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!

"A Pumpkin Sampler"
Window Garden Designs
Stitched on 28ct. Annabelle Potato w/DMC

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

LHN Thread Pack w/Crescent Colors
Stitched on 28ct. Annabelle Potato

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!

Great job on the Autumn decorating.

Cute house with its autumn touches. I don't anyone who doesn't love this time of year. I especially miss the midwest about this time. Cute pumpkin sampler - have never seen that pattern before.

Wonderful fall decorations. This is a pretty time of year, although I'm getting very tired of raking leaves constantly, LOL.

Both your pumpkin projects turned out beautifully, what perfectly timed finishes. I'm also working on Acorns, with it being about half done. The threadpacks are such fun projects.
