Fall Trimmings

I meant to take (and post) pictures of the shop windows last week…but never managed to get outside with my camera.  I wish I had done it last week instead of today — brrr!  It has sure turned cold here in Central Iowa!

The picture isn’t that great, I think I need to try it when the light is different, to see if I can get one without all of the reflections in the window.  The wallhanging at the top of the window is something my Mom made several years ago — a row of really cute pumpkins!

The local Boy Scouts have been selling pumpkins for the past several weekends, and 2 weeks ago I wandered over and bought the big ones you see in the picture — I thought they’d be just perfect to display our growing collection of hat samples.  Mom’s been making hats like crazy, and we’re all going to need those hats here pretty soon.  If you’d like to make your own knitted hat, I hope you’ll check out our yarn selection!  Many of the patterns she has been using are free, and we can direct you to them!

Here’s the other window — again, sorry for the reflections in the glass!

The quilt is Granny’s Jam from the book Laps From Fats.

The bags are Laurel Burch bags — those will be on the shop site here shortly (and I’ll come back and add a link when they are available).  I know a lot of people think of her cat bags, but there some really cute DOGS, too.

And I can see from looking at the picture that I need to repair the fabric wrapped pole again!  Sheesh, I thought I had that all cleaned up!
