Pumpkin Patch

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.
Henry David Thoreau

Me, I would rather eat anything pumpkin!
My sister  told me that she went to Michael’s and saw fabric pumpkins.
She told me that I should make some more.
My friends and I are going to make some next Monday.
I have already made large and medium size fabric pumpkins, so today, I tried my hand at a petite pumpkin.
This time, I inserted the needle through the center to make the pumpkin ribs.
This method makes it look more like a tomato pin cushion than a pumpkin.
I will go back to the other method of inserting the needle from the bottom, pulling tight to form a rib, then tie a knot at the top before going downward on another seam and repeating the process.

My brother sent me another box filled with fabric memos!
This box has more cotton/linen fabric, which I think might be easier to use.

Halloween Crafts

Halloween is an opportunity to be really creative.
Judy Gold

One of my daughter-in-laws loves Halloween.
She is also very creative in sewing, and making purses and other crafts.
I have quite a few purses that she has made me. She knew I dressed for the seasons and holidays when I was teaching. One of the purses she made for me was a Halloween purse.
When I spoke with her the other day, she said she is already thinking of ways to decorate her house for Halloween.
I thought I would send her a few items to help her decorate.
I will be sending her a Halloween package in a few days.
The package will include the following:

Table Top

Sugar Skull Pin Cushion

Two Standard Size Pillowcases

Dresden Pillow

Fabric Pumpkin
I am thinking of looking for a decorative spider to add onto one of the web panels.
I looked at two tutorials for this fabric pumpkin:
Quill Cottage Studio  and Pink Suede Shoes

I have enough Halloween fabric to make some smaller pumpkins.
It’s time to go to Starbucks for some pumpkin spice latte and pumpkin bread!
