A Favorite Corner

Here is one of my favorite corners in the house. I love to sit here and read. The window shows our garden in the front with corn and pumpkins coming up. It is wonderful.

This is a little cross stitch I did for fall. It only took a few days to finish. I love to cross stitch and usually take a small project with me to soccer practices, or places where I have to sit and wait for awhile. Which with kids that is often!
The next couple of fall stitchery's I matted with scrapbook paper.

So. Calif. is either green or brown, we don't get too many colors of the season like the midwestern states, so I have to bring fall 'inside'.
Blessings, Debbie

HI Debbie - love your stitcheries.

I have not been in a magazine yet -not sure how long you have been following me but I will be in Country Sampler in the spring! They were here in July to take pictures.

Your corner is decorated so pretty. I love your cross stitched picture. I used to do a lot of cross stitching but haven't done any in quite some time...makes me want to get it back out.

Love your cross stitched pics. They are just to cute! I have done a few and never thought to do them for the seasons and frame. Thanks for the idea. Love your little corner also. Living in the deep south we get fall real late and the colors don't last long at all. I love always going up to more of the north and see the wonderful colors of fall.

Thanks for sharing!

I so wish I could do something productive like that. Your work is so lovely. I really like your reading corner. If I had one that cozy I would spend all my time reading and nothing else.

Blessings to you this week,

Fall decorations, pumpkins, bittersweet, gourds, and such are things that I love. To me they are warm and country. Fall has always been my favorite season and I am looking forward to the cooler temps and the leaves changing colors.
