Friday Finish - About last October...

Ok so I know we're all dying for spring, and nobody really wants to read about Halloween, but I have a few little finishes I didn't want to forget about, so please bear with me!
Last October I was so into the fall atmosphere, I decided to whip up a little fall themed runner for my table.  What better represents fall than some modern maple leaves?  I went through my precious AMH scraps and made a little autumn flavoured gradient selection.  (How gorgeous are AMH fabrics?)  I used a low volume print with a touch of gold metallic from Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics for the background.
In the end I had to cut some leaves out because it would have been too long - as it is it's a yard long!  We also made two jack-o-lanterns because doing them with your kid is a lot of fun and one wasn't enough!

We also made some awesome chocolate sugar cookies and decorated them to take to Olivia's first Halloween party, organized by some of the "expat mommies" that I know.  She wore a little mouse costume we picked out at Carter's in August (I plan ahead peeps!).


My sister in law, who was visiting from Buenos Aires, also requested a little set of four placemats and I happily obliged.  She asked for orange and yellow, and I used the ever awesome Lemon Pepper pattern that I've already mentioned many times here.  I defy you to find a stain on these placemats!

Thanks for going back to October with me for a minute.  Next week: a springy finish!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts...


  1. Your finished fall runner is simply gorgeous and so are those lovely placemats. What yummy cookies! Surprised they aren't being nibbled on by that cute little mouse you have! Adorable!

  2. Love it all! Olivia is so so stinkin cute, and those cookies! You just rock :-)

  3. Autumn showcases my favorite colors so I'm all on board with you revisiting October! Love your runner, and your cookies - the dough looks like fudge. Very pretty placemats, too. I will have to look that pattern up.
