~ Autumn's in the Air ~

Happy Labor Day dear friends and stitchers.

Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful holiday doing 
something special, and taking time to just

With having a farmhouse FULL of family and pets, 
I did not have much quality time to work on
my model stitching ~ I'm having to make a lot of
color changes on this sampler....hope to give 
a better update on Friday's posting :)


I'm excited to start decorating for Autumn next week after our 
house guests are gone.  I need to pack away spring and
summer, and pull out autumn gatherings.

After taking this picture last week, it made me realize just how
busy I've been....I still have a few Easter gatherings 
on display!

I'm really looking forward to pulling out my 
Squirrels and Owls!


On Sunday, I had a list of errands to do in La Crosse and it really
made me smile when I saw this display.....

I love decorating with pumpkins....even the big box was

This year I don't have any pumpkins growing on the I'll
have to buy them.

Even some Mums were for sale, but I'm going to wait for 
a better selection.


Look at what was parked in our Mall's parking lot....

It's hard to believe today is September 1st, and next month 
will be HALLOWEEN!

For several years now this 'Halloween Express' comes to our 
town and sets up shop.

Even the squirrels are busy gathering nuts and stopping 
along the way to EAT a few......

This is a Black Squirrel busy eating a Black Walnut!

....and this is an exhausted Grey Squirrel taking a break!


My little Granddaughter 'Rachel' is very intrigued and fascinated
with the surroundings in my Studio....

~ She is such a 'Little Lady' ~

Here she is showing me her colorful shoes!

She loves asking me what everything is.....

.......and after I told her
this is an old prayer bench she decided to try
it out.

 ......she immediately started thanking God for all the animals
and the Angels playing up in the sky!



And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good, 
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.

~ Romans 12:2....KJV ~


Enjoy this Labor Day and please 
visit again Friday.

  1. Those are some pretty Pumpkins. :)
    Yes, we have had Halloween Express here since early August!
    Rachael is too cute.
    That's quite a nice collection of PN's you have for sale.
    I love Lisa's designs.

  2. Your precious granddaughter praying on the prayer bench is priceless!

  3. Your granddaughter is adorable! I always enjoy seeing your pictures, Tammy! I am looking forward to the coming autumn season. Enjoy your week!

  4. Yes, your picture of your granddaughter on the prayer bench is my favorite also. Love, love, love your photos...

  5. Hello, do you still have any of the Witches Hollow patterns left? Thank you, Janet

  6. Hello, do you still have any of the Witches Hollow patterns left? Thank you, Janet

  7. Any witches hollow patterns left

  8. It's kind of sad that the witches hollow pattern is no longer available, it's almost a wasted talent. I think the high market prices are also sad, especially for people that didn't even know her. What better way to honor her than to spread her talent!
