...inside the house! Well today the temperature hit 90 again not exactly fallish, but tomorrow is suppose to be cooler. I am soooo ready for Fall. This is my mantle in the family room, the polka dot chicken quilt has been replaced with a polka dot pumpkin quilt.(I told you I REALLY LIKE polka dots, remember?)
This quilt is from a Sandy Gervais panel and all I did was outline different elements. Not fancy but I'm happy with it. And here is a full view of my pumpkin populated mantle...
I like mercury glass pumpkins. I have 2 medium sized ones on the mantle....
and then there is this jumbo one on top of the television. All of these pumpkins have jack-o-lantern faces on the back side. I'll turn them around and put up my witchy quilt for Halloween.
And then there is this sweet little scarecrow. My youngest son gave me this last evening - a sweet present from a sweet boy.
On the cross stitch front I did get quite a bit done on the No.3 house of the Anniversaries of the Heart series.
I haven't decided on the personalization for this one either. I may go ahead and do the little verse that is stitched over one thread. I'm afraid if I put all the over one stitching off till the end that I'll never finish. I really don't enjoy stitching over one thread but there is no way around it with the BBD pieces.
I stopped at my local cross stitch shop today and picked up some more flosses and a couple of little graphs. I want to add some cross stitched accent pieces to my Fall displays. So many fun things to do, so little time!
Happy stitching -
