Sunday Chattering

Hi everyone.  It's already Sunday night here in New Hampshire.  Today was quite chilly and windy, the perfect day to stay home and make a pot of chili and an apple pie. And make a little art too. 
I started a stack of journal pages today but the only thing I finished was this tag for Tag Tuesday and their latest bunting/pennant theme.  Everything I used for this tag came off my work table, which I actually cleaned off today. (And boy did it need it!) The tag is actually a tag from a beach towel I picked up last spring and all the other bits including the pennants were in the mess pile. The words were something that had been printed on some type of ad that arrived in the mail and that I had used the photo from. I decided to use the words so I could throw the scrap out.
And here's my pie. It may not be really clear but I used a  couple of different sized maple leaf cookie cutters to cut out leaves, and then I overlapped them to make the top. It looks rather like my yard right now which has filled up with leaves today since it's been so windy.
And thanks to those you who left me a comment mentioning the BBC show AutumnWatch  and how they have some episodes on New Hampshire. I went online and looked through all the clips and  they looked fantastic. Now I need to see if I can find a way to watch it. They have a similar show on our public tv station but I'm not sure if it is the same or not, but I know the hosts are definitely not the same.
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends and have a great start to the new week.

How cool to clean your desk and make art at the same time. Your tag line: It's back, and better than ever is making me look forward to Summer. Himself told me long term Winter weather is forecasted to be mild. Works for me. You're pie is amazing.I like the idea of using the cookie cutter to cut out the crust.
