Sunday Stitching

It's been quite chilly
and very Fall like in Philadelphia 
these past few days.
Good stitching weather : )
Hubby and I watched the Eagles
game yesterday and I made sure
to have needle in hand for those
3 or so hours. 
I am, of course, still in 
Halloween/Fall mode, so 
I put together this wool pumpkin
pincushion and trimmed it in
with some yummy cinnamon chenille 
from
 I'm very much drawn to the 
chocolate browns,
rusts, and dark mustards at
this time of year.
* * * * *
I also began work on a new Fall inspired
alphabet sampler that I hope to 
attach to a wooden hornbook.
It will be full of all the things
that are reminiscent of Autumn.
Got to get ready for TDIPT.
It comes around so fast and
I want to have a few things to
offer this month.
* * * * * 
Hope you are enjoying some Fall
like weather where you are!
Happy Stitching.
