Just Fall Stuff

Good Sunday morning to all 

I'm a few days late...
So getting back to the Count Me Inspired retreat in Shipshewana

Each night we found a treat on our space 
We have a beautiful wooden chart holder, with a magnet for your needle
A colorful bag with finishing a FOB for it, with matching thread, awesome!!
And a Just Another Button Company kit to make a spoolkeep 

I bought stash 

And started Penny Harvest of course 

Jan had some models set up in the store 
The new Penny Harvest I started is on the right side 
Jan finished a model and bought that fabulous cutting board at the antique store to mount it on, in the middle of the photo, love the cut out heart.
Here are just a few other snaps of the store set up 

I also started and finished a Lizzie Kate on the Flapper linen I bought just for it 
The linen is really deep purple, I couldn't capture the real color. I'm pretty sure the right color is in my stash photo, I'll give you a minute to scroll back up, lol 

I also started Moonlit Garden at the retreat

I stitched mostly on The Heartland Sampler while I was there 

Oh... And I bought this dough bowl at the antique store that is right by the Farmstead Hotel 

I love love the red, see the finger imprint on the left. 

I finished Penny Pumpkin before I left for the retreat and forgot to post it 
By the Scarlett House 

Maybe, just maybe I will get time later or tomorrow to finish up my finishes 
I need to get back to stitching Harvest Keeper by Plum Streeet

Here's two my my grandkids playing in our leaves. Anyone need any leaves?  They are free
They are the big ugly brown oak leaves, nothing pretty about them. But they are fun to jump in
We have eight huge trees in our front yard. Our next home will be tree-free, haha 

Make it a great day :)
