Pumpkin Penny Rug

I spent Friday night at my parents’ house and at the breakfast table in the morning I noticed my mom had out the penny rug I made her a few years ago. I love the simple look of the black felt and blanket stitch! I may just have to make these again someday…

All the handwork makes it the perfect project to take with you or work on while watching a movie with the fam!

Now I wish I had made myself one, too… ;o)

Thanksgiving Living

I love fall! I know I’ve mentioned it before but I love decorating for the fall, too! November is my favorite fall month because it is Thanksgiving!!!

We should be thankful year round but we put a special emphasis on it in November! Even some of my decorations get in on it…

Found this handsome bird a few years ago at the Goodwill for $8 and I am still thankful for it! : o)

This tablecloth I made last year incorporates all kinds of my favorite things: brown, fall, pumpkins and farms!

But my Thanksgiving tree is my favorite!

I decorate my tiny tree with leaves and Bible verses on being thankful!

Psalm 100:4 “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.”
