I'm in the mood for fall holidays ...

As you know, I love Halloween and Christmas, so I have decided to start making more of the fall and winter items (even though we are having almost record heat, up to 98 a couple of days ago)  I've been wanting do another pennyrug and found this pattern by Prindle Mountain Primitives.  I have another from Brenda Gervais, with a black cat that I want to again, since I have the woolfelt again.

 I also made some more of the little Raggedy Angels, from I'MSEEING RAGGEDIES, and made them more Americana, this time.
 And another Halloween bagholder, a pattern by Sweet Meadows Farm. I am anxious for the holiday fabric to come out, It is sooooo expensive to buy online.  I noticed that Joanns is slowly adding more holiday fabric.
 I received a surprise in the mail from Lil Raggedy Angie, we recently did a swap and I mentioned that I wanted to learn how to make bears, so she sent me this book to get me started.  It has the cutest bears in it.  Thank you, Angie!
 And another holiday Annie, I had these candy canes and I found this material at Joanns on a bottom shelf, and thought perfect.  I used an Oh Sew Dollin Pattern.
I hope everyone has enjoyed there holiday weekend so far, my hubby was away, so it was just me and my son, I bought some of the Tony Roma Ribs that are already cooked,  and some corn on the cob and a salad for dinner.  My son is so easy to cook for, as long as he has meat and a side, he is satisfied.  Hubby gets back tomorrow, so I imagine we'll be grilling out.  Enjoy tomorrow!  Cyndy

    I see we both have thought of Fall-me-with my jewels-You with the Halloween pattern,which I like very much.The 'Raggedy Angels' are so cute,that only to take and to hold:-),but the most beautiful is a Halloween bagholder:Your Bagholders are really incredible.
    When I look at Your dolls-I miss sewing a little,but maybe someday I will come back to my dolls making.
    The weather is very beautiful here.Me and my husband often cook outdoors.It's always a pleasure and tastes really better:-)
