I loved this scene that my brother-in-law set up
outside their condo in Scottsdale, Arizona!
It's not looking so Halloweenish at our house right now - more like mid-January I'd say...
But, here's what I think -
This week, I liked finishing up my Hand-Pieced Pumpkins!
I have to share a couple more pictures because I just love this little project!
I hand quilted with ecru perle cotton, echoing most of the seams, and making some swirls around where I did the embroidery.
For the binding, I just brought the backing around to the front, did a little fancy folding, and stitched it with the perle cotton, too.
This was one of those little projects that was just pure enjoyment - a few stitches every evening for a month, and it all came together. Thanks, again, to Patty, at Elm Street Quilts, who inspired me to get started on the pumpkins!
I enjoyed this article by Tom Hanks that I found in the AARP magazine about friendship. I love Tom Hanks - looking forward to seeing his movie about Mr. Rogers!
And finally, on this day of Tricks and Treats, here is my favorite treat!
Hope you're having a great day! Join me and lots of friends at Not Afraid of Color for "I Like Thursday!"
Also sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday.
