I am Grateful for Fall

A while back, I found this beautiful printable over at the letter 4.

I fell in love with it and downloaded it immediately!

It should be noted, though (in case you haven't noticed already), that I tend to take simple things and make them a bit more complicated.  =)

So, I took this print, transferred it to a nice scrap of white fabric I had just waiting to be beautified, and embroidered it.

It is hard to tell from the picture, but I added glitter paint to some of the leaves and to the word "fall."  Then, I mounted it on a fancy fall woven place mat thingy I've had forever.  

I made this project specifically for a new blog that I am a contributor for!  Woo!  Isn't that exciting?  The blog is called A Crafting Start.  It is a place to go for inspiration and help getting your creative juices flowing.  I am very excited about it.  Come by and visit!

I am very grateful for Fall.  As much as I love Summer, I love how Fall brings with it the holiday season and all the happiness involved with that.  It brings it in with warm colors, comforting smells, and good food.  =)
