Finished up this little stack of pumpkins this morning.  Just a few more cobs of corn to stuff and I'll be finished with fall creations.  That doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy fall and Halloween while I'm sewing for winter, though!  I love fall and Halloween - the colors, the folklore, the  anticipation and childhood wonder.  I love good old fashioned trick or treating, and the porches that are magically transformed into haunted houses for just one night.  The wind blowing the leaves, the bright harvest moon, ghost stories around a campfire.  

Tonight I'm taking my daughter to see "Hotel Transylvania".  It is animated and looks real cute.

Hope you have a BOO-tiful weekend!

Ahhh.  The last beach day of the year.  A little different from my last beach day pic from last year, no swimming on this day.  But a lot of relaxing.  Yes, those are my skull & cross-bone shoes.

The other day I shared our sunrise on Lake Huron with you.  This is our sunset on Lake Michigan.  
Yep, we shut the beach down.

My Black Cat, "13" and pumpkin were featured in an etsy treasury today:
You can click on it to see lots of wonderful black kitties!

Hope you have a relaxing, creative day ~*~Lisa

This is the view my husband snapped with his camera on the way to work this morning.  It is the sun rising over Lake Huron.  He was traveling across the Mackinac Bridge, where Lake Huron and Lake Michigan meet.

This is the view I had from work through a rain spattered window after that beautiful sun rose above the clouds to hide and the wind blew the clouds inland for a good downpour.  

I hope your view this weekend brings you joy, whether it's a sunrise, sunset, rainstorm or your craft area!

Found this stitchery pattern by Chestnut Junction yesterday and was determined to git-r-done!
So much so I was up until 1:00 a.m.  Think I'm gonna stain it tonight.  I'm not a big stitcher but have been admiring some prim stitching lately and I really enjoyed doing this.  Used osnaburg (that word always throws me for some reason! LOL!) fabric to stitch on and sewed some hunter green & cream homespun to the back then stuffed it firm. 

Hope you are having fun stitching something up today too!

Well, now that summer is wound down, it looks like everyone is back in their sewing rooms creating for fall! Including me...been working on some candy corn for my etsy shop.

Finished another Doodle Bunny too!   She's just a simple sketch, come to life.

Been having fun with witchie-poo hats & pumpkins too!
Can't wait to see what everyone else is working on this fall and look forward to catching up with you!
