Yesterday was our bimonthly meeting of Casey's Quilters, and it was also Pumpkinfest. Kay hosts this event every year, and each member is supposed to bring a pumpkin dish and a pumpkin project to work on. We got our fill of pumpkin--there was pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin fudge, 2 kinds of pumpkin dip, and pumpkin penne with kielbasa for supper. Everything was so good!
The project I worked on yesterday was a paper pieced Halloween wall hanging. There are 3 each of the pumpkins, cats, and bats. I was happy with the pumpkin, but I'm going to have to start all over with the cat and the bat. The cat doesn't look too bad in this picture; but from a little bit of a distance, the cat is more difficult to distinguish, and the bat is just a black blob. The pattern called for dark and medium blues, and my darks were a little too dark. So now it is back to the stash!
