“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”

14 Oct

Update:  After checking out all of the fun projects turning up at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog, I decided its high time for me join in!  Challenge number 20 is paper piecing-thats one of the things Lawn Fawn stamps are absolutely made for right?  🙂

I swear I can still hear this Amy Grant song playing on repeat in my parent’s living room at Christmas time while we decorated the house.  Yes, I said Christmas, but really this song perfectly describes my mood every fall.  “It’s the hap-happiest seeeeaaason of aaaaaaaall!”

Here are two of my favorite things:


My Lawn Fawn collection is s-l-o-w-l-y growing!  (Just wait until the UPS man comes next week.)  I ❤ them, I decided I better stop talking about it and use them!  (I believe I have said that a few times…)  So here is what I came up with today to celebrate what was a beautiful fall this year:

A little paper-piecing, a little twine, a little My Mind’s Eye, and a whole ‘lotta Basic Grey makes this one happy autumn greeting.  The scariest thing I did was cut apart the sentiment so that I could make it fit along the banner.

Product info here.

Enjoy whats left of the season!
