Autumn is quickly approaching

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year. I don't get to enjoy it like I used to. We have lived in Florida for the past 14 years and we don't get the cool, clean air like we did up north. We go from hot summers to warm winter days. What happened to autumn? The only time you see any leaves drop in Florida is in March , then a week later they've been replaced with new growth. I guess in order to enjoy the fall season in the future I will have to go back to old New England where I was born and raised. When I think of fall in New England, I think of apple picking and taking day trips to the White Mountains of New Hampshire to take in all of the beautiful fall foliage, and hiking in the woods. With the way I'm rambling, can you tell I've had enough of this summer heat already?

I have finally started working on my primitive Annie dolls again in preparation for the holidays. I know I'm getting a late start. I've seen so many handmade creations for Halloween and Christmas from other crafters already but with sales being so sluggish on eBay, I've cut back on my own creativity.

Last year I purchased this pattern for a Witch Annie doll from Cat and the Fiddle Designs. I started putting it together yesterday and finished it up this afternoon. I will be listing it on eBay soon.

I have so many patterns and ideas I want to work on........but I'd better go finish my laundry first.
