Hi there ! It’s beginning to look like autumn in Georgia.  The leaves are changing color and the weather is just perfect.  I wish it could be like this all year long.

So today, I brought my Lexus for a car wash and as I expected the line was long.

I came prepare to kill time.  I had my yarn, crochet hook and collar pattern.

I decided to make this simply pretty collar to embellish my daughter’s plain clothes and imbue them with personality.

I also made a pair of shoes to go with the collar.  If you like to make this shoes, you can visit my previous blog post {Crochet} House slippers for the free pattern.
