Is It Fall Yet?
I decided not to go to church this morning - at the football game Friday night I got too hot and was sick for hours after. I had cold chills and was nauseated and it left me exhausted. So I slept in today and then put out some of my fall decorations. I love doing that! I also cut up a dozen apples I had, added some sugar (just a tiny bit), a spoon of brown palm sugar, and some apple pie spice. It's in the slow cooker now simmering and filling the air with a sweet aroma.
I've done a bit of stitching this week. I completed Peppermint (Little House pattern) and Joy...
This is a wool banner (pattern by Primitive Gatherings) that I'll use on one of my mantels this Christmas.
And just for fun here's a picture of two of my favorite fall decorations - two small hand stitched wool pumpkin pillows and a hand appliqued Pumpkin quilt.
Not great pictures but we've finally gotten a cloudy day with a hope of a little rain! It's been a long time since we had rain so we have our fingers crossed.
I started working on a new cross stitch piece last night, a primitive piece, and after getting two rows of the border in realized I used two threads and should have used one. It would be ok except I think I might not have enough thread (it was a kit). I guess I'll go back and take it out. :( And even though I worked one whole day this week cleaning in my sewing room it's going to take another day to get everything put away. Guess that will be my project for the next couple of days since I have a meeting and some errands to complete as well. Have a great week ya'll and blessings to you!
