Aw, yiss, fall!


IT'S FALL, Y'ALL. It's my favorite time of the year! Cooler weather, leaf piles, cups of cider, the food, FOOTBALL. Well, most of that happens in El Paso. I don't think we have a Fall. We have Early Summer, Summer, Holy Crap, It's Hot, Late Summer, Monsoon Season, and OMG SNOW. Either way, I can pretend it's Fall.

Despite all the chaos that's currently going on in my life, I have been able to get a little crafting done. This, for example:

This was really fun to do! It's a mini-charm pack by Moda, Happy Go Lucky. I think it might be one of my favorite collections by them.

I was browsing through Pinterest one day, trying to figure out what to do with the mini charm packs I had just acquired. You know, there's not a lot to do with just ONE mini-charm pack. Until I came across this:

This wonderful tutorial from 627handiworks, was originally for a charm pack. You know, the 5" precuts instead of the 2.5" that I had? Well, hell, I thought. I could do this with my 2.5" squares! And so I did. The directions were easy to follow, and wonderfully illustrated. And I created this wonderful little top! I was originally going to turn it into a pillow, but my husband decided it should be a wall hanging for the kitchen, instead. So, once my chaos goes away, I will be sewing and quilting the day away. And frankly, I'm flippin' excited.
