As most of you who have kept up with my blog know, I have been in a craft funk lately. Well, I do believe that the funk is lifting. I spent all day Sunday working on signs and gameboards and today I decided to try making a stuffed fabric pumpkin! I have seen these on several blogs and with fall right around the corner, I decided to jump in and give it a try! Here's what I ended up with:
I am just tickled pink with how this turned out. And it was pretty easy to do, too! The picture doesn't do it justice and it doesn't really show all the detail of it. I put little wire trendils coming out of the stem and decided to put some moss around the top. I'm definitely gonna be making some more of these bad boys. Wouldn't a trio of different sizes in coordinating fabrics make a really cute centerpiece for a side table or dining room table? The possibilities are endless with this one!
I have also started crocheting an afghan for a swap I've signed up for. I'm doing it in a rusty orange color for fall. It's gonna be beautiful (I hope)! And I am working on a couple of things for my fall giveaway that will be coming up very soon. So be sure to check back for details on that.
And finally, I got these pics of the awesome goodies I won in Karen's July 4th giveaway over at The Barely There Primitive Bear. I love all these goodies and still have them all out on display. She also included some star shaped cookie cutters, an americana note pad that I have used the heck out of, and a fun little flag ring that I didn't get pics of. Karen outdid herself on this giveaway and I am so glad that I was her winner! Thanks Karen and I'm sorry I haven't been able to post these pics before now.
Well, I'm gonna jump off here and get some supper started. We are having breakfast for supper tonight. Someone at hubby's work place brought in a load of homegrown tomatoes yesterday and he snagged a couple of them. So tonight's menu is going to be sausage gravy, biscuits, scrambled eggs, sausage links and fresh sliced tomato! Yum! I'm hungry now!
Until next time. . .
