pinwheel quilt and new treasures

Hello sweet friends!
Hope that you are enjoying some lovey autumn weather! It has finally cooled down and I have been enjoying those crisp cool autumn days and nights. 
I was so excited the other day to get some happy mail with my pinwheel quilt arriving back from the talented and sweet Donna of Donna's Lavender Nest who so beautifully quilted it for me! I just love how it turned out! She did such an awesome job!!
Here is a peak at the back. I used a vintage sheet which I just love using, and found some of these pretty aqua stripes for the binding. I can't wait to get it all finished, so I can start cuddling up with it!
So, this is my newest treasure that I am loving! I have been wanting a small chalkboard for awhile, and actually passed one up that was smaller than this at estate sale because of the price. Well, the other day at the thrift store, this beauty was waiting for me to bring it home and for under $5! It is meant to hang on the wall and not really sure of the history. Maybe it hung in a classroom or store?
So, I had a little practice on my chalkboard art for Halloween. It's not the best, but hopefully I'll get better. I am not great when it comes to drawing. ;) And, you can see my first little Gurley witch girl candle that I found, too. Her face is gone, but she's still cute!
This is another recent find that I am so looking forward to getting stitched up for the holidays. I have been on the look for this pattern, and how fun to have it already stamped, and ready to stitch away!

Well, thank you for all your lovely comments on my new autumn pretties! I have been working away on custom orders, and will soon be starting my Christmas goodies. 

Wishing you all a most lovely weekend, and thank you so much for coming by to visit with me! xo Heather
