Settling in to Fall

I am a summer girl, but I love fall too – the first chill in the air, sweater weather, tennis, and crock pot Sundays with the NFL on TV. I seem to be at my most productive when it comes to sewing and I love the way the holidays pile up – first Halloween with silly costumes and trick or treating, then Thanksgiving with the warmth if a great meal with family and friends, followed by the holidays which always involve a lot of sewing, visiting family, many parties, and two weeks off from work. Even though Maddie is 15 now and a little too old for me to make a costume I still love Halloween. It isn’t a surprise at all that I am pushing the season a little bit and spent the better part of Sunday making Halloween items for my home, my etsy store, and upcoming craft shows.


Halloween Table Topper

This cute little table topper features owls with stars and moons on a black background with orange and gold points to the star. A closer look:


A Closer Look

The back is a pretty orange and black polka dot:
