These are pumpkins and some overgrown zuchinni that my hubby grew in his garden for our porch display. He hopes one day to grow the 'big' one! LOL

Tablemat for Thanksgiving

Here is a tablemat I made from some precut pieces that had fusible on them. I got them at a garage sale. I made this for my Mother in law as she always has Thanksgiving at her house. The leaf fabric is flannel and soft. I used some glitter paints too.

swap stuff I recieved

Here are two pins made from my friend Judy  in Australia. Aren't they great!!
This is the jester pin I made for Judy. This was our second swap. The lady pin  is from our first swap when I made the mermaid.
This is my finished round robin doll that I just got back. Isn't she wonderful!!! I just love her head piece and those sleeves! Cherie and Wanda worked on her. I tried to find the picture of the blank doll I sent but don't know where it went!
This is a picture of all the stuff I sent for my FRIENDS swap hosted by Khris. My partner was Leonie. I had lots of fun making and buying the things for her.

Black cat fron Kat Lee's class

This is a fabric cat I made. It is part of a class on making a  Halloween coach, witch and cat by Kat Lees. It called for plastic spiders but I had a beaded one I had made on hand so used that one for on the tail!
He has a collar with Halloween charms.

Christmas quilt

I made this top and haven't quilted it yet. It is for Amanda's October Challenge. I made it from a Moda jelly roll called Candylane Christmas. It is a pretty easy pattern but looks really nice.
A close up of the fabric.....

These are really fun! I love doing them at night.

Shading with the pencil really makes them 3d!
