A WIP and Some Fall Pictures!


Fall finally seems to have come to the Pacific NW.  It hasn't been 80 for some time, thank goodness. We have had several mornings with fog and that makes great conditions for photographing spider webs! I think those spiders  are nature's engineers! Sorry, I could not get the photo with the web to show on the blog.
For my current project I choose another design from a  BBD  chart. It is from the booklet ,"Sisters".  When BBD came out with their designs last Fall, I could not resist them. I'm working on " At First Cock's Crow."  This is very much a Halloween piece, both the words and colors speak Halloween! I like that it has the look of a sampler.
My DH and I  went on a little road trip to a pumpkin patch last week. I think we were the only people there without children! We stopped in a shop and I saw my last purchase(hopefully) for this Halloween season, a great witch dummy board!

At First Cock's Crow by BBD.  I am using the suggested floss but I had a nice piece of left-over Lambswool 32 count, so that is the linen.

I love the GA color Fragrant Cloves.  It is such a pretty orange.

I always wanted a dummy board  in front of the fireplace.  This is the perfect size.



 A pumpkin patch is the epitome of Fall for me. 


Is there a better way to end a great day than with a sugar -free mocha at one of your favorite coffee places?

Thanks for joining me today!!! Have a wonderful week ahead.

  11. Barb- I don't know which I love more - the felted witch at the top of your blog or your new dummy board. My birthday is Oct. 23rd so I am a huge Fall/Halloween lover. And remember, you are NEVER too old to visit an pumpkin patch!

  14. A wonderful Halloweeny start. Didn't know what you meant by dummy board so I continued through the post to find out! It looks great in your fireplace. Always love to see pumpkins, so Autumn.

  15. Your new BBD start is looking so promising. I'm not sure if I have ever seen the complete piece so I'm looking forward to seeing your finished piece. I'm alwaqys drawn towards buying new BBD patterns but I haven't bought one for quite a while. I have so so many of the older ones and want to get some of them stitched up before I buy a new one. Seeing them on the blogs muct be enough, lol.

    A great fun day out at the pumpkin farm.
