Wooly Pumpkin Pieces

I have been sick with a bug or something, but I still need to keep my hands busy.
I cannot just sit and watch tv, it is not in my nature. I have to be really, really sick for that to happen;)

I decided to make up some wool projects as gifts, something fun and simple.
The candle mat is a design from the new Whimsicals book.
Lynette was sweet enough to get me a signed copy at the show in Pittsburg. I made up my own little item, since i am not up to doing anything big or sitting at the machine. I left the sides empty so the person can put a candle or any other prim goodies on it without covering a design. Do you think it looks ok, this way?

The second item came from a pumpkin in Gourdy's Gang penny rug. I won it on a giveaway from Brenda of Pumpkin Patch Primitives. I love the pattern, but it is too big for now. The fun thing about this pattern, is you can use the pumpkins you like and change them around and make new items, from the one pattern.

I decided to make one pumpkin that can hang on the wall, as is. Later I will do the tiered pumpkins, at least some of them. When I finished these two pieces, I started one for me. I am making a wall hanging from my tall kitty and pumpkin, that I made up as a punch.

They both look fabulous Debbie! I like how you made the one pumpkin from Gourdy's Gang... and I love the fact that you left some space on the kitty mat. Folks usually decorate with a candle or pumpkin to accent the piece! Simply GREAT stuff!!! Hope you feel better soon! ~Sharon

hope you are feeling better soon! I love the candle mat and think it's a great idea to leave some space for people to put things without covering the design... Thanks for the kind comment on my winter print!... Donna

You really make such lovely pieces. I've never seen anything of yours yet that wasn't special. Love the witch. As for flat pcs. I use to make mostly pillows then one of my buyers told me she wished I'd make flat pcs. She said she only has so many door knobs and the flat pcs go anywhere. I do alright with the flat pcs and less work.
