2nd Installment of: The Elegant Pumpkin Patch

Well, I finally finished my complete collection. Some of the other pumpkins were just on loan (for the first photo shoot) from my friends and daughter. I was only going to make six, but then I just had to see what one more fabric choice would look like as a pumpkin.
Not sure if you can see it or not, but the small red pumpkin has some pretty gold stitching on it that my sweet friend, Margie, did with her fancy Viking machine. Thanks cutie!

And last but not least, I had to show off my new cloche that I got on clearance (just like the rest of you) from Michael's. I already had the nest with the eggs, so I just had to add the little bird. For now I put the cloche on top of a cake pedestal. Hope you'll try these pumpkins and have as much fun as we did. : )

Forgive me for posting again. I just read your profile and I'm telling you, judging by your picture, there is no way you can be old enough to have a married daughter. You go girl!

You do look mighty young. How old were you when you had her 5? Anyway, I'm hoping to get to making some pumpkins this week because I sure love them. I'll post them when I do...Mimi
