Pumpkin Patch

Greetings!
 
Yep, I've been busy.......I mean BUSY...........I'll even go so far as to say I'm a Farmer - just look at my crop.....
 
 
One of my favorite blogs is Wild Olive and when I saw the tutorial for these sweet, sweet pins - I just HAD to make a few.  It's kind of funny how crafting takes on a life of its own.......as I was cutting the fabric (mostly scraps from Cheryl - thanks Cheryl!!), I had NO idea the personalities of these little pumpkins would be popping out before too long!
 
 
Mr. Grumpy is for my favorite chef..............and nope, it's not a pin, it's a magnet (he's not the "sporting a pin" type of guy).
 



Little Ms. Raspberry goes to Gail - 'cause that's how she rolls..............

 
The Sweet Smiled pins will be going to Heidi, Dee and moiself.

 
Creepella immediately requested fangs "with just a couple of droplets of blood".......and the Oh-No pumpkin is just funny & expressive so she'll be hooked up with my sewing mentor, Cher.
 
 
Grumpy or not - this just makes me chuckle!!  They were so much fun to make and I can't direct you fast enough over to the Wild Olive blog.  She's so gracious with all that she shares - her tutorials are wonderful and if you're new to sewing/stitching you'll find success in any project she showcases. 
 
Currently I'm part of her Holiday SAL and I'm working on something that's TOP SECRET - all I can say is I'm delighted with how it's turning out and I have definitely caught the EPP bug!!
 
I've got a couple of days free from the daily grind so I'm hoping to have a couple more crafty posts before too long!!
 
Toodles for now...
 
P.S. thanks to Creepella for her excellent photography........she makes the crafty-ness look great!
