I love fall because...PUMPKINS!  I love pumpkin everything so I joined the swap of the same name!  My partner, bywilma said in her questionnaire that she liked crochet items because she herself does not crochet.

I found this tutorial and decided to give it a try.  I had yarn in my stash that was a little more rust in color that I thought would be perfect.  The pattern uses a bobble stitch that took forever!  I had no idea how large the pumpkin was going to be! ha ha

Anyway, I ended up dyeing the filling brown because I am just not good at very tight crochet stitches.  That in itself was a project!  My hands, towels, and sink turned out brown as well...

After I did the big pumpkin, I decided he needed some friends...I made these little guys just crocheting round and round until I got a tube.  I think there are some tutorials on this one, but I just figured it out from the pictures.

Here is a way better picture taken by my partner...

I have so much  of the yarn left over that I am going to make a few more of the little ones to give to friends!  Plus, all that brown stuffing... Grin.

Thanks for looking!

... and also a sweet little pumpkin, when mood allows Cheesy

... just having fun, with Halloween coming. A great way to lighten the mood and she is so tolerant of my antics and outfits, so she really doesn't leave me a choice and have to make them, lol.

Yay, I received! And I got spoiled by Alwaysinmyroom! Here are all the goodies:

First I got these really beautiful crocheted pumpkins. They are so cute and well made! I love the curly fines on them (is that how you call those?)

I also got this ornament with the cutest pumpkin fabric and the words 'everything pumpkin' embroidered on two of the pumpkins.

I absolutely love these gift tags and my son already claimed some of the pencils. They are now magic wands and he turns everyone into monsters. Cheesy

If I say I got spoiled, I really mean I got spoiled! This small quilted table cloth is made with the most beautiful pumpkin fabric!

And last but not least I got these delicious threats. I never knew I would like roasted pumpkin seeds. I promise I will not trow them away the next time I make something with pumpkin.  Grin

Thank you so much Alwaysinmyroom! I feel so spoiled!

One option, use a glass glue to stick coloured glass pebbles in place-this is hiding a crack

Or use glass paints with a black liner, difficult to be really precise

And they can fade. They are cheap paints and this one got more direct sun. It's only a year old

I was paired with MissingWillow in a  Mod Love Swap. Here are the things I made for her:

Two little crochet pumpkins:

A pair of fingerless gloves.  These are so soft but very strong.  Made of baby alpaca and acrylic.

A little owl ornament.  I love these crochet frames...they fit anything and work up quickly.

I also made her a Political hoop.  You can check it out in my gallery.  Just a warning...I am not a fan of our current president.

She's a narrowboat, called Florence Smiley

Does anyone know anything about working with stained glass? There are two small windows in the stable doors at the bow, and Tom asked me if I could make some stained glass windows for them, but to be honest I don't know where to start!

Edel - I did some oversize pointalism (sp??) in paintshop at university, we used cotton buds. That worked pretty well and was fun Smiley

And a project I forget to include in the previous dump...

Challenge: head's challenge September
House: ravenclaw
Project: blacking the hull
Before you can start a narrow boat journey, you have to make sure the boat is protected from water damage by blacking the hull. Here I am mixing the 2-part paint for Florence'a second coat!

So glad you like it greybird! And the envelope is made from a gelli print I received from Audio earlier this year. I'm sure she would remember how she made them!

I received a Halloween ATC from mariak today!!!

Love all the different elements she incorporated! I especially love the sweet little Jack-o-Lantern! The "yellow" dots are actually a metallic gold. Thanks so much Maria!!!!
