Kim said...

Love bonfires in the fall!!! Hope I win the thread keep!!!!

Donna Munson said...

Fall is when the rain returns to Texas a bit to refresh the soil and plants. That smell of moisture in the dirt is so comforting to me because I know that the first cool front is just around the corner as well! I always get so energized by those small changes in the air and ground.

kimstitch3 said...

Cool, crisp, colorful mornings with no mosquitos!!!

sandi said...

Love the colors of Fall, and of course there is Halloween, my favorite designs to stitch. In Texas, it is the end of extreme heat. Just a great time of the year.

Bridget said...

I love the colors of fall and the cooler temperatures.

Betsy said...

The best things about Fall are the cool crisp mornings, the change between seasons, after the blistering heat of summer and before the frigid cold of winter, the rich color of the leaves changing color, yummy, warming, hearty soups (although I like soup anytime of year), and, best of all, October is my birthday month!!!

Krissy B. said...

Cooler temps, longer walks, my favorite colors everywhere, and all the goodies from the veg gardens, and Mary Jane peanut butter kisses to name a few. I wish it was a longer season here in northern MN. Krissy B.

Joyce Foster said...

I love the color and cooler weather fall brings. Most of all I like having time to stich more, since my perennial garden no longer requires my time. The thread keep is so cute!

Lillian Carol said...

Autumn is my favorite time of year.....don't know if it's the glorious colors, the rustling leaves under foot, or the sweet smells all around me! I love to go to the local farms for apples, cider and donuts, and of course pumpkins for decorating. And of course there is Halloween.....I love prim and spooky stitching!

Darlene said...

cooler days

Mary Jane Blahnik said...

linda said...

I love autumn and harvest: bittersweet, acorns, crows, cornstalks, pumpkins, and the vibrant colors of fall in CT!

Carol Bisek said...

Love the crunching of leaves and the spicy nutmeg foods. The trees resting for the coming winter is poetic to me.

Shelly said...

Love it says this Halloween fanatic. My favorite things about the season-cooler temps, the changing of the leaves, my zucchini pickles and prickly pear jelly are done and put away, having to close the front door in the evenings, finally getting to make my beef stews and chili, planning my Halloween decorations, stitching more Halloween designs, and stocking up on hot drinks-Gosh, I can't wait! Thanks, Lori, for this giveaway!

rx2massey said...

The smell of burning the newly raked leaves! Jumping with friends into the pile before they get burned. Lol!! The morning dew on the apple trees waiting to be picked. The smell of cinnamon and fresh pastry Jill used in her apple dumplings!!

Georgan Tilley said...

Hate to see the end of summer but the cooler weather means lots of time for baking and stitching.

k_mosaic63 said...

Mother Nature is at her best during the autumn season. The vast array of colors, the refreshing chill in the air, it sound walking on leaves and the anticipation of change.

ifiwereme said...

I love the chill in the air, hot apple cider, and the beautiful changing colors of the leaves.

Prims and Needles said...

I don't even know where to begin....I love Autumn, Fall and Halloween because we begin to get cool, dry air, which in return gives me lots of energy, especially to craft. I love the colors that come with Autumn. They are so warm and inviting, especially a primitive pumpkin orange. It is also a time for baking. Apple and pumpkin pies, cookies, breads. I tend to make a lot of comfort food in the Autumn time, not only is it delicious, but it warms up the house and smells good. It also reminds me of growing up and how my Mom always decorated our house for Fall, Halloween and then Thanksgiving. Wonderful memories. And alas, there is pumpkin everything at Dunkin Donuts! I go hog wild in the beginning of September, but by November, I am ready to move on to another flavor! LOL! I usually overdue the pumpkin thing! LOL!

PamelaDawn said...

I love the bright fall leaves on the maple trees in our area!

Julie - My Primitive Heart said...

Hi Lori,

Autumn is the very best for so many reasons and October is the very, very best. Birthday month, cooler temps finally (Texas summers), and the air even smells different. To me, Autumn is when the world comes alive! Your new threadholder is precious!

Donna said...

Cool crisp mornings, cooler days and nights. Change of leaves, pumpkins, harvesting our little garden. Colors, love the colors of Autumn. In everything, even the crosstitch projects I work on. The smell in the air and reblooming plants in my garden. Autumn is my favorite season of all!

Stitcher0917 said...

I love the sights and smells of fall! That color palette is second to none! I also love decorating my home with wonderful fall items! And I can leave them up until Thanksgiving!

Carolyn Boutilier said...

Fall is my favorite time of the year. Just wished it last longer. I love the colors, picking pumpkins, apples and the smell of a fresh baked apple pie. Picking up the black walnuts and saving some for dyeing and to make a black walnut cake. thanks for the giveway.

I love the cool, crisp fall air most of all since we have had temps around 100 degrees for too long. Also love anything pumpkin in the fall...already have my pumpkin spice coffee creamer!

jakera13 said...

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the fall colors, the crisp cool evenings and the ever changing sunlight.

Winds of Time said...

Autumn begins with a subtle change in the skies. A deeper blue, clouds that linger. The horses in the barnyard, steam coming off their backs as the early sun rises. Barn cats huddled in the hay bales. Frost coats the ground. The nights become clear and chilled. The season greets us with migrants birds calling high above. The harvesting of the season's last crops, machines churning into the dark night. A quiet returns, the season for enjoying the fullness of life.

Diane Battleson said...

Jenny Wright said...

I love everything about the fall. The colors, the smells, the snap in the air. It's my birthday in October and I always celebrate by watching To Kill A Mockingbird. For some reason it's an autumnal movie in my mind.
Best,
Jenny

Susan said...

The beautiful fall colors and the bite in the air!

Donna Rae Barrow said...

What spooky and generous fun!!! Autumn is always a reset, reboot, begin-again time for me... the cool, crisp air, beginning of a new year of classes and worship series at church, all the rich-colored linens and decorations make a reappearance, soothing foods always simmering or baking in the kitchen...

She Seeketh Wool said...

jan said...

How to arrive at one thing for why I love autumn. Love the crisp weather, the colorful leaves followed by the crisp and crunchy leaves, the charming and fun decorating opportunities. It really is a beautiful time of year. Maybe best is that it is no longer humid here in northern VA. ...jan P.S.: And can't forget - your gathering of primitive friends!

Autumn is time for mushrooms, chestnuts and walks on the woods to see the color of the leaves. We go into the woods to look for mushrooms and then we cook them with garlic and parsley to eat with the meat. We roast chestnuts in the oven and we eat them with some sweets called panellets on Halloween night (called here night of All Saints).
Thanks!!

Culinary Charlatan said...

I love that the crispness of the air, the scent the different leaves make as they decompose in rustling, happy piles; the warmth of the sun but the chill breeze that makes the heart ache with the hint of a forgotten memory. Something you can't place but feel deep inside your heart. It's beautiful and sad and ever so romantic!

Sharon said...

I'm a summer girl so Fall is a hard one for me! However, my beautiful daughter was born on October 30, 1985, 3 months early! Weighing in at a huge pound and a half! We always went all out decorating for October because it's her birthday month. I still do and she's 29! This little threadkeep is adorable! Very Halloweenie! LOL

KAREN said...

Elisabetta Borgomainerio said...

Great chance Lori but I'm not a lucky one....and the subject is one of the best of my favorite time of the year!!!

Amy Thompson said...

I'm enjoying basting in the sun, so am not really looking forward to Fall. It's coming no matter what. I live in the city and come Fall we'll be able to leave our air conditioning off, so that's a plus. Gotta remember that part of the situation, right?

Lynn said...

I love everything about autumn - the vibrant colours,the crisp coolness and bright sky of an autumn day and who can forget the smells or tastes... pumpkin loaves baking, damp leaves, spiced apple cider. I love to take a drive out in the country on such a day and absorb all that autumn offers. It's nature's last hurrah before the stillness of winter. After all this I need a chai latte to remind me of my favourite season!

Rugs and Pugs said...

I love the smell of burning leaves...but that's not allowed...sigh.
Hugs :)
Lauren

Susan said...

Colors, cool crisp air and pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!

TerriSanislo said...

Fall always carries me back to when I was in college in northwest Ohio. Saturdays were football games, and we all had our windows open. The smells of fall come back to me first: dried leaves, dry dirt. And then the sounds of those same dried leaves crackling underfoot and the cheering of the football crowd. The sun was lower in the sky, so winter was approaching. But to us, new college kids with our lives ahead of us, fall was the beginning of another season of friendship and new experiences! Life has never been so exciting as fall in small-town Ohio so many years ago.

Leisha said...

Love Everything about Fall! The break from the heat, the colors, the smell, the Holidays... Everything.! Thanks, for the chance to win your wonderful gift, Lori!

Autumn means crisp night and warm days. A feeling of anticipation is in the air. Trees are releasing leaves of golden hues. Apples, pumpkins, cider with a hint of mystery in the air. Tailgating, football games and lots of raking of leaves!

Simply Primitive said...

