Pumpkins and a Turkey

 I thought I would share a few free patterns that I have came across the last few weeks.  Like I have wrote before, I totally love the variety of free patterns from Lily Sugar n' Cream.  Plus, if you sign up for their newsletter, you receive updates on the new pattern on their site.

 I like to make several of my own patterns, but when I am in a hurry I like to just peek at the cute ones that others have designed and try them out.  The pumpkins are from Lily Sugar n' Cream site.  Totally easy and so cute.

I then found this turkey on the Red Heart yarn site.  Once again completely free.  I changed it slightly and sewed his legs onto the front of his body so he could sit on his little round bum. 

Now, I have the perfect addition to my Thanksgiving table.  The turkey totally makes me laugh.  On to a bit more orange......

Following along with my complete insanity, I decided that I will be crocheting 6 afghans before Christmas.  Yes, I said 6.  This one is using the same pineapple pattern book that I had used for the previous afghan I finished.  It is made from Caron Simply Soft yarn.  It is sooooo soft.  I love it and even better I found it for a fraction of the price on Clearance.  Have to love a good sale!!!! 

I thought I would leave you with a feathered fella.  We saw him just across the street in out neighbors tree.  He turned to look at us a couple times.  I love that the kids got to see him.  Well, back to the old crochet hook.  I am pretty sure my fingers are going to be raw come Dec. 25th.

Pin It Now!
