Fall decorations, an Autumn swap, and 2 finishes.....
These two photo's are the pumpkin I made this weekend. I took a couple of separate patterns and combined them to make the pumpkin. I think it turned out really cute.
This is the Fall decoration on my dining room table. In a post a while back I showed you the turkey and pumpkin I came across when I was cleaning out closets, that our son had made back in grade school. The other pumpkin is one I made this weekend.
This is the pinkeep Joni made for me for the Autumn Swap, that was held on one of the online groups I belong to. This is so beautiful and certainly reminds me of October. I love it Joni.
This is the entire collection of items Joni sent me for the Autumn Swap. She not only made the pinkeep, but included some limited edition GAST threads, an Autumn decorated notepad, and a wonderful packet of pumpkin patch scented envelope. Thank you ever so much Joni.
This is from the chart, October 31 pin cushion, designed by Stacy Nash. I love this small token to Halloween. Instead of using it for a pin cushion, I put a twine hanger on it and hung it up, as a reminder for my DH, cause my birthday is October 31. The large safety pin and buttons are out of my MIL's button tin.
This is the Autumn Sampler chart, from LHN, I finished about 10 days ago. I showed it when I started on it. I am going to do the other seasons in this series and make them into a quilted banner.
