Hello, October!








You are the month of chilly but enjoyable weather, darkening skies, colorful lawns, and damp mornings. You are my last month of pregnancy, my last month of having only one child, my last month of 'normal' for awhile. You are the promise of celebration after celebration after celebration. The start and end of a season in itself.

xoxo,
Rachel

You look fabulous! Lucky girl to look so fantastic this late in your pregnancy-glowing!

Love the crocheted garland-do you have a link to the directions? I made a fabric leaf garland for my mantel this year-but loving the crocheted one!

Such a *lovely* post.

Thank you for sharing it with me :).

Holly S,

I don't have any instructions for the leaves or acorns but the garland strand is just a single chain, triple crochet row with two stitches in between while skipping a stitch after the first 8" or so, and then a single row. I'm not good with the lingo to know if that is even going to translate! It was a 'make it up as you go along' type of project.

Good luck!

Sugar Sweet Sunshine said...

OMG! You look super cute! Reminds me of myself when I was pregnant too. I had my daughter in the beginning of November 4 years ago so I can relate - October is last "normal" month! Enjoy!! P.S. Any ideas for your Halloween costume?

I'm a creative writing major, and this post was breathtakingly beautiful Miss Rachel.

If I look as good as you when I am pregnant I will be a very happy lady. My birthday is in October so Ruby and I might end up sharing a birthday.
