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!
