My pumpkin patch

Monday night football consumes our house, per Doug. Monday night football also cuts into my desire to watch Dancing with the Stars {unless I watch it back in our bedroom which means I fall asleep half way through and miss my favorite dancers...never fails!}. So, the past few weeks I've headed over to Carrie's house on Monday nights. We have take-out Chinese food and watch DWTS together while Doug is at home doing his guy-thing.

Last night we decided to craft together while our show was on and it was so much fun, although in the process we forgot to really watch the dancers. We became so wrapped up on making these little pumpkins that DWTS was nothing more than background noise.

Ugh! Gotta' watch out for wild animals
during a photo shoot in my craft room!
Carrie found the tutorial for these cute little guys here. I changed it up a little and used bows on top instead of stems.

~sigh~
Don't you just love a good pumpkin?

very cool! I sometimes wish we "did" halloween in Australia, just so I can make cute stuff!

Sian said...

Very, very cute indeed! Over here, pumpkins have only become popular very recently - the traditional way here is to make a turnip lantern.

humel said...

Well now, these are rather gorgeous :-) And what a great excuse for some quality time with Carrie! xx

PS I've answered a couple of your questions within the comments on my blog - but yes, Billy is the name of an Ikea bookcase range, and the only biscuits I know are what you'd call cookies, never come across a bread-like version that you'd have gravy with!

Oh I do adore pumpkins. These are delightful, so fun. I have also seen some made in velvet, can't remember where though.
What a great way to spend an evening.

Rhona said...

Those pumpkins are just so cute!! What a wonderful way to spend the evening with Carrie - unfortunately, neither of my girls are that bothered about crafts at the moment xx

Lizzie said...

Sooo Cuuuute... I love them! They're like the old-fashioned tomato-shaped pin-cushions we used to have when I was a kid... but so much nicer. I really like what you've done with the bows on top, to replace stems - they look like stems and leaves, but so pretty.
Lovely Pumpkin Patch - well done you!
(off to view Carrie's Patch now!)
