Fall is my Favorite

Happy Autumn,
And it is lovely, cool nights, and days filled with color from GOD's coloring pages. The sights and sounds and smells  of the season.  A feast for the senses.
The pumpkins,
Apple Cider
The Crunch of the leaves
The colors
The Crispness
Soups & Pies from the hearth :)
It is a grand time of year, My all time favorite.
What do you like about the fall?

Fall Simple Joys

I love the fall, with it's harvest of Apples and Pumpkins.  Our local Apple Orchard is getting their crops in and we stopped out and I bought  a peck of apples to can.  Peeling apples for a pie is not my favorite thing to do, I want to make the pie crust and put in the apples with no fuss. So, we bought enough apples for me to can, I got 5 quarts out of the peck, the apples were on the small side, but now I'll have apple pie filling fresh from the orchard when winter and early spring arrive. Five possible apple pies.
The orchard also has it's own Ice Cream Shoppe, where they make their own ice cream and so it was an extra lovely trip, as we always stop for scream.
I found this cute little shelf there, only $12.00, love hearts

There has been a lovely change in the air the last few days, so fall like, cool and with a gentle rain.  It energizes me and the hearth calls for soups, casseroles and baked goods to warm the air with aromas of comfort food and bakery.The pumkins are out, I would love to have a  pumpkin farm, I find them so adorable and lively colored laying the fields, such a simple pleasure.

Filet Crochet how do I....

where do I begin?  I would like to crochet in thread an Eagle's head 8" round.  I have no idea where to begin with this, and am looking for reference materials or pattern. I've never done filet crochet before, and I suppose I can do it, knowing basic crochet stitches. Can I take a design I like and make it smaller?
