Happy Halloween

My flower pot with its autumn look.

I'm working on 3 different wool quilts, this is one of them. I've been embroidering with wool yarn different herbs, dye plants and special plants to me on wool fabric. These are a few of the finished ones (I'll make around 12 blocks). When I'm finished with the blocks I'm going to piece wool blocks for in between the black squares. The finished quilt will be lap quilt size. The wool their laying on will be used in the pieced blocks.

I went to the Master Gardener's fall meeting the other night and this was the center pieces on the tables. Instead of using the candle holders for candles they put in sweet potatoes and carrots.

The orange "pods" are Chinese Lanterns. They dry beautifully.

The carrot & sweet potatoe in the candle holders are funny!

I love your wool embroideries.

I've got my pumpkin on my kitchen table. If I put it outside it would be a frozen pumpkin! It been in the single digits this week! I'm freezing!
