Fall Is Here and Contest Goodies.

Fall has finally arrived!! YAY!! I love this time of year. We still have some pretty warm days and the leaves aren't turning colors so much just yet but it's getting there.

I'm sorry for being so long updating but I've been going another round with sinus issues and my left ear is so stopped up I can't hear as well out of it. It's driving me insane! Yeah, short trip. :P

So, finally I can get to posting my awesome contest winnings!!! Thanks, Christy!!! I have been wanting to try this yarn for a while. I just have to figure out what to make now. She also included that little soap....handmade goat's milk with the most wonderful smell. I hate to use it because it will be gone then and I can't smell it anymore. :P I keep it on my desk so I can sniff it. lol You just can't beat handmade soap.

I finally caught up on my blog reading tonight and now I must get caught up on my knitting. My poor little tea cozy is waiting to be finished and then I have to get the stand done...which is like a round potholder that the teapot sits on. I've also got several new designs for the group which I need to get written up and tested. I so hate to get behind...it seems to take forever to catch up again.

Hope everything is going well in your neck of the woods. Hopefully I won't be gone for so long before I post again.

* Don't forget to visit Aunt Kathy...her contest is in full swing.*

Your new yarn is beautiful...very generous contest winnings :) I can't wait to see what you end up making :)

Talking about catching up. Seems like I'm always playing that game and then once I catch up...it's not long before I fall behind again :)

Hope you feel better real soon and get all that nasty sinus problems cleared up. Colds, etc. sure are starting up early this year!

I want summer to continue, not into fall. Used to love it. I wonder though if the leaf color will be minimal this year with all the crazy weather everyone had. Either not enough rain or too much rain it seemed. So far, barely starting here.

Have a great wk,

Pretty color blue, looks like nice yarn

Love the new look!

That yarn is gorgeous! I love navy yarn. Love the soap, too.

Aw, I'm jealous of the dogwood tree. I had two but both of them got the blight and died.

I need a pecan tree, too. Them walnuts of mine are stinkers to crack. ;p
