Fall gatherings

 Where does time go, its been a month since I have posted anything, I have had a couple of emails making sure I am ok.  Yes I have had so many things going on since Oliver came home, lots of keeping him and sewing fall handmades, and of course working.  Seems like time just gets away from you.  I have not been able to keep up with everyone's blogs, hoping things will settle down again soon. I thought I would share some items I have made for fall, most of these have already been sold.  Love the pears, this year I decided to paint them instead of using fabric, these are great sellers.
 The pumpkin tucks are great bowl fillers, never can have enough pumpkins for fall, I love all sizes.
 I think this was one of my favorite things I have done this fall, this is a Kentucky Primitives pattern, great for a cabinet display.  Thinking of making another set of these for my fall display.
I love this pattern, these are church dolls, a drakestone pattern, very easy to make, I dressed them in fall colors and they are rag stuffed.
 I have ordered several items for my house, fall is my biggest time of the year I decorate.  This one brought a smile to my face, just love looking at him.  I ordered him from Marie, Prims by old lady morgan.
I fell in love with pumpkin people last year, this one I ordered from Kimberly, The red cupboard, she makes really outstanding dolls. Can't wait to find the perfect spot for her when I start fall decorating.
 This is the doll I won from Kimberly when she had a drawing, love how she looks in the cupboard.
 A couple of items I have made, Miss Deerfield, a Netty Lacroix pattern, she will be holding a pumpkin.  And a sweet pumpkin folk, sweetpea pattern, love making her.
 If you want some great pumpkin folk, bittersweet folkart has some great patterns, this one is hallow jack, still need to do some tweaking on these.
Some items for my fall decorating, lots of great berries and leaves, picked them up at hobby lobby, I have more in the closet, ok I go a little wild when it comes to fall decorating. Of course some pumpkins, I found these last year, always looking for more pumpkins.  I kepted seeing the corn pumpkin guy, a too far gone design, can't wait to put him out, love the shelf, or can lay it flat on a table for a display.  More pumpkin heads in need of being put on their bodies. 
 I ordered this from Mandy, bittersweet folkart, he will look great sitting among all the fall decore, I love collecting from other designers.  I have the pattern, he is one of the ones whose head is on the table. 
 A new shelf, love this one, I can either hang it, sit it on another cabinet and leave it on the floor.  And of course more pumpkins, I have this thing for pumpkins, love the bittersweet sign, one of my favorite berries.
And here is me holding Oliver last saturday, his parents decided they wanted some together time, so off to the movies they went.  Oliver is now 8 lbs. and is a very good baby.  Brandis sister Katie had her baby August 2nd, Jonah weighed 9 lbs 4 ozs., it will be nice for Oliver and Jonah to grow up together, they are exactly 3 months a part.  Oliver will be 4 months old on friday, where does time go.  He was actually awake here, he still sleeps a lot.  Well just wanted to say I am still here, trying to finish up lots of fall handmades, Nanbrook Farm and Country Heart will be having their open houses on September 10th, and the Rusty Relic will have theirs on September 17th, if you are in the area, drop by.  I will try to take pictures and post them.  Everyone have a safe labor day holiday.  Now back to my sewing, their are some heads that need their bodies.  Hugs.  Vicky
