I'm Falling For You Blog Hop, My Day

The I'm Falling For You Blog Hop started Monday,  Many thanks to the hostess with the mostest Joan @ Moosestash Quilting.   This has been a great hop!  There have been some great projects  so far.  The entire schedule is below.  

I was excited when I heard about this the I'm Falling For You Blog Hop.  Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the colors, I love getting my Autumn decorations out.  I don't know if it is because I am an October baby or what, but I love the colors and love making fall projects.  

I have a little folder named "Fall" and I apparently had several projects I didn't finish last year, so I planned to finish those up, but then several squirrels lead me astray.  

One the items in my Fall folder was some cloth pumpkins I had cut out last year, so I sewed these together and finished them up.  The pattern for the three sizes I found here @Birch Cottage.  



Last year, Buttermilk Basin had a fall quilt along.  I got to steps 1 and 2 and then quit for some reason.  I finished up the top too.  I had hoped to have it quilted before this hop stop, but I have one machine in the shop, and another one needs to go in as it has a piece of a needle stuck in a gear.  It should be pretty easy to quilt once I get a machine back!  



One of my squirrels was when I decided last Thursday night I wanted to do a fall pillow for the loan agent I have been working with for a reverse mortgage.  I found I was supposed to sign papers last Friday.  So I got up Friday morning and made this before she came over in the afternoon.  She loved it, and sent me a picture of the chair she has it in.  I cut out the letters on my Cricut.  



My mind has been whirling around with Fall ideas these past couple of weeks.  Then Carla @ Creatin in the Sticks made this little gnome mini quilt that can be found here.  The squirrel carried me away again and I made this as a pillow cover for my step-daughter's BD that is coming up the first part of October.  I changed the sign a bit.  


I have been on a bit of a gnome kick recently.  I just can't get enough of them.  I made this little guy .  There is a video and tutorial @Ruffles and Rain Boots .  Another squirrel led me off this direction until I finished him.  




I also knit a pumpkin.  The pattern can be found here.  



Be sure and check out the other bloggers below, and thanks again Joan!

I love gnomes and fall too. You have a lot of great projects.

Carla said...

I'm cruising along on all these wonderful projects and then, boom, you made my day! It's always so fun to see someone create one of my patterns. Thank you for the cute little gnome! All of these fall projects are adorable!

Carol S. said...

Oh my goodness, I am in love with everything you made! Gnomes have been fun for me the past couple of years so you had me "falling" for each of them. Thank you for sharing!

Susan said...

Wow, Karrin! You really went to town adding to your fall decorations! I can't even decide which is my favorite, but I bet Edi would pick that second gnome!

Calicojoan said...

Wow, you have sure put us into the mood for fall. Love all your projects and I'm really intrigued with your lettering you cut our with your Cricut. I have yet to master that on my Cameo machine. Looks like I need to get down to work and learn how to use it! Thanks for the inspiration!

You've been making all kinds of fun things, Karrin! Your loan agent has the perfect chair for the pillow you made her. Those gnomes are cute, too - a friend of mine is making a gnome quilt and using Halloween fabrics for the gnomes' hats! Happy Fall to you!

LJ said...

You've been so busy with fall projects - excellent. Loved the fabric and the knitted pumpkins but the best was that lovely pillow you made.
