    Yes, it' time to think about that time of year again: Fall! In only a few weeks from now the leaves are going to colour and fall and the days are slowly going to become shorter, darker and colder. It's the perfect time to sit down snuggled up in a cosy blanket with a steaming mug of tea in front of you and a crafty project to welcome the season into your home.

    I thought this acorn swaddle sack was just precious! Might have to drag my knitting needles out for this one.

    I needed a break from cross stitch so I pulled out a crochet hook and am making up a simple lapghan. It is a small shell pattern and even though it only uses one strand it is thick and heavy. icon_biggrin.gif

    Anyone with a yen to make the swaddle sack and cap could probably find a needy newborn in any natal ward. icon_smile.gif I think that's a great idea, whether it's in fall colors or not.
    I am working on Halloween pins, a moon, ghost, and house pin, to be exact. I've just gotten into them though, so no pics yet. Bye for now~

    You don't have to know how to knit/crochet these cuties. Here's a sewn swaddle sack:

    Wouldn't it be fun to do one in polar fleece or with dad's favorite team colors?

    We (me and my daughter) are going to do this over the month of October so she can bring them in for her classmates the day of their Halloween party. I love the idea and can't wait to try it! http://factorydirectcraft.com/factorydirectcraft_blog/tissue-paper-pumpkin-favors/

    That looks really cute! I think even quite young kids can do that one.
    Here's a link to my latest project, although it's not strictly fall. All views are of just the one tile.
