More Autumn Fruit ...

 Hello my dear friends,

 I have been busy and a few more of my newest pumpkins are now done. 

They all turned out so nice with that neat and somewhat quirky soft brown tulle fabric. I made four as of right now and I am not sure if I will be making any more just yet. You have already seen the first one I made and today I am sharing the other three with you.

 Here they are ...

With pumpkins done for the moment, I have turn my attention to something a little different now. Last Winter I made a few snowmen bodies but not finished them, so that is what I am going to start working on now.

Want a little sneak peek? ... Here it is ...

 Eventhough it is still summer time and it's hot outside and I really am enjoying it, I am already looking forward to the first snow fall of the year, so working on my snowmen is perfect for me right now.

My four pumpkins are going to be listed in my Etsy shop this evening in case any of you might be interested in one of them.

They are now listed!

It was so nice of you to stop by and visit me here at Todolwen and I hope you have enjoyed your short stay.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.

I Just Couldn't Resist, My Newest Autumn Fruit ...

 Hello my dear friends,

I love old tarnished silver ware (I have a lot of it) and I love ot work with it. 

 I really wanted wanted to work with it again but had no idea of what to do with it. I have used it as pumpkin stems in the past but wasn't really thinking of making any pumpkins this year ...

 ... but then I found this really neat tulle fabric recently that changed my mind about that.

It is a softer tulle, in a lovely shade of brown that is glittered but that isn't all. It also has small shiny metal balls/beads attached to it! That made it a little elegant but also a tiny bit quirky and fun too and I just knew I had to make a pumpkin with it afterall. It took me a little bit to the look I was going for. I tried all sorts of bits and pieces for the embellishment and in the end I went with a simple bow made from hand dyed seam binding in a dark green. My newest pumpkin was done, I was very happy with the way it turned out and that is what I am sharing with you today.

And this is my newest pumpkin and I hope you like it.

Isn't it just so neat? I just love the little metal balls/beads.

And since I have a lot more pretty old tarnished teaspoons in my drawer, a few more pumpkins will be growing and of course I will share with you again. Just in case anyone is interested, they will be availale in my Etsy shop by the end of the week.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me here at Todolwen and I hope you had a nice time.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
