Fall Finishes

Good morning dear friends,hope that this day finds you smiling and in good cheer. Are you getting ready for turkey day? I shall head out to do my grocery shopping later on today , my list is  almost ready to go. I want to thank each of you that has left a comment on my last post,it means a lot that you take the time to read and leave me your thoughts. I so appreciate them,however due to some computer issues I have not been able to respond but will once the problem is lined out.

Since Thanksgiving is almost at hand I wanted to share a few new Fall pieces that I finished amongst the chaos of my life.It is always fun to create something new to display  for the seasons.I had a few more ideas but really didn't have the time to see them through. Maybe next year.LOL! 

The first piece is a large punch needle design that I call "Pumpkin Hill" .It is my design and punched using a variety of floss and perle cotton .

I also punched this little acorn ,again my design and punched with a variety of floss and perle cotton.

Thought it was cute tucked in my old nail keg.

I have had this candle forever.I liked the shape of the glass container but not the color of the candle(it was a gift)so I decided to make a candle wrap for it .I used wool and thought it turned out okay.

 Don't you just love Carol's mice? I am so blessed to own one,hope to add to my collection a little later on.LOL!

The last one is a cross stitch piece and for the life of me I can't remember the designer.I am so sorry but if I can find it I will give credit where it is due.
I displayed it on this little shelf thingy( I am so proper, heehee) next to a wonderful candle holder that was a birthday gift from a dear friend.
Well that is all the show and tell for today.Not a lot of projects completed but it was my get away when I could squeeze in a moment or two.May each of you have a happy weekend.Blessings,Jen

Hi, Jen,
All of your new creations are just wonderful, especially the punched mat! I am very impressed that you designed all this yourself, you are so talented. I see you live on a farm, so do I, I'm in sw Ohio and I have to say that occasionally my kitties catch a real live mouse in here!
