Thrift store snags

Went to the thrift store yesterday looking for some old candelabras to display my hats for a trade show in October. Didn't find any. But I did manage to snag 2 bags of wool. This bag cost me a $1.50. Three balls of white Boucle and a few odd bits.

And this bag cost me a $1.00.
 So the trip wasn't a total lost cause, but I still need some candelabras............argh!

We are having a gorgeous September day here. There is a little chill in the air, but it was a great morning for  a 5km walk.

I love harvest time.

Went berrypicking a few days ago and got these. (Didn't have much time, had to go to work.)
The next day they became this!!!!

If anyone would like the Blueberry crumble recipe, let me know.

There's smoke from them fingers!!

15 Crocheted Flower Beanies in 3 days. The crochet hook is getting hot. Seems like everyone is looking for these little hats for back to school. The weather has been really nice the last couple of days, so I have sat outside before or after work and created these. The colors are as cheerful as the weather :-)
In between this I managed to do two ATC's for trade and a Mug Rug for a friend
This one is gone to Norway, Maine. I incorporated some needle punch in this one.

This one has found a home in Ottawa, ON

And this Mug Rug is gone to Paradise, NL.  I hope everyone enjoys their little treasures. I had fun making them.
