A Tunic!

Things are a changing!  There is a chill in the air and the leaves are turning bright oranges, yellows and reds!  I am thinking of the cold weather ahead!  Last year, I saw a super easy tunic to crochet on Cozy Things blog.  What you do is measure your widest part, divide by four and make 16 granny squares to that measurement.  Stitch them together and edge the ends and voila, you have a very cozy tunic.  I am amazed at how well this fits.  Of course it is made to size.  Forgive the very awkward selfie!
Well that is better.  I had some help on this one.  I like it so well I am making another one in greens.  It is like wearing your robe, just not as tacky!  
This is the view out my front door today.  It is rainy and cool.  I am so very grateful for the rain as it has been a very dry summer here in NH.  See the leaves?  They are so vibrant.  The color is lost a bit in the picture.  I am a resident peeper and go out just to see the leaves!  FABULOUS!
It is funny how your diet changes when the weather starts cooling.  You start thinking of soups and pies and stews.  This pie is so easy to make.  You make your favorite stew and then place a piece of flaky pastry on top and cook it in the oven for 25 minutes.  Heaven on a cool evening.


  1. so beautiful! but I wanted to see your smiling face. What a clever tunic! No fall in Texas yet...

  2. That's a great looking tunic! I might just have to try this one. I love warm and savory pies and the one you posted looks so good!
