Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop!

Pumpkin, pumpkin! 
Who's got the pumpkin?
We all do!
Every single one of the blogs on this hop has pumpkin projects to share.
Hosted by Carla from Creatin' In The Sticks, a 4-day line-up of bloggers are all spiced up to show you their creations! Follow along and have fun!

My project was almost not a project at all! My sewing machine literally had a break down before I could start. She had to be serviced and that meant a 2 hour trip to the repair shop and a 2 week wait! 
I was not a happy pumpkin!

So I opted for a small project. One that I could use on a side table in our sitting room where we read. 

Starting off with strips of orange from my stash with 
random lengths and widths,
 I sewed them together. 

I sewed enough to make a wonky-shaped pumpkin. 

Picture-taking here was not a priority, so you will need a good imagination!

Low volume strips were added to make a square. 
Loop-de-loop FMQ came next.

Fabrics were auditioned for the binding. (I chose the lower right one.)

With the addition of a stem and leaves that were hand-stitched on, 
I am really quite pleased with the final product!
The leaves add a dimensional touch!

My table topper measures 17" x 16" and will sit pretty until I get into the Christmas mood!

Thanks for stopping by!

Join the rest of the blog hop to see what my friends are up to!

Welcome To My House Blog Hop!

Welcome "home" to where Hazel's Daughter hangs out!

I am once again honored to be a part of a blog hop hosted by 
Carol from Just Let Me Quilt

This blog hop is the place to be to find awesome projects to create and every single one of them has at least one house on it! *Some have even a few more!

My idea came to me while searching through Pinterest. 
Do you ever go there looking for one thing and before you  know it, 
you've lost a good hour of your life? Yep, it happens often here!

So, I found a quilted house block that appealed to me,
 but it lead to no site for a tutorial.
 It was a dead end. Bah.
I played around and figured it out myself.

It was pretty easy....and pretty addictive! 
I had no idea where this was going, 
but I figured I'd need a few neighborhood's worth of house blocks.

I sewed them into "streets" of houses, every one of them unique and colorful!

I also machine embroidered a warm "Welcome" panel 
with some hand-stitching and beads.

I had several chances to practice my French Knot skills. 

In the end, I have a wonderful new wall-hanging to display in my foyer!

I kinda love it!

Please visit the other talented bloggers on this hop 
as they share their awesome house projects!
