Saying goodbye to Autumn

It is with a bit of sadness that I put away the Autumn decorations 
each year.  Why?  I can't say for certain.
Do you remember in the 80's when it was the height of
vogue to go to the Estee Lauder cosmetics counter and have your 
personal 'colors' done?
Well, it was determined that I am an Autumn.
Silly, you may say.  But I honestly think this may have something
to do with my fondness for the colors and themes of the Autumnal Season.
My soul feels calmed by the colors.  I truly love
walking through my home when the rich color splashes of nutmeg, olive, 
orange, chrysanthemum, sunflower, goldenrod, pumpkin, allspice, cumin,
cinnamon, squash and moss greet me at every turn.
You are all familiar with my needlepoint...
but may not know that I dabble in other crafts, as well.
Paper mache', wool felt-work and sewing to name a few.
Primitive Folk Artistry type of work.
As I carefully wrapped my Autumn treasures in tissue paper, and 
laid them to rest until next year, I snapped a few pics.

Here is my Farewell to Autumn...

Until the leaves drop again...
Happy stitching...


  1. Hi Kelly, I feel the same way about my Fall decorations. I hate to put them away because I love the warm colors and having them out is a comfort to me. I love your creations and your needlepoint. I needlepointed for a number of years and love it still. I enjoy seeing your designs come to life here.

  2. Loved seeing all your woolies ! Never would have known you were a "woolwoman" too . Melody

  3. Melody, I can walk through a shop or store and 'spot' a scrap of wool felt or roving from 3 aisles away...and it takes my breath away! Love the woolies!
