Sweater Weather


It's fall in New England!  It's a beautiful time of year with the mums blooming and 



the leaves changing colors.  We've had some beautiful weather, so it's given us the chance to be outside enjoying all of the beautiful colors fall has to offer.  I drive by this tree on my way home from school each day. It was so pretty, I couldn't resist taking a picture.


These trees are in my yard. The orange, red and yellow leaves are just beautiful this time of year. I'm enjoying their beauty now because pretty soon we'll be working hard to rake them all up.


Raking's not as much fun as when I was a kid raking and jumping in all of the leaves.  Now it feels like work to clean them all up.


Of course once fall comes and the leaves change color, it gives me something to be happy about; sweater weather.  I don't mean wearing sweaters, I mean sewing and crafting with sweaters. Yay!


  I love recycling wool sweaters and coats for crafts.  I made this wine sweater as a thank you gift.



I also made a fairy tale zombie from wool for Val's Fairytale zombie swap. Little Red Ridinghood went off to live in California with Chrissy.  I miss her sweet zombie face.


  I just love wool sweater crafting, so bring on the sweater weather!

I can't find wool things to felt down here...if I did, I would be in SUCH trouble. I love all the photos of the trees!
