Well the days are drawing in (or they would be if I was living in a colder climate) but never the less... It is fall or rather, autumn. Unfortunately I live in south Florida and the temperatures are in the 90s so it doesn't feel much like fall or autumn here. But it is in my house! I have wreaths in rich golds, oranges and deep reds. Pumpkins adorn every surface, many of them made by my own hand.
I love buying fall patterns... I love making them and for the last few years I have developed a love of certain prim designers. Cindy Markovcy of 'Homespun from the Heart' has some really lovely... bring-a-smile-to-your-face designs! I've made two of them this season. The first, "Black Hat Society Reject" that I finished crafting this past weekend and a cute mummy nodder (who has been gracing the shelf behind my sofa for the past month! At present there is a pile of muslin apples waiting to be made into 'candy apples'. I've already tried 3 coated in wax but I'm not very experienced working in that medium. Trying to work out different coating... oh well, something to think about!
