Helen,
I am sorry to see October fly by so soon. It is one of my favorite months, possibly because it is my birth month.:) I love wandering little country roads and taking in all the beauty of autumn.
The treacle market looks like a fun place to browse and enjoy vintage wares. Your French coffee pot is a great match to the cute little checkered mug. The bowl full of clothespins reminded me of the clothespin bag full of them that I have that was my mother's. You have made another cute little pincushion with the perfect redwork. One cannot have too many pincushions. Have a happy, crafty week.
Thank you for sharing.

More loveliness from your corner. A little embroidery adds so much to your pin cushions. Love the X-s on the seams. Yes, October flew by.

I enjoyed going out with you today, dear Helen. Beautiful scenery and just the sort of shops I like. But what happened to October? It flew by.

Of course the first picture really pulled me in! The pink flowers and pink pumpkins... what is better than that??? (smiles).... unless it's the gorgeous Fall countryside and a shop full of treasures! Wonderful photos! I too am sad to see October go.. I love that month and it's not yet quite into the "rush" of the holidays. Hugs.. Marilyn

Thanks for posting the beautiful views of your trip to see your dear family as well as sharing your vintage find and your pretty redwork project. I am trying to learn Lucy's Neat Ripple pattern making a preemie blanket. The first row is a challenge! Hoping you have a productive happy week, Helen xx
