"Great" Little Pumpkins!

You still have time to enter my double giveaway on my last post.  Just leave a comment on that post and I'll draw 2 names on Friday morning - good luck.

I hosted a little sewing day last week and we made these cute little wool pumpkins.


From the left is Pauline's (love the white pumpkin!), then mine (which I enlarged slightly) and Susan's.

Nothing I love more than a table full of sewing supplies -


The Pattern came from the bo0k, Pumpkin Patch, that I won on Kelly's blog, Pinkadot Quilts.  She always has something fun going on there!


Here is a close up of Susan's.


Of course we made a little time for lunch and a slice of green apple pie.  I love to bake apple pie because it makes the whole house smell good this time of year.


Here are the 2 that I completed.


I have added a tab under my header for a free pattern of the coffin needle book.  It is about the same size as the pattern I drafted, but it changed slightly when we added it to blogger.

You can print it and make it any size you wish, or I can send you a pdf file by email.

I'd love to see photos if you make one these fun needle books.

  10. Looking at the first picture, I thought the pumpkins were small. I see in further down pictures that they are good bit bigger than I first thought. The stitches are so well done. I don't know if I could do so well. What a fun day it must have been.

  24. The pumpkins are so cute but what really has me drooling is the plate the pie is on! Can you post a picture of the dish? I have the blue Currier and Ives dishes and never saw brown dishes like this one. The plate has me intrigued...
