woohooo! Sparkly Pumpkins are done!

the sparkly pumpkins are finally done! yea!!! they were due Oct 1 but I have been very busy with working a full time job and 2 part time jobs. Things have eased up a little and I got to work on these all day today. great rainy day project! I will get them out to the new owners on Monday. had a blast making these. the pumpkin and crow pattern came out of an old McCalls Quick quilts mag. I zig zagged the edges, use gold glittery tulip paint for sparkle and silk leaves for a 3-D look. Click on picture to see better details. The jack-o pattern is out of the lastest Fons and Porter magazine. I used 2 different size buttons for the eyes. pieces were fused and zig-zagged. I added a ceramic fall color leaf to each style. in my online exchange group of 12 (there are now more in the group, all from the pickle posse) 1/2 wanted fall, other half, included myself wanted halloween. this group is park of the sparkly chicken group from last summer.

I have recieved 5 blocks so far in the exchange, I will post pics when I get more. I had fun making these blocks, great diversion from training on new job and working other jobs inbetween. I wanted to stamp a dingbat on them as well but I couldnt find my stamp or the stamp pad....grrrrr dont you hate that?
Keep On Stitch'n On!
