Good morning everyone! This time last Saturday I was sitting in the garden, recovering from a mammoth marking session, enjoying temperatures of 20 degrees! This week its back to the dining room table, looking out to the garden, which is windswept, wet and cold. But much more seasonal!
I have quite a few weird obsessions and one of them is Pumpkins!! I collect pumpkins of all different sorts - I even have a long lasting real gourd! I have ceramic pumpkins. Glass pumpkins. Fabric pumpkins. Dishes bowls and plates that have a pumpkin theme (either the shape or the motive). I like to eat pumpkins (especially in a pie!!). And of course I like to carve them. But recently I have started to crochet pumpkins - so here is my little pumpkin patch of crochet lovelies (well I like 'em!!)
The patterns came from a great blog planet june so if you would like to make your own little pumpkin patch please check it out! She has some lovely free patterns on the website which I intend to have a go at in the coming weeks. Thanks June!
Keeping with the pumpkin theme, I have some candle-themed pumpkin - ness going on in the evenings now - I have to say (please don't shout at me) that I do have a liking for the darker evenings. So these are now gracing my mantelshelf:
