I accidentally followed a prompt! I made this pumpkin with aqua plaid paper I had on hand. Heck it even has a brown, kraft paper stem... also stash! Lights are also stash. YEY!

I know most people associate pumpkins with Halloween, but my Halloween style is way too gross for such charming fruits! So I like to use pumpkin icons and imagery for Thanksgiving. I made this aqua plaid paper pumpkin to decorate our aqua and purple bathroom for the season.

I got the files from svgcuts.com.

It got a little tricky doing all the folds & gluing the body together, but it came together.

Joyfulclover and I decided to swap some TM patches. You know, we've been 10,  give or take, TM patch swaps and have never been partners! We decided it was time. We both appreciate some snark and the antics of the Belcher family so we decided to use this as our theme for our swap.

And she nailed it.

But I am not surprised. I have never seen anything that Joyful has made that has not been thoughtful and well made. You can tell she takes all aspects of her swap projects into consideration, paying special attention to her partners interests.

Bob Belcher and the family. Iconic.

The girls were getting make-overs. This was Louise's version. Nightmares. THE best.

Close up of Joyfulclovers handiwork. The needlework (stumpwork?) on both of the Bob's Burgers patches blow me away but the details on this one is stunning.

The snark patch. Not gonna lie. This quote is me, to a T.  I wanna sew this on a jacket.

Thanks so much JC for swapping with me!

OMG completely forgot we got our first snow last night.  It's a couple weeks early and was hard to get because it was night time, but the flakes were nice and large.  I'm sure a lot of kids were disappointed when they woke up this morning because it was already gone.

We have a sculpture park that I used to visit all the time in high school, but I hadn't been there in a while.  These two installations are new to me.  They do have other works that aren't giant things, but that's all I took pictures of on our quick stop.

Even though Orenji begged to help grout I wouldn't allow it.  That stuff gets everywhere!

I sold raffle tickets for my quilt guild's fundraiser, and Orenji made a new friend.

I started my seasonal job at Mother Earth Pillows sewing pillows and covers.

My friend Kevin came to our guild meeting and did a presentation.  These two got along just fine.

After voting we found this tree in a hallway.  I'm still not sure if it's cute or creepy.

I met some friends for a long lunch on Sunday, and we went to a Syrian restaurant that opened this year.  It was so good and I was so hungry that I completely blanked on getting a photo with my food, but here's one of Orenji and my empty tea pot and cup.  Roll Eyes

Last but not least, this week I had a consultation and prep work for getting my teeth fixed!  My Invisalign trays should be here at the beginning of December.

Here is a card by Mountains and Clouds for my "Unloved Creatures" theme:

This cute little cockroach (yeah I said it) looks to be paint and ink, though when I first opened it I thought it might be pastels. Great colors either way.

M&C says she doesn't mind cockroaches, with the cute little sounds they make. I'm so glad to find like-minded people on here.  Grin

Oh yes - this would work for mini tart tins, altoid tins too - those are on my to do lists too!

I received from Lindyv321 - the red snowflake sled... and I love it... and as I am looking at it, I also realize Dollar Tree has jumbo ornaments and I could marry her sled to a jumbo ornament and make a big ornament diorama!  That I could hang in my bay window!!!!

November Themes

Plaid - orange by TwoPointsCouture, on Flickr

Color: Brown
Pattern: Plaid
For: Charity
Challenge 1:  Host a crafternoon with friends.  Its a great way to make gifts in bulk ahead of the holiday season.  And fresh eyes looking at your stash may find new ways to use materials that would never occur to you.
Challenge 2: Make more than one of something.  If you've already got the supplies out, it might be nice to make a batch, some to keep, some to give away.
