Autumn?

Autumn is officially almost a month from now and by our 90 deg. weather lately you wouldn't think it was that close. I decided to make another fabric wreath like I made for Spring....Rachel did the tutorial here. This time in fall colors....I used Pumpkin and Spice by Deb Strain for Moda. I got everything prepped.



Then I assembled it. The tying took me about 3 hours total....spaced out.


I sent for this darling seam ripper that was featured on Lynette Anderson's blog. They had a bunch for sale and I picked one that appealed to me. It says on the wrapper that it was made in Hampton. I looked that up and I think it is in Queensland, Australia....am I right my Aussie friends??
I love it and it will make "unsewing" a little more fun!



On a side note, I finally finished the latest Elm Creek Quilt series book. This one came out in April and now I have officially read every single one of the books in the series. I love them!

Your wreath is gorgeous! I had printed out her tutorial last spring and actually bought the wire wreath frame. Somehow got sidetracked and didn't do it. This was a good reminder. I'll begin cutting fabric strips soon...think I want sort of a scrappy look which I could use often, not just in autumn, although I do love the fall colors so much. We'll see what I come up with when it happens.

I love your fall wreath too! I can't wait for fall and the cooler temps!!! I'm also a fellow Elm Creek lover! Aren't they the best?!

Yes, Hampton is in Queensland, there are Hamptons in Australia too. The name rings a bell, I think we may have been there some years ago - it was a quaint little place, if it's the one I am thinking of.
