Autumn Inspiration

Remember me? I have been away too long with no good excuse other than I have been in the craft room and back and forth (and back and forth) from the lake. This is such a beautiful time of the year in SE MN and NW WI. The leaves are changing and the “tourists” have gone home. The drive to the lake is a blessing and I do not mind traveling the 140 or so miles there and back as often as my life allows.
On my way down Salem Road.

Giant pumpkins in Wabasha, MN.

Beautiful sumac along Highway 53 in WI near New Auburn.

No, I do not have enough pictures of the moon rising over the point at the lake!

Bountiful fields of corn near Plainview, MN.

These road trips have inspired me to create a new beaded pillow: Pumpkin pillows! Some are already available in my Etsy shop and others have been created for a local boutique (look below). These pumpkin/gourd pillows are another excellent way for me to upcycle my fabric scraps.

Unique, beautiful and creative Karen! I can see why you don't mind your drive's gorgeous there.

I think those are some of the most amazing reds I have ever seen in fall leaves!

The pumpkin pillows are FAB!

Glad to see you back! You have been missed my beady friend.
