let's sing some pumpkin carols....

 Two little flat pumpkin pins made of painted fabric
 and using a rolled fabric stem and a twig from the yard
 no doubt a bougainvillea clipping,
 now i use repurposed chopsticks  parts,
 stained a brown color for stems.

 made from halloween fabric
  mini pants 
 to dance in if you are a tiny dancer!
We had an etch and sketch feature on our first computer 
so i made this greeting inspired by
Charlie Brown's  seasonal cartoon 
 where he searches for the most sincerely pumpkin in the patch.
As a vintage child, I like to watch each year.
the cat peeking over the top is mz Ivy. 

Orange to mango and  sunny greens, colored fabric laying about
trimming left over  from a mango inspired quilt
a block of  which is shown above 
now lives on in a pair of  stuffed pumpkin.
They become more dear
each year, 
as my hands start to ache with too much holding, stitching, and stuffing
Must be time to get out the  unscented Bengay, Salonpas, or cbd salve
and go read a book!

 happy time of pumpkins to you all
try not  eat  all  the  candy  corn !
Be well, Sonja

sending an October sunset your way
