Scrumptious Donut Pillow | Free Crochet Pattern

(You can now purchase your own, inexpensive PDF copy in my shops at GingerPeachyStore on Etsy and Ravelry!)

So soon after starting my fall-oriented crafting I am taking a break to share an unrelated pattern. But that is how it goes sometimes.

Recently I found myself faced with a birthday party and no gift to give. I'm a gift-giving kind of person, it makes me happy, as does being able to make my gifts.

12 Things I Love About Fall

I didn't forget, you see. After mentioning the idea for this post last week (see this post) I just couldn't let it go. So here, ladies and gentlemen, are my 15 things I love about Autumn!

Note: I couldn't begin to name which is my favorite and which is my least, so I have listed them as I thought of them.

1. Cooler Temperatures
This is the first thing to get our spirits up. Here in the south, our summers are hot and the humidity is extreme. We are naturally outdoors people, outside in the rain, snow, etc, but this year we've had to learn to handle the heat even more for various reasons. Therefore, the cooler temperatures just naturally lift our spirits. We can't help it.

Rustic Pumpkin Pillows | Free Crochet Pattern

Hello everyone! And hello Fall!

I am so thankful that this year we are actually getting one, that I am going to take special advantage of the season and not let it by without a big to-do. After all, it is my favorite season!

I love so many things about fall, the cooler weather, the warm colors, apples and pumpkins, chunky sweaters and etc. I could go on but I think you get the picture. Maybe what I should do is write a "100 Things I Like About Autumn" post. That would be fun. Would you read it?

But not today.

Today I am super excited to be sharing my latest, free crochet pattern, all about fall -- a set of three, rustic pumpkin pillows!

WIP Afghan - Finally Finished!

Do you remember when I wrote that blog post about the crocheted afghans in the movie The Ghost and Mrs. Muir?

Do you remember these pictures?

Full Hair and Wide Rims | 80's Fashion

I can't help feeling really frustrated at not having a pattern to share again this week, but I have a good excuse. I still do not have a replacement computer, which means my files that weren't networked are lost until further notice. It's a struggle to get it all done using multiple computers, due to availability and convenience, so I have given myself a little slack.

However, I cannot simply let it go until I get another computer. So just to let you know, I am working on a scrumptious fall pattern I hope to present to you very soon! Want a hint? It's a set of various sized items in beautiful fall tones. Not much of a hint, is it? Just wait and see!

So -- today I am going to talk retro fashion!

It's been a long time since I have done this. I hadn't decided if it fit into my blog now that I have gone mostly crafty, but I definitely enjoy doing these, so it was "what the heck, why not!"

This fashion post is centered in the late 80's; all shots taken from the TV series, MacGyver. For the sake of fashion, I'm not going to get into the details about each episode. But, if you are interested in which episode I have taken these shots from, see the notes at the very end.
