Summer has left us


and I have welcomed fall with open arms! I love this time of year, don't you?
Once again, it always seems to be this time of year, I go through my stash of
floss, fabric, and threads...........always thinking of what I could start to work on next.
I have a considerable amount of small balls of crochet thread.........much of it vintage that
has found it's way to me either by friends gifting or junk shops literally tossing it.
I am always glad to rescue it.........but I realize I need to use it.
Since there is not such a large amount of the thread on each spool, I have tried to think of a good
way to actually make something small with it without combining all of the odd colors together to make
one large blanket.  
I finally settled on crocheting a miniature shell blanket with this lovely fall color thread.
If you would like to do the same, all you need to do is to 
use your favorite crochet pattern and just make it a lot smaller.
I have a small amount of miniature quilts that I make from time to time 
stored in a box........no use for them , except for the fact I love to make them
So I suppose I can have miniature crocheted blankets in the box with the 
quilts.  I may come up with a use for them all .........some day.
What are you keeping your hands busy with?  Are you decorating for
this wonderful fall season?  I would love to hear!
