Pumpkins and Acorns

Since the weather has really taken a turn to the fall, that is also the inspiration for my next project. Acorns and pumpkins.

Making a pumpkin like this is very easy. I made a little ball, and then after stuffing it, I pulled a thread from top to bottom and  back, a bit tight, so that the shape became the shape of a pumpkin.  A little leave and stem were added and that’s my pumpkin!

And a few acorns:

In the meantime the house is filling with this gorgeous smell. My son is again cooking one of his Jamie Oliver recipes, so tonight we are again going to have a wonderful dish on the table!

Have a great weekend!

Groetjes, Dorien

Wat zijn ze weer mooi, je haakfiguurtjes. En ook dat blad, zo warm van kleur.
Mag ik je zoon een dagje lenen, bofferd! Complimenten voor hem (:
