Since Autumn has officially arrived.....

…….I decided that it was time to bring the season into our home!
So, I spent Saturday doing just that!

The quilt is one I made many years ago, it is a Jan Patek pattern.  The pillow is a Needle Love design out of one of their Autumn books.  I love getting reacquainted with my treasures.

The quilt on the back of the chair is one of my designs called Crossings.  The pillow is a Timeless Traditions Quilts design from a couple of years ago.  It is the first year which it has been home for me to enjoy.

I adore this cat pillow, and the memories connected with it.  I purchased it at a Fall Boutique when I taught at Quilter's Station, 2 summers ago.

This quilt I made many moons ago...….it is even hand quilted.  The gourd basket and the yellow winged crow were purchased at a Country Living Fair which we attended a few years back.  If you've never attended one of these fairs, you must consider doing it.

This Ohio Star quilts also a Timeless traditions Quilts design, and lucky for me, it has arrived back home, and is available for naps!  The Thanksgiving pillow is one of my favorite and is from a Needle Love book.

The basket on the right is an antique sewing basket which is over a 100 years old.  I found it on this last trip to Missouri.

The maple Leave quilt is from 22 years ago.  I worked on the hand quilting while on a fishing trip with my family up in Canada.  

This khaki pumpkin head was also purchased at a Country Living Fair in Ohio...….And the cat in a fabulous shop in Wisconsin.  A trip down memory lane.

This basket was purchased for me and I just completed the wool design on the lid.  I'll now take my sewing around in style!

Last but not least these gourds were also purchased at The Country Living Fair in Ohio.

Need to hurry out the door, we are going to Chad and Abbie's for dinner.

  1. Thanks for the house tour, loved it all. How did you attach the appliqué to the basket? I have a basket and I want to hook something for the top.