Autumn is my very favorite time of year. I love the fall colors and the crisp air. There is something so cozy about gathering everything in from the garden for the winter ahead.

Linda said...

Kelly said...

Autumn is my favorite season. The smell of the leaves & how they crunch when you walk through them, not to mention the beautiful colors. Cooler days & beautiful blue skies. Bonfires!

Dorothy said...

I love the colours the leaves on the trees change to and for us the cooler days. Autumn here is March,April and May. Just now it's Winter and cold and wet. Good days to sit in front of the fire and sew.

Mary said...

I love autumn because of the colors, all the colors and the decorations. No a huge fan of halloween however love pumpkins and stitch a lot of them as you can leave them out until the beginning of December.

Diana said...

I like Autumn because that is when the leaves on the trees turn red, orange and brown.

brenda said...

Thanks for the chance! I love Halloween.....it's the start of all my favorite holidays!

denise said...

Please enter my name! I love your floss holders!

Lynn Brooks said...

Autumn is, by far, my favorite season! I love the crispness in the air...no heavy humidity, just perfect for taking deep breaths. The color palette is absolutely gorgeous and shifts from day to day, greens give way to reds, oranges, and yellows as nature prepares for a winter slumber. Many folks, myself included, go into a sort of nesting mode. I tend to begin baking more, crafting more, doing lots of homey things that bring great joy and that will help occupy me for the coming months of cold. I would certainly love to have such an adorable thread holder to assist me and thank you so much for thinking of us and having this wonderful giveaway!

My favorite thing is displaying all of the wonderful Halloween themed things that I have stitched over the course of the year, and seeing how my collection grows. I love anything tombstone-themed, or anything with ravens or crows, so Halloween is a wonderful time of year!

Laura said...

Ahh the thing I like about Fall and Halloween... The colors, decorating, making my grandaughters Halloween costumes, the temps oh the change in the leaves in Ohio!Love!

I love the cooler temperatures of Autumn.

I don't think my first comment took ? My love of autumn began when I was a wee sprig. My mom would start to decorate the house with pumpkins and scarey things. Piles of leaves in the yard, and back then the smell of burning leaves was awesome. I love it all!!! Thank you Lori !!

Hi Lori Thanks for the chance to win the needle punching. I always like to win things I don't do I LOVE Autumn The smell of leaves burning, apple picking, decorating with the color of leaves, staying in the house when it cools off and stitching, craft shows starting, just about everything else.

My favorite thing about autumn/Halloween is that it is apple picking time! We pick our own and buy fresh squeezed cider too! I love decorating for Halloween especially using my 5 black kitties!!

I love the smells of fall and the colors of fall that are found in the trees, grasses, fields and flowers. I don't like what fall means though; that being that winter is right around the corner ( I live in northern Wisconsin).

Thank you for the opportunity for us to win your lovely floss minder!!

I love so much about the fall the colors in the trees, pumpkins, lots of pumpkins, cooler weather. I used to live in Georgia and missed the autumn changes.

Kim said...

I love the cool morning in the fall! It's been so hot this year that I'm really looking forward to it coming!

Barbara said...

I love the clear cool mornings and observing the trees changing colour. I love my garden in autum as the colours in the garden at that time of year are my favourites.

Charlene said...

I love crooked purple witches hats, bright orange pumpkins, the brown, yellows, purples, and reds of fall foliage. Pretty Victorian Halloween images (not so much the scary ones! ��), mist rising from the ground where I once lived. The joy on my grand children's faces as they Trick-or-Treat.

Rebecca Franks said...

Fall, perfect Fall ... wary kids head back to school, early mornings getting them off and out the door means "extra" time to stitch in a quiet house with great morning light... coffee tastes better in the Fall, pajamas feel softer & usually our Iowa humidity mellows out and porch stitching & outdoor book reading is once again possible ~ hoorah!

you are now well again. Julia in SC

BITTERSWEET...the wonderful orange berries with their yellow shell that grow in my trees on my property. I harvest the vines and use them everywhere! Just so it's a "bittersweet" kind of day! Hugs, Carol

Theresa said...

What isn't there to love about Fall/Halloween. The cool air filled with fire wood smoke...the colors of the leaves....the candy that one collects on Hallow's Eve with her little ones hand in hers. I could go on and on LOL!!!

Rori said...

Where I am from, Salinas Valley in CA, we don't get the changing colors, but we know fall is in the air. Cool, crisp mornings and the anticipation of fires in the wood burning stove.

Oh, I love this ~ your artwork is so cute!!!

My favorite thing about Autumn is the cool weather and all the colors! And cider. Hot spiced apple cider :)
