Is it Fall yet?

I have not been blogging but I have been sewing. It's so hot down in sunny Florida and since I am ready for some fall weather, the only way I can get it is to make it "sew".

This is a pumpkin table runner that I had the top made but needed to sandwich and quilt it. These tablerunners are a maiden voyage in learning to do some machine quilting. Since I can't afford to send everything to a longarmer, I am just going to need to learn to do somethings myself. This one is probably going to Kentucky.

This table runner is the first of many. In other words, I have leftover fabric so I am going to do more of them to use it up. I have one pieced that is much larger than this one but should be a good size to go on top of a piano so I am going to start quilting that one soon. Hope everyone likes scarecrows!

Last but not least is a wallhanging that is done. This was mostly to use a cross-stitch piece that I have done with the cutest charms. The Halloween fabric is several years ago but has a real old-fashioned look. I am so pleased to have actually completed some projects. I will get back to blogging more regularly but now I have actually some things to show! So bring on the cooler weather (but no hurricanes)!!!!!!

These are all beautiful! I'm ready for fall also and these really make you feel the 'fall'. What a great way to use scraps from other projects. You have done a really nice job with these.
