It looks like fall is finally upon us!  I love having the opportunity to curl up under a blanket at night and wearing a sweater.  This rainy weather also makes me a bit sleepy, and the kiddos have still not really adjusted to the time change. This leaves me with little desire to sew in the evenings.  So I have been doing a lot more embroidery and crocheting of late.  That way I can watch TV!  Sewing is a lot more active than one might think.  I am always on the floor cutting or hopping up and down between the sewing machine and the ironing board.  I would definitely call it an "active" craft...right, right?

The above girl is from the newest issue of Fat Quarterly by Cathy Gaubert.  She also designed this girl I embroidered a couple of weeks ago.  Isn't she sweet?

I also finished up this swinging girl that I have had mostly done since March!  She is from an embroidery pattern by Aneela Hoey, who has a fabulous new fabric line coming out in the spring for Moda!  I originally thought I would use these two for pillows for the girls, but since one is fall-ish and this one is summer-ish, I am thinking of making a spring one and winter one for a little series.  I am thinking of this girl for spring.  Anyone have an idea for a winter girl?

I also received my hoop from the Scrappy Hoops Swap!  Isn't it so darling?  I received this from Darci of Stitches and Scissors.  She was *my* partner for The Savvy Seasons Swap (the one I made this pillow for). Funny how things like that work out sometimes.  I do love the things she makes!
