Pumpkins 2012

We started carving our pumpkins Thursday night..we only got about 12 done as a family and my husband and I did the rest yesterday ..The three stacked pumkins sit on the porch by the front door. I have done a pumpkin topiary for the past three years..The bottom pumpkin is the one from my last post that we put the baby in for his photos.. I use Christmas lights for the pumpkins , no candles.Just plug them in :)

here they are all lined up.. we carved 26 pumpkins all together

Pumpkins and Daisies

Yesterday , I made this little pumpkin hat for the pumpkin is the pattern...

Isn't he adorable ! We have big plans for this hat this week.. Hope it works out like we are planning !

My daughter is going to a baby shower , so I told her I would make her a blanket.. I used a pattern from this site to make the squares... I have made a daisy blanket before using a different pattern and it was much more time consuming ! This pattern is EASY ! Took me 2 days to make all the squares , I am just putting the last couple rows together ( join as you go )and then a border.

Hope you have a great week ! As always thank you for visiting and your nice comments !
I will be linking to these parties:

I made the Fall sign from one of my old craft show display shelves

 The kitchen with a few Halloween displays , and the subway art table runner I made, on the kitchen table

The sweater pumpkins I made from sweaters from the Good Will store

Our family room with the mantel decorated for Halloween.

Fabric ghost ( I made) on a ceramic cake plate

Fall subway art IU made from another one of the display shelves , Prairie schooler cross stitch ( withches go riding) and more sweater pumpkins

I have been working on this cross stitch project ..pumpkin cottage from country cottage needleworks..Just the borders to finish. Hope to finish it and frame before the Christmas stuff comes out ! :)

Ive also been working on this granny square blanket using scraps.. Just 3 rounds and a join together as you go

Our visit to Kentucky was great ..enjoyed seeing our boy.. was so hard to leave him again. He is very homesick !

This is his roomate and we went to dinner with  his family, was nice to meet them.

We went to the game on Saturday , then left for the 6-1/2 hour drive home.We had to get more UK gear  for the fans back home!
 I did get to stop on the way down and the way back at a Christmas tree shop.. we don't have them up here ,so I was so excited to get to go.  We stopped on the way back to get a metal yard snowman that I hadn't gotten the first visit ! Wish we had one closer to home ! Thanks for visiting my blog and all your nice comments !
