My favorite time of the year has arrived!
It seems like September disappeared in a blur and Autumn arrived in a hurry.
So happy to see cooler temps, leaves turning color and pumpkins on the porch!
I am an October baby so this has always been my favorite month since I was a child.
Time has gotten away from me lately from working in the studio, taking a week to visit my daughter and taking a few day trips with Pog to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
My daughter and I did a “little” shopping during our week together.
We visited The Rusty Bucket in Cary, Thistle Bee Quilt Shoppe in Goldsboro and
one of our favorites Lone Star Mercantile in Fuquay-Varina.
What can I say? Seems like we can never have enough fabric.
|There are a couple of velvets there too and some chenille trim for snowmen.|
In the meantime I ordered wool from Heavens to Betsy.
I am in love with the black/orange stripe so I may have to order more of that!
|The black/orange on the bottom is a reversible stripe.|
Also during our week, my daughter started making her first doll.
The easiest one to start with is Raggedy Ann and she did a great job!
I like how she put her own twist on fabric colors.
We will finish up the clothes on our next visit.
I also stopped at one of my favorite antique shops on the way home
and found a fifteen dollar firkin.
It is not particularly old and missing the lid but will be great with a little cleaning.
It looked like someone had already tried to clean it and then make it look rustic
so I don’t mind working on this one a little more.
I may put a small tree in it this Christmas.
The table runners and dishtowels I was working on are finally finished
and one of the looms now has a warp for more runners.
For now though, I have Fall Fever and have started making a few pumpkins.
These have a surprise and I will show you soon what that is,
but for now here is a little peak of the pumpkin fun going on it the studio.
The white one is a snowball that decided to sneak in on the fun!
