The cool weather put me in the mood to get ready for fall/ Halloween. I didn't feel up to digging through the crawl space for my Halloween decor so I just took a drive to my local JoAnn Fabric's to get some fabric to make pumpkins. These pumpkins are great because you can use home dec fabric...... you know those small squares of the old stuff they can't get any more???? Well that is what I'm talking about. This weekend they are marked half price which brings them to $1 a piece. So of course that just made my day! Enough talking................
Are they not the cutest thing you have seen???? Well I can not take the credit for them I got the idea from Sunshine In My Soul . The directions are also on that link. These make a wonderful decoration for the table top, mantel, or front porch decorations.
Hope you enjoyed this blog as much as I have! Also if you would like to purchase some pumpkins instead of making them I will be selling them for $5 a piece! Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Once the paint dried.... well almost dry I pulled the tape off. I would suggest letting the container sit for a while to make sure the paint has a chance to dry. I did have a small amount of over spray on the inside that I had to clean off with a paper towel.

The sunflower wall hanging I hand embroidery for my Grandmother. She has a wall in her home that she hangs different things on throughout the year. I finished it off with Yo Yo's to make the center of each sunflower. I then added the yellow border and machine quilted it! Best thing is I didn't have to buy anything to do this one!

Things have changed in the Tackett House, I guess it would be better put that the Tackett House has changed. We moved into this awesome house recently. So everything is working it's way out of boxes. We have started to get the garage cleaned out and stuff to the basement. Tonight I was able to work on a simple table runner (which has no pattern) for my mother in law's birthday. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to find safety pins to get it quilted on my machine. Once things get settled stay tuned for more pictures of the house and and the quilts in it.

This is a quilt I made for a friend's niece. It is made with Batik's and at first I did not like it at all. But once I quilted it I ended up liking it more.
Thanks for checking in..... stop back to see more.

I figured I would start this and share the wonderful quilting projects I do! Of course I have been hard at work for the past few week
I recently made a large bag to carry all my junk in, including my small purse.... this bag is the diaper bag designed by Amy Butler. I left out all the extra pockets and the cell phone pocket because my cell phone will not fit. It has duck cloth in between the two layers so it will hold up no matter what I put in.
For the past weeks it has been snowing here like crazy. In our back yard we have snow up to your hips at some places and up to your knees in the rest. The dogs are not so crazy about all the snow since they are so short. But it does give you time to sew and craft away. So please stay tuned to see what else I post soon!
