A pumpkin finish & two WIP pictures





after our wonderful time at the pumpkin patch last week (see previous 2 posts), I knew I had to do more pumpkin related stitching.
I saw this adorable pumpkin finished on Beth's blog. Sorry, I don't know how to do the link thing!!! Her blog is in my list thou....check it out!
It is an older SanMan pattern called Did someone say pie?? Just adorable. I love making different foods with pumpkin, so I have LOTS of pumpkin recipes. I am going to try a pumpkin chili tomorrow.
I used the finish piece to make another of my albums. This one will hold ALL of my pumpkin recipes in one place.......easy to find them this way!
The two WIP pieces have been neglected since before the boys visit last week, but they will be front & center now for the weekend for sure.
One is Amish Rules by Heart in Hand. The other is out of an OLD magazine. I was sorting magazines & saw this on the cover & knew I had to stitch it!!! (see post a few weeks ago for the details)
It finally cooled off enough that we had to break down & turn the heat on. I try to wait as long as possible.....love that time between air conditioner & heater....how much $$$$ it saves!!
Have a wonderful weekend.....it will be Nov. real soon......

The pumpkin finish is adorable. Can't wait to see more of the WIP's I like pumpkin recipes too only prefer it when everyone else makes them! Or I can buy from the store.

I just love this SMO! I think he's my favorite of all of Sandy's designs! Awesome finish!

Your pumpkin looks so cute! The fabric you used to cover your recipe album is just perfect with this piece.

Good luck with your WIP's. I'm hoping to finish some up this weekend as well.

I just love that worried little pumpkin, Shari...He actually looks like he's shaking because he fears being made into a pie. Too cute! And your recipe book is a great idea--I love pumpkin foods, too.

I'm also stitching pumpkins at the moment, and last weekend I had my first pumpkin cream soup. It was sooooo good!
We turned our heating on long ago, back in September already as it has been just too cold to sit in the house and feel comfortable without the heating on.

I love San Man designs Shari. This little guy is adorable. Your backing fabric looks great.

I can't wait to see your WIPs. You're always so good at finishing your projects quickly.

Pumpkin chili sounds good...especially with the colder weather.
Sent you an email :)
