Contest Three Fall Felted Bag Exchange

So this week's topic:
As of this weekend, the season has officially changed on the calendar - but what makes Autumn feel like Autumn to you, and why?

I love seing all the mums and pumpkins outside peoples houses. All decorations going up for halloween. The best reason is my birthday is on October 11. Also the nights are cooler and the days are still a little warm.

These things get me into the fall and thanksgiving feeling.

Here are my children being taught how to shoot bow with their father. They love shooting out back at targets. I can't wait till they are good enough we can enter them in some competitions(if they want to). My DH has even been thinking of getting the training for teaching the Girl scouts how to shoot for their badges. He is an archery nut, even makes his own bows. He was so proud that night that they both did so well.Chip off the old block.

A Little Sad News

My Mother is going through a hard time right now. My Dad past away seven years ago and it always hits her hard. I try to keep busy so I do not get down. I hate feeling that way. We all miss him so much.

I would have loved my children soooooo much and spoiled them more than my mother does. He was an awesome man and everyone in our family miss him every day.

So if you read this say a little prayer for my family to make it hurt a little less on Friday. Also that my mother has an alright day. Maybe if she gets to see the kids she will be fine.

So that is enough of being down until next year.

Love Sarah

Here is my part half way done

This is my partners bag half way done. I am so loving the color sit is turning out wonderfully. I am tiring something new with embellishments this time I hope my partners loves it as much as I am. I am knitting fat so I can make my felted scarf from winning the contest. I will write more later I have to start homework and dinner soon.
Hope You are having an awesome day
