Autumn is upon us here in the Northwest.
The energy has been shifting, and our days have been cooling down.
I love the cool, crisp, sunny days of fall.
I have been doing a few autumn themed tasks around here.
Such as harvesting food from the garden.
Our pumpkin patch is looking quite handsome, and more of them are getting ripe each day.
Our oak trees have started dropping their acorns, and shedding a few brown leaves.
And thus I have started my annual task of collecting Acorn tops for my crafts.
These are a couple of the crafts I have been playing with lately.
I created the needle felted pumpkin one evening for fun.
Its about 3 inches wide, a simple little totem to the season.
The pumpkin lantern is a craft I found on Martha Stewart Here.
It took a little more work than I thought, as the paint didn’t want to stick to the glass all that well.
But I thought it turned out pretty cute.
I have also been making some more of my felted acorns.
They are cute as always.
I always like to have a few of them around.
What have the rest of you been up to this fall?
In what ways are you expressing yourselves?
