Pumpkin Patch

Hey there.  Posting is light.  I have been feeling a little off lately and not very crafty. There has been alot of sickness around these parts. I did manage to get on the fabric pumpkin bandwagon and create this little patch.
There are so many great options out there (Sew Spoiled has a little round up here and I would also add Sandy Henderson's Shabby Pumpkins Pattern for sale here, the Simple Wife's with real stems,  and McCalls Patterns has a free download here). I ended up attempting Martha's tutorial with the additional wisdom of Danielle Thompson

The scarecrow is a Value Village find, "vintage 1995, Turner Entertainment". We also found the Tin Man lacking a heart, but are still aching for a lion. 

The pumpkins are made from scraps of fabric from my stash and gold crochet thread.

Oh, how I love orange.
