Autumn is here!

The weather is starting to turn a little cooler -- at least at night! And, after all, the calendar says that Autumn is here! So... I did a little bit of adding some color to the outside --

Here is my front porch. I added some fall leaf garland around the door, a fall wreath, and also some leaf garland and touches to the geranium basket and flower box.

Here is my birdhouse stand. I added garland to that too!

And, I've been doing some fall type stitching!

This was stitched just for fun... I think I'll finish it into a box type thing... or something else. Any suggestions?

I stitched "Pumpkins" as part of the SAL on the LHN/CCN Yahoo group. It stitched up really fast, and was a joy to stitch! I'm thinking of finishing this one into a flat fold stand-up. I also have the "Acorns" pack to stitch up this month, as part of the Thread Pack SAL.

I hope everyone is having a great Autumn! This is one of my favorite times of the year!

I am way behind on reading blogs.... My son says he thinks the power supply is dying in my computer.... :-( Good thing he can fix these types of things!

Happy Stitching! Thanks so much for stopping by, and leaving comments -- it is much appreciated!
