Any stitcher worth her salt is knee deep in
seasonal projects by now, right?

  I'm just sharing this for illustrative purposes.
But I have big plans to actually start in September to make my home looking Fall-ish.  I can add and subtract elements as the season goes on to take us from late summer into early fall and then Halloween and finally into Thanksgiving.

Last year I had stitched one lone Prairie Schooler owl and now there's some friends to share the curly willow twigs with him.

  6. Oops sorry I forgot about your other blog and thought it was strange that you hadn't posted about this challenge!
    Anywhoo they are all lovely but I especially like the pumpkin man and his killer smile :-)
    P.S. 13 is a lucky number for me so that will counteract any reservations you have about 13 blog followers.
