Off to it's new home!

This time in our Flirty Apron Swap Shawnee chose for us to make a table runner instead of aprons. I'm pretty much game for anything if it involves sewing! Once I got my partner I saw she had a round table and no fall decorations. So, I decided to make a round runner (is there such a thing?) and applique fall leaves and acorns on it in all fall fabric. It was so much fun once I got my size down for the runner. I love to applique and love the way it looks when it's all done. As you can see from my last post, I'm so ready for fall, cool weather and much needed family time.
My package leaves today for California. I hope she likes it .. along with the tuck-ins!

I couldn't wait !!!

I got back from Round Top this weekend and seeing all the fall decorations there, feeling the FINALLY cool air here in Texas sure put me in the holiday spirit. Sunday morning I got up bright and early and started pulling my summer decorations and getting those fall ones out.

For some reason I wasn't really in the "halloween" spirit this year. I don't have little ones and living in the country there is no trick or treaters so I opted to leave the goblins and ghouls in the closet and bring on the pumpkins!

I bought a new table cloth last year after Thanksgiving so I couldn't wait to get it on the table! I ironed it and on it went! Love it! I threw up a few other things and realized I need more. So, with over a month to go .. I still have time to buy/make more fall harvest decorations!

I bought some new Pecan Coffee and this Saturday I'll be sitting at my table or on my front porch admiring the pumpkins and sipping on my coffee .. maybe I'll wrap up in one of my old quilts .. want to join me??
