I Love Fall

The pumpkin pillow was my first attempt at rug hooking. It really is a fun craft. I made the quilt out of 10 flannel fat quarters. There are just too many fun crafts. It is hard to do them all when you enjoy doing them all. The little scarecrow came from a store. The nights are getting chillier here in Minnesota. I had to put another quilt on the bed last night.

"I love fall! Fall is exciting.
I'ts apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning.
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall." - Author Unknown

Shelley, This is so sweet. I love the poem and I love everything in your beautiful photograph. Your quilt just makes me want to put a movie on and curl up under one of mine. And your pumpkin pillow is precious! This is just such a wonderful time of the year.
Hugs and love, Cookie
