Fall into Savings: Autumn Sheep

They's something kindo' harty-like about the atmusfere
When the heat of summer's over and the coolin' fall is here—
Of course we miss the flowers, and the blossoms on the trees,
And the mumble of the hummin'-birds and buzzin' of the bees;
But the air's so appetizin'; and the landscape through the haze
Of a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn days
Is a pictur' that no painter has the colorin' to mock—
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
~from The Frost is on the Punkin by James Whitcomb Riley

Of course there are several more verses to this classic poem, but this particular phrase I feel has captured the essence of Autumn. It's one of my favorite times of year because it's like a crescendo of color... nature's climax just before Winter. Now if you can just picture in your mind, me reading this poem as Vivaldi's Autumn Movement plays in the background  while I'm stitching out pumpkins and autumn leaves on the embroidery machine and enjoying the aroma wafting through the air of the homemade Sourdough Cinnamon rolls that are being baked in the oven. Cozy huh?! 

Now it's your turn! While the leaves are still falling and the frost is beginning to settle on the "punkins" you can stitch our darling Autumn Sheep set for the 4x4 & 5x7 hoops! Click the photo below for more information.

And of course, I wouldn't tempt you with the aroma of homemade cinnamon rolls without giving you a chance to make some for yourself too! You'll find the recipe right here on The Hoop & Holler Embroidery Café.
If you like Vivaldi or are even wondering who he is. Turn your volume up and listen while you're reading this.
