So, some fall tatting...
The pumpkin (Lizbeth 20, Harvest Orange) is Mary Maynard's pattern, possibly the best tatted pumpkin pattern in Tatland. I love it. The two leaves on top of the pumpkin are Karey Solomon's from her book Tatting Turns Over A New Leaf. I used DMC Perle cotton and Sherry Pence's Granny Delicious' HDT, and the bottom leaf is a Ruth Perry Celtic style maple leaf tatted in, what else?, Marilee's 'Sugar Maple' HDT. I see she has a new batch in her Etsy shop, too.
My favorite holiday is Halloween, so I had to do another cross stitch project. 'Remember Me' from my previous post still isn't back from the framer yet. JoAnn's has a three week back up due to a 60% off framing special they have going on right now. I better get my butt up there quickly with this one or else Halloween will be over before I get it back. The text doesn't show up well in the picture because of the camera flash.

And lastly, a nice little dollar store find keeping with the autumn theme -- a cute pumpkin canister for only $2! It's made of nice thick glass and holds about two quarts. I don't know what I'll do with it yet, but I'm sure to think of something.
And with that, I'll wish you all a happy Sunday! For those of you who have tomorrow off (me!), enjoy your Labor Day festivities!
