It's one of my favorite times of year; early Autumn.  I've had the summery and patriotic quilts around the house for several months now, and it's time for a new palette.  So the "Pumpkin Hill" quilt found a spot behind my harp, and the "Falling Leaves" quilt (featured last year in Quiltmaker magazine!) waits on the couch for snuggling up.  Other Fall items are coming out to each room.

Once again I look in disbelief at the number of Halloween quilts I seem to have.  I'm not even that big a fan of Halloween!  I blame the fabric designers for making too many cute fabrics.  I'm going to hold off until at least the beginning of October for the Halloween stuff though.

In the meantime I found a pattern for a crochet acorn, so I made one yesterday.  I'll probably make a few.  I was going to sew a little face on it (don't we do that with all amigurumi stuff?) but then I realized that the lid comes off - so you would be looking inside its empty head.  A tetch morbid, I think.  So it's just a plain acorn.  Maybe for Halloween I'll sew a face on and insert some curly crochet brains inside in case anybody peeks.

Do you redecorate around your house for Fall?

Love the acorn brains idea. I used to decorate for fall when the kids were younger, but now it seems like the seasons pass so quickly I barely have time to get decorations up before it's gone. There are certain items that find their way back into the decor though. Usually our patriotic decorations during the summer. Love the quilts, as always.

I think the acorn is fun - put some candy in his head - that would make fun brains.
