Fall Mix and Sticky Canes

While the family was away this weekend attempting to land a nice salmon at the river, I spent the quiet time decorating for fall.  Thought I'd share a tiny section of my growing collection.  Of course, you've seen Harvest Annie (from a Homespun from the Heart pattern), as her cute face is sometimes my blog avatar.  She rests on a beautiful table mat I made from a Lakeview Primitives pattern.  Behind her is the chaise, adorned with my favorite rag pumpkin flannel quilt (from Love of Quilting magazine), and a little cross stitch pilgrim and turkey (from a Leisure Arts cross stitch book).  As you can see, I enjoy creating diverse stitched items to adorn my home, and I LOVE the fact that there are so many talented designers out there who have put together such awesome patterns!  Thank you!!!

I spent last night creating a large collection of primmed up candy canes all glistening with mica flakes and glass glitter, and they're just about dry.  Adorned with a cute vintage tag, these will be available in my shop today in sets of three.  I also plan to add a larger version this year.  Hope you'll take a peek!  Have a great day!


  1. Adorable Annie and love those prim candy canes! Thanks for sharing Ilene.


  2. This makes me want to get my Fall items out! I've been dragging my feet as I don't want to climb in the attic!
