a "yarn along" and a "stitch along"

3 years ago I made crocheted this simple shawl for Hannah (she was just 8 then) Olivia wears it ♥  I got some old peach wool from my husband's grandmother and am using it to make another shawl...I'm reading A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson, not a book that I recommend, but I just picked it up off the shelf at the library because I liked the picture of the dress and apple!  Never judge a book by its cover.  I plan to read Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon  & then, The Happiness of Pursuit by Davis Phinney next.
A friend when to Russia this summer and brought back that beautiful dress that was hers, about 20 years ago!  And Olivia is giving our chickens, Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Pepper, little bits of cheese for a treat.  ♥  You can see our Jerusalem artichoke is abloom with yellow flowers.  I plan to dig up some of their tubers to eat after the first frost.
Hannah (who is now 11 years old) and I are going to join in with the stitch along here, which officially starts September 22nd, the first day of fall!  ♥  Will you join in?

I am so mad about poncho's at the moment even though we are going to get really hot really soon! I also love the stitch along sampler and thought about doing it too, but some of the pictures really dont fit in with our Queensland winter! Can't wait to keep up with yours though!
