I've spent the better part of the last six days dealing with pumpkins in one form or another. I'm finally finished with the first round of smaller sewn pumpkins to go with the larger one I made on the 24th of September. The pumpkins themselves are very quick to put together. The time consuming bit is the hand work on the leaves but I love the effect.
These are the ones I'm keeping for myself so I have an autumn centerpiece.
These are the ones I'm donating to the guild (in a pretty basket once I find one) to have for the silent auction next month.I still have a few more little ones to make so the basket and bowl will be nicely filled. But for the moment I'm done so I can move on to some other projects. I will pick these back up when the quilter's group meets this month and we're all making pumpkins.
Monday I spent the day in the kitchen. Two pumpkin cake rolls with maple cream cheese filling and two loaves of pumpkin spice bread were the result.
This is all the guild left me on the two cake rolls.
One loaf to enjoy now, and another in the freezer.
Life is pumpkin-filled goodness right now. Catch you all later!
