Whatca Working on Wednesday

I am really late posting this. I have had this metal tree for some time and have been looking for ornaments to hang on it for every season. I found these cute pumpkins on aprimitivegathering's blog. If you want to make your own she has all the instructions there.

Aren't they just the cutest? And you cn use so much of your own creativity after the basic recipe.

Fabric pumpkins are all over my crafting table. It is amazing to me the process of sewing,staining,and baking takes. A friend of mine(Hi Lisa) and I went to the Apple Festival in Franklin PA a couple of weeks ago. At one booth we were talking to the owner and an artist for the shop. One lady picked up a make do and wanted to know the price. She turned up her nose at the price. The owner said she wouldn't sell it to her anyway (after she had left) since she didn't appreciate all the work that went into making it. So of course we then had a conversation about how much time things actually takes to make a make-do. No pun intended. But we determined when you are good at what you do it really does look easy.

Here's my make do. I love it. It is sort of a mix of several I've seen.

Have a nice evening. Check out Leslie's blog for more WWW projects.

Your pumpkin tree is so did a great job. Glad you liked the can make snowmen for Christmas using the same pattern just change the nose and paint them cream instead of orange.
