Halloween Pin Garden - Detail

A fast, fun piece - I really like the way the Granny Apple green silk pops on this.

And for me - an instant finish with the frame!
There is also a set of pins to go with this - I'm awaiting delivery on the pins and will post another picture when they arrive.


My sister picked two final bouquets before our latest storm...

 Autumnal dahlias

Zinnias - Persian Carpet Mix - (Renee's Seeds)
These zinnias have bloomed, and bloomed, and bloomed their hearts out this summer -  it is a wonderful mix!
