I love Pumpkin!!

I don't know if it's the fall season or just the deliciousness of that big beautiful orange gourd. But I love everything about it, especially the color.

While web surfing I came across this fabulous Pumpkin Sugar Scrub and I knew I had to try it, and here's how it came out.

The instructions say to use as a mask and scrub, so that's what I did, also when I had it all mixed, I thought the 3 tablespoons of sugar that it was calling for wasn't enough "scrub" for me, so I added another 3 tablespoons and it worked perfect. After it was done, my skin felt super moisturize and smooth. I will make this again.

5 Tablespoons of Pumpkin

3 Tablespoons of Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon of oil (I cheated and used olive oil)


Enough for another mask, stored in the fridge

Baby Suprise Jacket.

I love the idea of this cute jacket that is knit in one piece. As you follow the pattern along it's a bit strange, but in the end it really does work out well. I can't believe how easy it actually was. All in all I think it was a grand total of about 2 or 3 hours a day for a week, so it went pretty quick.

The hardest thing about it was all the counting. The increase rows just didn't work well with the place markers.

I will make this again and next time I will try to use a self striping yarn for a little more color.

Blog Giveaway!!

This is my first blog giveaway, and if it goes well I may have more in the future.

Sunday was our annual Stitch N' Pitch event. We had so much fun and got a bunch of fun giveaways. But this year I got a duplicate grab bag prize.

So I figured what's the best thing to do with it...

Banana Cranberry Muffins

I had a few bananas going south again and I didn't want to toss them out so I wanted to make muffins with them.

I found a great recipe for Banana Bread. The only thing I did different was added dried cranberries and baked them for 25 minutes at 350 and they're perfect.
