Frost on the Pumpkin........

The weather was miserable today.....
Cold and Rainy!

A good day to stay inside and do some handwork.

I'd been wanting to make a pumpkin with a creamy off-white fabric blend I found in a remnant bin.....
It has a bit of sparkle.

I picked up an inexpensive bag of lace at a thrift shop.
 Not just any  ol'  lace.....this was wedding dress lace with lots of sequins and pearl beads....just beautiful!

So I proceeded to add some
"Frost" on the Pumpkin............

A lacy ruffle around the pumpkin stem.....

What do you think?  

I'm still contemplating if I went overboard adding too much "frost".

But yet, I'm thinking of adding some coffee stained gauzy roses to give her another texture and color element  while bringing down the fufu-ness.


I'd love it if you'd share your thoughts.....



  1. So beautiful! I love all the lace and pearl beads.

  2. Less is more....i think it is beautiful as it is now.But i am from Europe ;)



Please comment so I know you've stopped by.
I'd love to return the visit. Hugs, BettyJean
