It's Time For Thanksgiving!

Can you believe that it is almost Thanksgiving!  I guess time flies when you are having fun!  Pictured above is my "Time Flies" pumpkin that I made using an old mens's suits & vintage buttons.  The stalk is a stick from a branch.  I tucked a 1980's watch with an old cutter doily in the pocket.
This pumpkin was the very first one that I made last year from burlap.  I used an upholstery fabric scrap from my bedroom pillows to complete the ruffle and leaves. Faux berries & a vintage owl broach surround the branch stalk. Not bad for the Queen's first attempt @ pumpkin making~
How does this quilt pumpkin "weigh in"? I made it from a cutter quilt.
Burlap leaves, buttons, & gold ribbon complete this oldie but goodie~
Finally, this little guy was made by my gal pal, Dutchess Melanie, from a vintage orange chenille bedspread.  The leaves are made from the backing of a cutter quilt. She used jute to form the pumpkin shape.

The Cranky Queen & Her Royal Family wish all of my blog friends a  
Blessed & Happy Thanksgiving!
