Case of the Crafties

It is just me, or does arrival of fall make you go in crazy craft mode? 

When I feel that chill breeze breaking through summer heat, I have this strong desire to create something. 

In the past two weeks I have baked banana bread, made the pillow case covers from my last post, and knitted this mug cozy. 

I was looking on Etsy to buy one, but then I thought "I bet I can make that!"

I found this free knitting pattern and finished it in 2 daya. The pattern wasn't too hard, but you really have to pay attention to it. I think it turned out nice for my first one!

I don't know how long it will last, but I've been eating really good lately. Lots of fruit, veggies, and eggs. I LOVE mango. Yummy! 

At the thrift store I bought a giant stuffed tweety bird for the dogs. It lived for about 20 minutes before Evie pulled out all the stuffing. I can't believe how much stuffing they squeeze in toys! 

Hope you are having a great week! 


  1. cute cosy! We've been having unusually hot warm weather here for Autumn, no mention of lighting the fire yet....!

  2. Your mug cosy is lovely ^_^ Very pretty. Love the shot of the pooch at the end, what a cute face!

  3. I love the mug cosy. You have a great page here. The dogs are cute too. Good to see you here blogging. So many deserted blogs these days. Thank you for letting me visit.

  4. Nice! I didn't know you could knit! I tried to learn but I didn't have the patience. And your pup is too cute! We always find random "fluff" around the house from their toys!

  5. Wow! You're super crafty! I'm jealous of your crocheting skills.. Like.. I can't follow patterns or anything. I get so lost.. I need to watch some YouTube vids on it perhaps? Anyway.. I hope this holiday season has been treating you well.. and hopefully you're eating healthy too.. I only say that cause it's been sooo hard for me to be healthy lately.. I was on a roll and then Thanksgiving came around and it was downhill from there.. haha! But anyway.. that last picture of your pup is simply adorable! Why do all does like to take stuffing out ? ??! I don't get it!

  6. Dear, your blog is amazing! i’m impressed by your design & photos!
