Pumpkins Don't Have To Be Orange ...

Hello my dear friends,

pumpkins don't always have to be orange as we all know.

I am not a very 'pink' person but after making my first harvest of new pumpkin pincushions this year and reading an article about a young girl (in Kansas I think it was) growing pink pumpkins, I wanted to see what I could come do myself with that color. I decided to take another look in my chest of drawers to see what I could find. I was lucky! I found some beautiful shaded fabric and right away went to work on making a few more pumpkin pincushions. Now they are done and that is what I am sharing with you today.

Take a look!

From cotton to velvet and linen, all in beautiful shades of  dusty pink.

Pink Pumpkin 2 ...

Pink Pumpkin 3 ...

And again last but not least ...

Pink Pumpkin 4 ...

I couldn't be happier with they way my little dusty pink Autumn fruit have turned out. I love every single one of them because they are all sort of the same but yet different in their own way. These little lovelies are pincushions but they would look just a pretty as what they are ... little pink pumpkins.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by here at Todolwen today. It is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. What a lovely idea for the stem! I so love your creativity!

  2. They are beautiful, and I do love pink and pumpkins so together I'm swooning, Karen.
    In Australia we have Queensland Blue pumpkins.

  3. So Pretty and so "you" eventhough you aren't a pink person. I scrolled through the posts and as soon as I saw the photo, even before I'd read the title, I knew it was your post. Your style shines through. It has your signature touch. You've done it again. Love the silver stem. Hugs,

  4. Oh yes! The pink pumpkins get my vote. The crinkled seam binding paired with your gorgeous leaves melt my heart.

    Happy harvesting!
