    From A Decoration

    Something inside me wants to do orange stuff lately.

    This will be a little wall hanging somewhere in my house this Fall. I traced the shape from one of my Halloween decorations. I made each section a different fabric, and I really like how they go together. The plastic sheet is to keep the pieces from curling.

    Not sure yet what else I want to put with the pumpkin.

    great idea
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You could get some silk leaves and stitch just to hold and give it a 3 D look. Your pumpkin is very nice.
