Fall is approaching, and there's still so much to get done before the nice weather ends, but it's so hard to get to it!

Last year I made a few fun projects to celebrate fall.  There were so many of them, I combined them all in one page, here;

Christmas is never far away.  By the middle of August, it's really heating up - I guess a lot of folks like to start on some seasonal delights while the kids are off at summer camp or visiting relatives.

I compiled another page with some Rustic Christmas Crafts - they are all simple to make, like all of my projects, but they add a real primitive and country feel to your Christmas decor.

The draft stopping power of a Door Mouse has to be seen to be believed.  Make one for your door, if it's not holding out the cold.  Do it before heating season starts - another good project for those sweaters that got into the dryer and felted a bit.

For a really fun fall project, think about making a scarecrow - here's one that is hilarious, and really easy to make, with leaves to stuff the head, ragged hair made from burlap, and a twig for a nose.
