Today is my day to participate in the Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop hosted by Carla of Creatin’ in the Sticks! Thank you, Carla, for pulling all the bloggers together and allowing us to show our punkin’ colors!!

I chose to incorporate my love for embroidery into this hop and digitized a couple of designs to use. I will also share a couple of recipes with you as well.

For my pumpkin picking, I decided to embroider a kitchen towel. The inspiration for this design was in a bundle of fall art work I purchased. I decided to make the pumpkin and leaf applique instead of a fill.  I also stitched a “recipe card” to another towel. I was going to write a recipe on this, but decided to let the winner (oh – did I mention there is a giveaway?!! ?) write a recipe of their liking – just in case they wanted to gift it to someone.

I purchased these towels last year for a craft show and stitched a LOT of Christmas towels and these recipe towels. The Pumpkin Spice design can be purchased in my shop here.













Then I decided I “needed” a new fall candle wrap. I digitized this for flameless candles. I have a lot of candle wraps on my website. This one is a little different from the others and I’m really liking it!! It is available for purchase in my shop here.


Here is it is in action!!


And here are two recipes I found for those pumpkin lovers amongst us. In all honesty, I’m not a huge pumpkin fan, but these recipes sound so good I may just give them a try. Or I may try them with my favorite fall (and really anytime!) vegetable – sweet potatoes!!
