A few finishes and Fall decorations!

Hope you had a wonderful, long weekend. We didn't do anything special...just the normal stuff. My dh had to work all weekend so that took care of doing anything amazing. I have not been doing much stitching..a little.. but I haven't taken any pictures so I thought I would show what my youngest has been stitching. She is like a power stitcher. When she is stitching the needle is just flying....here is what she has been doing.
 I did start to clean off the back porch and put out a few harvest decorations....
  Does she look familiar ....yep she made it home from Michigan and is now on my back porch. I think she is adorable! The pumpkins and candy corn we made by my mother and myself last week while we were enjoying a few days crafting together. I tea stained the white pumpkin and I love the way they turned out.
 The candy corn was pretty simple too. We just sewed stripes of fabric together and then cut out the shape...simple...and  it turned out great. I stained mine but Mom said she has had old stuff her whole life and she wanted hers to look new!!! LOL And so it was...
  I have more pictures for you tomorrow!  Be Blessed.

WOW! Your daughter is going to follow in your footsteps. Her stitchings are amazing.
My husband is always asking why I have to make things look old or dirty. I explain every time that I like it that way. *sigh* MEN! Yet, when we go thrifting, he can find some of the greatest stuff. I think he is just teasing me-constantly. None of the grandkids take him seriously.
Love your pumpkins!

I can only imagine how quickly your daughter's fingers must move as she stitches away. I love you new fall decorations. Since the weather has been a little cooler, it seems like the perfect time.
