Fall and Halloween Primitives

I's been raining buckets here today!  And they say the worst is yet to come!  But I love it, as long as I know all my brood is home and safe.  Rain gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.  It also gets me in the mood to sew and craft.  And that's what I've been doing most of the day.

I finished up three fall gatherings today.  I love making these mini pumpkins.  I've always loved making my three-tiered pinkeeps, so I figured I'd do the same with muslin and paint them up in all different colors.  The gathering above is definitely a OOAK piece, made using an old enamel pot I found while out doing a little shopping at one of my favorite antique shops.  It can be found in my Etsy shop.

I posted these pieces a while back, showing some of my shabby work.  I finally used a couple of them and hope to get the other two done later this week.

 Sweet little pail with a couple of the mini pumpkins.

And this nice fall piece using the pale pink pitcher.

This is Spook.  He is up for adoption and hopes to find a good home.  He has been spade and has had all his shots.  You can find him here.

I finally finished up another Witch's Brew Gathering.  I also finished up the pattern for this.  This is in my Etsy shop.

Also, I'm listing my fall and Halloween tucks on eBay.  This allows me to get the sets made up during the week.  It's working out well and keeping me from getting too overwhelmed.  So, if you're interested in any of my seasonal tucks/ornies, check out my eBay listings here.

Hubby fixed a big pot of chili tonight and it was SO good!  PERFECT for this weather!  Well, it's still pouring out there, so guess I'll get back to my sewing.  Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!  ~~Annie
