Some fall stitchery

Today I am going to be sharing some of the fall stitchery I have been doing.  Some very recent, some a bit ago.  I have to do a lot of stitching quickly now because I will soon be having surgery on my RIGHT hand which means it will be in a cast for a full 6 weeks.... so probably no stitching by hand.  I do hope I can use my sewing machine after a few days.

Fall will always be my favorite season and that is probably why I enjoyed doing these projects.

Meanwhile here are some of my projects.................
This first picture is of some little cross stitched items I did awhile back..... I just got them framed   and so I put them up for the season.

And here are the current projects.  One is already in its frame, the others will be turned into pin keep pillows I think.

I have enjoyed working with wool quite a bit this summer and here is a little candle mat I made that is now part of my fall table centerpiece.

Not needlework but still fall decor.... this is what is by our back door, welcoming guests.
     I still have time to do a bit more stitching so I had better get back to it.................................

Be sure to check back a blog post to see my Tea Cup Tuesday entry about fall.  And come back again next week for another Tea Cup Tuesday entry.   Even though I  have a hand in a cast I have been working ahead so I have entries ready until the middle of Nov.   I hope to be able to edit them a bit as use of my hand allows before each is posted.  We shall see................

Fall has arrived in all its color

Fall will always be my favorite season.  I know winter is coming but fall is such a welcome relief after a hot summer.  In Maine I always loved the first smells of the season like smoke from wood burning stoves.   Here in Pennsylvania we don't have much of that nor quite the heavy dose of color but it is still a lovely season.   The colors come in subtly at this time of year.  A bit here and a bit there. 

My Black Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia)  are still blooming strong as fall nears.

This is the centerpiece on my fall table.

For my tea party today I wanted to choose a cup in saucer that said fall but the closest I would come was this one that was the second one I bought while in New Brunswick in August.  The colors are more muted and seems appropriate.   If you follow my blog you know I really love the Royal Albert Tea Cups and this is no exception. 

And the sugar and creamer have fall colored Chrysanthemums.
 They are from Paragon.

 And here is the mark.............

And how about a plate of Snickerdoodles.   I always think of my daughter when I make them.  She really likes them a lot!  I made these for my husband and I and honestly they didn't last a day.

I am joining Sandi's tea party today for this special Autumn Tea as well as the others in which I usual take part. 
Thanks for joining me  today and I hope you will visit the other Tea Time blogs as well.

I have joined with the following Tea Cup Tuesday Tea Parties.
