The Elegant Pumpkin Patch


The first thing I must do is give credit where credit is due. I first found these pumpkins on the site, http://eoberrys.blogspot.com/. Who then gave credit to http://bloggingwithholly.blogspot.com/ ,who gives a tutorial on these pumpkins on her August 17, 2008 post. Thanks girls!!!
Now, you know me...there's always a story. So let's get on with it. I show these pumpkins to a couple of my friends, who go crazy and jump on the wagon. Then the next day my daughter, Emily, calls and says, "whatcha doin'?" Then she goes crazy and makes two for herself (the two photographed at the end of this post). So what you see here is a collection of pumpkins made by all four of us gals. What fun!!!




Happy Fall!!

I love it! They all have their own little look just like real pumpkins. Thats neat that your friends joined in too. It makes it all the more fun. I must say I was touched by your post with your Mom. She is one beautiful lady and so blessed to have a daughter like you. My mom and dad live far away... I miss them~ Take care and thank you for the sweet comment

Hi
I am so glad you left a comment so that I could come and visit you. Those pumpkins you made are really cute and they look great all arranged on the mantle. I might just have to coy you and make some of my own.
Thanks for leaving a comment.
Hugs, Rhondi

Those are so so cute. I wish I could sew!! I wonder if there is a way for me to do that without sewing...fabric glue or a glue gun? I am going to think about it! :)

Those pumpkins are so darling. I love your choice of fabrics. I'm going to be making some as soon as we finish up the sprinkler system in the front yard. Mimi

I am getting together with a friend on Thursday to make some of our own pumpkins! I'm so excited. I'm not a great sewer so I'm hoping I'm able to be successful!

Oh my goodness, how cute are those? I just love them so very much. They actually took my breath away when I first came onto your blog! So wonderful!
My Mom and I have been crafting together since I owned a floral shop when I was 20 years old. The sad thing is we live 300 miles apart now!
I love being a Mom too and adore being a grandma. I'm so happy you stopped by my blog-I am putting you on my Google Reader!
Take Care,
Robin
