It's a Pumpkin-to-be

This is Cindy's autumn round robin block. As you can see, it came to me already three dimensional. I was the first to stitch on it; I think the ones who stitch later will have an even harder time.

Cindy said it was to be The Great Pumpkin, and I'm not really someone who does Halloween, so I put a bunch of harvest-type stuff on it and some copper and natural materials.

My husband really liked the spider on its web, for some reason. That was the part that took the least amount of time, too.

There were eight total sections; I did two and two seams, and chose an edge because it was easier to work on. I don't know how whoever gets the middle is going to be able to gather everything together and get in there to do it. Anyway, it's mailed out to Cobi today and I hope Cindy likes what I've done.

Hi Meg, I was just checking out your blog and I just thought I would let you know I love what you did on my pumpkin. When I named it the great pumpkin I did even think of Halloween. I hope everyone is following your lead and stays away from Halloweeny stuff.

Thanks, Cindy! I'm glad you like it.
