Can you feel the shift from summer to fall? I’ve been doing everything possible to hold off posting my crochet pumpkins and all my new makes in fall colors. I may have faltered a time or two, but now we’re on to fall…full steam ahead!
If you remember, I had some important shop updates. The first being that all my patterns would be a flat $4.50 per pattern. And if you know me, I like to bundle things to offer you savings. So, I’ve got pattern bundles that save you anywhere from 40% to 50% on patterns.
New items are being uploaded almost every day to my online shop. I will be listing my pumpkin pincushions this week. Prices range from $6 to $15 for individual pincushions and my pumpkin stacks will be around $30.

Later this week, we’ll have two of our grandkids staying with us while their parents enjoy an extended weekend in Maine.

September 18, 2021 – If you’re local to southern New Hampshire, please visit my booth at Derryfest in McGregor Park.

My super creative friend, Nora, will be manning the booth with me and she’ll have plenty of her gorgeous makes available, too.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve released three patterns:
