Fall Decorating

I had to start with this darling pumpkin photo, courtesy of Is this not the cutest pumpkin for someone who loves to sew? I'm on the hunt now for a bunch of black buttons. In the meantime, come see some of my fall decorating!

I love fall! And I love to get in the spirit of the season with a little fall decorating. My front door wreath (above) has a wooden leaf pick that gets swapped out in December for a folk art santa. I also add a few green picks with red berries, and my front door is covered for 2 seasons! The little welcome plaque (above) sports pumpkins in the fall, they'll also get a quick change-out in December.

I have a small island in the kitchen, and my Pat Sloan pumpkin runner sits on it. One of my newest quilts (below) is Glimmers, a Jo Morton pattern. Each little square finishes at .5 inches. The candle is called "sugar cookie", and is more yellow/gold than the photo shows. Don't you love the perky polka-dot bow!

Three shots of my fireplace. The photo above shows the top shelf with my patterned dishes and my 3 Jim Shore angels.

Here's "Boo" on the wire frame finally! I ran into A C Moore this morning and all the fall silk flowers were marked way down...I love that! So I decided to change out the summer spray in my blue crock and add the fall color. I need to find one more ear of Indian corn, though! The other quilt is from "Country Threads Goes to Charm School." Each block has 4 trees in it.

Okay, I'm off to my sewing room to finish up a few more small quilts.
Till next time, keep stitchin'!
