Greetings from the foothills, Y'all! We're still offline, but I knew I'd have an opportunity to post today so I brought along some pics in hopes of getting you caught up with what I've been up to lately (other than the howse sale.) I made these coasters from a tutorial over at All Things Heart and Home. Actually, I did them last year but didn't get around to posting them. My sweater, Iced is finished! That is except for sewing on the buttons and making the button loops - it's blocked and ready though.
I found these cool buttons at JoAnn's, a turtle and a fish in case you can't tell what the shapes be.
Lastly, a baby hat using another free pattern here.
Final note this visit...I've been able to keep up with your blogs via my phone, and it's wonderful to be able to do that, but unfortunately I'm not able to leave comments using the phone. Until next time...have a great week and see you when I can...the good Lord willin'. :)


  1. So glad to hear back from you! Hope you can read these comments from your fab phone. Mine is not that smart though ;-)
    Pretty sweater and even prettier buttons, I must say. And that baby hat too, of course - I have also been making some baby clothes lately, I would have choosen to knit this cute hat had I seen your pic before. Maybe next...
    Take care and enjoy these last days of the autumn season.

  2. I love that sweater! It looks so warm and toasty and the color is perfecto!

  3. Wow, that is a beautiful sweater. The baby hat is really cute too. Glad to hear from you again. Take care. ~ Missy

  4. That sweater will look real good on me ! I guess you have been too busy
    to send it! ha ha! congratulations on finishing your sweater ! I hardly ever finish anything!

  5. Oohh... I've been looking for a "simple" (not lacy or cabled) cardigan I could wear to work. This one could be IT!

  6. How exciting to hear from you dear friend!:o) The sweater is beautiful, and love those sweet buttons! Loving the baby hat too.:o)

    I'm so trying to finish the scarf I am making for my Honey. I am nearing the finish line, only a couple days to go I hope.:o)

    You and the family enjoy a lovely weekend.



  7. Love your coasters...will have to check out how you made them :)

    Your sweater is gorgeous and such cute buttons. I bet you'll enjoy wearing it.

    ...and that baby hat is too it :)

    Good luck with your house will be nice to have you back on-line :)

  8. Hello!! I was so happy when I checked your blog and found something new! :-) Love, love, love the sweater. Hopefully, mine will turn out half as lovely. The buttons are perfect.

    I made the apple cake ... superb. I plan to make another soon. Thank you for the recipe.

    Hope all is well with you and the family. Are you snowed in? I was until a friend shoveled a path to the car for me today. So far, there is about 5 inches of snow with another storm on the way Thursday night. Winter showed itself a little early this year.

    Merry Christmas!
    Your West Virginia friend,

  9. Hey Tea! Glad you were able to check in! The sweater turned out great and that baby hat is too cute.
    I'e gotta a question.....
    Do you have and e-mail address I can get you at...I had something I wanted to give you. If you're leary to give it out I completely understand. Here's mine..........
    Hope the house sale goes well, but I sure will miss those pics of the Smokies!

  10. I love all the knitted wonders. And the buttons are the cutest, aren't they. I am a button fanatic in addition of fiber, fabric, and all-thing craft.

    Thanks for stopping by this morning and your nice feedback on my toque ^.^ Happy Solstice!


Thank you for your comments!
