Moons and Pumpkins

Bat Moon Rising is coming along. I’m using an ombre fabric for the background, which means more fussing with placement of the fabric.

I’ve started with light background around the moon and will work into the darker fabric as I move away from the moon. This is a Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern from the Mini Wonderful Curves book.

Happy Little Things: Block 4 embroidery is all stitched up. I’ll be using the fabrics shown for piecing the block.

I didn’t think I got much hand work done this week, but when I pulled out Happy Little Things last night, I only had a little bit of stitching to complete the design. Plus, since I took a road trip last Friday, which included stopping at a new-to-me quilt shop, I bought larger embroidery needles that worked well with the Perle Cotton.

With Thanksgiving in the USA just around the corner, I’m dreaming of making these cute pumpkin rolls for dinner – and use them as part of the table decorations.  Or this version. Maybe both, since I have some vegans in the family.

    Good Morning! Those pumpkin rolls are so darn cute. They really will be an eatable decoration. I’m in charge of pies which I bring to my sister’s house. I am tempted to make some of these as well, just for fun – thanks for sharing the link. Bat Moon is coming along nicely considering you just started it! I see several friends who are doing hand embroidery in the evenings, and it makes me want to start a project. It’s surprising how much you can get accomplished when you work at a project just a little each night. Thanks for linking up! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Looks like you’ve gotten a good start on the quilting and on the new baby quilt. Hopefully this week has been kind in the time to stitch department.
