These are made from a vintage Malden Mills long pile fabric.... bought I bought an interesting piece of mohair upholstery fabric with woven in stripes and texture. I dyed some of it... orangey of course... and will be turning out several more pumpkins shortly.

Denise and I saw that there wasn't enough backing fabric for a standard quilt so she sewed the backing to light blue fabric... added new batting... machine quilted the whole thing and added binding in the same fabric as she used on the backing....
So now my daughter has her Grandmother's present back.... Can't wait to give it to her.... she had no idea this was in the works!!

My son has plans for his kitchen/ dining area.... He wants to add a combination of cupboards and serving buffet... but first the wallpaper and chair rails have to go. So that's what we did this afternoon. There have been times when stripping wallpaper was the chore from hell... but not this time!! The surface layer came off easily and with a little spraying with water the bottom layer is gone too! He will get some wallpaper glue remover and fill any holes . Then prime and paint. He wants to add two sconces above the serving buffet. So adding electricity will be next weekends task!! Good thing they know how!!
