last one for fall .....

This could be my last project for fall.  Whilst de-cluttering I was sorting through some craft magazines and came across an old issue of Create and Decorate with such an appealing cover I had to sit down and leaf through it ... and that's where I found this design.  I'd already labelled the magazine with 'save' and it's definitely a keeper.  Create and Decorate no longer publishes nor offers access to their archives - such a shame.






I used dropcloth for the pocket and lined it with a piece of flannel from an old shirt - the applique is felt.  I brushed on some cinnamon to antique it.



Look what we awoke to earlier this week -  it disappeared within 24 hours
but served as a warning from Mom Nature.

That is a wonderful piece and I loved their magazine. I started in 2005 and up to the last year, was sorry to see them go, always projects to make and designs you could use in different ways. I have kept mine too, still things i want to make.

This is definitely avery beautiful idea for fall decoration. I love how your made it.
But I had to look twice to believe my eyes - snow already? And so much? But then I remembered that we have also had years where the first snow falls were in October. But fortunatley this first snow melts away very soon.

Great work there Kate, shame the mag is no longer in production;(

What a cute fall piece, Kate--it looks so warm and cozy with the flannel lining. I often use my sons old flannel shirts for finishing, too :)

No snow here yet, but I'm sure we'll be seeing some before too long. Glad yours melted quickly.

Oh, my gosh, I can't believe you had snow already - even if it didn't last long! That's more snow than we had all winter last year, if I take out the one horrible storm that came with both days of snow and days of slush that froze into icy roads overnight - that was awful, but the rest of the winter was less snow than this all together!

But I love your crow. So, so cute! And fall, definitely. Do crows and pumpkins like the snow? LOL

Love!! I also love seeing your snow! My sister lives in the part of Arizona that gets snow and they just got a bit a couple days ago, so excited for them! Everybody I talk to can't believe I am excited for the winter/snow to get here (Ohio).

Thank you for your comment on my Christmas blog!
