Cozy Scarves...

Early October here in NW PA was a little on the cooler side and was definitely a time when we could get some scarves out and start accessorizing with them.


This got me to make about 10 scarves from some really cozy warm wintery materials. Two of the scarves were for myself :) and the rest for selling at a mid-October craft show.

Here are the cozy fabric neck wraps (aka. scarves) that I made...

Gray Chevron Minky Continuous Scarf 

Green Leaves Brushed Continuous Scarf 

Woolly Plaid Continuous Scarf 

 Purple Floral Flannel Continuous Scarf

 Minky Sky Blue Dots Continuous Scarf

 Fluffy Blush Pink Continuous Scarf

Beige Heather Sweatshirt Continuous Scarf

All of these are on my Gift Cove store website and ready to be shipped! Go on over and pick out your favorite... you'll be all ready for cooler weather and look stunning at the same time!

for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
her clothing is silk and purple."

Planning Ahead...

As October draws to an end, the planning for Christmas really kicks into high gear...especially for those of us that enjoy making the presents we plan to give to others throughout the holiday season.


Last week, Liz and I visited a local quilt shop just to browse (and kill time before we needed to be at the library...). The inspiration during this trip was a set of pompom makers and the sample pompom hanging in front them.

They got me to thinking...

Then it got me perusing Pinterest...for ways to make pompoms without buying pompom makers and for projects we can make with the pompoms for Christmas gifts.

I found both! 

The How to make a Wool Pom Pom Wreath and Garland blog post from An Oregon Cottage was probably the most influential pin of my search.

So, the pompom making has begun, but not en mass... hopefully we will pick up the production pace soon and get a good head start on our Creative Christmas!


I have other Christmas plans in the works too... 


Do you? What are your Creative Christmas plans?

Beautiful Fall Day...

This afternoon warmed up nicely after a chilly start this morning...so the girls went outside to play in the leaves. I was able to catch some of the fun with the camera...

Out on the trampoline...
 Laughing on the large tree swing...
 Sweet girl...

 Swinging contentment...
 Watching the sun...

 Adorable girls :)
