Hearts And Yarns For October.

Posted on | October 8, 2018 | 13 Comments

It seems to take a little longer here, but Spring has arrived. This year it has been gradual with the days steadily warming up but  a few cold ones still being thrown in. My trees like to announce the arrival of Spring and the warmer days.

It is time for The October Bunny Hill Hearts to be ready.  We have done well with Joan, Shez and Jeanette all working on our little snowies.

My two are ready to show their faces.

As always, one completely in felt and the other with a fabric background.

In the originals they are representing Halloween and collecting treats. Halloween is not a big event here so I was happy for my snowies to simply enjoy collecting moonbeams (or moons).

I am amazed that we only have two months to go. They have been so easy to keep up with and I am delighted with the collection that is building. Thanks go to the other lovely ladies who are keeping me on track. Make a visit to see their versions for this month as well.

My other distraction at the moment is crochet. I have been making mandalas that will have corners added to make squares, then sewn together into a blanket. They are about 10 inches across. There are 25 in the full blanket made up of six different colourway combinations. This is my progress so far.


However!!! Once I had made the second group I had an inkling to change my mind and just go with that colourway for the entire blanket. Now I really have  a tricky decision to make. Some hard thinking needs to be done over the next few days.

If that is all I have to worry about, life is easy.

Cheers, Karen

    Lovely hearts as always :-) A fun way to swap out the Halloween theme. I love your Manadalas as well…I’m wondering what decision you’ve made?!

  • Joan says:

    I love your October Snow hearts! Nice to see that spring has arrived for you too. We got our first taste of winter with snow yesterday.
    As cold as it was crocheting would be the perfect way to pass the day along. Love those mandalas.

    I wish it was spring here! Congratulations on your finish! I know the feeling! You did a beautiful job.

    Your snowmen are coming along! They are so cute. But your crochet, OMG! I wish I could do that!

  • Frances Arnold says:

    Such cute snowmen!!! Both colorways are great….it may be a hard choice!!

    Glad that it is warming up. We FINALLY have some weather that feels like Autumn.

  • Nancy says:

    Your trees are beautiful and your hearts are adorable. I have to ask, is it strange to make winter snowmen for Christmas in December when you’re obviously beginning spring and summer where you live?

  • Linda says:

    Ah yes, your words ‘collecting moonbeams’ made me smile too! Another pretty pair to join your group.

  • I have to say, I like that second colorway a lot. I like your snow men too! Cuteness!

  • Wow, those trees are beautiful!!! Great job keeping up with the hearts. And I love your crochet project! I can see how it would be tough to decide about the colorway.

  • Kyle Redente says:

    Your trees definitely are a beautiful sign of spring as my trees are busy dropping their leaves. I love your change to your October heart. Collecting moonbeams is a lovely thought.

  • Lesley says:
