Isn't he cute?!?
Not one to be deterred from my new crush, I got on the Internet when I got home and found Pumpkin Pete there, lonely and looking for a home -- and at a much better price too - just $5! I really enjoyed stitching and quilting him up - don't you just love the 3D sunflower?
Now he is happy living here with us and enjoys greeting everyone who visits our home during the Fall season :*) We don't celebrate Halloween, but I do enjoy all the colors and fun of the Fall season! Smiling jack-o-lanterns are fun and happy. I also have this cute little wall hanging on my sewing studio wall. I had to take it at an odd angle because it is behind my design wall boards, so it looks a little crooked :*)
This was part of a series of small wall calendar hangings I did several years ago. The outer checkerboard is a holder with flannel in the center behind where the cat is. Each month I can remove the center "quilt" and stick a new one on the flannel, and the small blue border folds over the edges to keep it in place :*)
This little October quilt was done with a combination of applique and embroidery. You trace off the pattern, embroider on the lines, and then cut up the pieces of fabrics to fit inside the lines and fuse them in place. I really like the mosaic effect, don't you?

So as they say,
Happy Fall Ya'll!!!
No finishes but one really cute add....
I bought 2-1/2 yards of this - all they had on the bolt. Isn't it wonderful? I love the flurry of light, medium and dark blue dots on a creamy/white background. Can't you just see this as a background for a gorgeous Blue Christmas quilt? Yep, it got my creative radar bouncing around like crazy!!!
