Pick A Pumpkin Hop


Harvest Fun

I would like to thank CARLA for organizing this fun Hop and I hope you are enjoying some wonderful inspiration from these very talented people.  Today's hosts are:


I don't do a lot of seasonal projects, but I backtracked thru some of my prior years' posts to find a few items. 


I used my TUTORIAL FOUND HERE  to make a wicked tissue cover. 



"Barbed Wire" was one of my Let's Book It projects years ago.

 

I haven't done much cross stitching this year, but this project made for a lovely seasonal gift a few years ago.


Another Let's Book It project where I changed up a table runner pattern into a wallhanging.  Let's Book It was a program I hosted 2014-16 to challenge quilters to pull out those many books, patterns, and magazines we collect - AND use them.


For this hop I relied on my usual - use up the scraps - mode to challenge myself.  This left over bit of what appeared to be a cut off from someone else's project was my inspiration.  I got the seam ripper out and took those scraps apart.  


I used the Raven pattern from Regina Grewe's free pattern listing.  I've made this before many years ago, so it was fun to revisit him.  I used every bit of that lite background - even having to piece in a section so I had enough.  


The other bits that were used came from my tote of strings and left over binding was just enough.  That pumpkin/raven print was perfect for a border on this little piece that finished at 9.5" square - I got my miniature on!

Please be sure to visit the other hosts today and share some love with Carla as well.  Thank you for stopping by,

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. Love the recap of past projects. Love the tissue box cover. I'm thinking some of my left over Ghastlies would look great in that pattern. I'm also crazy about the raven.

  11. It's great to see that you could use up scraps from another project and make something special for today's hop! I enjoyed the time that Book It! ran and even without it you're still nudging me -- I have that same Jan Patek BOM sitting in my stash waiting to come around to the forefront again!

  27. Sharon - I'm just getting around to looking at the Pumpkin Blog Hop of Carla's. She has some of the best hops. You have some wonderful projects, as always. I adore the grapes in the cross stitch. I'm getting an eye exam at the end of the month and hope to be able to see to cross stitch again. All your projects are amazing. I love that you got your minature on. Your rock, girl!
