It's A SinCeRe PuMpkIn PaTcH..

Well I had to buy space for my photos for the year..It was 20 bucks to add 10 GB for the year..when I went into my Picasa Account, I had no idea how many photos I had on there...and I couldn't delete them..or at least couldn't see if I could, so I bought space..I did try deleting old photos from some of my entrys..funny photos, cartoons etc..and nothing..Any way..Here is what I have been working on since Friday...I finished up my little fabric pumpkins and they are scented with "Jack O' Lantern they smell yummy..I made 12..but took one down to the post office for my post master lady named Brenda, she automatically smelled it..she loves my goodies and it is cheap advertisement..

I finished up my 5 paper mache ones yesterday..I painted, sanded and used my brie wax on them..2 are sugar pumpkins..and I have 2 pesky crows that sit atop them..I will try to purchase 3 more before thursday so they all have a crow on top..
I think they turned out rather nicely..:)
I have made 30 pillow tucks..I still have to finish up 7 of them tonight..gotta sew the decorative binding and the backing and then plop myself on the couch and stuff them and sew them up..I also added little tags that I hand punched the tag out and stamped them with little halloween/christmas stamps..I love the way these turned out..I used 100% wool felt for the fronts and put that decorative seam binding around each of them and then coordinating fabrics for the backs of them...The Larger pillows are $15.oo like above or if they have detailed stitching on them as they take longer to make and more supplys are used..
these smaller ones are 10.00 each with the little welcome home ones.(2) they are 5.00 each..they are the crossed stitched machine ones..

I even found time to do some more machine embroidering yesterday..all of them but the snowman ones in the back are new as of yesterday...

These are great to tuck in anywhere and I think the seam binding really added to the finish of the on the photos to see the details...
Well it has been a bit blustery the past 2 days..been blowing the little whirly wigs from the trees and leaves off the porch..oh it is beginning to look alot like fall now..we are getting gorgeous weather though so we are getting a great indian it..had 2 fires since I last wrote..only one loggers as we call it...just enough to take the edge off...the animals love it...including the stinky puppy...;) We took a wonderful walk today..will share the photos tomorrow...I also had malware on my blog and couldn't access it till I let hubby do it..If Krazy Kraft Lady is reading this. you have malware on your blog that you need to be aware of..I have google chrome and it won't let me on your blog..doesn't mean there is a virus....but it tells me there is potentially something on your blog that can hurt my computer...I still can't get on my friend Shirleys blog...I can access it if I choose too..but my google chrome is telling me not too..we have a great anti virus system, not all anti virus programs detect malware.. my computer came back clean..but because I was linked to hers(krazy kraft lady) she has the malware on her blog..her blog is actually hosting it..This is the warning that google has listed about her blogspot.

I was digging through my recipes and since it pumpkin time and we all love pumpkin these are the best pumpkin muffins ever..infact I think I will make these for tonight..

Pumpkin Chip Muffins
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 can (16 ounces) canned pumpkin
1-1/2 cups vegetable oil (I use one cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar and pumpkin and oil (applesauce) until smooth. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined cups 3/4 full.. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to wire rack. Yield: about 24 standard-size muffins..
I use the little glass muffin cups and I usually get about 12..cause you can get more in them...oh they are so moist and yummy with a tall glass of cold milk..Enjoy!!!:)

I wonder sometimes cause there are several sites I get booted off the internet as soon as they start downloading. I get so frustrated!
