 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.

  1. Love your snowmen and acorns! (if you are ever in need of caps, let me know, we have a ba-jillion!) The same thing happens to my mom when she bends over, glad you are ok. ~*~Lisa
