Autumn at Sweet Pea's Garden

Saturday was the first day of Autumn, and Sweet Pea's Garden is ready with new items for this beautiful season, including the Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays.  This season always reminds us of cool, crisp air, warm apple cider, and warm, sunny days spent with family and friends.

At this time of year, we find it difficult to accomplish as much as we would like.  There are so many things to make for so many different occasions, but not enough time!  While in the midst of making our popular nativity sets (including handmade stable -- see picture below), we're also trying to fit in making turkeys, witches, and snowmen.  Too many ideas and not enough time!!

If you like to keep up with what we're working on, we'll give you a rundown of projects in progress (and in some cases, completed but not yet posted to our Etsy shop):
  • turkey placemats
  • pumpkin placemats
  • autumn table runner (made of the same fabrics as the large quilt at the beginning of this post)
  • California Girl table runner (think seaglass green, coral pink, and sunny yellow)
  • whale print lap quilt
  • stuffed snowmen
  • Halloween table runner
  • little stuffed turkeys
  • paper clay sculpted witches
  • mini wooden witches
  • Christmas table runners in a variety of sizes
  • mini tree skirts with trees and gingerbread men
  • snowman tree skirt
  • and of course, the nativity sets!
