Welcome, welcome, welcome -- I'm so happy you're here today!
The moment I first saw the "Leafs Me Happy" button, I *knew* this was a hop for me! I'm not just a fall person (or a pumpkin person, for that matter), but I'm also very much a LEAF person!!
Leaves have been a part of my projects for ages. From blocks . . .
To table toppers . . .
To old Cherokee leaf pounding techniques . . .
Plain and simple?
Living out here at Camp MACOBA in the middle of 110 acres of woods means I sure do get my fill of the gorgeous fall foliage . . .
I mean c'mon ... this is the stuff poetry is written of -- and the more color, the better!
Inspired by the September doll quilt over at A Sentimental Quilter, I went into EQ and chose the closest thing I could find to Kathy's Doves in the Window. The block I found was called Premium Star and I enlarged it just a tad. The big empty space was screaming for something *leafy* so I found some fun leaf coloring pages and added some stitchery. What I ended up with were these pretty little blocks . . .
|Oh Canada! Leaf|
|Oak Leaf Forest|
|Leaf Me Some Maple Syrup and Plainly a Leaf|
Put 'em together with a darling fall print, some glittery quilting, a plaid binding and voila!
And do you know? It's not *just* the last day of the Leafs Me Happy hop . . . it's also my birthday. And not just *any* birthday. Today I turn . . .
Whoohooo!!! Light the fireworks! Strike up the band!! Where's my parade?!?! Bring in the cake and ice cream and PRESENTS!!
Or how about this? How about I do a little giving today ... a little Leafs Me--Happy--Birthday to Me love??
Some sweet little charm packs (both sporting leaves, I might add), my favorite magazine, Celebrate, all decked out for autumn, a sweet little jar of some pumpkin spice tea . . . and who knows what else will make it's way into the box before it's all said and done??!!
Wanna chance? Be a follower and leave a single comment telling my your favorite way to decorate for fall!! Make sure I have some way of getting in touch with you if you're the winner. That's it -- easy-peasy! Personally, I'll celebrate my birthday the whole month of October ... but I'll close the giveaway at midnight on Saturday the 20th and announce a winner on Monday the 22nd!!
In the meantime . . . be sure to visit the rest of the fabulous blogs lined up for this final day of the hop!
And a rousing cheer for Cherry and Madame Samm who've done a *marvelous* job with this happy hop! Thanks so much, y'all!!
