Scarecrows, Pumpkins Galore- My Autumn Tree

 Fall Y'all is complete!  

Welcome y'all and Happy Saturday. Can you believe this is the last day of the month?


September sprouted wings and just flew right on by . Didn't it?

Well  Fall Y'all  is fully finished into an ornament and is ready to hang on the tree.  The only thing is one sweet stitcher  noticed that I misspelled y'all . I have always spelled it ya'll, but she was right so I will have to go back and change that. Lol. 


I  was doing the "scarecrow happy dance" when I found this unfinished wood plaque ornament in my stash. I bought it last year at the Dollar Tree in the craft section. 
I simply gave the wood two coats of paint and then glued my stitched piece to  it. The little ruffle trim is from a shirt that I ripped and gathered and glued in place. 

My little raggedy tree is crammed full with fall goodness. Hmm! Can I find a spot to place Fall Y'all in the tree. Oh my!  Perhaps one of the ornies will inch so slightly over for it. 😁😃

Stitching, scarecrows, pumpkins galore! 

The bottom of my tree is surrounded by loads of handmade goodies. 
 I filled an apple crate with stacks of fall quilts and a plethora of pumpkins that my sis gifted me. The Pumpkin sign is one I created from an old scrap of wood. 


The mini ladder has mini quilts on it including Autumn Crow  and Autumn Shoo Fly Quilt  which I shared in previous years. 


Years ago , I bought the cedar doll high chair at a craft show. It holds another small quilt stack and a basket gifted to me by dear Shelly . In the basket is a pumpkin made from an old dress. 

This tree is fixing to see a makeover for witches, cats and goblins are making their way to the tree.  I will share the Halloween raggedy tree when all of spooks take their place among the branches. 👻🎃
Have a beautiful Saturday , Sweet friends and ....

As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, y'all
