Stashbusting Sunday: The End of Summer

Well, summer vacation has officially ended.
Today was my first day back at school.
Unfortunately, that means I won't have as much free time on my hands.
But in the past week, there has been a whole lot of crocheting going on.

Bowls and rock covers.
Tiny grannies for #grannysquareday on Instagram
A new flower pattern that you can find here,
And bookmarks, too.
I plan to make more of the last two patterns in different colors and will hang them from their tails as window decorations.

I do like quick and easy projects.  Even moreso now that I'm back at work.
You can find all the summer stashbusting projects at Linda's Crafty Corner.
Have a super Sunday!

I've loved reading all your posts over the last few weeks and see your beautiful crochet work Tammy!
I'm working too and find I haven't the same energy as I did when I was... retired!
On the plus side of the ledger there is more structure in my life and I'm earning!

Dearest Tammy,
You always manage to make the most out of your days, even during work periods. Lovely projects you completed.
Enjoy your week.

Happy back to school Tammy, take a deep breath and try to grab some crochet time when you can.

Betsy said...

I refuse to believe that summer is almost over! lol. I feel like I've lost so much time this year since I've been away from home and the lake so much this year. Your "makes" are so pretty. I want to make a few more covered rocks and maybe some flower bookmarks for small gifts. Have fun at work Tammy!

School starts tomorrow for our kids. The summer vacation time might be over, but we still have the heat and humidity. Ugh!

Hi Tammy,

Hope back to school is going well.
Also love all your pretty crocheting work - the flowers are sweet.

Everything looks so pretty. I admire your talents, Tammy.
Hard to believe it is back to school time already. I can imagine it takes a bit of adjusting to jump back into that mode.

Kit said...

I love my own crocheted book mark. They work so well and my cat loves it too...LOL Have a great school year. I start back the 27th. :) Kit

It's always a little sad to give up our free time --it's nice to be able to meander through the day passing time on a whim.
I love all the stash busting you have done! you have been a busy girl on your vacation.
All the best as the new school year gets under way!

Ooooooo, those little dodads hanging in the window are going to be so cute. Can you share a photo of them when you hang them, Tammy? Susan

Officially, I still have a week...we start the 25th, the kids a week later...but unofficially this is it...have to set up the classroom....

Lots of great little projects...I've made a few of those flower bookmarks..

Summer ended far too soon for you. Love all your crocheting. The flowers hanging from the window sound fabulous. Enjoy your work week.

Good morning Tammy hope your first week back at school goes smooth.
I have always loved our crochet-especially your covered rocks-I think those are so cool, and I love your bowl.
We have had a very very cool summer here this year-but this week mother nature decided to let us know it is really summer after all-so we will be the normal high heat with humidity from now til fall--enjoy your week Hugs Kathy

Linda said...

You've made a lot of pretty items and have had a lot of fun, but alas, yes, summer is officially over for us too. College classes begin today for my daughter. Of course, like where you are, summer weather persists for a while.... I know that I will likely still enjoy some pool days in our backyard before the end of September. Looks like our weather is really going to heat up here over the next week. Seems like that happens every year here when school starts.

For me, it's really just another day though since I've been at work all summer except for the small vacations. I can't say that I'm that happy about the arrival of 45,000 students this week, BUT that is why I work here. ;)

Have a great start to the new school year,

Willow said...

I love crocheting ~ usually pull out the yarn as soon as Fall sets in :))
Thanks for sharing your lovely work .

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Lovely. Each and every one! I can hardly believe summer is coming to a close. This has been the fastest year! Ouch! Stick to your new work policy so we can see more of these great projects to inspire the rest of us!! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

I hope the return to work is smooth and pleasant, and you certainly made good use of your vacation time, with visiting and travels! Was Jingles glad to have you back home?

You've been so busy again, Tammy. Lots of pretties. I like especially the bowls. They look so lovely combined with the painted and crocheted rocks.
