Pumpkin Patch

 The autumn season is inspiring a lot of my makes this year..........here is a pink pumpkin autumn coaster made with the lovely lecien flower sugar charm pack i showed here last time...........
 .............as well as this little applique pumpkin project i have made another squashy fabric pumpkin to add to the harvest.............
 ...............the garden is full of tiny toadstools and mushrooms as well as autumn flowers and berries to inspire and to enjoy in this pretty vintage jam jar in the house.............
 ............the berries are so plentiful here that people are predicting a hard winter.......
 ...............i've always loved autumn walks and finding acorns and conkers....and i still do...it is fun to crunch through the autumn leaves with my grandchildren now as they find the same treasures too....
 ..............the garden is also full of spider's webs....i found one thin line of spider web stretched across a narrow path from one plant to another, and with a golden leaf caught on it like a little washing line....how does that happen?.......the wonders of nature.............
 ...............sewing lots of small projects with nature's colours....above is a newly opened charm pack of bonnie and camille basics..........and below is the pumpkin pillow i made for my book *modern vintage gifts*..........
 ..............each day i explore the garden to see what treasures there are............
 ..............just like the school nature table i loved as a child, i like to spread out the finds and examine the different flowers and berries, seeds and fruits..........
 ...........my finishing of works in progress is continuing and i am pleased to say that the million ends on the v stitch crochet blanket have now all been sewn in and i am on to the border :).......
 .............the border is a simple one repeating the stripe colour order but in double crochet.......
 ..........and at the top some little tulips appeared all by themselves :) ......
..............thank you for dropping by dear readers and for your kind comments.........it is lovely to see old friends and new here and i do appreciate hearing from you ..........wishing you a wonderful week ahead with happy days and cosy nights and lots of crafty inspirations..................back soon xxxxxxxx

Your sewing is always so beautiful. I look at the adorable things you make and feel nostalgic, for I used to make so many things. But arthritis in my hands keeps me from jumping back into it.

Helen,
Love the sweet v stitch blanket, and so awesome how the tulips popped out by themselves. Speaking of spider webs, we had a beautiful "Charlotte's Web" appear on my husband's truck between the antenna and the windshield with sparkling drops of dew making it look like a beautiful piece of handmade lace. Nature is certainly amazing.
Thank you for sharing your many creations.

I love how your pumpkin things are done in soft floral patterns, not really fall colors. That just really speaks to me right now, it's very sweet.
