FNwF's and it's September!

September and autumn are here! On Monday it was 35 degrees here - Friday we just managed 20 degrees. Now I don't mind hot weather and I quite enjoy cold weather but I do not like sudden fluctuations like that!

However, cool weather and showers of rain meant that my FNwF started after lunch.

My first job was to attach the frame to this little purse - it has been waiting a while and really took very little time once I got started.
Having got that job out of the way I was free to start on a couple of little gifts for my Christmas box - The side panels here are complete, I just need to make them up into pencil cases next time.
And so to Friday evening and I finished crocheting together my squares.

Very pleased with how these have turned out plus, apart from a few scraps, I have used up all the coloured cottons leftover from my Hygge and I think I may have enough grey to do one row of dc all around the outside. The border will need more than that but I have a ball of a bluey green wool which I think will do the trick. 
 Many thanks to Cheryl for hosting FNwF - visit her blog here to see what everyone was doing.
A reminder that the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade starts on Monday. The link up page is here.
