smashing pumpkins and pointy things

it's been a crazy week so far 

medical appointments, working on assorted household projects, getting ready to hang a quilt show in Denver and now only a month away from the charity auction I'm chairing  --- I feel like I haven't had much time to relax and just create

I did manage to get all of the pumpkins fused on this piece

and I've even started working on the stitching --- of course this means I'm impatient and want to see more progress on it instantly, but more its a case of wanting to have more time to work on it too so I can actually enjoy the process

this is coming along too -- there is actually a yellow square at each end of it right now, but I neglected to take a picture of it yesterday when I finished that second one -- oops!

the piece is now about 4 3/4 inches long, so it is slowly getting toward that length that it needs to be to become a bracelet!

I've been knitting right along on a Christmas project and hit a major milestone on it a couple of days ago -- yippee!!  and that big landscape quilt I'm making is coming along too, so some things are getting done, just not fast enough to suit me!

today's work includes signs for the quilt show, review of items received for the auction and probably a trip to the store  --  time to get to it

Love the pumpkins! Love the bracelet!

I have a neighbor two doors down with her first baby due on Halloween, so pumpkins have been on my mind: seems to me someone needs an orange and black hat (and the colors would go well on their baby.)
