine. It's been perfect here finally after 5 straight days or rain. I'm soaking in all the warmth while I can. Winter is right around the corner, you know.



Whilst my sewing and knitting, I listened to Elsie's Autumn Playlist. It's quite fantastic. New music and perfect for relaxing and being creative. Try it here.

And just because I can't post without including a photo from the West Coast, here you go.

Please note: The older gentleman in the foreground. He must have been pushing 80 years or even older. This was about 3 miles into the hike, UP HILL almost the entire way. And there I was behind him barely dragging my feet up each step. Oh man, that was the kick in the bottom I needed to get up that mountain.
