Way down yonder in the pumpkin patch

Yup.....that's where I've been, busily sewing pumpkins. I must say, I've gotten very proficient at machine buttonhole applique. No curve or point is too challenging for me....lol I was beginning to feel like Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear. It's not a great one but 42 little pumpkins that I'm very happy to report are finished. They need to be pressed and trimmed and sent off to the swapping headquarters.





Yesterday, while I was ripping off all the stabilizer....don't you just hate that part....this little guy stayed on the window. Guess he was enjoying the company. It was such a lovely day.
