Propped on the hallway bench is a large pillow - this came out of a long ago workshop I took with Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. It was my introduction to working with wool applique and a lot of fun...
But the real conversation starter is the rather large embroidered pumpkin - which some of you may have been introduced to before...
Thinking this was going to be something smaller, I started cutting out the pieces and quickly realized that it was not going to fit on the coffee table very well. So every Autumn, it holds forth on the buffet, making its own statement...and a reminder to me to check dimensions of patterns before purchase:o) To give you an idea of its scale, there are 8 yards of braided green cording surrounding it. I must admit though to having grown rather fond of it over the years and always chuckle when I walk by.
A few other minor accents, and that is the story of Autumn at Taylorsoutback...Miss Jenny has us on a Fall Break with Alphabe-Thursday - so be sure to visit all the other Autumnal postings.
"Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
Now for October eves!"
