Autumn is the hush before winter....

I love to decorate for fall!  Probably more than Christmas....I have started to pull things out and hope to add some Halloween this weekend.



Wish I could take "magazine" photo shoots....oh well.  This is our dining room. 
Today, I am spending most of the day in the sewing room...machine quilting.  Trying to decide if I like using the nylon invisible thread...it hides a multitude of mistakes, but I am not sure I like the look.  I think I will do my next one with some other thread...any suggestions?   Hope to have a picture at the end of the weekend of the little quilt I made with the Broken Dishes blocks I made.  It turned out better than I had originally thought!
Hope everyone is having a fantastic fall day...there might be a light frost on the pumpkins tonight!

You must love fall with your walls painted that beautiful color. Soooo warm feeling!!

Your fall decorating is wonderful. I love the quilt hanging in your dinning room. Try the Bottom Line thread for an invisible look.

Love the decorations - Fall decorations get to stay up longer than other holidays so that could be the reason we like fall time.

Did you make the quilt that is hanging on the wall? It is a beauty.

Oh, your fall decorations are so pretty! Oooh - I say go for it! I'd use a contrasting thread - and just loved it! Doesn't hide mistakes very well - but, really shows off the pretty work you did (smile)!
