friday musings

Well, the clouds have lifted a bit and we saw a little sun yesterday. I'm not so sure what today is going to be like....but I don't's FRIDAY!!

So when the rain finally stopped I went out and picked this pretty bouquet of Cosmos and Zinnia's.

I've been playing with my crayons. Caran D'Ache crayons....they are heaven and that is the only thing on my Christmas list. I want the box with all 84 colors! It is $165. but I found them for $135. I told DH I only wanted a box of crayons and he said great! Then I gave him the facts and he scratched his head and told me he can get a box of Crayola's.....

....anyway, I used the crayons to create these hearts on fabric, then stitched them free motion style.

Whilst cleaning out the garage I found an old paper mache' pumpkin, so I painted it. I used some industrial strength paper towels to give it a bumpy texture in spots. Then I gave it a rusted star necklace to top it off.
Happy weekend to all!

I love your cosmos and the pumpkin looks like a high dollar boutique item. Great idea. Can I borrow it?
