goodnight sweet season

I didn't do a very good job with my first attempt at art every day month. I was able to get my mind around living in an artful way.  And though my health and my schedule conspired to hold me back, I was able to work in a purposeful way when I gave myself the chance to work at all. Guess that's positive.
On the eve of the Advent season and with the holidays fast approaching, I am about to pack my autumn things away. Just in time I finished two small projects.

This wool felt applique candle mat, approximately 8 inches wide, was a delight from start to finish.

And this "teeny tiny pumpkin" cross stitch which was back ordered for weeks arrived just in time for me to stitch it tonight. It's just an inch and a half wide.
Tomorrow I'll assemble the advent wreath but for tonight it won't be visions of sugar plums but orbs of tangerine and scarlet and ochre  that dance in my head.


  1. Those Pumpkins are really lovely

  2. Beautiful. I love working with felted edges to turn under! And the texture is so comforting somehow.

    I, too, am reluctant to put away the colors and mood of autumn gratitude. But the calendar page has turned to December and so must I.


  3. The candle mat is gorgeous! Will you be making a Christmas themed one?
