I love Fall. In fact, I love everything about it. I love the colors, the cooler weather, apple cider, pumpkin spice latte's at Starbucks, pumpkin scones at Great Harvest Bread Company, my pumpkin gobs, ...oops! I knew that coffee and food would somehow make the list of my favorite fall things.
You want to know something odd? For some reason I don't have a lot of Fall themed quilts. Of course I have Halloween, but I don't have many Fall wallhangings or quilts. That doesn't mean that I haven't started any. I have good intentions. I start something and then the season is over and I think to myself, "Oh well. I'll get it done for next year". Or I have bought fabric to make a quilt and haven't started it yet. What's with that anyway?
The other day I was putting away my Halloween decorations, and I decided it was time to make something with a Fall theme. I was piddling around in the sewing room, and I came across this cute little wallhanging I started 4 years ago; four freakin' years ago! Instead of starting something new I decided to take Mary Ann's challenge again, and Finish Something.
Isn't he adorable? I didn't buy anything new, however it was tempting to start over with Sandy Gervais' Fall Back in Time fabric line. I was so proud of me...I used what I had started the project with.
I even tried some thread painting, which I had never done before. I used verigated thread, attached my darning foot, dropped the feed dogs, and away I went. I was so proud of me. Now that was something I probably wouldn't have tried 4 years ago when I started the project. I think it looks pretty good!
That was so much fun I think I'll piddle around in my sewing room again and see if I can find anything else!
