Texture Tuesdays-Fabulous Fall

Fabulous Fall...love the color of this season, love the thanksfulness of the season, the food, and family.
Linking up today with Kim for Textures Tuesdays, I used Kim's textures kristen, and paperscript.

A beautiful fall day at the park, I only had a few minutes to snap some pics, but how can you go wrong with such scenery.

I find great comfort in these words, my friends {especially after listening to current world new events}. Praise God, for his loving kindness.  Blessings to you and be a blessing, Michelle

Granny Squares

Granny Squares crocheted afghan.  Finished this up a few weeks ago and went to the park for some nice fall outdoor photo shoot with blanket in hand {in the bright sunlight of the cold day}.  A multi-colored blanket, using wool yarn 4-ply worsted weight and a hook size F.  I added the same color border to each block red, then I also crocheted them together with red.  I think it makes it look almost like quilt blocks that way.  The I did the three color border which I think just really finishes the project off nicely.  This is a nice rectangle to use as a blanket to cuddle with. 

Linking up with:  Feather your nest and pink saturday

I know, lots of photos, but after you've hooked this many stitches...it felt justified.  I think the slide worked nice for a prop, the ground was a little wet.  Lots of hours in this, time to think and dream and a usefulness with my hands.  I thank God for giving me so many hobbies that I enjoy and that are useful too. 
Blessings, Michelle

Texture Tuesdays

DREAM---Linking up with Kim today for Texture Tuesdays.  The theme Kim asked us to use today is "dream".    I used the texture "kristen" on both of the photos.   Hope to get back into the swing of posting, moved two weeks ago and still unpacking.
I picked this fall photo of the slide because it reminded me of when I was a child and all the dreams you dream when you don't think about all the reasons why they can't or won't happen when you start the negative thinking that we sometimes are prone to.    I used luminosity on the Kristen texture.

I chose this photo of the last flower arrangement I made for the season, two dreams in one.  Dremaing of a cut flower business in my future and also the scripture is inspired by John's dream recorded in the book of Revelation.  Thank you for stopping by today, wishing you a week of blessings.  Michelle
