Summer visited with some great sunshine, lazy days, sweet corn, tomatoes, morning coffee on the deck, evening wine on the deck. I blinked my eyes and summer is gone like a melted Frosty Snowman. Reading posts on Facebook this morning I found multiple pictures of youngsters heading of to the first year of school and the last year of middle school. Exciting times for both children and parents.
Preparation here continues for the Spring Run Harvest Fest on Sept 16. Spring Run Farms is in Lowell, Indiana. I’m looking forward to doing the show with my sister, Carole who will have a booth also. Visit Carole’s Picture Trail by clicking here to see her beautiful cross stitch and quilts.
I have a few finishes to share with you. The first is Mr Turkey standing on a pumpkin. This is a Cathy Sowers design, that I hope I did justice to. I used crushed walnut shells to stuff this.
Halloween cat arrives on her little whisk broom, ready for the season. Not all that scary, but full of fun. I sewed on a brown plaid cotton backing. I was able to just tack in onto the broom with a few stitches on each side.
Now I put punch needle aside and prepare for a pre-anniversary get-away with my wonderful husband of 45 years.
Thank you for stopping by.

Lovely blog, enjoyed the pictures! Loved the punch needle, what did you mount your turkey on?
I used a wooden spool. I got a dowel that matched the opening of the spool and was able to insert it almost to the turkey head. Someone had mentioned that the crushed walnut shells might prove to be too heavy, but it worked perfectly. Thank you for your kind comments.
Marion, the turkey looks great! Love the colors
