Now it's Fall...

The air is crisp, the leaves are turning and just about everyone seems to be happier. How is it the changing of season can do that to a person? Fall festivals abound in this part of the country, one of which we attended this past weekend. The annual Antiques and Apple Fest in Lexington, MO is one of our favorites. Actually, we look for pumpkins and gourds over apples. Unfortunately, pumpkins were scarce. Too many rainy days perhaps? Although there was no pumpkin and only a few gourds, there was no difficulty finding a few treasured books in our favorite shop, Blackthorn Trading Company...more on that another day.

A little Fall stitching...two from older Homespun Elegance.

"Grim Gourds" by Plum Street Samplers. Be forewarned, should you search for this pattern...wanting to leave this out longer than just Halloween (and having a thrift store frame), changes were made.
Fall, Autumn, Harvest...however you say it...enjoy!
