Fall Bucket List: Drink Fancy Tea

It's officially Fall, time to start working off the points from my Fall Bucket List! The first one is definitely an easy one as I'm part of a tea loving family: Drink Fancy Tea!

Well, I definitely did so and here's exactly what I drank just recently...

Green tea No. 929 from TeeGschwendner, Apple Coriander (Website)

Herb tea No. 501 from Hall of Tea, Wellness Edition Cinnamon-Cocoa (Website)

Chai blend No. 946 from TeeGschwendner, Karl-Heinz the Autumn Tea (Website)

Stash-Busting Scarf

Just recently I realized the end of the year is coming nearer and nearer but my stash didn't really get any smaller so I thought it was about time to do some major stash-busting. The result? A colorful scarf :)

It measures 155 cm. Turned out quite nice :)

Fall Bucketlist 2013

I must confess, I stole this idea from my good friend Kristin. She shared her bucketlist over at pinterest:

I loved the idea and therefore created my own bucketlist for this year's Fall including some of Kristin's points as well as new ones:

What are your plans for Fall? Do you maybe have some special crafting projects in mind?

Someone started to knit

I've got big plans for Fall and Winter: I want to learn how to knit plus then knit a scarf. Well, I started to work on this plan a couple of days ago. Thanks to YouTube I figured out a few basics already. But still, I'm everything but a fast knitter so I guess knitting that scarf will take me a couple of weeks...

I'll keep you updated, maybe at the end of Winter I'm able to show you the finished scarf ;)

Felt Owl Egg Cozy

While flipping through the pages of my favorite crafting supplies catalog I saw this:

And I so had to make my own! As there wasn't a pattern available I again had to improvise. And that's the result:

They are actually quite easy to make, it's just the sewing part that takes a lot of time. The pattern is also quite simple. Use mine if you like, but make sure you print it out at about 150%, otherwise the cozies will be too small.

I wish all of you a wonderful week!
