Blue Pumpkins ...

 Hello my dear friends,

Autumn and pumpkins go together like cookies and cream or fish and chips, so of course I was going to make a few of them this Fall again.

 I also had two customorders for pumpkins placed and it was nice because my customers trusted me to make them something lovely. Appart from the color, which was blue and that the pumpkins should have silverware stems, everything else was up to me. I found a piece of cotton velvet in a beautiful shade of blue and the other bits and pieces like antiques crystals, seam binding and some bits that I needed to make my velvet pumpkin leaves, I already had at hand. It didn't take me too long to create the Autum fruit and one is already at it's new home and the only is still on it's journey all the way to England. I have already shared them on Instagram but not yet here, so that is what I am doing today.

The first pumpkin is already at it's new home ...

And the second one will hopefully arrive at it's new home soon.

These are not the only pumpkins that I have made so far. 
I made a few from linen and a few other ones that are larger than I normally would. They are also not the the same style I normally would do but different, the less is more style. No sparkle and more subtle. I will be sharing them soon here on Todolwen but that is again that is all for today.

It is so nice that you took the time to stop by today, here at Todolwen and I hope you have enjoyed your short visit.

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

Have a peaceful, safe and creative day.
