I keep this small tree up all year so that I can enjoy a little bit of Halloween everyday. Thanks to each one of you who stitched for me in one of the Halloween exchanges ~ you helped to make my tree look amazing.
I get to add this beauty to the tree...
Lily sent me this wonderful HOE Halloween Exchange ornament. What a great design and so beautifully stitched and finished. I love the colored wire hair and tiny little button at the tip of the witch hat...too cute! Thank you again, Lily.
Keeping in the theme of "witchy" I recently finished this design:
Designer: La D Da
Design: Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead
I found the perfect frame. It looks a bit spooky.
My DS asked if I could make a fall table runner for his GF so I stitched this:
He did not give me much notice so I decided to make a simple quilted table runner using two pieces of fabric. The center is from Moda's Fall Harvest line. I like it because it looks like cornucopias.
This is my favorite time of year. I love all things fall ~ the colors, the climate, the food. One of my favorite vegetables is butternut squash and I have been cooking quite a bit of it. This is what's cooking at my house:
Such a super easy, delicious side dish!

And here is what's hanging around at my house:
These little Halloween Byers Choice Kindles are adorable and can "hang out" just about anywhere!
