Leafs Me Happy Hop October 8, 2012



Welcome Fall ........ and all the falling leaves
Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian bloggers and followers
It is my turn to share with you on the Leafs Me Happy blog hop .
I would like to thank Madame Samm and Cherry Blossoms for organizing and hosting this blog hop. I know it takes a fare bit of time to get it all done ..... thank you .. thank you.....  thank you. We all appreciate it a lot.
First I would like to share the list of links for the blogers today .....
Monday 8







                              in stitches & seams  ( hi! You are here )




be sure to stop by and see what makes them all smile with their leaves.

Scattered Leaves

Well I decided to play with the leaf templates I have from one of my patterns for a fall banner/garden flag, called  Changing Seasons. As I played with my 12 1/2" block I thought it would be nice to have a pillow for the season too.

And to dress it up some I added a ruffle to the border .Finished size is 16" square. My first pillow in a long time. I just might have to make a few more now as it went together fairly quick, and was fun to make.

Changing Seasons Banner

I have also made up the banner and will have a copy of the pattern as my give away for this hop, I'll include a fat quarter or two as well. Just leave a comment, and follow if you like. You can enter until midnight on the 10 of October for the give away.

I have a pile of leavs in my living room!
