Le Challenge - Toffee

Welcome to In The Boon Docks!

Hi! I am Lisa, wife, mother, grandmother, veteran, and artist. In a rural area of West Virginia, USA, my family and I, live with 3 dogs, 8 chickens, a squirrel, and miscellaneous deer (they live in our woods). We grow, can, and freeze, both fruits and vegetables. I will admit I am a awful cook but my husband is a culinary student.

I love to blog, blog hop, swap, sew, quilt, crochet, knit, and just about any DIY project. I am a fabric and Aurifil thread lover! Hopefully, some of the things I write about here will interest you and keep you entertained. If so, please leave a comment occasionally and follow.

Why am I telling you all this at the Monthly Le Challenge? I see a lot of new blogs each month and I figure if I don't know you, you probably don't know me! A little introduction into the happenings at "In The Boon Docks".

Now for Le Challenge

Here is a toffee photo I borrowed from Kessa's post! Looks yummy but a craft project?

When I first heard "Toffee" I thought I would be sitting this month out. I wondered where do they come up with this stuff. Then I remembered Lucy was involved and sometimes she has me laughing so hard, I almost ...You get the idea! Then came an email from Kessa and I saw her inspirations using the color Toffee. I started running around the house collecting up my crocheting, my photo fabric, and my iPad! I had just finished this scarf for this coming Winter last week. In what color you ask? Toffee! I have my entry for this month. Thank you Kessa!

My Work in progress hat!

I am linking up with Le Challenge!
