Lots of Fall Happenings Around Here.....and Fall Goodies Sale !!!

I did a little Fall decorating over the weekend, with hubby's help...( shhh...mostly hubby's work ).
Here is the entry way to my craft room...and here is one at night:
Here is a shot of the fence in front of our home...Rememeber , this house still needs alot of work , and outside painting or siding, etc. will need to wait till Spring next year...it does need a good power washing , though...so much work inside still, but maybe before snow flies, we'll manage to get that done....this fence was longer, but not in the best shape...we cut off a section from both ends and scraped and painted....looks much nicer...

Here is the very front door of the home, which noone uses...We are in need of a storm door there, and we are looking for a nice used one on Craigslist......

I thought I'd add a shot from the small hall leading into the garage...It is right past my studio...This is a "spare" room and is in the process of being re-finished.....I took the pic looking in from the hall through the French door to the room...i started painting the door, and I am not a tape- er off-er painter...I paint then use my widget to scrape my mess off the glass.....lol

Rhonda of Back Road Treasures took advantage of my buy 1 get 1 free pattern sale and one of the patterns she purchased was "Twas The Night Before Christmas" Wool Applique Pattern. Here is a pic of her awesome finish !!

Forgot to say...I have some really cute Halloween Honey and Me fabric I'll be posting on here so watch for that.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
I wanted to show you what else I've been doing...I was given some Black Walnuts from my hubby's boss...so I am going to use the peels to make Walnut Ink......

black Walnuts are really hard to harvest, hence the reason why they go for about $8.99 a lb. ...But here are the ones I have that I am going to be cracking open to try and extract some meat from. I will get more from hubby's boss , so if all goes well, I may be able to have walnuts for my Christmas baking...I know I'm going to be needing ALOT more than this, but remember this is just a trial run for me....lol

.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One Last Thing........
I REALLY did do a small bit of crafting !! I finally finished this punch needle I started months ago... It needs backing and staining yet though.....I have written all the steps and floss colors down, so I'm hoping. God willing, to get a pattern made up of it....
                                                              
Long post I know...but just had to play " catch up" with you all...lol
Hugs,
Robin
