Prim Old World Santa Doll

Now that we have cooler weather and the leaves are falling, I'm inside most of the time. And that means I'm more busy with Christmas goodies!

I have a couple new dolls and one new pattern to share with all my blogging friends!

I so adore this guy! He is available in my etsy shop along with a pattern to create him yourself! My Etsy shop is here >>> Rock River Stitches

And also available in my shop is Miss Holly. She is perfect for Christmas or even after the holidays. Her holly halo can be removed to display year round!

And I have to show you the gorgeous Virginia Creeper growing on the shop barn behind my house. It turns all the autumn colors this time of the year. 

Everywhere you look in NW Illinois now is color. A few of the trees have most of their leaves gone but still much color to see!

A few weeks ago hubby and I went to an amazing pumpkin patch. Country Corners has 80 acres of pumpkins, gourds, corn, soybeans, and who knows what else I didn't see!

They also had a few farm animals you could feed. I just love goaties!

All of these gourds I picked from the field. I could have spent hours looking for the perfect ones, but hubby was ready to go. 

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween! I'm ready with the candy I hide from hubby. He is terrible when it comes to those snack size candy bars!

Peace and Love to All!

Fall in the Dakota's

A few weeks ago hubby and I took a much needed vacation to South Dakota. I hadn't been there since I was a teenager with my parents. I've been wanting to visit again, so off we went! So easy now that hubby is retired.

 The Badlands

Awesome driving through a herd of buffalo where the wild animals rule the road!

 Devils Tower in Wyoming

 As we were walking the trail that goes all the way around devils tower, saw this guy hiking up it!

Amazing place to visit! Love it!

 Mt. Rushmore! 

Crazy Horse Monument. Couldn't believe how much progress they had made since my last visit as a kid. When I was there in the early seventies you could barely make out crazy horses face!

I got very busy on sewing when I got home from vacation and here are a few items that I have made up and are available to purchase from my etsy shop!
