Fall is Finally Here!

Yes, and I am very happy about that!! Hi there cloud friends.  I imagine some of you have given me up for lost.  Well, I just don't know where time goes!! I have not been good with posting but I have been stitching so I will show you what I have been up to.  This has been the nastiest summer I remember since we have moved to the NW several years ago.  It was the hottest, driest summer on record.  That plus all the fires in BC,Oregon, and here in WA have made it very smoky at times.  We got AC a few years ago and this summer has made it so worthwhile. I am looking forward to a nice Fall even with the usual rain.  I have kept my garden watered but our yard looks more like hay than grass.  Well, on to some stitching.

 All of my finishes are from Plum Street Samplers.  I have loved this one for a long time.  It is called "Grim Gourds". I did use WDW Onyx for all the black in all three designs.  I had lots left from last year's Ghoultide.
 Plus I also used lots of GA Gingersnap.  That has become my go to orange.

This is PSS's Halloween Hornbook.  This was so much fun to stitch.  Valley House Primitives is making frames for both of these.
 Here we have A Bowl Full of Scaries, Scary One. This is a large pin keep that sits on a shelf in my powder room.  I got that beautiful shelf many years ago at a yard sale at the Workshops of David T. Smith.  I absolutely love his work.  When I win the lottery, I am going to fly him out here and have him redo my kitchen! That is one of those battery operated timer candles.  It looks so great in there after dark. The next pictures are of the dahlias in my garden.  They are so beautiful right now.

 I have never had such big hydrangeas.  That is my DH's hand!!

Well, thank you so much for not giving up on me.  I hope Fall will be very good to all of you.  I think our world has seen enough misery for a while! Thanks so much for joining me today!
