Since it is October, thought I'd start sharing some of my autumn hooked pieces. This first one was a free pattern insert in the Sept/Oct 1997 issue of RHM and a design by Barb Carroll. Look how all those textures work well in the border. Hope Barb is smiling down on my color choices and likes the purple.
Mache Jacks is my design and I offer the pattern, the crow was a purchase from JoAnne's fabrics many years ago and the papier mache' jack-o-Lantern I made with a group of dollmaker/crafter friends when I lived in Columbia, MD.
Remember a few days ago I told you Priority mail, and I suppose all USPS mail, increased by $1. On 10/3 I shipped a pattern from Delaware to Georgia and as yesterday 10/10 it still hadn't arrived. Tracking had it in Jacksonville, Florida yesterday and was finally delivered to it's destination in GA at noon today 10/11..
Huh, how did it miss Georgia? Last time I looked at the US map from DE it would have gone thru VA, NC, SC, then GA before getting to Florida. WTH????? That was supposed to be a 3 day delivery but since the price went up $1 they should have made it a 2 day. Anyway it finally reached its destination after 8 days.
So far I've not given in to turning on the heat despite waking up to inside temps of 62* in the morning. I manage by wearing a turtleneck with sweats and lately it has been warmer outside than inside. So open the windows where a little heat trickles in and increases the inside by just a couple degrees. Soon it will be too cold for me to handle the cold and will give in to turning on the heat. Am trying to delay the electric and fuel bills by as many days as possible.
Hope people are looking for their choice of pattern and plan to join me in the challenge. If anyone has questions please feel free to email me. Happy hooking.
