my little pumpkins

pumpkins and felted acorns made by the girls, instructions found in an old issue of Living Crafts

It's my favourite time of the year. The colours, the crisp air, the woollens, apples and pumpkin everything and lots of crafting with treasures found in nature. The kiddos (including Sacha) have been making some lovely transparency collages using leaves as well as fall lanterns (leaves glued with mod podge on glass). The girls have been creating wool gnomes, strange mushrooms and trolls and collecting unusual pumpkins and squash to decorate the house for Halloween. I started canning applesauce and most of our baking involves apples or pumpkins these days (yum!).

Happy fall friends!
