Favorite Things Party

My sister and I are extremely excited about co-hosting the
Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop Linky Party at Katherine's Corner.
Thank you, Katherine, for inviting us to participate in this wonderful party. You know how much I
love your blog and have been joining in every Thursday! 
Now WE get to co-host the party!
 How wonderful is that?
Right now my favorite things are PUMPKINS!!
When I went to my sister's house in Pennsylvania this past weekend,
we worked on making fabric pumpkins. I love being with my sister
because it is one big craft fest when I'm there. This weekend was no exception and
I came back to Connecticut with several new fabric pumpkins and
lots of pictures of them for the blog.

Here is a green gingham "pumpkin" that we made.
I make them by cutting out a large circle, for this pumpkin about a 24 inch circle. Then I take a large running stitch along the top and pull the thread. It makes the fabric all gathered at the top and then
I just fill it with polyfil  and sew it closed. I add a cut twig for a stem and some artificial leaves.
That's all there is to it. So, of course, I kept making
them all weekend. Everyone will get to see them on our blog
over the course of the next month.


Now let's get on with our Favorite Things Blog Hop. 
This party stays open until midnight on Saturday.
