I feel like I’m really falling down on my blogging job lately. This is the third week in a row where the only thing I’ve had time to post is the weekly TWiP roundup.
It makes me thankful that I have this TWiP thing going on, otherwise, who knows how long I would go between posts? I probably have one more week of being up to my eyeballs in things-I-must-do, and then I should be able to carve out some more time for things-I-like-to-do.
On a completely different note, it’s been feeling very autumnal around here lately. Today I find myself craving some hot apple cider. I may have to buy a jug of it, and let it simmer in the crock pot with some harvest spice herbal tea bags… Mmmmmmm!
I tell you, if my house was company-ready right now, I’d throw a spontaneous fall party with bubbling slow-cooker apple cider, pumpkin muffins, and apple crisp!
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
365 📷: 2016 296/366 – I love rainy fall days. The colors are so vibrant.
Instagram 📱: I’m working on a companion pattern to the Vertical Hold Wrap. (Can you guess what it will be called? 😉) I already ripped back one prototype. My second try is making me much happier. Time to find a movie, plug myself in, and make a ton of progress! #pdc
365 📷: 2016 297/366 – My brother and soon-to-be-sister-in-law during our photo shoot today ♥ [Taken at New Jersey Botanical Garden.]
Instagram 📱: Taking pictures with my brother, soon-to-be sister-in-law and my sister 😊🍁🍂❤ [Taken at New Jersey Botanical Garden.]
Instagram 📱: How about we make #meetthepatterns a regular Monday thing? 😊 This one is called Blue Jubilee. It’s one of my favorites, because the jewelry I make from it goes so nicely with jeans 💙. BTW, I have a tutorial available in my downloads shop, if you’re a polymer clay enthusiast who would like to learn how to make a Jubilee cane (in any color)! #pdc
365 📱: 2016 298/366 – Sometimes you just need to run to the food store after dinner and replenish your chocolate supply before you do anything else. (My particular poison is the Kings Sea Salt and Almond bar. Mmmm.) [Taken at Kings.]
Instagram 📱: ❤: 🍁🍂🍃☁
365 📷: 2016 299/366 – Today’s business included photographing and carding some new items for the shop, including earrings and touch screen styli (styluses? I should google that…)
Instagram 📱: Heart pins and badge reels new in the #pdc shop today 😊
365 📱: 2016 300/366 – Hanging out with my favorite goddaughter this afternoon ♥ [Taken at my SIL’s house.]
365 📷: 2016 301/366 – Chilly, rainy, overcast… Fall does "moody" so well.
365 📷: 2016 302/366 – My to-do list has been very long again, today, but one of the things on it involved playing with these (my polymer clay millefiori cane collection), so it wasn’t all bad.
Instagram 📱: I haven’t shown you my #knitting lately. I’m having trouble focusing on any one thing, so it’s all going rather slowly. I’m plugging away on my Christmas #pdcportholepullover (bottom left) and working on a new shawl design (top) that was going to be a companion to my #pdcverticalhold wrap, but I’m underwhelmed by how it looks so far. I’m probably going to frog it and try something completely different. I’ve also been swatching for a new sweater design (bottom right). I’m playing around with slip stitch colorwork, and while I like these colorful bands, I think I can give them some more visual interest than this. #pdc
I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
