Birthday Train!

Hello everyone,
hope your are having a great weekend!
WoW, doesn't it feel like fall outside,
leaves are slowly turning color,
my veggie patch is almost done producing 
the grass is slowing down growing.
LoL, I hate to say it but I'm not a bit sad 
about the grass slowing down!!!

Today I would like to share with you my
"Vintage Train Birthday Card"
I made for my Uncle's special day.

 Tickets are stamped with Tim Holtz "The Journey" stamps.
 A little sparkle to catch your eye.

 Train is stamped with Hero Art "Past Times" stamp
and the Railroad Poster is Stampendous!
Old trains bring me back to my childhood,
my Grandpa used to work for the railroad,
he was a Conductor
as a little girl it was always a special treat when my
Grandma took me to visit him at work.
I still love train rides to this day!!!

I hope you liked what you seen,
thanks so much for stopping by my humble blog!
Have a wonderful weekend!

A little knit and purl...

Hello everyone,
hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Sorry no card in this post,
I thought I share a little 
knit and purl today!

I finally finished my knitting project
I started a few month ago.
I love playing with yarn during the colder
month, not so much in the summer.
I guess you could say "I'm a seasonal knitter" :-)
But I already had my eyes on a new 
crochet fall scarf, 
if you are like me I'm always burning to get
the new project started and
before you know it you have a few things going
at the same time and nothing finished.
So for a change I made myself finish the pillow
before starting the new scarf.
Well it took me all summer but here is
the finished pillow.
Yarn is Charisma from Loops & Threads,
off white and very soft.

Almost there!
The pattern is reversible.
I choose the flat/smooth side for my pillow.
Coconut buttons.
Hurray, DONE!

Cast-on even number of stitches. 
First row knit one purl one. 
Second row knit all. Repeat pattern of  row one and two.

Now off to my new fall scarf!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!
