I love fall. Normally I love Halloween too, but this year, I just couldn't get into it...so when I decorated, I only put out Autumn goodies...most of the Jack-o-lanterns, bats, witches , and things that go bump in the night stayed safely up in the rafters.
Here are a few things that are on the mantle right now. I made those 3 stuffed pumpkins a few years ago...they were way simple and I like how they are all a little different but still the same.
When I cleaned out ("de-baby-fied") Connor's room, there were a few 12x12 frames that needed a new home. A few years ago we did an autumn swap a block exchange and, being the slacker I am, the squares were still sitting in a box. Random? Well....a little black spray paint, some masking tape, cardboard and 25 minutes later (I had to wait for the paint to dry)...these were done. The wreath was a prototype... I ended up making 6 or 8 of the scarecrow...My aunt made 6 or 8 of the wreath (and her stitching is better), but I used mine because there were several fabrics that were the same in each...and I'm all about the matchy-matchy!
Okay...enough stalling...I'm off to work on Christmas projects.
