Pumpkin Patch

     Don't you just love the sight of a pumpkin field. I love pumpkins! My mom, sister and I went to our local pumpkin patch and picked up a few for our Pumpkin Party this weekend. We have about 30 people coming over to carve and have fun.... keep you posted on that one.

Which one should come home with me?

Me with the pumpkins at The Red Barn Market.

       The three of us had a really great day, the sun was shining, one of those perfect fall days.  My sister has already carved some of her pumpkins. Using different stencils she carves all different characters, this year her favorite is Alice in Wonderland.

     We just got our Accuquilt Go! in at the store, can I find time this weekend to play? I'm sure if I try really hard there will be time. I can't wait to use the tumbler dye, it has always caught my eye. There are so many projects that can be done with this cutting system.....hmmm new club?  I'm just learning that I LOVE gadgets, this is trouble.

I leave for Houston in.... 6 DAYS! I'm starting to get excited now and can't wait to see what's new in the quilting and sewing world. My sister is REALLY excited, she has a game plan for all the booths she wants to see. It is probably a good thing we can't buy from the booths directly! She'll be coming home with heavier bags than when we left.
I'm hoping to be sending some blogs from Houston, I will be taking lots of classes and ordering new "stuff" for the store, you'll be the first to know!

Well better sign off, have a great weekend everyone.




  1. I've never seen a real pumpkin patch where the pumpkins are still on the vine in the field. It looks like you had a great day and your sisters pumpkins are wonderful!

    My quilt shop has a block of the month every year where they cut out some of the blocks with the GO cutter.

  2. Time to go to the to see what dies you have!! :o) Have fun in Houston!! Lucky you and your sister!! Take LOTS of pictures!!


    A good blog on Houston's Market!! Enjoy!

  4. Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Can't wait to see what you bring back from Houston! Your show and share will be over the top! I have a wish list for different Go dies so can't wait to see what you have in stock!
