There's A Chill In The Air!

There's a chill in the air, and I am so excited to bring out some sweaters!
I came across these adorable felines all cosy'd up in their fine knitwear via Lost at E Minor...
Cats in Sweaters by Blech on Flickr

This guy looks like my Maxwell...
I am not sure how happy mine would be with a sweater on!

I hope your September is coming along famously,


p.s. I have been SO busy with Dolce Dreams, my sewing machine is keeping me away from the computer...Miss you all!

If I Had The Time...

If I had the time...
I would take up knitting, or crocheting, and buy everything they have at Purl Soho! I came across their website when I was searching for a fabric, and immediately fell in love. Everything they do is so exquisite, and makes me want to create!
On the website you can get the pattern and a kit to make the gorgeous blanket above...

These Liberty coin purse kits are a perfect gift for the creative souls in your life...I want one!

Patterns galore...

This nap mat is available in a kit...

With everything you need!

More on my want list...

Embroidery supplies

Stunning yarns galore

Supply still life


They carry beautiful fabrics, including Liberty of London prints

My next trip to New York will include a stop in at their shop in Soho, it looks amazing! If you aren't in New York, their website is HERE, and be sure to sign up for the newsletter, because they are always coming out with new and fresh projects that I am pinning away...
For that day when I have "time"!

Have a wonderful week!

Hello September!

Sweet September

When August is a declining ember
Enter in, sweet September...
Now comes the time for changing colour,
Miracles unfold, green to amber and gold.
How well my heart and I remember
My birthday month ~ sweet September.

September is here, it seems that it came all too quickly!
A special month that I love ~
Not only with the seasons changing, but it is the month I was married, and also my Grandmother's birthday month.

Happy September to you!
