Saturday was a picture perfect fall day for the In the Spirit of Friends show at Malabar Farm in Lucas, Ohio. Malabar Farm is now an Ohio State Park. It was built in 1939 by Pulitzer Prize winning author Louis Bromfield. In 1945, Bromfield hosted the wedding and honeymoon of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

Aren't these just the coolest things? The seller called them "pumpkin on a stick" and it's a real plant. My stem only has 4 pumpkins but some had many more. I was told it will dry nicely.
Though there were many things I could have purchased, I did not. This vintage basket was my main purchase along with a Stacy Nash cross stitch pattern. It's not like I don't have lots of other patterns I'd like to stitch. I'm just having a hard time putting down my hook.
Speaking of my hook ~ here is the progress I've made on my Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern. I made the right window a bit narrower though it still looks pretty fat. I should have added the munton bars before taking the picture. I am struggling with this style of hooking, but I will persevere! Tomorrow evening is hooking with (teacher) Katie so hopefully she can help me with what to do next!
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
