Rainy Fall Days and Other Delights

It looks like we are headed for a couple of rainys days. I can't wait, I love rainy days in the fall. It freshens everything up and all of the flowers shoot out some new blooms before they get frost. I also get a lot of stitching done! I have some projects I have been trying to wrap up.

Every year about this time we plan a day for the family and we do a hayride and carve pumpkins. we usually follow that with a spaghetti supper and my daughter-in-laws Apple Pie. it is the best apple pie I have ever eaten, hands down! She is an excellent cook , and we all look forward to her apple pie. Of course, the grandkids have fun throwing each other in the leaves and trying to slime each other with pumpkin goo. It gets a little messy, so we do it in the garage and we store our little pumpkin carvers in a drawer so they are handy. The dads usually have to help with making the big hole at the top of the pumpkin, but after that the kids dig in and do the rest. It's great fun, and they each get to take their pumpkins home. We take pictures and just have a lot of fun.

Here is a quick sneak peak of one of my newest projects. Can't give all the details away yet, but you should be able to see it all completed in a few days. Bring on the rain!

Check back in towards the end of the week and I will have some more pictures of my projects for you.
Happy Stitching! Carol


  1. I love the Autumn Greetings! We do the whole pumpkin carving tradition here also....but my role is to wash and roast the seeds.....and scrub the floor after they "clean up". :) I am anxious to see the rest of your little heart and flowers project.

  2. Looking forward to seeing the little heart project....I love this time of year too, especially all the warm autumn colours.

  3. Yes, Autumn is my favorite, even though it is when both my mother and father passed, I still fell nostalgic, and I also look forward to winter anticipating watching the snow fall whiole I stitch in front of the fireplace and watch the birds eat at our feeder. It doesn't get any better than that does it?

  4. Sounds like you have the dirty job for clean up. When I first organized it, I said it was going to be a father thing so they had to do the clean-up and they actually listened! It is still fun thought isn't it?
