Helby of the Dead

After a long day at work, then household chores and dinner, there's nothing more relaxing than plopping down in front of the TV with yarn and needle in hand. Once my hands get into the rhythm, I become a zombie. With my eyes jumping between my hands and the TV screen, conversation is pretty much out of the question, unless you're happy with a grunt or groan for an answer. On a side note - can't wait to start watching scary movies for Halloween!

Speaking of Halloween, I've crocheted many decorations for the season (to be posted in October). I have some leftover yarn with which I started a granny square afghan. Not exactly sure where it's going yet - for myself, as a gift, or a donation - but I'm sure I'll update you when it's finished.

And to spice it up a bit, I found a pattern online for small crocheted butterflies which I'll attach to it. Any recommendations for colors?

I've also started working on some homemade Christmas presents. No cheating - I won't post anything about this until December. But with these projects comes more fabric scraps. More fabric scraps means more scrap quilt squares:

With Fall approaching, I'm sure we'll break out the candles once the temperature drops, so I've been collecting containers to use for recycling worn-out candles. Glass jars, tin cans... anything that'll work.

It's going to be a busy season - but I'll be happy and relaxed in zombie mode.
