Just listed this cutie here
The can is a large sized tomato sauce can that I had hubby primer for me and then I painted it and 'grubbied' it up some and added a pumpkin label.
There are 8 various sized pumpkins, the larger ones have leaves and they all have curly Q
tendrils. I inserted some preserved Sweet Annie as well as Spanish moss.
I did start on the fabric acorns with 'real' acorn caps. The pattern I had was really way too large for the caps I found in the park yesterday, luckily the designer gives permission to resize. This is all I have finished so far.
My fingers are too big for a project this small, lol.
Hubby drove me to a local park yesterday afternoon where I knew they had some Oak trees. Not a whole lot of acorns have fallen yet. Took me about 20 minutes to pick up the ones that weren't broken up and then I started to get really nauseous and a headache. I took what I had gathered back to our truck and Tom started up the engine. I told him to hang on, I still wanted to gather some sticks for some snowman projects. After 5 minutes, I was ready to leave. I felt so sick. Tom says he believed it was from all the bending over, standing up, bending over....blood rushing to head, not enough oxygen. I hoped he was right because I really felt bad. We headed home and I laid on the couch with the fan on for about a half an hour. I felt much better by then, so I guess he was right. I was worried that I got that bad virus that is going around. By dinner time I was feeling pretty good so we went out for hot wings & Yuenglings and then to Tom's sister's house for cake and ice cream, as it was her husband's 70th birthday.
Tomorrow, I plan to work on at least one more Autumn project and maybe some more acorns.
