Back to fall

It's such a relief to have my Winter ad done for Country Sampler so I can get back to designing for fall! I've been making pumpkins for Country Spirit, in Tomah WI where I consign, and I've designed a wonderful PUMPKIN LAMP PATTERN that's available as either a mailed pattern or an epattern. There are little mice attached to the pumpkin. Included in the pattern is a plain ribbed pumpkin, I think they look well together.

I've added several new patterns to my website this week and have more started. The nice cool nights and mornings, even though it's only August, make it so much easier to look ahead to fall and winter.

Tomorrow I'll try to post some photos of my flowers. I've turned wash tubs, pails, tool boxes, wheelbarrows and old chairs into containers for them. I even have an old bicycle in the front yard with flowers in the basket and on the book carrier on the back fender.
