Dragonfly Tablet Sleeve

I know, I know! My dragonfly love is getting out of control!  But I gave into my addiction to sew up a simple tablet sleeve.  I did some stitching on the wings to resemble veins but it's not showing up here.

The wee pocked holds the wee SD card adapter or whatever the kids are calling it these days. The shade of green is not true to the colour in this photo.

Why did this turn sideways? Baffled.

I used synthetic felts for this project and I was iffy about it because I have only ever used pure wool felt, but I actually like this stuff as it won't pill or fray, so I have found it to be a decent product and it costs fifty cents for an 8X8 piece.

If you can believe, it was cheaper to have this shipped from freaking TAIWAN than from any vendor in Canada or the USA, on Etsy.

Fall Luminary

I made this simple luminary with a glass mayonnaise jar and coated some maple leaves with Mod Podge and arranged them on the glass.

Fall on the Wall

I saved some glass jugs that once upon a time were filled with Sangria (hic!), and trimmed some branches from my maple trees for a quick and zero cost outdoor decoration.

I set out two more on the side table and I'm waiting to see how long they'll last because Canadian Thanksgiving is this Sunday, and I'd like to have them as part of my dining room decor.

I love fall so much, but the changing of the leaves needs to last longer than it does, because it's just so spectacular and stunning.  I love the smell of dying crisp leaves and the rustling sound they make when you walk through them.

I will say that they break my back to rake them up, though.  That is some serious pain!
