Counting Our Blessings

Our garden has provided us with much delicious produce this season.  Even today, we harvested pole beans, peas, tomatoes and zucchini for our supper.  It was fun to pull out some scraps in fall colours for a new table runner.  I decided to use my Felicity pattern, as even though it was designed in the spring, the base of the fan always reminded me of a cornucopia.  I fussy words for the centres:  Hope, Family, Peace, Friends, Give Thanks, and Counting Our Blessings.
 I quilted swirls and scrolly leafy shapes using Aurifil 50 weight thread in green, gold, and natural.
My Grandmother made the little pumpkin in a senior's ceramics class many, many years ago and it's always part of our fall decor.
You can download the pattern here.


  1. Glad to hear about your garden. Since we are inundated with raccoons and squirrels, we ended up with no tomatoes. That's a lovely runner and it's so nice that you still have that pumpkin.

  2. Love the autumn runner! One can be as felicitous in autumn as in spring, yes?

  3. Just beautiful! You make it sound as though you just 'whipped it up'! Sweet pumpkin memory of your gran. The afghan on my bed was made by mine, and I think of her every night when I pull it up over me. I don't have a garden anymore and I sure do miss the fresh veggies! Eat 'me up and enjoy! XO
