The first day of school, I spent the day doing laundry and cleaning after being away but yesterday I spent the day sewing and working on my Etsy shop. I finished up various pumpkins. I have been working on two styles. One set of pumpkins is more primitive, using beautiful hand dyed wool with hand embroidered flowers and the other set is more quirky! When I finished and photographed the quirky ones, I realized they reminded me of Wallace and Grommet, I think it's the teeth!!
Some of these pumpkins have been added to my Etsy shop and you can see them here. The rest I am keeping for my booth at the Quilt Show which is coming up next month. I can't believe how much Fall stuff is in the shops. Our local Hobby Lobby store (a big craft supply store) is full of Fall and Christmas items. I tend not to stock a lot of seasonal things in my Etsy shop because I don't really want any left over. I love pumpkins though so I thought I would make these and I expect I will make a few Christmas ornaments too. This will be my second Christmas on Etsy. Last year I was new and didn't really know what to expect. This year I will be more prepared!
I am very happy with how these pumpkins turned out. I enjoyed picking out combinations of wool fabric and flower colors.
