Fall is here...

I can't wait for it to get cooler in a couple of days. It was 92 here today, practically unheard of for mid-September, but in two days it is supposed to get cooler. I have spent the last couple of days perusing the newest JCREW catalog to figure out what sweaters I want to order.
I [heart] sweater weather!
I can't wait to start making (and eating!) pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread, to plan our Halloween costumes, and drive down streets made beautiful with gold and flaming red trees.

Here are a couple of projects to help set the mood... happy crafting!

A fun project to do with your children.

Tutorial for this festive banner here. The tutorial calls for sewing the letters to the paper, but non-sewers could use fusible interfacing to make them!

An adorable yoyo garland from portabellopixie.

For those of you in warmer climates... yoyo flip-flops!

I love sweater weather, too!! Wish I was there to see the fall colors though! Want to fly me out? ;)

Love those flipflops!
Charles just called from Iceberg last night. He decided to take me up on buying some warmer, wind-resistant clothes. This week we're back up to the mid 80's.

Ah, yes, the season of midterms. I totally love it, too!

Although, I'm not gonna lie... I decided that this year I would actually buy church for clothes for the winter season so I don't freeze to death every week. I'm excited. :)
