A Small Project

I have a work colleague who is THE BEST. She leaves me stuff on my desk all the time, like this.

And this - home made soup! It was good!
Or this - lemon basil from her garden:
Or blueberry and peach cake. Um YUM!
Last week she left me this bag.
And inside it were a TON of cashmere sweaters! 100% cashmere! She is a thrift store junkie so she has many of these sweaters, and I mentioned to her that I would like to try and take them apart to recycle the yarn. I have no idea how to do this or how long it will take me, but I am SO excited to try! I can't wait for some free time so I can get started!

Pumpkins and Apples

I have been in contact with a woman who has requested that I make these hats for a pumpkin patch. I made her one pumpkin one, and we tweaked the design a little bit. She also requested an apple one. Here's what I came up with.
Aren't they cute?? And they're fairly simple to make, I just used a basic cap pattern, and then free-handed the leaves and stem. I should write up a proper pattern of the notes I scribbled. In the meantime, enjoy a picture of these cute hats!

Pumpkin hat

I made up a pumpkin hat! I used a basic chemo hat pattern for the hat...
…and then free-styled the leaf, stem and curly Q. I think it turned out nicely and it really put me in a fall mood! (More on this project later.)

Some Rent film

Last weekend I did some on camera stuff for the production of Rent that I'm doing.
It was a gorgeous day out on this balcony.
Look at that view!
Of course, they had snacks. Healthy fruit and Skittles!
I really love on camera stuff. There was a lot of waiting around, as there usually is in film work, but it's worth it for the half hour or so of camera work.

Aquafit

Last weekend I tried aquafit for the first time! Now you know I love Zumba, but my sisters have been going to aquafit classes and I thought I would join them. It was a nice, low-impact change and boy, is it nice being in the water. I'll definitely go again :)

Fall bloom

It's the first day of fall! We had gorgeous summer weather on the weekend and then woke up to cloudy skies. But look, one last little summer bloom wants to say hello before the cold weather hits. Happy Autumn!
