Pumpkins Galore!!!

How often do we read on each others blogs about the generosity of fellow stitchers/quilters eh?? Well Wendy is no exception!!

When I set out my Autumn/Halloween display the other week (see earlier post), my lovely friend Wendy said that I should have some fabric pumpkins to go on my display. I had been planning on trying to make some myself, but time had not allowed of course! However, as Wendy is a bit of a whizz at making them, she offered to send me some of her pumpkins. Now, I thought that meant one, or maybe two. HELLO, look what the postie bought this morning just as I was dragging myself out of bed ...........



seven, YES 7 gorgeous pumpkins all made by Wendy’s fair hand!!



Aren’t they just something? I love everything about them; the cinnamon sticks, the moss with the leaves and the variety of colours in the fabrics. There is one baby pumpkin, five little ones and one BIG one – they are fabulous. And in honour of their arrival, I am going to leave my Autumn/Halloween display out now until Christmas before putting them away. I’ve told Wendy that I think she should go into business as a pumpkin maker – don’t you agree!!?

THANK YOU WENDY – you are a lovely friend.

Julia, I have become good friends with Wendy also and guess what she informs me is in the mail for me.....guess some pumpkins to sit in my kitchen box window with my roosters. Isn't she such a sweetheart, those pumpkins are incredible. Do you and Wendy live far apart?
hugs Deb

Seven is a lucky number and you were very lucky to receive such a lovely gift from your friend.
I love the pumpkins she made for you and don't blame you one bit for leaving them on display until you have to take them down for the Christmas stuff.Hugs,
