Three Little Pumpkins

Three little pumpkins sitting on a gate -
The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late."
The second one said, "I'm ready for some fun."
The third one said, "Lets run and run and run!"
AHH-WHOOOOOoooooo went the wind
And OUT went the lights
And the three little pumpkins rolled out of sight

(I'm not sure who the author is, but this is a fun little song that my kids liked to sing when they were little.)

These fantabulous goodies came from my swap partner, Tammy. We participated in Heidi's Homemade Halloween Swap and I was so lucky to receive Tammy as a partner. The homemade candy corn scented candle and lotion are incredible. Mmmm....better than the real thing for sure and I don't get sugar stuck in my teeth! Head on over to Tammy's blog to take a peek at the beautiful quilts that she makes. Wonderful!

Tammy got a sweet wool felt pillow from me, and my rocking chair is sporting a new one as well. I love working with wool, so easy and forgiving.

A few of my fall time pictures made a set of perfect autumn note cards. It was really fun smearing ink onto the paper cards, cutting the photo's into fun shapes and then sewing the pictures to the cards using my machine. I did some decorative stitches around the edges and love how they turned out. Too fun!
Have you gotten some spooky craftiness done this year?

No halloween craftiness here but I did finish a Christmas motif tabletopper last night so I now have three completed. Gonna donate two of them to the Fall Bazaar next Saturday at our church and hopefully, they will sell for a decent price.
Loved the pillow and especially the cards you made! You are so creative, wish I had a dabble of genes like that!

Wow- what a wonderful swap, Miss Paula! Lots of wonderful goodies for both of you... I love your pillow- you did a wonderful job on it!

Mary said...

Paula, It looks like the swap was a huge success. Love all the crafty things you received and the pillow is delightful.

You did a great job on the cards. I like the one with your kitty peeking out from between the leaves.

I plan on doing a Christmas book swap again this year. Let me know what you think.

No I have not got anything craft done for ages! I need to make some aprons though. And soon. My favorite is falling apart!

I am, however, back to writing letters again. I love getting non-bill and/or junk mail. Don't you? So I try and write at least one letter every day or so.
