Fall is such a great time of year and I love to decorate and create for this season. I always put lots of fall berries in wooden bowls and crocks, it just seems to give enough color and warmth to the decor. Above is a crosstitch piece that I just finished. I made a small wool pillow and attached the crosstitch to the front using a primitive stitch. Notice the strawberry along side of the pillow......I wanted to make it look fall-ish so I used an orange fabric with black dots and made the stem and leaves out of black wool. They are so darn cute that I have to make more!!
Another one of my crosstitch pillows sits in a wooden bowl with berries, a prim pumpkin and one of my Jo Morton little quilts ( its hard to see in this pic). Jo's fabrics play well with the colors of fall.
Above is a punchneedle that I designed and I am calling her "Wanda Witch". After much thought as what to do with her, and also wondering what to do with some bittersweet that I had, the ditty bag seemed like the perfect solution. So Sunday afternoon " Wanda Witch" ditty bag was created. The outer part of the bag is from a piece of wool from my stash, the lining is a primitve star fabric and the handle is a black ribbon. I think that I love this bag!
Another pic of fall decorations and "Miss Molly" in the window. Miss Molly does not like the camera as you can see....but she did pose for a second. This kitty has some attitude!
