I loved seeing what memories can prompt us to create!
Our first memory comes from Sue of QuiltTops. She says: "My childhood memory is that seeing pumpkins in a pumpkin patch would remind me that my favorite holiday, Halloween, was drawing near. The memory is now made into a pot holder that has been paper pieced and quilted."

"The childhood memory that inspired me to make this item is a ceramic pin or brooch my grandmother always wore in the Fall and always on Thanksgiving. I remember thinking when I was little that it was the most beautiful thing in the world. It had flower and it sparkled. In reality it was kind of big and not something I would ever wear, but as a child I thought it was amazing."

The gorgeous hair clip that follows is by Amy of BellaMia. She says "I love the natural beauty of fall! I remember always coming home from a walk in the woods or just from our backyard with my little collection of fall leaves, flowers, or acorns in my little hands. I still can't go trekking in nature without gathering some treasures to enjoy. This hair clip reminds me of those little momentos."

The last couple of entries are from Janet of Honey from the Bee. Both of her entries are earrings. "Whenever I think of my childhood memories of Autumn I can't help but think of Halloween and dressing up. I loved being scared when I also had the safety of my parents being with me."
Enjoy the changes in the season!
