Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop - My Day! psst..Giveaway!!

Here we are at my day for the Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop...



A big huge thank you goes to Mdm Samm and Cherry for hosting this fall party!  They have done an awesome job of keeping us all in line and making this a wonderful experience for us all to learn and grow with each other...lots of Fall eye-candy this time around!


We are just starting to see the leaves turn here in Indiana and I suspect that in the next two weeks the color will be better but here are a couple of photos of the trees around our property.





Now, onto my blocks for the hop...

I wanted to use my AccuQuilt Go! Cutter and pumpkin die for this one...
And the blocks I made are the following...

Always better with a friend



In the pumpkin patch


And you know there's always one in the crowd (and, yes, that sometimes describes me, lol!)




Eat more apple pie and carve a zucchini!

Here they are together...I think I will make a runner with them...






 If you are interested in a fall colors giveaway, I found this charm pack of Tamarack Grove.  I will send this to one lucky comment maker as long as I can find your contact info...If you are a no-reply blogger and don't include a way to reach you I will have Mr. Random draw again.  You don't have to be a follower to win but I would love it if you were :)  I will draw at the end of the hop!


Here are all the other blogs involved in the hop today, be sure to stop and say hi...

Tuesday 2

And you can find the whole Blog Hop schedule on Cherry's sidebar here

I love all things Fall, with pumpkins being at the top of my list. I'm not sure if I have that die or the leaves and acorns die. Great idea for a table runner or wall hanging or even a Fall decoration for the front door. Very inspiring, thank you. ;-> Toni Anne

The blocks will make an amazing runner. I love the touch of embroidery. You have some beautiful fall pictures. I grew up in WV and we had fantastic falls. I now live in OK. We haven't had a frost yet - so the leaves have not begun to turn. We often used to go to WV for Thanksgiving and would drive through lower IN. The countryside was amazing.

Thank you for participating and sharing.
