I thought that before I continued with my laundry and housework and cleaning and organizing-before-leaving tasks, I would sit down here and say hello and show you my next release! I had a lot of fun designing this one.. my favorite thing to do is to mix traditional fall colors with surprise ones, and I hope you like how it turned out as much as I did! Thank you, Miss Rindy Richards, for your beautiful stitching. 🙂

By the way, Harvest Keeper can be stitched as a sister to The Beekeeper, if you were inclined to pick this one up earlier this year. But she would also be just fine all on her own!
