Weekend Stuff

I am so happy that it is cool now!  I have been enjoying not only the cooler weather, but the rain!  Oh my goodness, I don't ever recall an October being so wet!!!   I have done a lot of sewing, and a lot of needle work.  I made some tea towels from plain cotton towels that I bought in a 4 pak from Target.  Then embellished them with fabric and appliques. 
Knitting lots of dishcloths, and other things.  Still working on two afghans that I am crocheting as well.  Made another one of those delicious mozzarella and arugula pizzas the other night.  SO good!
Went to Trader Joe's to stock up on my Fall favorites this morning.  If you haven't yet tried this pumpkin pancake mix, I suggest you do.  It is wonderful!!
Popped into Bath & Body Works for some Pumpkin hand soap. Met Mr. G at Panera for a light lunch.  We were invited to the Del Rey for dinner tonight.  It is a wonderful steak house in Los Angeles.  I get to wear my winter boots that I bought at the tail end of winter last year and only got to wear once.  Better go get pretty. The car is leaving soon.
Happy Fall from my neck of the woods!

T.J.s has Pumpkin Pancake mix...You know where I'm going tomorrow.

I love your new dishtowels. Simplify and Sweet as can be. are still working on two blankets. Does that mean you are not sooooooooo mad at me. Remember, the rule, one must be finished before another is started. But, I will get T.S. to you soon.

By the Way, it's Dark Side of the Moon, by Pink Floyd. And no, I really was quiet and straight back in the day. I do just love this album though.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Oh Kris you are always soo busy and creative. What a good idea on the towels. I am afraid nothing is going to sound as good now as those Pumpkin pancakes for breakfast this morning. Oh yummm. Hope you enjoyed your dinner. The rain IS wonderful...even at Sea World I enjoyed it. Have a wonderful day....

Love the tea towels...I really wish I could sew!! And I am now even more determined to make a trip to Trader Joes - its not super close but close enough; however, I have never shopped there! I hear all about it often, though:)

Kristi said...

Yes this weather has been so nice! Great tea towels, and the pizza looks so yummy!

Larissa said...

Your one crafty woman... I just love those towels!

And who can live without Petite Cocoa Batons??? I seriously LOVE those!

Oh how we need a Trader Joe's. I have to drive over an hour to get to one - sigh. I love the frozen onion and gruyere tart. It's to die for!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. It's very nice to meet you too!

I do make cakes, but not as a business. I just do them occasionally for friends and family. I really enjoy making them in hobby mode. I think I'd drive myself nuts if I made them all the time (and there wouldn't be as much time for blogging!).
