Autumn has arrived....

Hello my dears, oh how I have missed you all! It seems that life took over and suddenly we are into Fall.... I just wanted to share some of my garden's bounty with you. This year the Dutchman grew fabulous tomatoes and onions and basil, dill and the best Yukon Gold potatoes!! I even tried my hand at cheese making......I shall post more about that as I learn more...... even the pizza looks like it's in Autumn colors.
My favourite Fall arrangement.....

My new pumpkin dyed tablecloth.....okay, I know, I got carried away with the orange dye....but I love it.
So what have you all been doing? We have had our Thanksgiving already but I want to know what you are going to do for yours, and what's your menu going to include? Do you do turkey or do you have a special menu planned?

Margaret, so nice to talk to you again!
What a wonderful garden harvest. Love this time of year. Your display is beautiful.
I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.
I haven't been up to much here, just blogging and keeping up with ones that I follow. I'm not sewing quite yet, I need
some more back work done and hopefully I can try.
Warmest Regards,
Susan

Margaret, It is wonderful to see a post from you. Fall is my favorite time. I enjoyed your post this evening. Thanksgiving is a time spent with family. We usually have turkey with the trimmings and includes having some polish dishes with my husband having grandparents who came from Poland.
Our family will all be together this coming weekend for our grandson's 7th birthday. Then on Wednesday of that week our son leaves for a job in New Orleans.
Have a great week and will you send me some of your pizza. It sure looks yummy. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

I missed your beautiful posts! That pizza looks delicious, and your table decoration is stunning. Fall is really upon us now. I prefer Spring and Summer, but I'm finally trying to get in the mood for Fall as well, and your beautiful photos help a lot!

I have been wondering how you are!!! So glad to see your posts. What a cute pumpkin doll!!! I KNOW you made her! She's adorable. I put up my Halloween tree last week & have the little bear you made me tucked up underneath it. He makes me smile & think of you everytime I see him. Hope you're wearing your fall necklace I made you as this is the season. And as for the orange tablecloth... I LOVE IT! Hugs! Charlene

Margaret-
Your fall colors are magnificent- your blog header is just stunning! So funny- even the pizza is dressed for fall!

Are you recovered from your travels? I've been thinking about you and just wanted to say hello. I'm thinking you have cold weather up there now.
I think we are seeing the last of our Indian summer--
