Finally got some Fall and more Chrismtas stuff done

Hi all,
Finally some good news, if it doesn't change tonight. They said my dad can go home tomorrow. I don't understand how 5 days ago, they said he had to go to a rehab, and now they say he doesn't and can have a nurse come in to his home and give him his antibiotice shots and teach him how to do it. It just doesn't make sense, how he has had 2 silent heart attacks in the past week and an irregular, rapid heartbeat and now they say he can go home and take care of himself. So, unless something else happens tonight, it looks like he will be home tomorrow, it has been almost 3 1/2 weeks since he has been home. I will be so glad to take his little doggie back to his house, 3 dogs are just too many in one small house. I know he said he won't want to leave his house for a long time, not even to go to the store, he missed his rocking chair and dog.
So, I got some more sewing done, I made up some little Santa ornaments. I am going to try to put as many finished items as I can in little zip baggies this year with a header on. They look so much neater, and will much easier to store. Their beards will stay nice and not stick to everything else they come in contact with. I love the way they turned out. I am going to make a bunch of these as I think they may sell fairly well, I am going to price them at $4.50 each.

Finally got to work on some pumpkins, these turned out nice. I stuffed them with my extra pieces of scrap fabric. So they are nice and heavy. I painted them with the terra cotta colored acrylic paint and then sanded and stained them. I made 2 prim crows, cut some leaves from an old quilt and painted them with a dark green acrylic paint and attached to the tops of pumpkins with lots of the green floral moss. I hope to get some scarecrows made this weekend. It is supposed to stay sunny.
Well, just wanted to update you on my dad and show you some of the things I got finished this week.

  4. OMG! The tarts arrived that I won. I can not believe how wonderful they smell. I live in the country and when I went out to get the mail, I opened the mailbox and wow it smelled wonderful. Bet I looked goofy sniffing the air and the mailbox. Even the dog joined in. LOL
    Thanks so much Sandy!
