~*Happy Halloween*~

Happy Halloween!!
I just listed this fall rug last night. It will probably be the last fall rug I will hook. I do have my eye on a pattern that I've had. It's a Thanksgiving rug. So we'll see. Snowmen and santas are calling me. LOL!!

~*Patriotic Flag Rug*~

This is a rug that I made for a birthday gift. I made it for Chris, she's giving the rug to her MIL Eileen for her birthday. This rug is a Blackbird Design. I have been really busy and haven't been blogging. I'm trying to get another rug hooked. It is a fall rug~I think it's the last fall rug I'm hooking.

Yesterday my mom and I went down to Columbus to go shopping. We had a good time. Also, we stopped at The Ohio State Universary to visit Lindsay. She's doing great and loves living in Columbus. There is so much to do there.

Hopefully it will warm up in Ohio. It was 21 on the thermometer this morning. I need to spend a day outside and clean up. I usually wait till every leaf has dropped from the trees.LOL!! And AWAYS hope for high winds to blow all the leaves away.

~**Pumpkin Blossom Rug**~

Just listed this rug on Ebay tonight. It is hand hooked by me and the design is from
Nuts and Berries Blackbird Designs book.

~*Last Bouquet of Summer Flowers*~

Another proven winner. Next year I will planting these flowers again. They bloomed and bloomed without much deadheading.

Last night we had a killing frost here in Ohio. The temperature got down to 25. I brought in all of the plants I wanted to save.

~*A Fun Day*~

Today the Pine Tree Barn had their annual Colonial Williamsburg Festival. This is the first time I've went to the festival.

The sound of the gunshots WOKE me up!!

The French lace maker was hilarious! So talented, he made it look so easy. I wouldn't even attempt trying. LOL!

Many of the artisians are in the Early American Life Directory.

~*Street Fair*~

Isn't this a beautiful vegetable display? Anyone can enter the category. It sure looks like alot of work. You have to label all the vegetables. I would love to see the person's garden that entered this display.

These are pumpkins carved by the local kids. I remember when my kids used to enter their pumpkins. It was so much fun for them.

This was our town's 120th free street fair.

These are the harvest displays of Loudonville and West Holmes FFA. The FFA in each school sets the display up and they are judged.

The kids enter their decorated pumpkins in the fair. All the pumpkins are so different.

This is the scarecrow category. Here are a few pictures of some of the entries.
