Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop!

 I decided to join in the Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop sponsored by Carla from Creatin in the Sticks! She always has the neatest blog hops! 
This link will take you to all of the posts for the whole blog hop.

 Back when I signed up, I knew there wouldn't be a problem having some pumpkins to share. I love fall, and I also love sewing for my great granddaughter, Ellie. I had forgotten about the blog hop when I was working on some of these so I was glad I already had some projects done!

 I made Ellie a purple outfit that would work for football, and for Thanksgiving. The gingham side has a tiger on it, and the purple side has the pumpkin. The pumpkin design is from Embroidery Boutique. Their designs always stitch great!



 Of course, I have to include a couple pics of her wearing it! 
I also did another pumpkin outfit for her to wear to daycare. I love the Garanimal sets from WM. They are perfect for little kids. This is another design from Embroidery Boutique, but I did the wording myself.




I did one more pumpkin shirt. The fabric matches some pants Ellie's mom bought, and a friend of mine gave me a piece of the same fabric to match. This design is from Applique Alley. She is such a little ham!


 Now for my table! I wanted to do something different this year. I found a tutorial on Pinterest for the fabric pumpkins. I decided to stack them together to save space. The plates came from Family Dollar, and they look like glass, but they're plastic. I had the other stuff already. So basically this is decorating on a budget! 

My husband loved it, but I will move it all for Thanksgiving dinner. It's just for me to enjoy! 

 Thanks for visiting my blog. I would love to have more followers. I love reading blogs, and I really love getting a comment on mine every now and then.

That little Ellie is the best dressed kid around. Such a sweetie in her fun clothes. Love your table too. I find that the $ store is the best place to shop for holiday ideas.

She is a sweetheart! Who could resist sewing for a cute little darling like that? The pumpkins are so cute on her clothes, and your tablescape looks just lovely. I love things that look more expensive than they are - like plastic plates. =) Thanks for sharing a great idea!

Oh, dear! You make me want to get an embroidery machine. Just think of the possibilities! Your little one is adorable in those pumpkin clothes. When she grows out of them, you'll just have to make her some more :)

Hi Shirley! OMG - could Ellie be any cuter?? I don't think it's possible at all. I remember Garanimals way back - I didn't know they still made them. I have a great-niece here before the end of the year, so I'll have to keep this in mind. I'm glad I found your blog. This is my first time joining in on one of Carla's blog hops, but it sure has been fun. I will follow you on Bloglovin'. I'm glad to do so, and I love to read blog posts too. Happy Thursday! ~smile~ Roseanne
