"Hooked" on Wool Pillows for Fall

Last weekend my sister and our friend, Susan, made our annual visit to the Ozark Crafts Festival held every first full weekend in October. We always look forward to it, and we've said the only way not to go is if you had a legitimate excuse like being in the hospital or worse. We go, no matter what, and this year the "no matter what" about froze us to death. It was rainy and drizzly and only in the low 40's but nothing would keep us from our kettle corn, sugared nuts, corndogs and aisles and aisles of crafts, antiques, and loads of Fabulous Fall Fun. That's the phrase my sister coined to describe all the junk we love to do this time of year.

I found some more of the costly bittersweet, and a few other goodies, but my fave purchase of the day was this wonderful hooked wool pillow of a pumpkin with a crazy vine, and a black crow. Just the perfect addition to the Sun Porch Fall decor.




This was my purchase last year;
An adorable curly sheep on a great tan plaid.




And this from the year before.
I think I've started something here.


Here are a few other fun Hooked Wool Fall Pillows that you'll find on my newly created Pinterest board, "Happy Hooking".  Hope you'll come by my Pinterest Page and follow along. If you pin any of these next three images please go to the original source on my Pinterest Board. thanks bunches!






Hope you're having a wonderful week,
enjoying all the goodness of Fall.

  23. My dad used to make hooked rugs and macrame plant holders. He took it up after he retired maaannnnyyyy moons ago. Mostly his rugs are holiday ones. I am going to dig them out and see about having them made into pillows I can enjoy.
