Our weather in the state of Washington has been extremely “un-summer like” and with temperatures today only reaching the mid to high 60’s, one can easily have thoughts of Fall “dancing in one’s head!” Such are my thoughts today, and so I find my table full of pumpkin shapes…..lots of them…..all waiting patiently to be transformed!!
Each wedge is traced out, hand cut, and stacked together in groups of 12....
... to be stitched in units of 2, and magically these units become an orb, (don’t you just love that word) that will be stuffed and stuffed and STUFFED, till it becomes………a Fabric Pumpkin!!
I love to make pumpkins and have enjoyed making them each fall, but this year, I saw a new pattern I just had to purchase and really am enjoying it!! It is by SweetMeadows Farms, and promises to be a new favorite of mine!!
It has several different styles of pumpkins and offers lots of stem options!! I chose the small curled stem and love the whimsical look!!
I highly recommend this pattern if you are looking for a different twist on an old favorite!! My thanks to Maureen for a fun and amazing pattern!!

As you contemplate your day, and all that you want to accomplish, let me leave you with this sweet and simple thought………..
Each morning see some task begin,
Each evening sees it close;
Something attempted, something done,
Has earned a nights repose. ~ Longfellow (The Village Blacksmith).
Wishing you a most Sweet Repose, my friends~~
