ANOTHER LITTLE QUILT INSPIRATION

THIS SWEET LITTLE ANTIQUE DOLL QUILT INSPIRED ME
TO MAKE ONE AS CLOSELY AS I
COULD WITH REPRODUCTION FABRICS.
THIS IS MY INTERPRETATION OF THE ANTIQUE ONE.
I'VE MACHINE PIECED AND HAND QUILTED IT.
IT'S LONG AND NARROW.  A FUN SIZE.
I DECIDED TO DO ANOTHER USING ALL BROWNS AND BLUES
FOR IN THE BROWN BEDROOM. (THANKS FOR THE INPUT GWENDOLYN)
IT WILL GO OVER THE PEG RACK WITH THE LITTLE BLUE
DRESSES I HAVE ON THE ONE WALL. I HAVE YET TO
QUILT IT BUT WILL GET TO IT SOON I HOPE. I HAVE MORE
FALL GOODIES TO MAKE FIRST! PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE
ON MY BLOG AS I WILL HAVE A FUN FREE GIVEAWAY
VERY SOON. UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

MORE RUGS AND PROOF OF FALL...

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE RUGS. IT'S A LORI BRECHLIN
DESIGN ADAPTED FOR RUG HOOKING BY KRIS MILLER
OF SPRUCE RIDGE STUDIOS. I WAS INSPIRED BY
THE ONE PAT CROSS HOOKED AND LORI SHOWED
ON HER BLOG. THANK YOU FOR THE COLOR PALLET
INSPIRATION PAT! THIS RUG HANGS IN THE HALL.
ANOTHER OF LORI'S DESIGNS BY SPRUCE RIDGE STUDIOS.
HEX & FREX. NOT NECESSARILY A FALL RUG BUT
THAT'S WHEN I DISPLAY MINE. ANOTHER FUN RUG TO HOOK.
THIS IS AN EDYTH O'NEILL RUG PATTERN CALLED
OHIO COVERLET. YOU CAN PURCHASE EDYTH'S PATTERNS FROM
WOOLLEY FOX. I DID IT IN SHADES OF BLUES AND
PUMPKINS SO I PUT THIS ONE OUT FOR FALL TOO.
A BLACK PUMPKIN PILLOW I MADE FOR MYSELF LAST YEAR.
THIS FUN LITTLE RUG IS FROM A QUILT PATTERN BY
CHERI PAYNE THAT I ADAPTED TO A RUG. I SOLD
THIS ONE LAST YEAR. I LOVE THAT CAT AND PUMPKIN.
MAY HAVE TO THINK ABOUT HOOKING IT AGAIN!
OK, HERE IS THE PROOF I WAS TALKING ABOUT. THIS TREE
HAS BEEN TURNING SINCE AUGUST AND IS AT A
SCHOOL UP THE STREET WHERE ZOE AND I WALK EVERY
DAY.  JUST HAD TO SHOW THAT FALL REALLY IS
HERE IN OUR NECK OF THE WOODS. AND, OK, I
ADMIT IT.....I'VE STARTED TO GET MY FALL DECORATING
STUFF OUT AND PLAN TO DO MORE!

HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYED YOUR HOLIDAY WEEKEND.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK.  LORI

SMALL FALL HOOKED PIECES

THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE SOME OF MY SMALL HOOKED
PIECES I PUT OUT FOR FALL. WE DON'T HAVE A LAND
LINE PHONE ANYMORE SO I COVER THE PHONE JACK ON
THE WALL WITH THIS SMALL PUMPKIN RUG IN THE ABOVE PIC.
THIS LITTLE BEAUTY IS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE
FALL RUGS. HOOKED MY MY DEAR FRIEND
SHERRY KRISTOFF (AKA THE QUEEN). I PURCHASED
IT FROM SHERRY ON EBAY LAST FALL AND I HAPPEN
TO KNOW SHE IS HOOKING ANOTHER RIGHT THIS MINUTE!
SO CHECK OUT HER OFFERINGS ON EBAY. HER USER
NAME IS FROMSHERRYSHEART847.
THIS SWEET LITTLE PUMPKIN MAT WAS GIFTED TO ME
BY ONE OF MY GOOD FRIENDS HERE.
JAN DOESN'T HAVE A BLOG OR WEBSITE BUT HER
HOOKED RUGS ARE AWESOME! SHE HAS A GREAT EYE
FOR MAKING THEM LOOK OLD. SHE IS
A SWEET PERSON AND WONDERFUL INSPIRATION TO ME.
THE TOP CROW RUG I HOOKED USING A BUTTERMILK BASIN
CROW DESIGN AND JUST WINGED IT ( PARDON THE PUN)
WITH WOOLIE WORMS LEFT OVER FROM OTHER HOOKED PROJECTS.


THE BOTTOM ROW OF PUMPKINS RUG WAS PURCHASED.
I DON'T KNOW THE MAKER BUT I LOVED THE SIMPLICITY OF IT 
AND SHAPE OF THE PUMPKINS ON THIS LITTLE MAT.
THESE ARE SO COOL! MY DEAR FRIEND KELLEY BELFAST
GIFTED ME THESE FOUR HOOKED PUMPKINS. THEY ARE
BACKED WITH WOOL AND LIGHTLY STUFFED WITH
STICKS FOR STEMS. SHE USED FABULOUS SHADES
OF HER YUMMY OVER DYED WOOLS.
THESE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE FALL THINGS ALSO.
 BUT THESE ARE MY VERY FAVORITE TWO PUMPKINS!
FROM THE TIME ZOE WAS A TINY PUP
SHE LOVED TO LAY BEHIND US WHEN SITTING ON
THE COUCH.  USUALLY SHE IS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW
BUT SHE IS SNUGGLING SO CUTE ON BRIAN'S
SHOULDER I HAD TO SNAP A PICTURE.

HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A GREAT WEEK. IT'S COOLED OFF
HERE AND I HAVE SO MUCH MORE ENERGY FOR CREATING!
UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI
