Potpourri






It's Friday.
Time for a little this and that.
A little randomness.




*
A few coolish mornings here (high 60s) and that means I can get out and walk.
Yippee!
A few walks up to my village and some window shopping.

**

I noticed on my walks that the trees were talking/singing.
The breeze was wonderful and the sound in the leaves -- listen carefully.
Singing!

***

I've been working on Potholders for Christmas.
A Christmas Wreath



Christmas Wreaths

and Christmas Trees.
I have a few more to do.

Christmas Tree


****

Pumpkins are starting to show up at the grocery stores.
I'm starting to think about Pumpkin rolls, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Soup.
Jack-O-Lanterns

*****
Plans for the weekend:
Football, decorating for Halloween/Autumn, more crochet, some reading
and, of course, playing with the kitties.


Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Your trees are so cute! !

Thank you for visiting my blog.
You certainly have a good start on Christmas crocheting. I haven't even thought of Christmas yet and I always run out of time... Oh well.

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

wow, you are ready for Christmas & talking about pumpkins - that is making me giggle.

i was looking for a pumpkin at one store guess i need to look at another because they only had one size. i wanted something on the smaller size not huge. no wish to cute it up or anything that like, just decorating for fun. ( :

Vee said...

Oh wonderful! I know how long you have waited to have some cooler temps...Your walks sound marvelous! And it appears that you'll be very ready for Christmas gift giving or decorating. Those potholders are adorable.

Your crochet work is so pretty! I love those wreaths. Your weekend plans sound perfect--my kind of weekend, especially with the reading and the kitties. :-)

Jim said...

Have a nice walk, Snap. I should do that too. I played golf Tuesday and it was really nice until about noon.

I like your pot holders. Are a part of the wreath you are making?

One other, Football. Did you go to the Bayou Bucket? I wish I had.

Dotti said...

Oh, my, Snap! You are so well-prepared for the holidays. Will you come help me out? Sweet potholders!

aspiritofsimplicity said...

I love the wreaths! Mostly though, I love your thoughts on the trees singing. I hear them too.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Cute potholders! This is why I'm no good at decorating, I won't be thinking about Christmas until the middle of December, and then I'll be so busy with the stuff I have to do that I won't have time for fun stuff like pot holder (sigh). Enjoy your weekend!

What a wonderful post- and love the potholders - I've got that pattern so I must begin at once - oh wait - have to get the yarn first - then I'll begin - at once.

edenhills said...

Your crochet projects are just adorable! I love the wreath! I'm thinking pumpkin brownies...

Robyn G said...

Snap,
I like your fall themed header and Christmas Tree pot holders.

Pumpkin Rolls and Jack-o-Lanterns have crossed my mind too.

Enjoy your fun sounding weekend.

Maggid said...

I just KNEW you'd have potholders . . .Hurray!

You speak of singing trees. I once lived in a forest. When wind breaths through the pines, i honestly think the sound is the Voice of God.

Then, snow must be the Whisper . .

Happy Fall to You!!!

Mary said...

Things made with pumpkin are yummy. Soup is delicious on a cool fall day. Speaking of cool, i'm glad you've had some cool mornings to walk. :)

Have a fun weekend. And enjoy your playtime with kitties. :D

Michelle said...

Those are some sweet, little wreaths!

You crochet so nicely- those are fabulous, Snap! Love them - wow.

You are mega talented for sure!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Snap, you are so creative with the knitting/crochet...I can't tell which is which because I'm completely naff at either. These little Christmas treaties look lovely. I miss the songs in the trees; mostly heard at the Thames in OXON where I live part of the year. It's true, wind in the willows is alive and well.

Hula La said...

Very nice crochet for Christmas! Fall is my fave time of year! Ok, whatever season comes in is my fave...ENJOY! Aloha

Nancy said...

Those are so cute! Will you be selling these or are they gift items?

Janet said...

Each week I look forward to Friday potpourri. I love these posts with little glimpses into your life. It's cooler here, too, thank goodness! And pumpkin soup sounds good to me. I love the potholders you're making, and the Halloween inspired banner. You're so busy!!

Deborah said...

Oh sweet! How busy your little fingers have been. Feels good to be blog hopping this morning.

Lovelovelove,

augcott said...

I love walking ... especially when the weather is cool and crisp. And you are so right.....the trees are singing!
Pumpkins and apples!!! A definite sign of Autumn!
Have a lovely crisp weekend!

Sharon Chapman said...

I want your weekend. The trees here are screaming with 60 mile an hour winds, horrendous rain and power outages. Not what I had planned. No gardening this weekend :-0

Scrapatches said...

I hear the trees sing, too. :) Lovely Christmas potholders. Are the patterns your own?

Linda R said...

I do love this time of year. Your crochet projects look amazing. I am trying to knit some socks. I'm a little rusty at knitting. So I hope I finish them.. I enjoyed my stop here..

Hugs~
