Fall Flowers

We’ve had a lovely fall here — I don’t know that our maple tree has ever been more gorgeous. (Usually, our poor Norway Maple gets black spot, and its leaves fall before achieving true autumnal colors.)

Inside, I’ve been getting ready for the Craftsy Instructor Challenge. (If you need to get up to speed, just see this post.) Packages have come across the border from Heidi …

and from Patty …

… and local folks have promised some blossoms for my T-shirt, too. I can’t wait to see what they leave me at the shop!

I also got the shirt in the mail from Craftsy!

Fortunately for me, it’s a mere X-Large, rather than the 4XL promised.

I’ve “unvented” a simple edging that I’m learning to sew neatly onto the shirt.

I’m using Madelinetosh “Tosh Sock” left over from the cowl I made as a sample for my Craftsy class, Fun & Fantastic Textured Crochet Stitches.

I think I have enough to edge both sleeves and the hem.

The deadline for my receiving¬†flowers for the T-shirt is Friday, November 18. I’ll do my best to use¬†everything I’m given on the shirt. I can’t promise it’ll be beautiful, but it’ll certainly be … interesting!
