Halloween S'Mores

I was looking around for some fun Halloween treat ideas today, and I came across these yummy s'mores at Eighteen 25...





I'm thinking I will make these gluten free by using gluten free graham crackers, which is all I would need to do to them.
So head over to Eighteen 25 to get the recipe for this fun and yummy treat.

Beginner Knitted Coffee Cozy

When I was going through my Gooseberry patch Homemade Harvest cookbook I found a section of craft ideas. This easy and fast knitted cozy was one of them...
Very simple pattern, and this beginner knitter completed this cozy in less than an hour.


Besides finding this fun pattern that kept me busy last night, I also have a huge list of recipes I want to try. Tonight I made the slow cooker mac n cheese.




It was super good, and a big hit with my boys. Not to mention that it was nice to have dinner all ready and waiting in the crock pot.

So go to amazon.com and look for Gooseberry patch Homemade Harvest. It's worth the money!

Mummy Craft with my BFF

Today my BBF and I spent the day together. We went to Starbucks, and ordered keurig coffee together while at Starbucks, we thought that was kinda comical. We also bought all the materials needed to make craft stick mummies from family fun.com
We only have made one so far, but the plan is to make seven of them and string them into a garland. It was so much fun to have a craft type day, and let all my worries just fly away :)
If you also want to make a Craft Stick Mummy go to http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/craft-stick-mummy-673394/. What a great craft to make with your kids or your BFF ;)

Fall Crochet Project

I'm ready for Fall to show up! Summer is nice, and I really enjoy it, but Fall and Winter are my favorite season. Our weather has been so hot and dry, we are ready for crisp cool air and rain, nights by the fire, crock pot meals, and cocoa.

So here is a garland I made using Lion Brands Felted leaf pattern. I used cotton instead of wool, so the felting was out of the question. But they kept the shape nicely, and I like them a lot better than the wool version.




The other thing that I'm working on is a pattern from the Sept/Oct 2010 edition of Crochet Today. I love how Crochet Today has been publishing retro patterns with a new twist, and the pumpkin and black cat pot holders are just too cute not to make. So here is what my pumpkin looks like so far....
So what are you working on? What are your favorite fall crochet projects?
