Sewing and Harvesting!

Look at this! I bought this piece in a moment of joy from Jude Hill of Spiritcloth and it has arrived from the U.S. in the post. It is now probably one of my most treasured possessions (apart from my children and I definitely don't own them). It's so soft, being made from washed and worn fabrics, and is all handsewn. I have got a bit of an obsession with pumpkins so this fits in totally with our household decorations at this time of year!

Meanwhile I had started my own version for inclusion in my very slowcloth of moon patches..
More bounty...


Posted by PicasaMy inlaws have just been on a fabulous trip to India and brought me back some colourful goodies...tomatoes from my greenhouse...

...oh yes and a bit more pumpkiness in a sketch with a black background of acrylic paint - may experiment with this further methinks....

  2. That pumpkin quilt is sooooo adorable. I too have a thing for pumpkins. I am presently gathering fabrics and patterns to make the great pumpkin quilt but my own way. The pattern is $45.00 and that is just way too much money.
    Would you mind if I made a little pumpkin quilt like yours??
