An Autumnal Equinox update

Finally got around to hanging stuff up in my stitchy area. This past weekend, I've been straightening out that area and tossing stuff that needed to be tossed out a million years ago, such has scraps of batting that were too tiny to do anything with, glass from frames, etc. It took quite a bit of time, but I feel like I accomplished something and it needed to be done. I told myself I could not start Nora Corbett 2008 Trick or Treat fairy until it was all cleaned up and organized.  (I cannot stand disorganization and crap just piled up willy nilly. It makes my teeth ache and i find it slovenly and disrespectful of the things I have worked so hard to obtain. But, as Alton Brown says: That's another show. )

Here are pics of my stitchy area all spic and span cleaned and decorated for the fall/halloween holidays. Hope you enjoy them. :)

Overview of the whole area:

perfect frame for it.:


I am off to get breakfast and start on my fairy. I hope everyone has a good day today!

Wow, your stitchy area looks fantastic! I recently did this with mine and it really feels great to have it all organized, doesn't it?

The Autumn decor looks awesome as well!
