FALL COLORS



Everyone seems to be captivated with the wonderful fall colors and decorating is in full swing. I have really been enjoying the many blogs with fall decor and homemade items. Our friend Kim, who has Big Quilting Adventures daily, has designed a darling pumpkin quilt and has provided instructions for anyone who cares to create their own. Go to Kim's blog and look on the side bar for the Happy Jacks tutorial. I love the way these cute pumpkins bounce around on the quilt! I am a little slow mentioning this and Kim has moved on to other adventures, but it is not too late to get in on the action!


I have been decorating a little bit myself. This little display is sitting on the hearth in our living room. I picked up the decorated pumpkin last year on sale and am excited to finally be able to display it for a couple months. My little brown quilts that I love are scattered around the house and look really nice with the orange tones of fall.




Also, I just completed a little stitchery thing that I framed. Here is a little word to the wise: pick up pieces of orange wool whenever you see it, because you won't find it in the shops when you need it!

Isn't it a great pattern? I am making the pumpkin one. It is addictive, but I am trying to resist making more!

Awesome displays, Marcie. A word to the wise is sufficient re: orange wool.
