Blessings and Halloweenies

I hope everyone is enjoying this first weekend in October and the beautiful Fall weather.  The leaves are absolutely gorgeous in my neighborhood this year.  I don't know if it's because of the hot and dry summer but I certainly am enjoying the beautiful colors.

Of course I've been stitching and have a couple of finishes to share with you today.

Here is an old Blackbird Loose Feathers (from 2005).  This was just a joy to work on.   I personalized it with my daughters initials.

I also finished this cute little Halloween Design and made it into a pincushion filled with crushed walnut shells.  This was such a fun little pattern to work on.

I am working on a Thanksgiving design and a couple of Christmas designs but I really need to get going on some Christmas ornaments.  It just seems like this year is flying by and before we know it we will be singing Christmas carols!
 
Thanks as always for visiting with me -- I truly appreciate it.
 
Until next time.....
