'Crazy Quilt' Wool Pumpkins...

Crazy Quilt Wool Pumpkins by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com

Crazy Quilt Pumpkins are on my work table...
and I am loving these rich and spicy colors.

Lots of scrappy pieces...
textures and solids, 
most I have hand dyed.

Pieced together and 
Blanket stitched in place.

Curvy stems...
just like in real life...
I love old gnarly stems -
the curvier and rough looking, 
all the better. They give a pumpkin 
a personality.

Add a few wool leaves...

And my favorite...
curly tendrils !
~ I could go a little crazy with these,
but I'll try to limit myself ~

Time to bring it all to life 
and be thinking about a 'finish'...

Hope you're having a lovely creative week...
