Tis The Season

for pumpkins. I love them. They are everywhere. I found this pattern the other day on Gazette94. So many great ideas and designs on that blog. I saw this and I knew I had to stitch it right away.

it's really a little sweet pumpkin.


Work has been great. The past couple of days I have been waking up earlier and feeling so much better, and that needle is back in my fingers "look out world". Thank God, I have been in a creative funk for a long time but I think it has passed. I realize I just have to STAY OFF FACEBOOK. LOL Oh my goodness that is a time suck. Then I wonder why I dont have time to make all the things I want to make and I have lots of plans. I am so hooked on that Treasure Island. First it was fishville! Good Grief, I need to stop.
This past week was my husband's birthday, we didn't celebrate it yet, we are going to celebrate tomorrow. (Saturday) which just happens to be my granddaughter Tori's birthday. We are having a barbecue since the weather is still so nice and having friends and family over. It should be lots of fun. Tori is so excited that she is going to be 7. Oh to be 7 again. I walked through the toy department at Walmart and I swear I was taken back in time. What fun. I was a big time Barbie Girl. Really if you loved Barbie as a child, you need to check out the Barbie Aisles. They have all new stuff, all new fashions, more handsome looks to Ken. A swimming dog, OMG I couldn't stop oohing and ahhhing. Finally my daughter had to come search for me and drag me out of the Barbie Aisle. My granddaughter likes Barbies but not like I did, she likes a different type of fashion doll. From Monster High, some new show that they have dolls that look like barbies but are supposed to be a little scary. LOL One of the gifts I got her is a set of dolls from Monster High. Will take a picture of them tomorrow to share, they are a hoot. The girl is named Cleo De Nile daughter of the Mummy and the boy is Deuce Gordon Son of medusa. They are like KEWL monster teens. I know she is going to be thrilled with them, she has one already named DracuLaura. They actually just looked like teen dolls dressed up for Halloween. Crazy!!
I have no plans for Sunday except for maybe some more stitching and maybe taking a nice ride through our area to enjoy the leaves changing colors. They are just so pretty and I love taking pictures of them. I will be back soon. Thank you for being patient with me.
Have a good night everybody.
Love to all, Sharon xoxo

How adorable is that?! I love your pumpkin! Glad work has been going well. As for Facebook -- I don't do Facebook except that I have an identity there. lol!

I LOVE your pumpkin!! That is so adorable. You whipped that out in no time! YGG!

Yeah, FB is a time suck! I normally just check it when on my iPhone, so don't get too involved with it. I never got into the games because I'd rather be stitching or quilting.

Happy birthday to Ray and Tori! I've never heard of those dolls before. I have a 7 yr old niece; maybe it's something she'd like for Christmas...

Happy to read a new post. LOVE that pumpkin and printed out the chart. Do you recall your color choices?

Happy Birthday to Ray and Tori!

Cute pumpkin! I'm currently stitching up the 1st of 3 of that design...but not as pumpkins. I changed the colors to red and green and am making little Christmas ornaments for the kiddos' teachers. Might as well get then done now instead of waiting until I'm all stressed out battling final exams in December!
