Happy Halloween everyone! I thought in true Halloween fashion I should post something scary... It just so happens I found something truly frightening in my yarn basket. Now, fellow crafters, if you are faint of heart, you may not want to continue reading. But if you dare, what follows is pure terror...

I've scheduled this post ahead of time seeing as how we'll most likely lose power due to Frankenstorm... This picture is from Monday afternoon when it has just started to sprinkle and the wind has picked up a little. Hope everyone who's in its path stays safe!!!

I've been emailing back and forth with my sister in Brooklyn about Thanksgiving. When we hear "holiday dinner," we immediately think of the table and the crafting opportunities... We've already come up with some colors and elements we'd like to incorporate and Gin has even set up a Thanksgiving '12 Inspiration board on Pinterest. I also thought I could share our projects and ideas with you as we go!

As we're nearing colder and colder weather, (although I heard it's supposed to be close to 70 this weekend... weird), I want to make sure I have enough blocks to start putting my scrapghan together! Curling up under a blanket with a fire going and a nice cup of tea in hand... oh where was I? Ah yes, so I've made another block inspired by a book I recently finished.

"Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere- on water and land."

I'm going to split up the Granny Arrows Tutorial into three parts. This is Part 1, the basic block. Part 2 will be the two colored diagonal version, and Part 3 will include ideas for joining the blocks, with a tutorial for the join-as-you-go method. Hope you like it!
