Julie's Creative Lifestyle

Crochet Fun & Enjoying Fall!

Monday, October 13, 2014

Hi everyone, I'm glad to be back to blogging this week and feel refreshed.  I missed all of you and blogging so much!  Thanks to all of you that left me such sweet comments and featured me on your blogs, I appreciate it!  

I accomplished so much while I was on my break.  I did a lot of cleaning, winterizing the house, decorating for Fall and Halloween, crocheting, reading, taking long walks and the list goes on!


This is where I walked my dog Bosco the other morning.  It's very refreshing taking walks in the early morning and Bosco keeps me moving.  We usually walk for a half hour everyday.



Here is a neck warmer or cowl I crocheted along with hand warmers too.  I only had a small skein of yarn to use so this was the perfect project to make.





While I was busy cleaning and decorating my house for Fall and Halloween I could not find the little pumpkins that I crocheted last year.  I was so upset so I decided to crochet new ones.  I made 6 new pumpkins.  In this picture is only 5 but I did make another white pumpkin.  



To see the pattern to make your own you can click HERE.


I'm on Instagram and to stay connected with me and see my photos you can find me at @brklynhousewife HERE!

Makeup Monday will be back next week, but in case you missed any, you can see them HERE!


Wishing everyone a Happy Columbus Day!

    The colours of the cowl are delicious and perfect to keep you warm as the weather turns.

  4. Welcome back Julie; it sounds like you had a nice and very productive break. What a lovely place to walk every day! And I'm impressed with the crocheting; it would take me all fall to do that! The little pumpkins are adorable.

  8. Glad you got stuff done while you were away, Julie. That neck warmer is very pretty. I love the color of it. And those pumpkins are SOOO cute. I had hoped to do some pumpkins this fall but it doesn't look like that is going to happen.

  12. What a beautiful walk you and your Bosco go on each day, Julie. I love your neck warmer and I'll bet it keeps you so cozy. Your pumpkins are so cute, but too bad that you can't find the ones you did last year. At least they're a quick project!
