Well I'm off to join my daughter and granddaughter for dinner and then do a little Trick and Treating with Cadie around the neighborhood. Us girls are solo since my husband, son and son-in-law are at Arlington TX to see the Rangers play at the World Series. Happy Halloween and stay safe!

What a beautiful time of the year. Pumpkins, acorns, falling leaves, and a change in the weather. It all sounds like autumn to me. With that said, time to add a touch of fall to your decor. How about decorating your dining table, a hutch, coffee table, or your wall?
The whimsical table top above is made with hand-dyed wool. I used a rich orange for the pumpkin, fall colors for the leaves and a golden color for the autumn moon and star. It is all hand-appliqued with DMC floss.
For those who love hand-stitching, below is one of my favorite patterns by I Done My Best. A hand-stitched pumpkin patch. I used osnaburg fabric for the background and plaid fall colors for the borders. This can be hung or set on a table.

I received my swap doll today in the mail and to my pleasant surprise - not only did I get a doll, but I got TWO! I had hinted a little that I really wanted a Christmas doll to decorate for the holidays and here they are - Holly and Ivy. What a pair of cuties! Holly and Ivy are sisters, and as the story goes they traveled all the way from Northern Idaho (just 35 miles from the Canadian border). Their dresses are adorable with printed Scotties and buttons to match. They are holding bags with shiny pennies for good luck, good fortune and good health.
Thank you Ilona! I love my Christmas dolls and I'm sure they will love Texas.
