That Little Black One ...

Hello my dear friends,

I am sure you all know that little black dress that every girl should have in her closet?! ... Well, that can also be applied to pumpkins. I was asked to make a little black pumpkin and I did and since one can't be on it's own and alone, I made three of them and that is what I am sharing with you today.

Here are my little black Autumn fruit ...

Pumpkin  'M' ...

... a little black velvet pumpkin.

(This one is already spoken for.)

Pumpkin 'N' ...

This pumpkin is made from a lovely black fabric that has strands of midnight blue threads woven in it and a tiny bit of sparkle too. 

and Pumpkin 'O' ...

... another velvet pumpkin.

Do you see the bow made from dark purple seam binding? 
That colored seam binding came to be when I was trying to dye some things black. Yes, I did say black and it didn't work out but I will share more about that in my next post.

 My pumpkin harvest is now slowly but surely coming to an end. I have one more batch of Autumn fruit to share with you after tomorrow's post and then that will be most probably will be the last for this year because the next amazing time of the year is on it's way and I need to get busy with that. (Jungle bells, jingle bells ... it's the most wonderful time of the year ... let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!)

Thank you for stopping by and visit me here at Todolwen.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
