Finally It's Fall

 Fall is finally in the air for us central Floridians. The humidity is down a little and the mornings and evenings are cooling into the 70s. This weather makes me think of relaxing with cups of tea, stocking up on chili and soup fixings and pumpkin pies. 

I haven't accomplished anything I wanted to this past weekend. It seems as if I have been busy but not productive. Have you ever had days like that? 
I did finish the table topper I started last week.
It is in the picture above. 

I also finished a few more stuffed ornaments. I just love the gingerbread men on this heart.

I started these, two snack mats and a toilet tank topper last night and planned to finish them today. Didn't happen. I had another busy day and accomplished nothing.
What is a toilet tank topper?

A toilet tank topper is the latest rage in decorating. They are like small table runners that fit on the top of the toilet tank lid. They add color and style to your bathroom. I have seen super classy ones made from tapestry to simple one layer of cotton. I personally would not have the tapestry because I couldn't throw it in the wash. 

Do you decorate for the holidays? Do you include the bathroom in your holiday decorating?

  1. You have had some fun sewing! I decorate for Fall on Oct 1 I put out some stuff (not Halloween) and then Nov 1 put out more specific to Thanksgiving , too. I will sometimes add a simple ornament or ceramic pretty to the bathroom but haven't used a toilet lid topper - yet! lol

  2. I have a cat who likes to sleep on top of the toilet tank. I keep a hand towel there to catch the hair--not fancy, but it works. I guess I could dress it up a bit! :)

  3. Yes, I make quilts for every level surface, including the toilet tank. I sometimes use doilies too. I do still need to make some seasonal ones, to use up some of my leftover Christmas fabric!

  4. I stick with the basics for holiday decorating. Keep it simple in the living area only. The table topper is very pretty.

  5. What a clever idea! I love the toilet tank topper... so many possibilities for decorating throughout the seasons. And a quick, small project for instant gratification!
